Re: Repository Question

Thanks, Wharf Rat, Most was borne out of necessity and intrigue. I've got the intrigue part. I got bit by the linux bug. The more I mess with Linux, the more I enjoy it. ... you just have to stick with it and accept mistakes and obstacles as learning opportunities. I'm pretty good at the mistakes pa...

Re: Repository Question

First, Wharf Rat, thank you for all of your help. I don't know exactly what you're trying to do and why you needed specific java packages and even if you tried to explain it to me I probably wouldn't be able to comprehend it since I have absolutely no knowledge of it. Actually, it is pretty simple i...

Re: Repository Question

I hate ask again, but which log would it be in? I saved the *other* one in a LibreOffice file, but I'm clueless where the one for the purge would be, sorry.

Re: Repository Question

Hi Wharf Rat, According the Ubuntu forum where I got that, somebody there said it had changed to the above. They mentioned both of the versions of the repository. I'll go back and look at it again if I have to. And in 'nix, at least, there are more ways than one to skin a cat. :D Maybe I'll add the ...

Re: Terminal Question

Do you have a defunct netbean that's still in memory I don't think so. The installer mentioned "settings from another install", or something like that, but I had uninstalled it. The 'Beans people claimed it shouldn't hurt. But, I dumped it anyway. I haven't rebooted. I left that crap with...

It doesn't start from there either, but I see, for 1/4 of a second, an error message. I'd really like to see that error. I...
