    Re: Trusty GNOME Classic & Flashback sessions

    One question though. How do you prevent it from upgrading back to the 2.39.1 version.
    After setting it back to 2.38.1, this is waiting:

    Code:
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    Calculating upgrade... Done
    The following packages will be upgraded:
      libglib2.0-0 libglib2.0-bin libglib2.0-data libglib2.0-doc libnautilus-extension1a nautilus nautilus-data
    7 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    Need to get 3,206 kB of archives.
    After this operation, 937 kB of additional disk space will be used.
    Do you want to continue? [Y/n]
    Code:
    cavsfan@cavsfan-MS-7529:~$ apt-cache policy libglib2.0-0
    libglib2.0-0:
      Installed: 2.38.1-1
      Candidate: 2.39.1-0ubuntu2
      Version table:
         2.39.1-0ubuntu2 0
            500 http://ubuntu.wikimedia.org/ubuntu/ trusty/main amd64 Packages

    Never mind I may have stumbled upon the answer:

    Using apt
    you can hold a package using
    sudo apt-mark hold package_name
    and remove the hold with
    sudo apt-mark unhold package_name

    Code:
    cavsfan@cavsfan-MS-7529:~$ sudo apt-mark hold libglib2.0-0
    [sudo] password for cavsfan: 
    libglib2.0-0 set on hold.
    cavsfan@cavsfan-MS-7529:~$ sudo apt-mark hold libglib2.0-bin
    libglib2.0-bin set on hold.
    cavsfan@cavsfan-MS-7529:~$ sudo apt-mark hold libglib2.0-data
    libglib2.0-data set on hold.
    cavsfan@cavsfan-MS-7529:~$ sudo apt-mark hold libglib2.0-doc
    libglib2.0-doc set on hold.

    To see what packages you can either search libglib2 in synaptic or this in terminal, look for 'Installed: 2.39.....'
    apt-cache policy libglib2.0*

    I checked it out in synaptic and it wants to remove several depends and other programs if one tries to use the >force Version option from Packages.

    Beware: hold (i.e. lock on package version) is not always transferable/honored between frontends (synaptic, aptiptude etc...) There was a detailed thread about that in which I've showed certain exceptions.

    I don't have a clue about where this goes from here but it sure did fix the problem. Trusty works in Flashback like a new one. mc4man helped the situation tremendously. I'll take my chances with this versus what I had before.

    But when the fix/upgrade comes in and the old libglib2.0-0 gets obsoleted and the depends also get upgraded then does not the kernel/OS look for the upgraded libglib and not finding it, it breaks the depends eventually? I'm just asking.

    I did not object to the solution to Your problem You've found.I've just wanted to caution You that Your lock could open if Yuo would use another fontend to try to upgrade. Since You do use only CLI and, probably, only the same frontend all the time, You're safe.

    I personally prefer just waiting for the fix to drop

    The more I tweak the less I end up knowing about actual existing bugs, and we are pre-alpha

    Re: Trusty GNOME Classic & Flashback sessions

    I have no idea what I'm doing lol. I just thought I would try mc4man's solution. Zika it's not my solution. Look back at post #149. I'm willing to admit that I'm not smart enough to come up with this solution.

    I just checked what is in the updates and there is a kernel and some other stuff. I guess I'll take the hold off those 4 and let it happen. I don't have the slightest clue as to what libglib is or does. I was just glad that I found mc4man's post and fix because it made it usable again. If it's still screwed up after these updates I'll probably repeat the fix from post #149. I still have the debs and the folder.

    So, here goes. *holds breath*

    At least you're having fun Explore away !!!! It's amazing how things get discovered when we do proceedures ie; as mac4man has suggested.
