I'm trying to write a program which would get information from a webpage and display the information on my desktop sort of like a widget. I kind of remember there being something like this already made, but for the life of me I can't remember what it's calledDoes anyone know?
I need to extract the Info from the RC column for the first 4 players of liverpool. The test code i have does the same,but can anyone show me a better way of doing it.I could do it easily with gawk -F"|" and print the respective column,but i need to do this in perl.
I want to write a script that will extract information from a db table and store that information to a csv file. Basically, I have imported data into a table, I want to save this data to a csv file for later processing. How do I connect to the db and extraxt information from the table?
Been searching endlessly for a command line tool/utility that downloads all the components of a webpage, given a URL. As in,
should fetch the base html and all the required components necessary for rendering the page, which includes all the images, css, js, advertisements etc. Essentially it should emulate the browser. The reason I'm looking for such a tool is to measure the response time of a website for a given URL from the command line. I know of several GUI tools like HTTPFox, Ethereal/Wireshark that serve the same purpose. But none in CLI.
There are wget and curl. But from what I understand they can just fetch the contents of the given URL and don't parse the html to download all other components. wget does do recursive download. But the problem is, it goes ahead and fetches all those <a href> pages too, which I don't want. Given a URL, the browser gets the html first, parses it, and then downloads each component (css, js, images) that it needs to render the page. Is there a command line tool/script that can accomplish the same task?
When I try to check for updates and also when I try and press "reload" in the Synaptic package manager, I get this error: Failed to fetch [URL] Failed to fetch [URL] Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
Sometimes, I also get this red triangle with an exclamation point in my toolbar thing that tells me I have repository problems, or something along those lines. I'm assuming they're all related. I've been looking around, and I noticed people having similar errors and just being able to uncheck something in my Software settings, or something like that. In my case, I'm not exactly sure what to uncheck though, don't wanna screw anything up any more! I'm using 10.10, and I believe I'm using Maverick. I'm not sure what that means though. I've only recently started using Linux.
Whenever i go to the update manager and check for updates i get this
Failed to download repository information
Check your Internet connection. i am connected to the Internet and the connection is obviously fine because i am posting this, same thing happens when i go through terminal to i am currently running ubuntu 11.04
W:Failed to fetch [URL] 404 Not Found [IP: 126.96.36.199 80] , W:Failed to fetch [URL] 404 Not Found [IP: 188.8.131.52 80] , E:Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead. not sure why its not allowing me to download these packages through the update manager. Im fairly sure these are default sources that come with Maverick and would very much like to have these packages.
Whenever I go to update I press check and I get "Failed to download repository information Check your Internet connection." Well obviously I don't need to check my internet connection if I'm posting this thread. I am using Google Chrome and it's as fast as can be. When I run
I am beginner in Ubuntu. I am unable to install any software. For example, whenever I try to use Ubuntu software center to install VLC media player, it shows following notice: Failed to download repository information Check your internet connection
I searched on google about installing software on Ubuntu and tried to use the command I found for installing VLC media player on terminal. First I typed command sudo apt-get update And I get this on my terminal ----- Ign [URL] lucid Release.gpg ..... E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
Then I typed the following command to install VLC : sudo apt-get install vlc vlc-plugin-pulse mozilla-plugin-vlc Then I get the following information on terminal: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Couldn't find package vlc
It's up in the top "toolbar" of Natty and it has a red exclamation mark inside. It tells me my "update information is outdated" and so, naturally, I clicked it. It opens my "Update Manager" which tells me "there are no updates to install" and "The package information was last updated 11 days ago."
So I click the "check" button and the following pops up in a window: Failed to download repository information Check your Internet connection.
Code: W:Failed to fetch [URL] 404 Not Found , W:Failed to fetch [URL] 404 Not Found , E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
My internet connection, contrary to the information provided, is fantastic (I've also tried 2 different locations).
I upgraded my ubuntu 10.04 to 10.10 after its release. It was working fine. But today I saw its giving an error while upgrading. I am not very much efficient in ubuntu so cant understand why this error is. It is giving as failed to download repository information. check your internet connection. But my internet is working fine.
How exactly do you hide information when downloading with WGET e.g. is there a parameter that can hide the download location, or extra information and only show the important information such as progress of the download?
I keep getting a red triangle at the top right corner of my screen that says I need to update my software, but when I run update manager, I get an error window with the title of this post saying the following in its details:
I tried following the instructions in this post http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1787167, but even though I successfully switch servers, I still get the same update manager failure.
Hi, let me state at the outset that I am a very new Ubuntu user.My computer proficiency is above intermediate, and I have some rudimentary (and most likely outdated) knowledge of *nix.I am using a fresh install of Natty Narwhal as the sole OS on an Acer dual-core AMD64 system.When going to the update manager, it tells me that the last update was 12 days ago.When selecting "Check", I get "Failed to Download Repository Information". The details are below.
