.deb files keep braking my install (Ubuntu 8.04 on Sony VAIO)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 20, 2008
I have a very small download limit where I am. I have downloaded updates to my machine but needed to reinstall do to a video problem(I tried to get S-Video working and now the system hangs whenever I try to watch video full screen)
Before I formatted the partition I copied all the .deb files from /var/cache/apt/archives to an external drive.
I then reinstalled and tried to install the updates from the .deb files. This goes OK for a while but it seams to inevitably brake the system and I get a broken package error. When I go to fix the error multiple packages have to be removed and I am worse off than before.(ie. terminal not working, no panel etc.)
I'm wondering what the cause for this could be and/or how I can fix this.
I am using Ubuntu 8.04 on A Sony VAIO VGN CR125E
Intel T7100 1.8GHz
Video X3100 (965 chipset?)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

how do I install .RPM files on ubuntu?

I'm having a huge problem trying to get my printer to work with ubuntu. I'm not getting any answers for my request for help, but no one is answering me. I'm trying to fix the problem myself, I swear I am, but I can't, because I don't know how to make .rpm files work in ubuntu, which uses .deb.
I have looked around for answers on this and I found out about Alien, which is a command line program, and that's okay. But it won't work.
The reason why it won't work is that it keeps saying "file not found" when I try to use it, even though the file is demonstably THERE.
I have tried:
carefully typing the file name
copying the filename and pasting it
pasting the entire command.
the command that I am attempting to use is:
sudo alien -d epson-inkjet-printer-201105w-1.0.0-1lsb3.2.i486.rpm
which is the actual name of an actual file that I actually downloaded, but I keep getting
"epson-inkjet-printer-201105w-1.0.0-1lsb3.2.i486.rpm" not found.

Ubuntu 11.10 Clear Recent Files Newbie
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 22, 2011
Just got the 11.10 upgrade a few days ago and I was wondering if there is an easy way to clear recent files and possibly prevent new ones from showing up. I found this piece of code for terminal to clear files:
And it works well enough, run it and then I log out and login and recent files are gone. Along with this I found this piece for terminal that is supposed to prevent more recent file posts:
echo -n > ~/.recently-used.xbel
sudo chattr +i .recently-used.xbel
Which did not work at all.

how to delete all Ubuntu One files?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 2, 2013
I currently have just under 60 GB of files/folders in my Ubuntu One account. I do not currently have these files synced to any computers. I would like to easily delete all these files in the cloud so that I can start over. This doesn't seem to be as straight forward as expected. I can manualy delete files and folders but I only have the option to "stop syncing" directories (e.g., Documents, Music, etc). I want to totally wipe everything without, quite tediously, deleting every file and folder manually. I also do not want to wait for all files to sync to the computer and then delete them locally. That would also be incredibly inconvenient.
Deleting files/folders in Ubuntu 7.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 7, 2007
I've installed Ubuntu 7.04 on my C:\ drive. There is no other OS on that drive.
On what would have been my D:\ drive there are documents of all descriptions which were created when the machine was a Windows XP machine. I want to delete most of these files but Ubuntu won't let me.
The procedure I'm following is as follows,
* I single left click on the folder or file that I want to delete.
* I press the [Del] key on the keyboard.
* I get a message "Cannot move file to the Deleted Items folder, do you want to delete it permanently?"
*I mouse click the on-screen "Delete" button.
This brings up an on-screen message "Error wile deleting <filename> cannot be deleted because it is on a read-only disk."
If I right-click on a folder that I wish to delete and select "Properties" then select the Permissions" tab, all the options are greyed out. At the bottom of the box is the message "You are not the owner, so you can'
