Ubuntu Installation :: Package Downloaded & Installed Via Synaptic - How To Start

Apr 30, 2010

Interested in trialing Varkon and used Synaptic Package Manager to download and install. According to the [url]...nstalling.html it should be there under 'Applications'. I've looked through them all and no sign of Varkon. I've also tried to see if Varkon was installed so I looked via Ubuntu Software Center under installed software. No sign. Did a file search for Varkon.

Debian Installation :: All Packages Downloaded Gone - Use Package Downloaded?

Mar 1, 2010

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 get the same output for sudo apt-get update & sudo apt-get upgrade.

This is what I get when trying to start synaptic:
E: Type 'ain' is not known on line 3 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/am-monkeyd-nautilus-elementary-ppa-natty.list
E: The list of sources could not be read.
Go to the repository dialog to correct the problem.

Ubuntu Installation :: Where Downloaded OpenOffice Associated Package Saved

Jan 23, 2011

I am a newbie to Ubuntu. I have installed Ubuntu STudio 10.04 Lucid, and to install Open Office, I have chosen the below method:

1. Went to System-->Administration-->Synaptic Package manager.
2. Here, I chose Open Office Package and marked something, which I now dont remember.
3. Download of the associated packages have been completed, but it is not installed. Around 99 mb is downloaded, but I am not sure where it is saved.

The problem is that, it is not yet installed. After the download, it behaved like it was installing, I waited, but of no use. How to install the same and where the downloaded packages sit in the system?

Ubuntu Installation :: Synaptic Package Upgrade ?

Feb 23, 2010

I am trying to get Ubuntu up and running on my Dell XPS 400 desktop. I verified the checksum of the iso (ubuntu-9.10-desktop-i386.iso) I downloaded, and I ran the cd check before installing. I also ran a memtest for 16 hours with no errors.

So I install Ubuntu, and everything seems ok. Now, I try to update my software packages, and the upgrade always fails after all the packages are downloaded (sometime during actual installation). So, I have to reboot, and the file system will not mount. I run fsck and reboot, and now I cannot even boot normally or to a shell... This has happened to me twice in row.

What is the best plan of attack when a package fails to install midway? I want to use Ubuntu, but this is making it pretty hard.

Ubuntu Installation :: Synaptic Package Tab Greyed Out

Jun 24, 2011

ubuntu 11.04,Windows 7 dual boot. Almost total linux / ubuntu novice.I just installed ubuntu 11.04 this afternoon. The installation went smoothly but I did not get wireless internet connection. In the top panel : Network device not working (firmware missing)Some hunting indicated that one needed to remove some files and install some others using synaptic. Found synaptic, loaded it by clicking and found the file to install. However the Package Tab was completely greyed out. Any suggestions where I am going wrong?

BTW the 11.04 is different enough that I have not yet even found the terminal so any suggestions re it, please include a suggestion on how to find it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Connect To Synaptic Package Manager?

Jan 1, 2010

Have a new Dell Vostro A90 that came with 8.04 and I have installed 9.10 from a CD that was mailed to me. I can connect to the internet with a wired connection, but I cannot connect wirelessly. When I've tried to install the broadcom driver by going to Synaptic Package Manager and hitting reload, I get a message that 1 of 15 packages is downloading, but nothing downloads and I get a failed message for each of the jobs. Any clues as to how to proceed from here? I am very new to Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Installation :: Stuff Installed In Synaptic

Jul 2, 2011

I'm getting ready to back up all my data and reinstall Ubuntu from scratch, to clear up some various issues. It sure would be helpful if I could see a quick list in Synaptic or the Ubuntu Software Center of all the things I've installed myself.That would help with this whole process.

Debian :: Installed Scim With The Package Manager, But Cannot Start It?

May 8, 2011

I have just switched from Ubuntu to Debian, so on the whole I can easily figure out how to use Debian. Scim however, is giving me a problem. I have installed scim with the package manager, but cannot start it.With Ubuntu is was ctrl+space bar, but so far I have not found any key combinations that work. In the preferences menu there is an entry for scim set-up, but it is only an information page.AlthoughI have been using Linux for a few years, I am not much of a terminal user, so I have not even thought of going that route for fear of wrecking my new system.Considering how easy it was to use scim on Ubuntu, which is a Debian derivative, it should not be difficult to get it working. (I am not a computer wizard. In fact, before switching to Linux I hated the machines.

Ubuntu Installation :: Software Sources And Synaptic Package Manager Won't Run

Oct 1, 2010

Whenever I try to run the Software Sources and Synaptic Package Manager applications, 'Starting Administrative Application' appears briefly on the taskbar - and then disappears! And nothing starts.I tried uninstalling and reinstalling them in case they were corrupt, but the same thing still happens.These two seem to be the only applications that behave this way, so can anyone think of anything that links the two of them and may cause this?

Ubuntu Installation :: Skip Specific Upgrade In Synaptic Package Manager?

Dec 19, 2010

All of a sudden when I ran an update with the usual
sudo apt-get upgrade
I got an input / output error for a specific file followed by an exit with dpkg returning error code 1.

In this case the package (ubuntu-docs) is not exactly life threatening, so I would prefer any update process to simply skip that particular package and move onto the ones that are getting held up. I then opened Synaptic Package Manager where I located the erroneous package. I then unmarked the particular package (ie the blob in front of the package name was green, and the status line shows zeroes for all categories (broken, upgrade/install, remove). So far so good. I then found the 'lock version' menu item under the packages menu. I clicked it, and ran the reload thing. After that thought the package was marked for deletion however, and I once again couldn't get by this one bad package.

So (tl/dr perhaps), how can I make Synaptic / apt-get / or whatever to skip this bad package for real so that I can update my system normally going forward? (Why is it that the whole upgrade process is that fragile by the way? Surely there must the the occasional dud package upgrade that people want to skip, no? Having the whole process grind to a halt because of one issue seems border line paranoid to me. Of course on a minimal server installation where every package counts this behavior makes sense perhaps, but on a IMHO bloated plain vanilla ubuntu install?

Ubuntu Installation :: Gnuplot And Synaptic Manager Fails Package On Already Unsupported

Apr 4, 2011

we need to install gnuplot and synaptic manager fails because Intrepid is unsupported. I know we can update to a newer version but we cannot do it now (we'll do it during summer holidays). What's the best way of installing gnuplot (or some other aplication) on our systems? Should we download from sources and compile? Could we add some special source to our list and download from there?
