Re: Apt error

Right, there was no error message.

The error message only comes up after I run the UM from the menu, I'll run the UM twice on the next two updates to test your questions and then I'll respond back.

Thanks again

Re: Testing advice

Thanks for the information,

I'll probably stay in testing, especially after hearing that ffmpeg is coming back.

Basically I'm just tired of updates all the time, but I'll just have to put up with it.

Testing advice

Is it possible to switch back to stable after installing solydX EE by changing the sources list?

I only installed testing because stable didn't have the updated programs I wanted, now I want to switch back to stable.

I'm not worried about updates to the programs I need.

Thanks

Re: Apt error

Thanks,

I just used the UM and the error was still there but I didn't reboot after performing:

Code: Select all

sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/lock
sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/lock
sudo rm /var/cache/apt/archives/lock
sudo apt-get -f install
So I'll reboot and wait for the next update.

I changed my password about a month or so ago.

I have looked into the root password issue on my computer but from what I can tell I can't change it.

Re: Root Terminal question

@troypulk, If you enter the command in a terminal, does it produce any errors? The window just says incorrect password and try again. Mine is: ls -l gks* -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 28080 Dec 5 2014 gksu lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 Dec 5 2014 gksudo -> gksu -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 12200 Sep 6 2014 gksu-prop...

I may have broke something with out realizing it? gksu does not work even though I set xhost to Exec=xhost + I've never used gksu before so I have never noticed it except in the past clicking on root terminal in the system menu it wouldn't work so I would just open the root terminal with sudo like I...

Re: Root Terminal question

AIUI, starting any GUI application (such as Thunar) with sudo can cause problems with file ownership and permissions. For this reason, it is recommended to use the gksudo (or kdesudo) prefix, rather than sudo, to open a GUI application as root. So you're saying that the system will automatically ch...

Re: xiphos broken

@lilgman

In the mean time you could substitute Xiphos with Bibletime which works good but is not up to date to the latest version but will work in a pinch, it uses the same bible modules as well.

Re: Phinx Desktop

Thanks for the info,

Yes, I am aware of his issues for closing down Phinx and I'm wondering if he will ever resurrect Phinx.

Thats why I asked if anyone here has heard of a Distro like this one before.
