I am new to Debian Wheezy and I can't install anything. Ever time I try to install a .deb file I get the message saying that installation is not supported by backend. Also I'm unable to install from the terminal; it always says something like "path not found" or "file doesn't exist" (I'm on my phone so I don't have an exact error detail). Everything I've read tells me to install something to fix the problem but I can't install them due to the same error.
I have a system that has an intermittent issue with copying files. Below is the error that occurs. Error while copying "<filename>" There was an error coping the file into network:/// Operation not support by backend
The user has Ubuntu 8.04. They are using the Nautilus window to copy files (drag and drop) from a CD/DVD or USB device. The directory they are copying onto is a RAID0 device with approximately 2T of space, and more than enough space to take the files. The permissions for the drive and folders are set to the user.
This occurs randomly and is very frustrating. We cannot duplicate it and when it does occur, it will happen once, then work fine. I've been checking forums and help files all over, but find nothing similar. The only stuff I find is if it's a new install and the permissions haven't been set correctly. Even a confirmation that someone else has seen this before.
I want to install GTK+. I see there are also numerous dependencies, which i've been slowly tackling, and the Cairo package has been particularly difficult. It claims the following upon ./configure --prefix=/usr configure: WARNING: Could not find libpng in the pkg-config search path checking whether cairo's PNG backend could be enabled... no configure: error: requested PNG backend could not be enabled I've done some searching and found that libpng.pc is in my /usr/lib/pkgconfig/ directory and that the following commands don't do the trick:
I've been using Ubuntu and Mint for a few years now, and I want to try Linux on my HP Stream7 Tablet. I was very excited to learn that Debian 8.0 and later has support for 32 bit UEFI on 64 bit Processors and went ahead and installed the multiarch version of 8.2. It works, but I have no GUI (Just a command line) and no WIFI connection. It seems the GUI didn't install and the WiFi card is not supported. I have found a driver for the wifi card but don't know how to install this driver. URL....
I'm running succesfully Debian 6.0 after first trying Debian 5.0 and ran into missing partitions. This is solved by using Debian 6.0 (Beta 2).
Now it's NVidia's turn: Under Ubuntu (yes...i know it by now...) you had to install a proprietary driver for NVidia to ensure that 3D was supported. What about Debian? There's nothing like this under Debian? How do i know if 3D is supported?
I am trying to install gnome-mplayer to see if I update it, for he not catching more when I play the videos, and it is asking me to have at least one "backend "to compile Pango. I do not understand this output. Have you tried installing the source Cairo.ttf but solves nothing. Cairo is installed as described but do not understand this output.

When I try to upgrade, I always get this message: "E: /var/cache/apt/archives/linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64_2.6.32-35_i386.deb: failed in write on buffer copy for backend dpkg-deb during `./lib/modules/2.6.32-5-amd64/kernel/drivers/net/s2io.ko'"
My home connection is dialup via an 8-bit ISA modem. I plan to use the old box with the modem in it as a gateway and do my actual work on this laptop. Connection away from home is not so easy to get in my area.
SuSE 6.1 has no problem operating the modem, so the hardware works. SuSE 6.1 can't seem to make anything else work though. How can I configure Debian to see and operate this modem?
SuSE sees the modem on /dev/ttyS1. The same chat script does nothing on jessie. I'm guessing that jessie is just not seeing ISA.
I'm able to install packages onto the box via a usb drive but that's only on the days when the local coffee shop's wi-fi actually works, which is rare.
I'm running debian 5.3(i think) I've tried installing skype, google chrome and flash player. All of them are .deb files and on everyone it says "archive type not supported", what should I do to install them?
I've just tried to install X on my new debian system which had a nasty side effect. I can see the bootcycle up to "Waiting for /dev to be fully populated." and then the screen switches into a display mode unsupported by my display. I've had problems like this many times before because the display returns it's capabable of resolutions like 2048x1536, which it just isnt. I've had to disable autodetection whenever using this display. One thing to note thought is that it's NOT X that's messing up the display. It's setting the wrong display mode even before the filesystems are mounted. And I've already uninstalled X with no change either. Also recovery(single user) mode has no proper display output either.
once again banging the head against a brick wall, entered the following commands in to client and server, but get the above message on both, is there something wrong with the script, or thw computers? mount 192.168.1.68:/export/shared /mnt/nfs_on_debian
I bought SIMCOM GSM Serial modem . It is working well with Debian/Ubuntu OS; also I am able to control it using Minicom,Cu ..etc . Now I am interested to buy usb gsm modem.which USB gsm modem works well with Debian and ubuntu OS ? .
I am thinking about buying Belkin's Network USB Hub so that I can plugin usb devices and share it over network(Debian based computers). The device's website and spec can be found at: [URL]. Is this device supported by Debian Etch or Lenny? Did anyone used it on any versions of Debian where it worked? Is there a Linux driver for it?
Brand new to Linux. Just installed Debian 5.0.6 (64-bit). Upon booting up, the screen is all black with a gray floating screen that says "Input Not Supported". My guess is that the video card is not supported by Debian, but maybe somebody knows a way around this problem... (I know for a fact that both video card and LCD work fine in Windows XP.)

