Re: Linux Mint Cinnamon 19 upgrade - 'apt --fix-broken install'

The message still correct, the actual apt runs this fine, as usual it's Mint-specific bug, namely with the apt python script Mint uses to call the real apt binary. Sounds about right - I'm completely unimpressed with just about all the Mint python stuff and avoid using any of it whenever I can. And...

apt runs that just fine. Short version is
No, apt doesn't accept "--fix-broken" as an argument and the error/warning message is incorrect.

How do I try this 'apt --fix-broken install'? Do I have to run this command in a specific directory?
IIRC, that message has a mistake and "apt" won't do it; run

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get --fix-broken install
You don't need to "be" in any given directory.

That's sort of strange because I installed it.
No, you didn't, but you may have installed libk3b7-extracodecs.

Re: dependencies for K3b

Why are "libmadlib" and libk3b7-extracodes" not installed by default when installing K3b on Linux Mint Mate version 19 ? Is this one of those legalistic things ? Thanks.

There used to be a way to kill this using about:config. My notes show
browser.search.oneoff but that is no longer in the config.
FWIW, browser.search.oneoff is not in FF 60.0.2 either. I reverted to 60 because 61 wouldn't auto-fill logins correctly.

Re: cant remove linux-image-extra-4.13.0-45-generic

ran the commands one by one and re-booted twice, didn't seem to help. It looks like the apt system thinks it's installed but the files are missing. You might try reinstalling it (thru synaptic, search for '4.13.0-45' on the slow search, rt-click->reinstall), then purging it. Unfortunately a 'kernel...

Re: /boot partition has no space.

When I installed Linux Mint 17.2, it configured /boot with only 100 Mb of space. That's not big enough for more than one kernel. Since each new kernel update keeps previous ones, I'm pretty sure that's wrong. there is no space for anything new since 4.4.0-127.. How do I go about removing stale kern...

Although it's better to use the software installer system to remove fonts, you can just remove the font files from /usr/share/fonts then do sudo fc-cache -fv and they won't show up anywhere...
