How do you install other apps ? This is a distro based on Debian
I open up the terminal and type for example sudo apt-get install openoffice
Then this appears
Any ideas ? I also tried to download the installer OOo_3.3.0_Linux_x86-64_install-deb_en-US.tar.gz , opened it up with Synaptics Package Manager but nothing happensQuote:
sudo: unable to resolve host (none)
[sudo] password for ps3: ps3
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
N: Ignoring file 'local-packages.list.save' in directory '/etc/apt/sources.list.d/' as it has an invalid filename extension
E: Unable to locate package openoffice
You can fix this problem by executing the online update:
Thanks , i did the update and managed to install Open Office and VLC ( why does it not get image , only sound ? )
Some programs are having errors though ,for example Pidgin , when i try to install it i gen an error..could not install libpurple0 , then i install that i get an error of can't install another one that's related..and so on . I also tried Pidgin.deb and installing with Gdebi , same errors
Another issue , the keyboard , i selected US type keyboard at installation but now the special symbols like ?-/ are all chaotically placed , totally not like a standard keyboard we're all used to. Can we change that ?
Are the any limitations of me not being able to become root ? I tried the password ps3 but it's incorrect . Is there another one ? Are we allowed to know it ?
You can install pidgin by executing:
sudo aptitude install pidgin
It will ask you:
The following actions will resolve these dependencies:
Keep the following packages at their current version:
1) libperl5.10 [Not Installed]
2) libpurple-bin [Not Installed]
3) libpurple0 [Not Installed]
4) pidgin [Not Installed]
Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?]
You must answer N and It will ask:
Install the following packages:
1) libperl5.10 [5.10.1-17squeeze1 (stable)]
Then you answer Y.
You can change keyboard layout executing:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-data
And you can change root password executing:
sudo passwd root
I have my ps3 connected by hdmi on at 26"(?) with 1080p output, and my letters are very distorted in red ribbon. Is there a way to change this or should I use my original av cables?
