Re: Remove all python and kill linux

Why don't you just download the deb for python2.7 and install that? https://packages.ubuntu.com/bionic/python

Re: Remove all python and kill linux

I'm glad you're going to be able to save your data. However, I don't see this as a developer issue, although I agree that some safeguards are necessary. UNIX/Linux give users the ability to do anything to their system, include completely hosing it (sudo rm -rf /, anyone? :D ). Maybe there's a bug in...

Re: Remove all python and kill linux

What I am trying to say you need to fix the distro so people can reinstall python if they accidently remove it !!!! You did not remove it accidentally. You did it on purpose, because you did not realise how much depends on it. That's on you. Should tool manufacturers be required to fix their produc...

Re: Installing a tar.gz file

Could be a whole bunch of things - prerequisite libraries not installed, missing build tools, version mismatch on libraries. Can you post the terminal output of your latest attempt (place between <code> tags; see the "</>" above). Also need your Mint version and what software you're trying to build.

Re: Android Emulators

I keep waiting for Anbox to mature, but its development seems stuck. I still haven't been able to run any apps with it.

Re: Installing GIMP plugins from .tar.gz file?

Hi ajgringo619, trytip, OldCorpsSgt, & Everyone else, 1.) If you read my reply and the link to a previous post in that, you would have seen the instructions for manually adding the "resynthesizer" plugin to Gimp versions 2.10.xx or 2.9.xx which included a link to download the already compiled progr...

That's a good plot twist :lol: It does work with 2.10!
I downloaded the latest source as well (no idea what version was in the .zip file and I couldn't find it from within Gimp), but I need to read up on how to compile it when the libraries aren't where its expected.

Re: Installing GIMP plugins from .tar.gz file?

I was searching for this as well and found this link: https://www.gimp-forum.net/Thread-Gimp-2-10-Resynthesizer-Linux I downloaded the .zip file and unzipped it to ~/.var/app/org.gimp.GIMP/config/GIMP/2.10/plug-ins (this is where user plug-ins are placed for Flatpak installations). So far, so good...

Re: Virtualbox error rc=-1904

OK, let's try this again (you did remove your current VirtualBox installation, correct?): sudo chmod 666 /etc/apt/sources.list echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian bionic contrib" >> /etc/apt/sources.list sudo chmod 644 /etc/apt/sources.list sudo apt-get update su...

Sorry about that; just add everything in quotes to the /etc/apt/sources.list file using your favorite text editor (as root, of course).

Re: Virtualbox error rc=-1904

I would definitely remove your current VB install first. The below instructions come directly from the link I gave you earlier: sudo echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian bionic contrib" >> /etc/apt/sources.list wget -q https://www.virtualbox.org/download/oracle_vb...

Hmmm...the error message suggests reinstalling the virtualbox-dkms package. Try that and see if it makes any difference. If not, I would suggest installing the latest VB packages from https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads. I went through the process of adding VB to my sources so it would u...

Did you get any errors during the installation? It looks like the kernel modules failed to build; can you post your /var/log/vbox-install.log file?

You could try Snap's version of Falkon (currently 3.0.1).

EDIT: what about the one in the Software Manager?
