Re: Mint 19 Cinnamon unable to install gcc-8

Installed from the package gcc-8 in the Ubuntu 18.04 repository, /usr/bin/gcc-8 is a symoblic link to /usr/bin/x86_64-linux-gnu-gcc-8.

I can only guess it's still installed from somewhere else. What does this show:
apt policy gcc-8

Re: Mint 19 Cinnamon unable to install gcc-8

Does it show in this list:
ls -l /usr/bin/gcc*

What about in this output:
dpkg -S gcc-8

Or:
dpkg -L gcc-8 | grep /usr/bin

Re: New Dropbox System Requirements

They don't make money from most linux users. Do don't make money from most users, regardless of what OS they use. I think you meant something else :) A rough estimate—based on their $ 1.1 billion revenue for 2017, 500+ million users and price per month per user between $ 9.99 and $ 19.99—is that th...

Re: New Dropbox System Requirements

As currently known, Dropbox won't work on encrypted Linux filesystems. So if you've really tied yourself to Dropbox, you'll have to reinstall anyway.

Re: Mint 19 Cinnamon unable to install gcc-8

I missed you can also remove these Python 3.5 and Ruby 2.3 library packages: apt purge libpython3.5 libpython3.5-dev libpython3.5-minimal libpython3.5-stdlib libruby2.3 For the rest, we have to split up gcc-7 related packages from gcc-8 related packages as these have a different base version. I hope...

Re: Mint 19 Cinnamon unable to install gcc-8

Another thing to figure out is if you still need the Python and Vim packages that are also from the wrong repository. Perhaps these are the ones that pulled in the other packages. What does this say: python3 --version If it is, as it should be, Python 3.6.x then you can go ahead and remove the Pytho...

Re: Mint 19 Cinnamon unable to install gcc-8

We just want to forget about the currently installed packages version—since there is no repository configured from which that version can be installed—and instead just install the version available from the configured repositories. It sounds trivial but I can't recall if/how to do this :( Unless som...

Re: Mint 19 Cinnamon unable to install gcc-8

First do: apt update Then try if you can get all these packages reinstalled from the Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic) repository (they are currently installed from a repository intended for Ubuntu 16.04 that is no longer configured on your system): sudo apt-get install -t bionic cpp-8 gcc-8-base gcc-8-base:i38...

Re: Mint 19 Cinnamon unable to install gcc-8

For a first, I'd suggest to disable the update-toolchain-r/test PPA for now. You can do that in Software Sources. Next I think we'll have to find all packages originally installed from 16.04 repository and force reinstall them all from 18.04 repository. That should get around the problem of unmet de...

Re: Mint 19 Cinnamon unable to install gcc-8

It shows your system is trying to install package meant for Ubuntu 16.04 while Linux Mint 19 is based on Ubuntu 18.04. I guess you upgraded in place from Linux Mint 18.3 and had added some PPA related to GCC previously on that? If that isn't enough of a hint for your to figure it out in Software Sou...

Re: Thinkpad X1 Carbon 6th gen compatible?

You can try searching for any Ubuntu 18.04 reviews about this laptop. Linux Mint 19 uses the hardware stack from Ubuntu 18.04 so if Ubuntu 18.04 works well with it, generally so will Linux Mint 19. The ThinkWiki may provide help in case something doesn't work: https://www.thinkwiki.org. For the lapt...
