Ubuntu :: Can't Install Packages On 10.04 - Error Action Requires Installation Of Untrusted Packages

Apr 30, 2010

Whenever I do sudo apt-get or use the Ubuntu Software Center, I can't download anything because a message comes up saying "Action requires installation of untrusted packages: The action would require the installation of packages from not authenticated sources." I've been trying to download GIMP and Thunderbird, so... I dunno what the problem is.

Ubuntu Installation :: Trying To Install Netbook From USB - Failing

Oct 18, 2010

I have an Asus Eee running the factory installation of Linux. Xandros, I think. Whatever it is, it's not letting me update Firefox, so I'm trying to replace it with Ubuntu Netbook. I made a bootable USB stick according to the instructions at [url], and I know the problem isn't with the USB because the Windows machine I'm currently on wants to know if I want to try out Ubuntu or install Ubuntu or learn more, but when I put the stick in the netbook, nothing happens, and when I reboot with the stick in the netbook, nothing happens. The netbook's set to boot from a USB if there's one present; I checked. Is the problem that the stick's only supposed to work on Windows?

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Failing Completely On New Karmic Install?

Feb 19, 2010

I just installed Karmic Koala on one of my hard harddrive. The other disk has Windows XP. Previously I had a working dual-boot setup, but after problems with Ubuntu I reinstalled it. On booting, I get the following:

Grub Loading stage1.5
Grub loading, please wait...
Error 2

There is no Grub menu which might allow me to drop to a Grub prompt and evaluate. This occurs whether I boot with the Ubuntu harddrive or re-set the BIOS to boot with the Windows harddrive. If I boot with a LiveCD, I see that both my Ubuntu and Windows harddrives exist and are readable; the Ubuntu was indeed wiped clean and reinstalled; the issue is with the boot process. How can I set this up to boot?

Ubuntu Installation :: Nvidia Still Failing - Pre-install Script Says 'exit'?

Nov 20, 2010

It's been quite a run-around trying to get the Nvidia driver working.I have already followed a lot of instructions, at least onceI still get caught at "the pre-install script failed". When I looked at the script itself, it says it's "triggering an error status to prevent the installer from overwriting ubuntu's nvdia packages."Some say this script can be ignored, but it seems to be the only thing keeping my install from working.Some say install from root prompt, some say GUI OK. Some say d/l from NVIDIA, some from repository. I have been doing root, init 3, removing old drivers, etc..

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Latest Qbittorrent, Failing Miserably?

Aug 11, 2011

I really like qBittorrent.I would really love it if it worked in the unity desktop.There's a few issues with this--

1. No icon in system tray.

2. No access to latest version in software center.

I've looked around in the forums and tried to "whitelist" all apps--I don't know what that means and don't personally understand why ALL apps weren't whitelisted in the first place.That was unsuccessful.

Debian Installation :: Netinst Install Failing To Connect To Mirror

Jun 2, 2010

I am trying to install debian from a netinst cd. Everything seems to go fine except when the installer needs to connect to a mirror. It doesn't throw up an error, it just hangs a bit and then seems to keep going a lot quicker than i would expect. For example, when installing additional software, it gets stuck downloading the first few files for about 5 mins and then skips ahead and finishes the entire process in about 5 mins.

What I end up with is a very bare bones system when I fist boot into it, without any of the stuff that I had indicated that I wanted to install (ie desktop environment, web server, etc). The Internet connection works and I am able to ping websites including a number of the mirrors I tried during the install. However when using apt-get it just gets stuck trying to connect to the mirror and doesn't go any further.

Ubuntu Networking :: LinuxWiMAX - Firmware Installation - Modem Works Fine But Failing To Install Drivers

May 17, 2011

I switched from windows to Ubuntu 10.10. But I'm not getting along with it as well as I expected I would Specially cause I'm not getting the best out of it due to limited web connectivity. I used to use a usb WiMax modem back in windows (which is also supposed to be supported by linux as my service provider said) for internet. But I'm having a hard time configuring it on my Ubuntu. The modem works fine but I'm failing to install the drivers [url]. I used my cell as a temporary modem to get help from the web.

I downloaded:-
i2400m firmware 1.5.0
WiMAX Tools 1.4.5
WiMAX Network Service 1.5.2

According to the documentation, I'm supposed to install the linux kernel 2.6.35 which Maverick comes with anyway.

Then comes the part to install the firmware. The command I used was


But unfortunately and annoyingly the result is


I didn't get it. Am I missing any package or something?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Install Packages Using Apt-get

May 24, 2010

I tried to install some packages using "apt-get" but every time I try to install one it throws "Aborted" message, I tried several packages and combination allways with the same result.

