Three Linux Packages
KeePassX Screen Shot
The first package I installed was the KeePassX 0.2.2-3. I attempted to install it within the KDE environment and it failed, stating that there were unresolved dependencies. Unfortunately, I didn't write them down, so I don't remember what they were.
The next thing I did was to modify the /etc/apt/sources.list file to include these statements at the end of the file…
- deb http://mirror.pnl.gov/ubuntu hardy main universe
- deb-src http://mirror.pnl.gov/ubuntu hardy main universe
These lines allow the apt-get update and install commands to use this source for updating and installing packages. Then I used theses commands…
- Sudo apt-get update
- Sudo apt-get install keepassx
The later command reported another error and suggested that I run the “sudo apt-get –f install” which I did. This process went ahead and installed the KeePassX program. Then I ran “sudo apt-get autoremove” to get rid of extra unnecessary stuff that was no longer needed. Finally, I opened the KDE using startx and found the program installed.
Ksysguard Screen Shot
This package was already installed on my system when I went to install it so I did not attempt to re-install it. Here is a screenshot...
Sbackup Screen Shot
The third package I felt would be appropriate for a system administrator to have at his/her disposal, is a backup utility for performing regular scheduled backups of critical files. It appears that Sbackup (Simple Backup) was not already installed so I went back to the command mode (I'm not sure what demonic beast possessed me to do that), a0 0nd then I proceeded to install sbackup using...
sudo apt-get install sbackup
A bunch of crap flew past my eyes, and next thing you know, it was done. I went back into the KDE using startx and voilà, it was there.
