Re: [SOLVED]Changing keyboard layout in console

You can edit the file /etc/default/console-setup directly, there is no need for dpkg-reconfigure console-setup. Read console-setup(5). dpkg-reconfigure console-setup is the way I found to make changes permanent, otherwise changes were lost upon reboot (I'm on Buster). Have you done something else t...

Re: [SOLVED]Changing keyboard layout in console

This is the right solution, thanks pythagorasmk. The loadkeys method is definitely to be forgotten then (it was an old remembrance btw, something I used long ago). Here is the documentation on Debian Wiki: https://wiki.debian.org/Keyboard man 7 xkeyboard-config is useful to find some configuration e...

Re: Changing keyboard layout in console

It is possible to use loadkeys(1) to change keyboard layout on the fly (i.e. without changing system configuration): - package console-data must be installed - you have to allow your user to use loadkeys (see https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/85374/loadkeys-gives-permission-denied-for-normal-...

Re: Is apt dependency resolution different as that of apt-ge

Thank you all for your replies. I used to use apt-get since aptitude was no more a recommended method for release to release upgrade because I don't like to mix this kind of utilities. It's now absolutely clear that apt and apt-get can ultimately be considered as the same utilities as far as depende...

Re: Update to buster failed

@fabien just showed that the problem happens on a "vanilla" upgrade from stretch to buster, which seems to be the same problem that the OP (@mountaineer) has, so he's basically confirmed it. I'm however confused as to whether the java packages are available or not on stretch. Thanks reino...

Re: Update to buster failed

@fabien Not sure it is ideal to mix your update problem with mountaineer update problem. Hello: I attempted to update stretch to buster, but the process stopped with the following message: Errors were encountered while processing: /tmp/apt-dpkg-install-IOjZsR/036-libjsp-api-java_2.3.4-2_all.deb /tm...

Re: Update to buster failed

Did you have a look at: https://www.debian.org/releases/stable/amd64/release-notes/ch-upgrading.en.html ? File conflicts should not occur if you upgrade from a “pure” stretch system, but can occur if you have unofficial backports installed. Yes I did, last summer before upgrading a bunch of Stretch...

Is apt dependency resolution different as that of apt-get?

Is apt dependency resolution algorithm different as that of apt-get? apt(8) manual states «apt provides a high-level commandline interface for the package management system», from which I feel allowed to infer that it's merely a set of commands (and possibly prechosen options) over a lower infrastru...

Re: Upgrade from 9 to 10 kernel fails to load modules [SOLVE

I think the dependency resolution algorithm is different as well. Different from apt-get? What makes you think so? I haven't read documentation or debates but I thought that that was superficial differences as the man states clearly «apt provides a high-level commandline interface for the package m...

Re: Who else has been caught by Mozilla's latest trick?

I have only one profile and that's probably why I have only one compatibility.ini file and that I didn't need to use profilemanager. In your case I would put a small script in ~/.local/bin/ that would rewrite compatibility.ini each time Thunderbird is launched. I remember I had to find a way so that...
