Re: tomcat8 not installed, but software updater wants to install it

Although update-manager labelled the update as 'tomcat8', the package that was updated was in fact ' libservlet3.1-java', version 8.0.32-1ubuntu1.5 . At least that's the package that was updated on my LM machines ... Package: libservlet3.1-java State: installed Automatically installed: no Version: 8...

Re: Kernel updates

And one more question: I can see a package in synaptic called linux-libc-dev. Its version is 4.4.0-77.98 and there's a 4.4.0-79.100 update. Shouldn't that be version 4.10.0-22, which is my updated kernel? Isn't that package updated along with the kernel? Is it safe to remove it? (I guess not? :shoc...

Re: Hotsync a Palm E2 to Cinnamon 17.3?

.... So the 'visor' module is NOT NEEDED for your Palm E2 to 'Sync' thus there is no need for you to mess with that in the future. And in the 'usb:' config in 'jpilot' it will not matter which 'Sync', 'jpilot' icon or device, you start first. Either way, the 'Sync' should work. . I had tried 'usb:'...

You might also want to check out 'remmina', too. It's does RDP, VNC, and more.

Re: sudo apt-get update "fail"

You are not alone. I'm seeing similar failures as well. Changing mirror config in 'Software Sources' do not seem to help, for me at least. I think this started happening in the last 12 hours or so?
