Where did my Handbrake go?

Post by kate »

I just went to use it and can't find it! I'm not sure where to look in my filesystem, but I didn't see a trace of it in the menu and a filesystem search comes up with two listings: handbrake.list and handbrake.postrm... can someone help me? I've been using it for awhile now and don't know what happened... Thanks.

(edited to add found files.)

That's weird...what does the following command give you, then?

Code: Select all

cat /etc/apt/sources.list
ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
You do have an active connection to the Internet, right? Uhmmm...perhaps try refreshing APT first?

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install handbrake-gtk

Re: Where did my Handbrake go?

Oh...that's why. You're still using Mint 7 (Gloria), a.k.a. Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04, which Ubuntu officially cut support for in October 2010. Keep in mind that regular releases receive support for only 1.5 years, and after that, not only are updates no longer offered, you can no longer fetch packages from the repositories of unsupported releases.

It is definitely time to upgrade...I would suggest Mint 9 LTS, which will be supported until April 2013 (http://www.linuxmint.com/oldreleases.php). Otherwise, you will not receive any updates or be able to install any packages from Ubuntu's archives.

No. This is not WIndows. :P You are not forced to upgrade your system automatically; in fact, if you don't do anything, no package upgrades will ever be installed. mintUpdate will notify you of updates, but it'll never update your packages unless you tell it to do so.

Well, I know it isn't Windows. : ) I've been a Linux user since 2000, but I don't get into the techie stuff of it, as you can tell by my issues here. : ) Anyway, I use mintUpdate and I thought it would tell me of major upgrades is all. Thank you for the guidance! I have a lot to learn, but mostly I leave it alone if it seems to be working (unlike my ability to modify my screen brightness!)...
