How do I upgrade Mint from Olivia to Nadia?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 14, 2014
I remember that Synaptics gave a possibility to select such an upgrade, but I cannot find it anymore. I run Olivia, which is no longer supported, so I have to upgrade.
I am also interested in command-line utilities, but I cannot find the right command in aptitude either.

How can I using commandline tools extract specific bytes, and byte ranges in the middle of file.

Thanks in advance
How to create an executable from a ".o" file?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 20, 2009
Hi all -
I'm getting involved in helping to do some docs for a project. The project uses the "Boost QuickBook" tool to help in creating the docs.
Anyway, to cut a long story short, I followed the instructions which should have (IIUC) created an executable called "quickbook". Instead, all that I have found (in a particular subdirectory) is about ten or so ".o" files, including "quickbook.o".
I believe they're "object files", not executables, so mny question is - can I create an executable from "quickbook.o", and if so, how?
Very many thanks in advance - bye for now -

location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 4, 2009
I've done a lot of searching for a command to switch users from the command line. I don't mean "su user2", but to switch like the applet in the top right corner does it.
I guess it will look like "gnome-switch-user", but I can't find anything.

How Do I Receive Email From the Command Line?
- date: May 20, 2011
Background: I want to send and receive emails from the command line. I'm an OS X immigrant and I don't know my way around a shell. I learned what sudo and man pages are last week. I'm hoping to learn more by doing more in the Terminal, and I check my emails a lot, so that would be a nice place to start.
I've had a root around, but there doesn't seem to be much on the relevant fora or wikis to help me.
The core of the problem: When I enter
the shell returns
No mail for USER
I know that there's mail waiting for me. When I log into Gmail in my web browser, I can see it. So, I assume that the problem is that heirloom-mailx (the mail app I've installed) isn't connecting to my Gmail account for some reason.
I originally also noticed that I couldn't send emails by typing
$ mail [email protected]
but I found this post, and after following the steps it outlines, I have successfully composed and sent mail from the command line. I assume that I h
How do I install Eclipse from a tar.gz file?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 7, 2009
I just installed the Eclipse package from eclipse.org (it is called "Eclipse Galileo" and I think it is version 3.5). Well, I got a tar.gz file. I unpacked it and the program works fine, but it's not quite the same as all of the other programs.
What do I do to make Eclipse appear as a program under Applications/Programming? Do I need to make a new folder in the /home directory or what? There's got to be a more direct way.
