    Re: Cannot open system settings

    I'd probably take a look at the status for the 3 mentioned packages in /var/lib/dpkg/status directly & see if they were at -
    Status: install ok installed
    (- setserial, keyboard-configuration, cups
    If not, then see if making them such had any effect.. (best to back up that /var/lib/dpkg/status first
    If already showing the above then maybe deleting those 3 entries entirely.

    Edit : if you have any doubts about doing the above then ask first. Also please backup that file before doing anything, no sense going from very bad to impossible..

    Do you happen to have aptitude installed?

    Re: Cannot open system settings

    @ mc4man; Thanks, outstanding observation as we are sure that some entries in "/var/lib/dpkg/status" are in an inconsistent state.

    @j88n; Comply with mc4man's advisements and we will carry on.

    a little help
    goes a long way

    Re: Cannot open system settings

    Sorry for the late reply! Thanks @mc4man for joining in to help. I opened /var/lib/status and searched for those three packages. The status is as follows:

    -setserial
    Code:
     
    Package: setserial

    Description: controls configuration of serial ports
     Set and/or report the configuration information associated with
     a serial port. This information includes what I/O port and which IRQ
     a particular serial port is using.
     .
     This version has a completely new approach to configuration, so if you
     have a setup other than the standard ttyS0 and 1, you will have to get
     your hands dirty.
     .
     By default, only COM1-4 are configured by the kernel, using IRQ 3 and 4.
     If you have other serial ports (such as an AST Fourport card), or
     if you have mapped the IRQs differently (perhaps COM3 and 4 to other
     IRQs to allow concurrent access with COM1 and 2) then you must have this
     package.

    Re: Cannot open system settings

    Since they look like they are all installed correct, I have run the command:

    Code:
    sudo cp status status.old
    to make a copy and am removing those three entries to see what happens.

    Re: Cannot open system settings

    I just ran "apt-get autoclean"

    Code:
    sean@Sean-Monster:/var/lib/dpkg$ sudo apt-get autocleanReading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    then "apt-get autoremove" to see what spit out... any ideas?

    Code:
    sean@Sean-Monster:/var/lib/dpkg$ sudo apt-get autoremoveReading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
     bluez-cups : Depends: cups but it is not installable
     console-setup : Depends: keyboard-configuration but it is not installable
     hplip : Depends: cups (>= 1.1.20) but it is not installable
     indicator-printers : Depends: cups (>= 1.5) but it is not installable
     lirc : Depends: setserial but it is not installable
     printer-driver-gutenprint : Depends: cups (>= 1.3.0) but it is not installable
     printer-driver-hpcups : Depends: cups but it is not installable
     xserver-xorg-core-lts-raring : Depends: keyboard-configuration but it is not installable
    E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.

    Re: Cannot open system settings

    j88n; Whohh !

    What a web we weave for our self, yeah now we have something to work with.
    Get:371 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal/main g++-4.7 amd64 4.7.2-2ubuntu1 [7,966 kB]
    xserver-xorg-core-lts-raring : Depends: keyboard-configuration but it is not installable
    cups:
    Version: 1.5.3-0ubuntu8
    hplip : Depends: cups (>= 1.1.20) but it is not installable
    indicator-printers : Depends: cups (>= 1.5) but it is not installable
    For starters, right off hand I would say we need to uninstall the hp printer driver(s), AND deal with some way to get "xserver-xorg-core-lts" downgraded back to the proper version for quantal.


    It is late my time, and my thinking has become impaired, will pick this one up at a later time.

    good work !

    Okay, good night!

    Let me know how I can go about uninstalling the drivers and doing the downgrade.

    Re: Cannot open system settings

    downgrading xserver-xorg-core shouldn't be that difficult but keep in mind -

    It depends on xserver-common, best to do 2 both at once (xserver-common is an all.deb, -core is arch specific
    There are 2 meta packages, xorg & xorg-server, just make sure they don't conflict (shouldn't be an issue, worst case they can be removed
    Once you start do not log out, restart or shutdown until you've squared this up or you not *may* be able to log in

    What you need can be found here, there 3 sources in quantal, release or updates probably best choices
    https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg-server

    Hopefully didn't pick up on any other 'core' packages from raring, may want to first check somehow..

    @j88n - You should wait for thoughts/directions from bashing-om,
