Re: I keep gettting "broken packages"error, but have no broken pkgs

My advice is to wait at least a day more for more advice before reinstalling (I'm assuming you don't have a snapshot or other system backup). In a few more hours that's when many of the more capable Debian and apt users start to visit the forum. Your install is pretty new, about a month old, so mayb...

Re: Can we get a "NEWBIE" section

Fewer letters, though.

There is a limit on number of letters allowed in the thread title field so if you want to be as descriptive as possible, every letter counts! ;-P

It would help us to help you if you copy and paste the text output here in your thread, within the " < / >" tags that you see in the message toolbar above the text window. You can try installing the packages you want again, from terminal, and then select and copy the text in the terminal to paste he...

Re: Duplicated Entries on Grub Screen

I read the thread title and immediately thought, "must be grub-customiser at fault" before I even opened the thread.

Thank you. The printer could also connects driverlessly too. No need to configure it....
Surely that would be hard to implement for every single printer manufacturer and so many models?

Re: Sudo apt update/install not working

You could open synaptic, go to settings >> repositories, and for all the enabled Debian repos, replace "sg" with"hk".

Then reload .
