I am using since from last septmber Ubuntu 8.04 LTS which I keep update through Update Manager on daily basis, I am a beginner with Linux systems. Today Update Manager offered 9 updates but one of them, language-pack-en can't be selected from the list and can't be upgraded. If I try to install it manually from terminal session (sudo apt-get install language-pack-en) I get this message :
fabrizio@fabrizio-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install language-pack-en Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming.
Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that the package is simply not installable and a bug report against that package should be filed. The following information may help to resolve the situation:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
language-pack-en: Depends: language-pack-en-base (>= 1:8.04+20100117) but 1:8.04+20090105 is to be installed E: Broken packages fabrizio@fabrizio-desktop:~$
I reinstalled with Synaptic language-pack-en-base and it seems to be updated to last version 8.04+20090105
How do I remove all the language packs installed with Firefox 4? I have English US, English GB and English South Africa, and I don't need any of them. As of now, I can only disable them. I can't find any mention of them in Synaptic. Firefox 4 on fully-updated Ubuntu 10.04 x86-64 here. I just saw that there is a FF4 'Mega Thread'; They are in /usr/lib/firefox-extensions/. I deleted *.xpi files and it worked without issues.
I stucked on a weired problem in Lucid, I am trying to install a recent update i got while pressing the Reload button in synaptic is that of language-pack-gnome-en. It is not installing and saying this message :
Quote: language-pack-gnome-en: Depends: language-pack-gnome-en-base but it is not going to be installed Depends: language-pack-en-base (>=1:10.04+20100714) but 1:10.04+20100422 is to be installed
And when i am trying to install language-pack-gnome-en the following error is coming:
Quote: language-pack-gnome-en-base: Depends: language-pack-gnome-en but it is not going to be installed.
I just posted this issue in the server section. I see now that it probably should go here but didn't see a "move" option.
Unless this issue is immediately familiar to someone, my question really is how can I troubleshoot a failed installation attempt?
I built a simple file server. It was running 10.04 with Samba fine for about 6 months. It was a RAID 1 system using LVM and no encryption.
I recently discovered that one of the drives was already failing with a bunch of bad sectors. So, I decided to replace the drives and re-install everything. However, for some reason, it's not finishing the install. It gets to 94% and "Configuring language-pack-en-base" and just hangs. No drive light activity. I've waited hours and it never progresses.
Some details of the server:
Two WD 1.5 TB drives. RAID 1 Adding encryption this time. LVM Partitions: boot, root, swap
I have tried several variations. Putting the boot partition in or out of the LVM. Went back to 10.04. Even tried to re-install on the same old hard drives that I'm replacing. All of these variations result in the exact same issue.
The two differences that I can think of are adding encryption and that the motherboard firmware has been updated since the last install.
I finished installation and downloaded updates, went to the Software Center and downloaded Anki. However, when I try to download a language flash-card pack (or whatever it is) I get an error saying the "File is corrupt or not in the Anki database." It says this for any download
I am deploying ubuntu 10.10 to 40 computers in 4 schools (more to come...). The thing is that i would like to set the language of openoffice to swedish from the start. Now i have to open gnome-language-selector and download some packs and apply systemwide. How can this be done from the command-line? Or even better: during install?
I've been having a few problems with OpenOffice.Org and the language settings.
I'm using the latest Fedora 11 and OpenOffice.Org 3.1.
When trying to change the interface language from en-us to en-gb there isn't an option for en-gb at all in the drop-down, despite me reading that other people have been able to switch the interface to en-gb. This doesn't matter that much, since it's only a few words but I think it might be affecting another issue of mine.
Despite having en-gb set for my dictionary settings, I still get the Americanised words. Stuff like: internationalised vs. internationalized, colour vs. color. I've even installed the Oxford English Dictionary extension but that doesn't show up in the dictionaries.
