preparing to post the following:
I have tried approximately 5 times to upgrade libjbig2dec0. This last time it has been going 24 hours! The
only way I can stop it is to reboot or kill synaptic from the System Monitor Process Table. My Operating System is
A couple days ago I decided I would just uninstall libjbig2dec0. It proceeded to remind me that it would also remove a
gigantic list of programs including Gimp, Ocular ----- just a minute --- I'll kill this thing and expand the list.
There are 35 programs to be removed, including cups, evince, gimp, gnome, hplip, kde-standard, okular, 9
printer-drivers, including -gutenprint, -hpcups, and -postscript-hp. Besides that, it's going to install
foomatic-filters! Duuhhhh-----why bother, my operating system would be empty!
When I was about ready with the above, the upgrade notice returned. I noticed that it had a button with a label like
"Analysis" or "Review". I clicked it to get its input, and then saw another button "Apply", which I pressed. Five to
10 seconds later, it was done! I had discovered "Apper"!
I am left with the question "What is wrong with Synaptic?" Does it have a bug, or is it just my copy that has a bug?
Shall I remove it and re-install it? Thanks for any suggestions.
