@edward: It would be helpful if you could share a paste of the terminal logs (output). Then we can diagnose the problem. Thanks! Wink Very Happy

Post by Edward on Sun May 15, 2016 1:19 am

Would Someone Be Kind To Help Me Install Ubuntu Tweak? I'm Trying To Download It From LaunchPad And When Firefox
Finishes The Download It Opens Up Stating To Download with Software Install, But, When I Do That It Doesn't Open.
When I Click On Other And Go To Application Installer It States That I Don't Have Permission. Can Somebody Help me Install Ubuntu Tweak In The Terminal Instead?
Also Thank You James Tobin.

That "software install" application does me no luck either, it never does what i want it to do. You should right click the deb file you got in the downloads folder and select "open with" then select "Ubuntu Software Center" or Gdebi if you have it installed. That will work better.

Hope this helps! Wink Very Happy

Thanks James...When I Open the Ubuntu Tweak with the Ubuntu Software Center, It gives an Error Message "Dependency is not Satisfiable: gir1.2-vte-2.90...I even tried it with Gbebi Installer and I get the same Error Message.

@edward: sorry for late reply i am back now. A dependency is a program that must be installed for the program you are trying to install to install. First I would try to use "sudo apt-get install gir1.20vte-2.90". If that does not work you should search for gir1.20vte-2.90" on the internet and see if you can download it.

Hope this helps! Wink Very Happy

James! It's no use. I tryed with Terminal Emulator and searched it on Google but it wouldn't install with gdebi. I guess I'll have to go with Debian OS.
Thanks and God Bless. Sad

Not so fast... you may have luck trying with not so many numbers such as "gir1.20vte" or something like that.

Also there were probably instructions on or linked from the download page where you got the deb file..... Maybe they have instructions to fix the unsatisfiable dependency.

No, getting another Debian OS won't fix the problem. An unsatisfiable dependency is not the fault of the distribution/OS. You will run into the same problem with other Debian OS's.

So dont give up Very Happy

I love ubuntu tweak but if some know the terminal commands to get rid of all
out dated files and all please advice.
I know this works

dpkg -l 'linux-*' | sed '/^ii/!d;/'"$(uname -r | sed "s/\(.*\)-\([^0-9]\+\)/\1/")"'/d;s/^[^ ]* [^ ]* \([^ ]*\).*/\1/;/[0-9]/!d' | xargs sudo apt-get -y purge

and apt-get clean and autoclean does some but not all.
