Hi all,

I new to Linux, installed Mint 11 and right now very happy with it.
I'd like to edit some video footage with Cindelerra, and to install it I had to enable Universe and Multiverse repositories.
I follewed this tutorial: (part 3)
http://simplyubuntu.wordpress.com/2006/ ... mer/#repos

Thing is, in the software manager or in Synaptic, in the deposit list, Universe and Multiverse don't appear.
I only get this list (see screenshot).
I wanted to edit the sources.list file but this seems impossible I can't actually edit in with a text editor.
And with terminal command lines

sudo gedit/etc/apt/sources.list

it just tells me

sudo: gedit/etc/apt/sources.list: command not found

Any ideas??
Isn't there a way to just install the package after downloading it from the internet?
Thanks a loot!

This page describes how to manage software repositories from the command line. (GUI tools are also available: Managing Repositories in Ubuntu or Kubuntu).

If you are using a minimal install or server install you will need to be familiar with a terminal based text editor like nano. If you are using a GUI install you can use Nano or GEdit.

The Basics

Ubuntu uses apt for package management. Apt stores a list of repositories or software channels in the file

/etc/apt/sources.list

and in any file with the suffix .list under the directory

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/

See man sources.list for more about this storage mechanism.

By editing these files from the command line, we can add, remove, or temporarily disable software repositories.

Note: It's always a good idea to backup a configuration file like sources.list before you edit it. To do so, issue the following command:

sudo cp /etc/apt/sources.list...

We often come across lots of RAR archive files over the Internet and download them to our Ubuntu systems. By defualt the archive manager for ubuntu does not support RAR files and it is unable to work with them. You will need to enable RAR support, if you want to use RAR files in Ubuntu. Its pretty simply, just go though the following simple steps to achieve it.

First of all, right click the RAR file and choose the Open with Archive Manager option.

Here is the error message which is shown.

Now, open the terminal from Applications > Accessories > Terminal and run the following command:

sudo apt-get install rar unrar

It will install the required RAR modules on your Ubuntu system, once the installation is completed, then you will be able to easily open RAR files by right clicking them and choosing the Open with Archive Manager option. Enjoy!

When you want to install new software or updates to already installed Ubuntu software, by default Ubuntu provides four different software repositories to get it from. These repositories are Main, Universe, Restricted, and Multiverse. Maybe you have wondered what’s behind their cryptic names. Here is what each of these represent.

The Main repository is the largest one. It includes all core packages as well as all the free and open-source packages from the default Ubuntu installation. All the software in the Main repo is free and open-source – no exceptions here.

All the software in the Main repo is maintained by Canonical, the parent company of Ubuntu. This means the package has been tested for compliance before inclusion in the build. It also means that security updates and critical bug fixes for the package will be provided by Canonical for the lifetime of this particular Ubuntu release (three or five years or more – this varies among releases).

Your initial first few days or weeks with a new operating system can be a somewhat frustrating experience, and Ubuntu is no different in this respect. The following list should help to relieve some of the frustration that accompanies the transition to Ubuntu. This list is by no means exhaustive, but it does answer several commonly asked questions by newcomers to Ubuntu who have no prior Linux experience.

1. What is the Terminal (or command line), and where is it located?
The Terminal allows you to perform various tasks from a command line. It is an incredibly powerful — and as a consequence, potentially dangerous — tool that enables you to quickly and effectively execute commands. Because users can simply copy and paste text into the Terminal, it is often the preferred method of problem resolution in online help forums or guides.

You can access the Terminal by clicking on ‘Applications’ at the top left of the screen, then holding your cursor over ‘Accessories’,...

Why cant you guys just make multiverse act like Multiworld? I had no problems with that until i switched to 1.7.10 then i was forced to go with multiverse. Multiworld unloaded everything if it wasnt in use and even worked side by side with Forge.

