Question: Does the Community Repo 32-bit version of FF 3.5 have the "Help > Check for Updates" feature enabled in the toolbar? I searched through this very long thread but I couldn't find information on that. No. I believe that feature is only available in the tarball version (when installed in a u...

Well for once I can duplicate your error. this:[INDENT][INDENT] static int __int hello_driver_init(void) [/INDENT][/INDENT]should be:[INDENT][INDENT] static int __init hello_driver_init(void) [/INDENT][/INDENT]One other thing, I'm not sure if that #define line is doing anything. I can build okay wit...

Just a question does this program keep a install history? In synaptic a history log is kept so one knows what packages were installed, that way if needed all dependencies can be uninstalled with the app if no longer wanted. Basically one clicks a link and an app and it's dependencies are installed,...

I installed the latest Karmic deb (0.3.6) from here without any problems (sources also here, too) since packages.ubuntu.com is down for some reason. Konqueror works out of the box--I restarted Firefox 3.5 and went to the Nautilus page at linuxappfinder. When I clicked on the install link, I got a d...

This seems to be kind of inconsistent to me. I've tried to see if it would install some packages that I don't have installed. For some it works and with others nothing happens. for example apt:3dchess or apt://3dchess I get nothing when i tried apt:ace-of-penguins or apt://ace-of-penguins it works (...

yes, attached pic. I also see you say you click on the "Install Now" icon. I don't seem to have any icon? Like I said I don't really know how to get rid of that apturl Preferences Content Type. Back in about:config did you happen to end up with a erroneous pref with "apturl" as part of its name? Fo...

If you right click on line created in error and click on reset, it unbolds and then close the tab with about:config. Restart about:config and they are gone. At least the ones I did are. Just discovered this. In Edit>Peferences>Applications, I have one apt and apturl. How does one get rid of the apt...

That's one thing I don't like about about:config, it doesn't let you remove a pref that you may have created in error. Once created it will only let you modify them not delete them. If you have a pref you created by mistake you can manually edit the prefs.js file to remove it. You do that by shuttin...

I think I have it working now in Firefox, I created two additional network.protocol-handler boolean prefs in about:config
network.protocol-handler.expose.apt;true
network.protocol-handler.expose.apt+http;true
