Re: How to uninstall Opera browser completely?

I've remembered incorrectly. Not clear to me from its manpage but after testing it indeed works as you say. In any case, Opera package is already removed and OP need not do anything further on that end.

Re: How to uninstall Opera browser completely?

Yes. apt-get and apt do the same and account for dependencies. dpkg is a low level tool and does not account for dependencies. You should generally not use dpkg (you could remove something that something else depends on, while apt-get and apt will inform you of that).

Re: How to uninstall Opera browser completely?

There's 3 things to do: Uninstall the Opera package through Software Manager. That is all the software it has installed from Opera itself. You can also uninstall it more fully from terminal with command: apt purge opera-stable Open Software Sources from your menu. Go to the Additional repositories t...

Re: best app to search for files by content

I'm not the best to answer this as I just use grep from the terminal (or actually ripgrep, which is 20 times faster). Recoll and Catfish are the obvious ones to try if you need something with a GUI. A look on https://alternativeto.net/ comes up with two other options: DocFetcher and Searchmonkey. Th...

Re: Not UTF-8 valid

Failing anything else you could try running the installer from the terminal and prefix the installer comma...

Re: Crash when watching youtube

Please run the following command on the terminal and share its output here (you can select and copy text on the terminal through its Edit menu). This way others get a bit of info about your system and can with that hopefully help figure out the cause.

Re: Cant install "Authenticator"

The flathub.org repository seems to suffer performance issues a bit often. Suggestion is to try again at a later moment. To not have to find it in Software Manager each time you can also run this command from the terminal to try and install it: flatpak install flathub com.github.bilelmoussaoui.Authe...

Re: install.sh only for ubuntu, debian and fedora

My bad. Deleted too many lines from the script. Amended my post above. Where you deleted the lines you should also add these lines back into the script:

Code: Select all

install='sudo apt-get -y install'
remove='sudo apt-get -y remove'
pkginst='sudo dpkg -i'
update='sudo apt-get'

Re: install.sh only for ubuntu, debian and fedora

The install.sh script uses the old lsb_release command to find out which distro you're using, instead of the newer /etc/os-release file. Ideally the mininet-wifi developers change their script to use the /etc/os-release file as that includes information about both the distro being used and the distr...

Bit weird that. Probably somehow because of: "Location is derived from the user setting the timezone and location in the installer and not from an identifiable IP address."
