The problem I previously had is HERE

I believe the new problem is related as I now no longer have VLC installed and when I tried to install it through Muon Package Manager, I get this;

The "vlc" package could not be marked for installation or upgrade:

Depends: vlc ,but is not installable
Depends: vlc ,but is not installable
Recommends: vlc ,but is not installable
Recommends: vlc ,but is not installable

Yes, the warnings appear twice for some reason.

General Help & Advice / Re: Strange problem with DE's
« on: January 10, 2017, 02:25:32 pm »
I have noticed in System Monitor that there are the 'other' programs, 'System Monitor <2> and the second Firefox. I right clicked on one and up popped a small menu with 'Show Application Window'. I selected this option and it displayed the program, 'System Monitor <2>' where I was able to see the 'other' programs.
, avahi-daemon,
There were duplicates of other programs too, Ksysguard,Ksysguardd, avahi-daemon, dbus-daemon, about 8 'gettys', Kworker, ksoftirqd, numerous 'kworker', lightdm, migration.

To me, that looks like 2 sets of system files...

General Help & Advice / Strange problem with DE's
« on: January 10, 2017, 04:15:59 am »
This is such a weird problem, I don't even know how to ask to fix it.

I have a monitor connected via VGA and a flatscreen TV connected via HDMI
The DE's are NOT mirrored and the primary DE's the monitor.

what is happening sometimes is both DE's completely change appearance, i.e. I have numerous widgets on both DE's and when the strange 'thing' happens, all the widgets on both DE's vanish and also what is happening is, on one set of DE's I have System Monitor and Firefox, along with a few other programs running.

When this 'glitch' happens, I get the title of System Monitor changed to System Monitor <2> and Firefox has also changed, I have tabbed browsing appear, not the user add-on version but the one updated by Firefox. In the DE's with the widgets on screen, theres nothing in the tabbed browsing menu, but the alternate one has all my saved sites in tabbed browsing.

The 'glitch' can happen at any time when I am opening a program or changing desktop resolution, it most recently happened when I opened okular by selecting the PDF in Dolphin. I tried closing and re-opening okular to see if it changed back but nothing happened, I also tried getting the 'other' DE's back by changing screen resolution but still nothing.

Where are these 'other' DE's coming from ?

You could purge that PPA, but it'll mean loosing that version of VLC (?)

That's a sacrifice I'm willing to take, if it means using a version which 14.04 classes as current stable then so be it.

How do I go about it, do I just remove the PPA and the system will revert to the current stable for 14.04?

Mark, I think I've found the cause of the problem. THIS page is where I found I could install the newest version of VLC, but all it's caused is problems.

Looks like
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get clean
sorted it as when I ran Muon update Manager, there were updates to install, so I installed them. Then I re-checked for updates and there were none and no further warning about the two packages.

Will that take me away from 14.04? i.e. to the next version?
If so, I don't want to proceed with the command as I prefer to stick with 14.04 (and will have to suffer the held back packages).

If it keeps me on 14.04 then I will continue with the command.

All went ok but I saw this;

The following packages have been kept back:
  mencoder mplayer
The following packages will be upgraded:
  ghostscript ghostscript-x google-chrome-stable libgs9 libgs9-common

It's still not touching them!

p.s. Sorry for taking a while to get back to you.