But If I install them with Synaptics I can do it without any problem, as I know Synaptics uses apt-get to install packages so all this is a bit confusing to me .

apt-get version:

Ubuntu Installation :: Which Packages To Install

Sep 29, 2010

I did a succesfull Alternative Installation of 10.04 yesterday and managed to load the packages that allowed me to install NetGear NG511v2 drivers. So far so good.

When I plug in a usb flashdrive it only mounts during boot-up. I know I can load a package that allows me to select ' hot mount usb drive' (or similar check box). How do I find what packages to install to give me this functionality?

Similarly my accessories tab shows Bluetooth as being available. There is no bluetooth on the laptop so how do I find out what packages I can safely remove?

The wider question is, is there a list of packages with their associated functions and associations?

I've already had a look at the lists of installed packages and available packages on my CD, but I have no idea what they do.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Install Packages Via The Terminal?

Feb 12, 2010

ASUS Laptop X71SL series
GeForce 9300M GS 512 MB
Ubuntu Karmic

I can't install packages via the terminal. For example: sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

Doesnt work. It gives me:
Lser paketlistor... Frdig
Bygger beroendetrd
Lser tillstndsinformation... Frdig
E: Kunde inte hitta paketet compizconfig-settings-manager

Swedish there hehe, but basically it says the it couldnt find the the package named "compizconfig-sett.This problems occurs in several situations. Every single package i try except "upgrade" fails to find a package.

Also, the package manager "Ubuntu Software Manager" and Synaptic arent giving me any solutions. Same problems. Packages arent available and such. I have a working internet connection and the GPU drivers are installed. Everything is updated. sudo apt-get install update/upgrade is done and also done in the general update manager.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Packages With No Internet / Is It Possible?

Mar 27, 2010

I have a general question: can I install packages in my Ubuntu, just using the live-CD but no network connection?

I broke my Ubuntu(9.10) and now can not log in, so I want to reinstall gnome, unfortunately I could not connect to internet, so I wonder if there is a way to use the live-CD as a source for the new software.

I would be really happy if I don't have to preinstall the whole system.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Install Packages In Maverick (10.10)?

Feb 4, 2011

I decided to give a new download of Ubuntu 10.10 a chance. It went on fine,I even installed VirtualBox with noi problem, But I am light on assessories,particularly gimp. I tried the Ubuntu Software Center, then I tried the Synaptic Package Manager for this and other packages, and guess what? I kept getting errors like this:dpkg: failed to read on buffer copy for copy info file `/var/lib/dpkg/available': Input/output error
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)I even found a link that showed how to include gimp on 10.04 or 10.10 with a few command line statement, and I thought that would fly, but I got the same error again. Another problem is that my monitor keeps fading to a sort of blue-gray color indicating the processor is having trouble keeping up, but I have only FireFox running, and the keyboard locks up after after just a a smaill handful of charactrers are typed, then after about 10 seconds or so, the keyboard buffer flushes to the screen.

This certainly is not typical of earlier Ubuntu versions, and I wonder if anybody else has similar problems or knows the cause and cure.I am down to the point of asking myself, what is so urgent with the Ubuntu developers that we are having more and more conflicts between hardware and software to resolve with each new release? And that they are pulling more and more packages out of the LiveCD in order to make room for something that is bulking up in some other manner? What are you people up to, make Ubuntu more like Windows with coming releases? If I wanted Windows, I would stick with or get a newer version of Windows.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 - Command Line (No Packages To Install)

May 6, 2010

Just installed Lucid from CD ROM. I have 2 HDDs. When the install screen came to ask about partitions, it didn't seem to want me to install it onto the same HDD as my XP/Ubuntu 9.10 partitions, so I installed it onto my other HDD. After it finished, I restarted and it appeared on GRUB. It takes me to a command line where it asks me for my desktop login and then my password.

It allows me to type in my login, but the password isn't so easy. It won't let me type it in. It's as if the keyboard stops working apart from the return key. I have no understanding of command line. As soon as I'd entered my password, it went on to tell me that there were no packages to install, and then stayed on command line as if I'd just opened a terminal. How would I get it to take me to my desktop?

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Local Packages Using Synaptic?

I wonder if i can install packages that already exist in local directory using synaptic for example: I downloaded a set of programs with there dependencies and stored them in whatever folder, and i'd reinstalled my distro and i need to install just google chrome browser for instance, it's will be very difficult to install it among other packages. it will be very useful if i forced synaptic to install chrome locally instead of downloading and installing them from the internet.
