Thanks Mark.
I never knew that there were so many terminal commands, including extra ones installed afterwards.

General Help & Advice / [SOLVED] Terminal commands
« on: May 25, 2019, 01:38:43 pm »
I am going to create a dual boot of Kubuntu 16.04 & 18.04 and would like to have an almost identical setup and would like to install the same terminal commands I have in the already installed Kubuntu 16.04, such as 'alien' which is not a standard command.

How can I list all the available commands in terminal?

Thanks for that, I'll take a look at the link.

I'm looking for something which will protect me against malware & stuff such as keyloggers while browsing.
Free or otherwise.
My OS etc is listed below.

Many thanks

General Help & Advice / Re: Unable to see my printer in Virtualbox
« on: March 13, 2019, 10:13:14 pm »
I have no idea how but I think I've fixed it.

How do i get virtualbox to see my printer?
I can see all my USB Hard Drives but not a USB printer (Epson ET-3600)
I've got the latest version of Virtualbox and the extension pack (installed) and the guest additions iso
I'm having problems installing the guest additions as the instructions I find upon Googlin' how to install guest additions are only how to do it with a virtual ubuntu.

As a test, I've uninstalled Dolphin and with the link you gave me, I downloaded the rest of the files, 6 in total.
I then started to install them, I then encountered the same problem as above, 'cant satisfy dependencies' when trying to install 'libdolphinvcs-dev_16.04.3-0ubuntu1_amd64.debdolphin'.

I am also informed that there's a newer version in the repo's when installing 'dolphin_16.04.3-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb'.

 Upon trying to install the first package, I get 'Unable to satisfy dependencies' error.

Programming / I want to learn machine/assembly language
« on: December 10, 2018, 06:08:48 pm »
Many years ago, When I had a Commodore 16 (which had a built in 6502 assembler) I used to hack into games and edit them.
What I'd like to do is try and continue where I left off, but obviously on a modern up-to-date processor.
Where do I begin, what do I need to install to start writing/editing machine assembly language, where can I download any documentation/manuals to help refresh my memory?

It looks like it's a common problem.

Managed to fix the problem.
I Googled 'ubuntu has booted to busybox' and viewed a few results and found the command to fix the error...

While still in 'Busybox', I typed the command below
Code: [Select]
fsck /dev/sda1
NOTE: Change the sda1 to where ever you have your OS installed.

You could always force dolphin back to 4.15 .. but if you have the backports repo installed (which is **supposed** to seamlessly move you to the latest KDE), I can't guarantee that won't give you other problems.

As we can see, it doesn't as shouldn't I have the latest version of Dolphin installed?
Quote
As dolphin 4.16 now doesn't appear to require dolphin-dbg, it might be worth seeing what would happen if you simply uninstalled dolphin-dbg .. what's the output from dolphin-dbg

According to the reply from someone dealing with the bug report I filed, the info that dolphin-dbg provides was not included in my debug info which was automatically uploaded, so it looks like dolphin-dbg is not included in the installation of dolphin 16.04.
Quote
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get -s remove --purge dolphin-dbg
As I am unable to provide you with the output from my desktop version (as it's currently crashed), I can provide you with the output from my laptop, which I am having the same problem;

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package dolphin-dbg

Quote
the above command is only a "simulated dry run", nothing will actually get uninstalled .. it'll just tell us what would happen if we ran it without the "-s" option, so we can check if it'd be safe.

Have you got a LiveUSB ?
(really you should always have one of these)

I have, you've probably forgot you helped me install Multiboot (I think it was written by someone French).
Well, I've got the boot repair, gparted and multiple os'es and lots of other stuff.

If so, boot to it, and post the output from:
