There is a menu option in Pycharm to create a shortcut in the App Launcher.
1) Start PyCharm...
...like you mentioned above.
2) Once PyCharm is up and running, go to the Tools menu and select "Create Desktop Entry..." I think it also asks you if you want to create the desktop entry for all users.
Now the Pycharm program will be in ...
Thanks, the 'sudo add-apt-repository' command on its own was not working.
I found the answer:
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:flacon
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install flacon
Actually the answer is more of "yes and no". There is a lot of system libraries that has been specifically modified for the elementary OS look & feel (libgtk, etc.). You can install any Ubuntu or even third party applications most of the time, however.
You can find some more information (it is about PPAs but might be applicable to other third party apps ...
Unfortunately the author of the PPA you are using hasn't built Lollypop for Ubuntu 14.04 (which is what Freya is based on), which is why you are getting an error saying the package could not be located.
You can build it yourself using the instructions: https://github.com/gnumdk/lollypop, however I'm not sure if you'll be able to install the required ...
Actually this issue is dealt with here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/879495/update-after-purging-intel-01-org-driver-removed-gnome-software/879516
There is a problem with Ubuntu Xenial packages I believe, and could quite possibly be the cause of your issue. I don't think technically this is an elementary OS issue, but an issue affecting all Ubuntu 16.4 ...
wget https://dl.pstmn.io/download/latest/linux64 -O postman.tar.gz
sudo tar -xzf postman.tar.gz -C /opt
sudo ln -s /opt/Postman/Postman /usr/bin/postman
You can also get Postman to show up in the Unity Launcher:
cat > ~/.local/share/applications/postman.desktop <<EOL
TLDR: Uninstall and remove brave from your source, then run this on the terminal if you are using Juno.
curl https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/brave-core.asc | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/ bionic main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release-bionic.list
sudo apt ...
If it runs in Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic) 99% will run on elementary OS Juno release-juno
From their website, run to install it:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:flacon
When you add a PPA, add-apt-repository runs apt update after so you won't need to do it. If it does not, just run manually sudo apt update and then install
sudo apt install flacon
This is probably a bug that will be fixed soon. In the meantime you can launch Flatpak applications from the terminal. First execute
to get the list of you applications. Then run your chosen application (ie. org.example.app) by
flatpak run org.example.app
If you want to add the application to your application menu by hand, you need to find ...
You failed writing the command and also the command, even if you write it well, will not work for elementary as it is.
To fix it and then install Brave through apt, open a terminal and write and execute:
$ sudo rm -fr /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser*
$ echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/bionic main" | sudo ...
I was able to replicate your issue. I am able to start the program from the command line:
mono /usr/share/ssm/Screenshot\ Monitor.exe
This will work as well:
mono '/usr/share/ssm/Screenshot Monitor.exe'
A Log In window appeared.
But I'm not sure why it won't start by clicking on the icon.
I installed it in Ubuntu and it works just fine. You can ...
You didn't mention how you installed Blender, but I guess you downloaded the official build from the website as a tar.bz2 and extracted that somewhere. If you download from AppCenter it should work out of the box, but you will probably not get the most current version.
If you installed it manually, in order for Blender to show up in the desktop environment ...
Not true (Is there a posibility [one in a million] that an app made for bionic doesn't run on juno, yes maybe, but the normal is that any made for bionic will run)
eOS release-juno is based on Ubuntu 18.04, you can use any app that is designed to bionic, in fact we use those repos to install thirdpartyapps where the repo owner doesn't have a specific eOS ...
I had the same error message as Andy when trying to install Brave via apt-get (using the same instructions on the Brave browser website)
My workaround was to install the Brave snap package:
sudo snap install brave
The Brave icon will be available in the menu after rebooting.
But as far as authorizing that repo...I have no idea.
If you installed a third party kernel and then removed the source this could happen
It's not ElementaryOS's problem (because EOS didn't had that kernel version - Release Candidate) but I may help you
You can remove the package even if it's broken with the command:
$ sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq <package>
And lastly, it's sudo apt ...
I am using 0.4.1 Loki. You are installing from the terminal, so did you do:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install <name-of-package>
You could also do a search to confirm the existence of libgstreamer-plugins-good1.0-0 as:
sudo apt-cache search libgstreamer-plugins
When I do the above my system confirms that libgstreamer-plugins-good1.0-0 is in ...
My computer no longer crashes but the elementary tweaks tool still does not show up anywhere. :( also when trying some of your commands the terminal said it couldn't locate elementary tweaks or something. (sorry I'm not very accurate, novice user here)
When you first install mysql server and the installation does not ask for root password, it takes auth_socket as default plugin for mysql root user, which does not allow root connections without sudo.
You can test this if you run mysql -u root(ERROR 1698: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost') and sudo mysql -u root.
There are two solutions:
Since you have not deployed a site and their are easier options out there. I recommend removing everything you have done thus far and selecting one of the two options below.
Remove previous LAMP installs
sudo apt-get purge mysql* apache* php*
sudo apt autoremove && sudo apt autoclean
Use tasksel to install LAMP
sudo apt install tasksel
I hate when my apps doesn't show up in the launcher too 😒😒
I think AppEditor can solve your problems, it's a great app for editing our launcher/slingshot entries. Link: AppEditor
I will try to show you a practical example, hope it can help.
Goal: Create an icon to launch the Python Interpreter. As you can see I have no Python Interpreter in my ...
After trying to fix this countless of times I found a solution.
First I ran
sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get install -f (Too see what package gives the problem)
After I saw the problem was still there I edited it manually.
I Located the corrupt package, and removed the whole block of information about it and saved the file.
sudo -i nano /var/...
I'm not sure how you are trying to launch the app, from slingshot, from the command line?
!/usr/bin/env xdg-open is only needed if you are trying to launch from the command line, and should have # sign in front #!/usr/bin/env xdg-open
This is old though. Used to you could chmod +x on the .desktop file and run ./nameof.desktop, but now that will just open ...
