For sound problems this thread is better:
Hi Im MPM,
I have ubuntu studio 11.10 and upgraded and i have a very specific problem with kde-runtime-data which will not install and gives the error:
E: /var/cache/apt/archives/kde-runtime-data_4%3a4.7.4-0ubuntu0.1_all.deb: short read on buffer copy for backend dpkg-deb during ./usr/share/kde4/services/searchproviders/beolingus.desktop'
It does not matter what I do it wont install. All other KDE dependencies are OK it is just this file and the kde-runtime appear as broken?? Any advice will be appreciated.
Ubuntu 14.04LTS Intel Q9650 SLB8W @ 3.0GHz :: 8 GByte RAM
640 GBytes of discs :: DVD burner :: BluRay burner
Mixed ethernet, WiFi and CPL networking :: 2 TByte NAS :: Network Printing :: Raspbian and MacOS
Here's what I have install that is related:
Note that the packages above after the "-" are 3 packages that are a part of kde-runtime... so when you install kde-runtime, the other 3 packages are installed.
What I notice on packages that don't want to install, I first check what the install log says to see what the dependencies are. Sometimes, it's not a dependency problem, but rather a conflict with a package that is already installed.

After more than 100.000 page views this thread has served its purpose. Many of the posts are (fortunately) obsolete now, since Buntu has evolved quite a bit.
Thanks for posting, everybody.
The thread is closed, but a new one is available.