MY PROBLEM IS: The modpack has over 40 worlds, and then my own custom 5 overworlds. When the server starts all of these worlds are loaded but multiverse keeps half of them loaded up even when no one is on them. I want it to unload ALL of the worlds if no one is using them or autoload: 'false' if its set to false that should mean it wont load the worlds up period when the server starts. But it does. And it keeps it loaded forever.

Forge unloads worlds for a reason, its a memory problem. Having 20,30,40 worlds loaded at the same time is like taking an axe to your servers ram.

When i didn't have multiverse installed my modded server of 200 mods used 1.2GB on start up. With multiverse it uses 2.8GB on start up....

Install video drivers

If required/desired, install hardware specific video drivers (nVidia or ATI). Go to System?Administration?Hardware Drivers and enable the drivers for your video card. You will need to reboot to make this take affect.

Install Flash plugin

Install one of flashplugin-installer, swfdec-mozilla, or mozilla-plugin-gnash.
First enable the multiverse repository. Go to System?Administration?Software Sources. Make sure the check boxes for main, universe, restricted, and multiverse are selected.

While you're in there, select the Other Software tab and enable the partner repository. Now that multiverse is enabled, you can install the Flash plugin.

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer

I’m using Maven 3.3.3 with Java 8 on Mac Yosemite. I have a multi-module project.

When I build my one of my child modules, for example, “my-module” from above, using “mvn clean install”, the build attempts to download the child module artifacts from a remote repository I have defined in my ~/.m2/settings.xml file. Output is below

This post will show you how to install Steam on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

Now, before you say it, I know. You’re reading this with a slightly egregious look on your face because, after all, it’s easy to install Steam on Ubuntu, right?

Perhaps not as easy as it could be.

You asked for this guide

Since Xenial’s launch a fair few readers have mailed us seeking help on installing the Steam, the popular digital games distribution platform, on their clean install. Most of these requests wrestle with the installer package distributed on the official Steam website.

In this post I will show you how to install Steam on Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus — both the recommended way, and the very much unrecommended way!

For the purposes of this guide I’m going to assume two things: 1) you’re already running Ubuntu 16.04 (Unity), and 2) you have a device capable of running Steam and/or meets the Steam for Linux system requirements.

Description

This page describes how to manage software repositories from the command line. This is necessary if you are running a minimal installation, server install (w/o a GUI) and some users actually prefer this to GUI tools available in Managing Repositories in Ubuntu or Kubuntu.

The Basics

Apt stores a list of the repositories or software channels in this file

/etc/apt/sources.list

Typically, the contents of the file look something like this:

# deb cdrom:[Ubuntu 11.04 _Natty Narwhal_ - Release i386 (20110426)]/ natty main restricted # deb cdrom:[Ubuntu 11.04 _Natty Narwhal_ - Release i386 (20110426)]/ natty main restricted # See http://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes for how to upgrade to # newer versions of the distribution. deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ natty main restricted deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ natty main restricted ## Major bug fix updates produced after the final release of the ## distribution. deb...

You can also restrict this a little bit if you only want some very specific packages from non-free (firmwares for your hardware for example).

To do so, keep your /etc/apt/sources.list as described by @Andrew M. Then, use Apt Pinning to disable by default all non-free packages for your current release:

Create a file named /etc/apt/preferences.d/non-free_policy containing the following directives:

Explanation: Disable packages from non-free tree by default Package: * Pin: release o=Debian,a=stable,l=Debian,c=non-free Pin-Priority: -1

Now, create another file for the specific package you want to get from non-free.
Let's assume you want to add the Intel drivers for wireless cards for instance (package firmware-iwlwifi).
Create a file name /etc/apt/preferences.d/firmware-iwlwifi_nonfree with these lines:

Explanation: Enable package firmware-iwlwifi from non-free tree Package: firmware-iwlwifi Pin: release o=Debian,a=stable,l=Debian,c=non-free...

The Multiverse repository contains packages (software) that is "not free" , referring to licensing restrictions.

