Re: Trelby installation issue

Your last command should have been

Code: Select all

 sudo apt-get install -f
So providing your trelby_2.2_all.deb is located in your home directory you simply copy and paste the
commands below one line at a time.

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -i trelby_2.2_all.deb
sudo apt-get install -f


Try again with that. :wink:

Re: unattended-updates needs a user friendly interface

Unattended upgrades, while possible, are risky. You should always update yourself, knowing what you're doing, so that you can act if things go wrong. Therefore it shouldn't be made easy to enable unattended upgrades. @runruckus: with your script, you bypass the entire level system of updates for Mi...
