Re: Installing from source and making it like it was from a package?

I understand, so I guess without the prefix argument it'll store the installed files in the usual place i.e. "/usr/bin" and "/usr/share" etc. I'll give this a try.

Thanks xenopeek and gm10.

Installing from source and making it like it was from a package?

Say if you follow the "configure, make, make install" process and install a piece of software in a directory (using "--prefix=/pathto/yourdir/"), then how can you make it like it was installed from a package i.e. probably put it or a shortcut in "/usr/bin"? Is it possible to signal to the package ma...

Re: Valgrind crashes in Qt Creator, related to the video card?

Thanks Rob. I read on the documentation that Valgrind is separate from Qt, so I installed the latest version of Valgrind from source and the problem went away.

Valgrind crashes in Qt Creator, related to the video card?

Hi, "Valgrind Memory Analyzer" crashes when running a blank "Qt Widgets Application" project in Qt Creator 4.10.1 with the "external error" message: 286,959 bytes in 1 blocks are possibly lost in loss record 78 of 78 in calloc in /usr/lib/valgrind/vgpreload_memcheck-amd64-linux.so 1: calloc in /usr/...

Re: Change log of the minor system / kernel updates?

Got it, thanks! Yeah I'm on 18.3. It has "change log" links under "Linux kernels" in the update manager.

Re: Change log of the minor system / kernel updates?

Sorry, my question was a bit vague. What I am really looking for is a textual description of what changed in the update. The update manager "history of updates" just lists out the package names.

Where can I see old notifications?

Sometimes these pop up and then quickly disappear before I get a chance to click on them. Or is there a way to increase the time that they are in the tray (bottom right)... like to a few hours, in case you're away from your computer? I just found the "remove notifications after their timeout is reac...

Output raw sound data from C++

How do I output raw sound data from C++ i.e. send integers (representing the speaker position) to the sound buffer? And what libraries do I need to install / link to?

I'm using either Qt or Code::Blocks. I've looked for ways to use Jack with Qt but I can't get it ("jack") working:

Re: Creating a package with an icon / Software Manager

1) For 1 at a guess you could try installing the icon into the hicolor theme (it's the ultimate backstop for all correctly configured icon themes) - usr/share/icons/hicolor/ 2) It will be listed in synaptic as a foreign package for uninstall, or can be uninstalled with apt / apt-get.