Edit: I've tried searching the repos. for en-gb langpacks but I can only see the general 'en' English one. Yet I can see there's an en-gb lang pack on the OpenOffice.Org website [URL] but I thought you're meant to use the repos. where possible.
Edit 2: I feel a bit stupid now, it's under uk not en-gb. 'openoffice.org-langpack-uk'. Still doesn't solve my dictionary issue Americanised spellings should come up as red underlined.
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop. It's a Latitude D830. Everything's working well, which is why I decided to start customizing Ubuntu's look. My first stop was gnomelook.org and the other popular theme website for gnome(cant remember the name). Anyway, I could not find what I wanted in a theme so I turned to Ultimate Edition's website. I followed their instructions to add their repo to sources.list.
Then tried to install one of the theme packs, only to be told that 'usplash' could not be installed. So, I went ahead and googled the message and found out that 10.04 no longer uses 'usplash', it uses 'plymouth'. UE's website claims that their themes can be installed in any version of the official Ubuntu releases. All I had to do was follow their instructions to add the repo to sources.list, which I did. Can I force install a theme pack and bypass the 'usplash' error? maybe at the command line with apt?

I installed the latest one(UE 2.6 theme pack), package installer didn't complain, installation was successful, but the theme is nowhere to be found on my system. LOL I even went into Synaptic, searched for the theme, it didn't come up.
I am having a problem editing / decoding files and characters in UFT-8 on my CentOS installs. I have a single FreeBSD server where the problem does not exist. Basically, what happens is that Danish special characters, as well as other non-ASCII characters, come out garbled when processed on the system. As an example, if I open a vim editor and type characters like � it comes out as ø
If I try using nano, the characters come out as Relatedly, if I import UTF-8 encoded files from other sources, they also appear broken when edited locally. I have tried updating the system language using system-config-language. Also, I have no desktop environment installed, I access my servers only through the command line. Here's some information that may or may not be relevant, (I have googled the problem a while and have come up empty except for references to some of these things that are already set):
I have little problem with gpk servce pack (from gpk-package-extra package). When im trying to make list of my packages in system i have:
Can't write the file, no permissions. OK, but when i run gpk service package as root, program freeze, i click create packages list option but application never create this file, status is always on 0%, even after 1 hour. I saw video tutorial, where base are created by normal user i /home - why i can't Console says nothing about this.
I have some music in another language, but when I open the songs in Banshee, their song names just come up as weird characters (like μ).I went to [System --> Administration --> Language Support] and installed support for that language, but the songs still come up like μ. (But in Nautilus, their proper names show).
I know the solution is to change my whole system language to that language, but I don't want to do that, as I am not very fluent in it. Is there any way to enable support for that language while keeping English as the language used to display my desktop?
One computer .... three users .... three languages. How do you make that happen? User A speaks English and is happy with English. No problem. User B needs to use Chinese and would like the full system in Chinese. User C needs to use Thai and Chinese. They would prefer their menus to be in Thai and can use iBus for Chinese entry. How do you set up the system so that each user can select their system language when they login?
While installing Ubuntu 10.10 I chose the wrong language for my keyboard. I tried to fix this in keyboard preferences and it seemed to work. The correct one I need is USA (and don't know exactly the difference between USA and USA alternative international). But every time I boot my laptop I get the old language back (Dutch) while USA is above the others in my preferences.
i recently got a french msi wind U100x running on linux suse enterprise 10 sp1. (i am french and wanted a light netbook with french keyboard)i am totally new to linux and i believe that msi wind is not helping.because i am more used to english for settings, i set the main language to english, but it seems that it automatically reconfigures my keyboard mapping to english as well, so that azerty becomes qwerty.i reset it back to french, so now my keyboard is french, but so is the system.is there a way to differentiate keyboard from main user setting language?
How to install IO in 64-bit Ubuntu MM? There doesn't seem to be a package for it in the repos and it doesn't like compiling on a 64-bit system. I have used various internet tutorials but most don't work on AMD64.
