For work, I need to get g++ working on my Ubuntu machine. However, because of the security and blocks, I can't download anything off synaptic. I was able to get gcc working by going to packages.ubuntu.com and downloading the required packages and installing them, which for some reason the network allows. The problem is, whenever I try to install g++ I keep getting dependencies which I cannot download. Often times, these dependences either have themselves as dependencies, or have a package that depends on THEM as dependencies (A requires B and B requires A) it sounds crazy, I know, but it is seriously driving me crazy. Also, the scree keeps flickering, which really does not help at all, but I'm hoping the tech guy who set up the computer can help fix that (I have a windows machine and a Linux machine hooked to the same monitor, to me it looks all fine. Plus the flicker gets worse when I have multiple windows open, so I'm not conviced its a hardware problem).
Also, to make matters even more interesting, I'm pretty sure the tech guy said I'm the only Linux machine in the office.
