Ubuntu :: Cannot Find Downloaded Items Using Software Center?
Aug 7, 2010
So I've downloaded a few random things using the software center but I cant seem to find them? The main one I want to access is installed but cant I find/access it. I downloaded a application finder but that hasn't helped at all? So how / where can I find them? Do I use the Terminal?
For some reason (unknown to me) my Ubuntu Software Center will no longer do installs, I keep getting a pop up window with the message: Items cannot be installed or removed until the package catalog is repaired. Do you want to repair it now?
If I click Repair and then input in my password I get a another pop-up window which says: Package operation failed The installation or removal of a software package failed.
And then the first pop-up pops up again and the whole process repeats for a while, until I hit cancel enough times that I get another pop-up window which says: The package system is broken. Check if you are using third party repositories. If so disable them, since they are a common source of problems. Furthermore run the command in a Terminal: apt-get install -f
The details say this: The following packages have unmet dependencies: jonas-5.2: Depends: java5-jdk but it is not installed Depends: upstart-job but it is a virtual package
When I run that command in a terminal I get: dlazov@ubuntu:~$ apt-get install -f E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: Permission denied) E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?
I also tried the following but not sure what exactly it means or how to fix or repair any of this: dlazov@ubuntu:~$ gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['all']" dlazov@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager [sudo] password for dlazov: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done compizconfig-settings-manager is already the newest version. You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies: jonas-5.2 : Depends: sun-java6-jdk but it is not going to be installed or java5-jdk but it is not installable E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution). dlazov@ubuntu:~$
I saw in the error log a command to type in I tried that but got this: dlazov@ubuntu:~$ dpkg-reconfigure debconf /usr/sbin/dpkg-reconfigure must be run as root dlazov@ubuntu:~$ I never created a root user during installation and I have no idea on how to login as root. ?
I was playing around with the default panel that has the power icon (wrong lingo maybe) and the network/sound icons, etc.I deleted some items including the power icon and now for the life of me can't find it in the panel applets list in lubuntu.Is there a way to restore the default panel with the settings as when I first installed lubuntu.I also played with some spacings and other settings so would rather just get it back to normal/restore it vs add all the items back on and then play with the spacings again.
I switched from 9.10 to 10.10. In 9.10 there was a folder where the temporary flv ..... video files were downloaded, so I could capture them before being deleted. Now with 10.10, which is the folder? /tmp isn't, I'm watching videos but no flashxxxxx files there.
Both are reverse of each other. Now, basically if you see, the contents are same, but in different order. Is there any easy way in which i can find out like which items dont match between 2 files, regardless of order. Lets say i add 10.1.4.1 to File1. Now the result of such comparison should be only '10.1.4.1'. Currently if i am comparing both files using diff, it gives me all the lines.
Used the ubuntu software center to download partimage-doc, then tried to find it with the search function using the word part. Three files showed up in one section but not partimage-doc. How do I find it? I want to read about the program to decide whether to download it.
I'm new to LQ and wonder what is the best way to find this post after the suggested 24 hour wait? Been using linux for most of this year and am enjoying it very much. Will dump windows completely as soon as it is possible to watch Netflix movies and read Barnes an Nobel books with linux.
I've got something or someone downloading from me, probably scraping, and i can't figure out WHAT is using all of my bandwidth, and WHERE it's coming from.I don't know what SERVICE its from (eg, is this an apache request, or DNS DOS), what FILES are being accessed (if any, eg apache requests/scrape), and what IP is requesting them.My apache logs isn't showing anything that makes me thing i'm being scrapped. I'm kinda stuck in a brain fart right now and can't remember how to track this down, but the long and short is that all of my band width is being consumed, and 1 of my CPU cores is staying maxed out ("top" says that it's the avahi service).I've shut off the following services 1 by 1 to see if any of them would cause a drop in network usage, and none of them did:
I've just got this PC with originally SLED SP1 installed. After hours, it seems that it has updated to SP2, but I'm still lost! I can't open help files, and I can't find out how to install downloaded programmes. For example, I would prefer to use Google Chrome as browser, and I can download Chrome for Linux, it shows up on the desktop, but that's it!I have no idea how to install it - it doesn't show up on "new installation.
Very recently, I installed 10.04 on a laptop with the 'Try it' option. After installation, I installed Skype - I'm not sure if it was from the Software Center or via apt-get. Today, I installed 10.04 as a full installation on my desktop. The laptop shows Skype in the software center, and apt-cache search skype shows "skype - VOIP and instant messaging client", but the desktop doesn't show it anywhere.
I just burned a live CD from SimplyMepis-CD_8.0.12-rel_32.iso. All went well, but I can't find the installation center so that I can fully install it om my computer. I can login with demo or root, but I don't know where or how to set up my machine.
I recently managed to install it on a PC alongside Windows XP (seperate hard disk's). Anyways I downloaded AVG 8.5.732 (avg85flx-r732-a3168.i386.deb) and installed the package (Synaptic Package Manager lists it as being installed) but I can't find in the Ubuntu Software Centre nor can I find it in the system/main menu list.
after the netinst finished to download the last package, one hour later the process never continues, I checked the log file and I didn't find anything suspecious, also dmesg and nothing, in fact, in the log file before checked I found that the last line was registered just a minute ago - DHCP renew IP-, so my questions are:
1. all the packages downloaded are gone?, can I restart the installation using all those packages downloaded?
2. where I can find the error or problem that cause that the installation was freezed?
3. in the case that installation needs to start from the beginning, can I use the package downloaded?
I recently had an issue with the Network Manager Applet 0.8, and Indicator Applet 0.3.7 (applets were locked to panel and disappeared for no obvious reason could not get them back using add to panel or looking in applications, places, or system). I removed said applets using Ubuntu Software Center and reinstalled. Where do I find the reinstalled software (applets) so I can add it back to panel?
I am getting some error when i compile cross compile "dbus-1.2.20". error Code: checking for XML_ParserCreate_MM in -lexpat... no configure: error: Could not find expat.h, check config.log for failed attempts so i downloaded te expat library sources i cross compiled. But again i am getting same error. I think i have to add "-lexpat" in LDFLAG. But i dont know how to do that.
One problem is that whenever i try to install software from a deb file or try to find software in the ubuntu software center, installing from a seperate file just opens up U.S.C and when i try to find software from the software center it just sits there and searches.My other problem is that when i try to edit files in my etc or just in my main file system im only aloud to read, not edit, and i cant change the file permissions, but im the only user, and i have admin rights, why cant i edit files.
I have asked this question several times but I think that I am not asking it correctly. I have umbutu 9.04 and Windows 7.0 on my C: drive. When I start my machine I have approximately 9 or 10 items on my boot list and I would like to have 2.It has been suggested that I determine what version of grub I am using and I am using /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.28-19 generic. I have no idea what that means.It has been suggested that I install some various items of software and I am sure that it would solve my problem but to me it would be like looking down a cows throat. Please, don't get me wrong, I really appreciate the input but its like when you go to the doctor you kind of wonder "just what the heck is he talking about". Maybe someone could just tell me how to accomplish what I want to do so I can understand!My daughter uses this machine and she goes to places that I didn't know I had.
