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'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 will try to keep this straight-forward. Yesterday I was able to access an ubuntu 10.10 (edubuntu) desktop using the tightVNC viewer that I installed on my Vista laptop. I never set anything up on the desktop it just worked and I didn't question it.
Today I get the following error on the viewer software: "Server did not offer supported security type" The only thing that has changed was that I installed a bunch of updates yesterday afternoon, but I am not sure what changed.
Every shortcut... every program... every link... everything opens in Archive Manager. And then it reports that the archive is not supported... I gotta launch everything directory related through a terminal just to get to navigate through a window manager.

I'm trying to extract an RAR file which has my stuff on it from university, they use Windows Vista Ultimate so i thought i would be safe when saving my work to my flash drive. So i saved my work with the program winzip. when i got home i put in my flash drive and asked Kubuntu to extract only to find i don't have a RAR program to extract so i asked to install one via the Kpackage Manager and everything seemed fine so i asked it to extract again and said cannot extract unknown file. so i went through the terminal to install again and to make sure they were no bits of the install missing and i got this.
Is there any other way of extracting my work as i need to get my essay open and finnish it before monday. Also why is it saying that the package is missing? and what is the other source? Is there a way to decrypt this RAR file that vista has made? Also one more thing once ive managed to decrypt and extract my work what is the reccomended format to between vista and kubuntu so i wont get anymore issues?

When I try to open the trash can in nautilus I get this message: "Sorry, could not display all the contents of "trash": Operation not supported". Also when I click on the computer icon on dock nothing happens. When I plug my ipod in, it mounts but it doesn't appear in rhythmbox.
I'd like to ask about archive mounter feature, can I mount zip file with read write mode? can gvfsd-archive do that?, or I must use fuse-zip to mount it? If I must use fuse-zip, how I wrap it so I can use it via nautilus or via gvfs-fuse-daemon

I am trying to Install Open Suse 11.3 (burned as an ISO DVD) along with existing Win 2008 R2 OS. When I try to boot from the DVD it just logs in to Win2008 though boot from CD/DVD is enabled in the boot sequence. So i tried to mount the ISO and run from Windows ! BUT I get an error before installation starts telling that Win2008 R2 is not supported in open suse installer! Is there anything I can do to overcome this and install/retain both OS? In fact I am even trying to c hange my win2008 from R2 to Enterprise to see if I can overcome the problem!
I've downloaded some torrents, and someone CONVENIENTLY made them a multiple file archive instead of a single file.
I've tried unrar -x <filename>-part1.rar, which it says it completes, then I don't see the file. What do I need to do? WinRAR usually decompresses them just fine, but on Linux is where I have the problem.
More importantly, why on Earth would anybody do this?
I have a RAR archive, split into 40 sections, containing a folder with a total of 2GB of data. When I Open the Archive using "File Roller 126.96.36.199" and drag the archived folder to destination folder, it says that its uncompressing, but after its uncompressed, there is nothing there, in the destination folder. Where was the 2GB extracted stuff gone?