The Multiverse repository contains software which has been classified as non-free. This software may not be permitted in some jurisdictions. When installing each package from this repository, you should verify that the laws of your country permit you to use it. Also, this software may not include security updates.

For additional information on the philosophy of the ubuntu repositories, see Overview of the default Ubuntu software repositories

You can enable the repository from the command line or graphically.

Graphically

Open Software center, navigate to the "Ubuntu software" tab at the top, select (check off) multiverse.

Use the "Reload" button to update your package list.

If you want in one command and not use Software source ticking then in terminal put:

sudo add-apt-repository universe

On older versions of Ubuntu, you might have to use a full source line:

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) universe"

To enable all Ubuntu software (main universe restricted multiverse) repositories use

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) main universe restricted multiverse"

you can add also partner repository with different link (see difference is ubuntu to canonical)

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) partner"

Then update the package list:

sudo apt-get update

p.s.

$(lsb_release -sc) checks your Ubuntu version and puts its name in the source link. Since 12.04 is called precise, you can test in a terminal that lsb_release -sc gives precise. That adds the precise name of your Ubuntu release...

There are thousands of programs available to install on Ubuntu. These programs are stored in software archives (repositories) and are available for installation over the Internet. This makes it very easy to install new programs. It is also very secure, because each program you install is thoroughly tested and built specifically for Ubuntu.

The universe and multiverse repositories are official Ubuntu repositories, with safe, well-tested programs. The only difference between them and the repositories enabled by default is that the universe and multiverse repositories are maintained by the Ubuntu community rather than by paid Ubuntu developers.

There are three ways to enable the universe and multiverse repositories in Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron): via the graphical Software Sources tool,via the Synaptic Package Manager or via the command line.

This question already has an answer here:

How do I enable the “Universe” repository? 4 answers

I finally found answer myself. To put all ubuntu sources to work without clicking them just enter in terminal

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) main universe restricted multiverse"

So for just "Universe" would be

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) universe"

You can then check in Software sources it will show it works now. You can delete manually from sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list line http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu lucid main universe restricted multiverse and save and see in Software sources nothing is ticked. Then do

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) universe"

& that makes Just universe ticked. For all enabled do

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu...

Ubuntu comes by default with Multiverse repositories installed by not enabled. There are many useful packages in multiverse that won't appear unless you enable the repository. What is multiverse? It's basically a repository of software packages not supported by ubuntu proper. This includes non-free and restricted-use packages. Don't let that scare you. For the most part, it just means that you may be using some closed-sourced software. Many of this software is quite common (e.g. Java).

You can enable this repository simply by selecting the multiverse checkbox under System > Administration > Software Sources. You might also want to check universe and restricted while you're in there. This can also be accomplished via terminal:

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list (backup first if squeamish)

The # or ## character(s) represent a line that's commented out. Removing these characters from the beginning of a line will make it live. Simply find the lines beginning...

Question:

This question already has an answer here:

How do you use terminal to enable Universe source? Or any those 4 from Software Sources: Main, Universe, Restricted, Multiverse Main is on by default and Restricted is on if durring Ubuntu installation i tick Enable Restricted Formats. Answer with line where version checked so it auto detects it. Like command I know for partner but that goes to Other Software tab sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner"

There are literally thousands of Ubuntu programs available to meet the needs of Ubuntu users. Many of these programs are stored in software archives commonly referred to as repositories. Repositories make it easy to install new software, while also providing a high level of security, since the software is thoroughly tested and built specifically for each version of Ubuntu.

Ubuntu distinguishes between software that is "free" and software that is not free. For details of Ubuntu's Free Software Philosophy please see here.

The four main repositories are:

Main - Canonical-supported free and open-source software.

Universe - Community-maintained free and open-source software.

Restricted - Proprietary drivers for devices.

Multiverse - Software restricted by copyright or legal issues.

The Ubuntu Install CDs contain software from the "Main" and "Restricted" repositories, so if you have no internet connection you can still install...
