General :: Can't Install .Deb File Or (package) / Dpkg: Command Not Found?

Jan 3, 2010

I'm using a new Distro and after installing it and randomly searching for help on websites on how to install a .Deb file using dpkg at the konsole/terminal it says Bash : dpkg: Command not found . how is this possible ? Do I have to know about all the packages in the package manager to install this. slight difference for me ... knowing what I have and knowing if I need Apr93-323? (whatever) installed first or not ? The only thing I know is that I have the Iso image installed ... which is my linux distro . Where to go from here? because I usually go to a website site to find Software to install ...if I need it .back to the basics

Ubuntu Installation :: E:Unable To Parse Package File /var/lib/dpkg/status (1)

Mar 31, 2010

I'm running ubuntu 9.04 and was happy because I finally got the screen resolution to be a good size, but now I can't update anything or even upgrade ubuntu.The message I get is


Could Not Initialize Package Information

An unresolvable problem occured while initializing the package information.Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:

'E:Unable to parse package file /var/lib/dpkg/status (1), E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.'

I've also had issues with installing new programs (specifically tried Boxee (64bit ver) and Scrobbler), but was thinking these issues might be related to the updage-manager error.

General :: Error Running A .sh Script When Extracted From A Jar File - Command Not Found

Jan 4, 2010

I am trying to run a script called as follows: I get a jar file, and extract it using the command: unzip filename.jar -D path/to/files then I navigate to that directory where I extracted the files, and run the command: sh (where is one of the files that has been extracted in that directory using the above unzip command.) running this command gives me an error:' command not found.' among other errors in the script ( from that portion of the script that should not even be executed, which is really weird). However, instead of unzipping the jar file, if I just copied the same file to that folder, and ran the 'sh' command, the script runs fine.

Fedora :: PHP PECL Package - Gmagick Config File Not Found

Dec 29, 2009

I've been trying to install the gmagick extension for days now without success. I always end up with the same error message:

checking GraphicsMagick configuration program... configure: error: not found. Please provide a path to GraphicsMagick-config program.
ERROR: '/tmp/pear/temp/gmagick/configure --with-gmagick' failed

It's no wonder why I get this message as the location simply does not exists, its being unpacked to 'gmagick-1.0.3b2' and not 'gmagick'. I've tried to copy/paste the configuration file (config.m4?) to my manually created 'gmagick' directory within the temp folder but that didn't solve anything.

Command when installing:
pecl install gmagick-1.0.3b2
I'm running Fedora 12.

General :: Patch In .sh File - Error "patching: Command Not Found"

Mar 1, 2011

I have a script: `cd $FILEPATH && patch -i $TMPFILEA2$FILETMPPATH` Variable $FILESPATH is = /tmp/ardiff.AvUUGfOKa2/a/hello/ and Variable $TMPFILEA2$FILETMPPATH is = /tmp/ardiff.AvUUGfOKa2/b/hello/hello.c.patch. I don't know, why is it no working from script file, it write me message to terminal: ./ line 242: patching: command not found.

But I have no PATCHING command there!!!! The paradox is, when I want to patch it from terminal (I write it to terminal by keyboard, it works).

Ubuntu Installation :: Apt-Get Install / Package Not Found

Sep 1, 2011

Ubuntu Server Edition, 32bit, fresh install today (2011.07.07). Usually the first thing thing I do after a server install, I update, upgrade... then install Emacs to configure services. I can get to it from my other servers and PC's, have an internet connections from that server // so I know things should be okay...

I'm thinking maybe it's a repo problem in my source list... and I'm not sure what repo Emacs is from. I'd like to check this, before doing a reinstall on this. I had just added in the mounts & fstabs on my data RAID arays... Would be more work, but still not too far into it.
