View Full Version : [xfce] [SOLVED] xfce install failed, lots of "failed" downloads

So I tried installing the "xubuntu-desktop" and all of it's lovely dependencies over Ubuntu 8.04, and man, did I get a lot of server failures. I tried it a second time, and it's still a no-go.

Anyone know of any other way I can get this to work?

I did not let Synaptic go ahead with the installation, as I would like my computer to work. And I have no idea how many of the failed items are essential for xfce.

Here's my Synaptic error log.

Go into System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager -> Settings -> Repositories and use the Main Server. Then, press reload and close down synaptic.

What happens when you run these two commands from a terminal now?


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop

I have downloaded xubuntu-desktop into 3 computers from the main server in the last week with no problems.

You can try to change the mirror server.

Using the main server helped. Thank You!