I'm having trouble implementing SSL on a AvantFax login screen. I've created the the certificates and keys and have them stored in /etc/apache2/ssl and I'm sort of stuck now. I've been following a guide but any changes to the conf files leads to errors. The system I'm using is Debian 5.0
I have just set up the above OS, however, installation did not find my network and therefore APT additional software & security updates could not be accessed.The network was simple to setup post installation.I have uncommented a few sources in the sources list file but obviously that does not,in itself, suffice to get accessability. I am also unable to configure my supported HP printer and I assume that can only be done with an additional package via APT.

Before I upgraded to Squeeze, I was using a USB Soundcard. With help of forums I did some manual tweaking to force system to use this card, instead of my default snd-hda-intel card, because it wasn't supported. However, this was a long time ago and I can't find what I did. Now, my on-board sound card worked perfectly on Debian 6.0 live DVD, but the installed system is silent. Any ideas how could I trace the problem?
When I play an MP3 - the player's silent. Speaker-test says:
I'd like to make a complete switch to Debian. One of the things holding me back is not knowing the state of play regarding sound card support. I've been fiddling around on and off for three years trying to get my M-Audio FireWire Solo to work in Ubuntu without much joy. I think there might be greater support for USB sound cards but I'm not certain of this. Onboard cards aren't OK because in my experience these pick up too much noise. After years of using balanced audio lines it's pretty much impossible to go back. That said, a PCIe card isn't completely out of the picture if I can get balanced outs with it.
I'm planning on plugging KRK powered monitors via XLR or TRS cables into the sound card. But my preference at this point is firmly with USB sound cards. Is there an up-to-date list I can check of supported sound cards in Debian? Can anyone here provide a testimonial of their experience? It's important to note that I'm after playback only. I don't want to record ever. That should hopefully make things easier. I'd be looking at using Debian wheezy.
I have a Canon Powershot SD1400IS camera and I didn't realize that they don't support Linux. I run Debian and my old camera, a fuji FinepixA210 at least shows up as a removable volume. I double click and I can get to my pics and download them without any trouble. I picked up my new camera from airmiles and never thought to check if they supported Linux. Maybe a card reader would be the answer, but I'd rather not have that expense, if there is another way.
I need to convert a .jbg image to something else more 'generic' (.jpg, .png) but i discover that thar format seems not to be supported by default. Searching i found that i need jbigkit, so i download it but know dont know how to make it work?
How well is the Linksys WMP300N PCI card supported in Squeeze? I have read that the US versions have Broadcom chipsets and others use Atheros chipsets. Mine is US as far as I can tell. The FCC ID is Q87-WMP300N. It is a PCI card. That's all I can tell you since the board has a metal cover over all the chips.
I'm using Debian 503 Lenny, Gnome. My machine, She-Beast, is a 2001 Compaq Presorry-o, 1100GHz Celery. With every, that is, E V E R Y, attempt to install any .deb, it fails. When I 2x click on the .deb icon, or when I r-click -->Open with archive manager, I get a dialog window: "Could not open "(filename).deb". Archive type not supported." If I use root terminal, dpkg -i, similar responses come up.
I installed today (fresh install) the latest version of squeeze, and after installing kuser, I attempted to run the program (of course as root), so that I can start managing accounts with my preferred application. However, this is what I got when I attempted to run the program:

Recently, I installed VVVVVV and discovered that when attempting to use fullscreen mode, the monitor displays "video mode not supported" for 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, and auto.
