    If any of you looked at the link i sent regarding the tutorial to debrick my hp touchpad, you will see ive got as far as running thos command, plus the:
    22. Run "script" (this will capture the output of the tpdebrick process)
    23. Run "sudo ./tpdebrick XX" (where XX is the size of the TP: 16, 32 or 64)

    but then i get those errors above

    how do i install those missing prgrams please?
    I've looked on google but yet again as itas linux and cant do anything the easy way, its more confusing than helpful.

    ''I had this issue as well. Open software manager or what ever it is and go edit and then software sources. The second check box that ends in "universe" needs to be checked. Then run "sudo apt-get update" and then "apt-get install dfu-util" and try step 5 again. Also you'll want to make sure your using a 64 bit version of Ubuntu for a later step.''

    how do i open software manager?

    and i cant even do this on a 32 bit machien then?

    ''apt-get install dfu-util
    E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: Permission denied)
    E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?''

    I CANT do anything else unless you advise me.
    I dont understand what part of those links i am even supposed to look at
    you cant expect a common person to read through all that lunacy jusy to install something

    if you do really expect me to study all that , please re confirm and i will stop even asking for help here
    its far to complicerted even with help if thats the case

    you need to run apt-get install with root privilege
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install dfu-util

    Are you running this from the terminal? If so, you might have better results if you use:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install dfu-util
    You are likely to get asked for your password. Don't worry if your password doesn't show when you type it, this is a normal security precaution.

    I've closed the thread.

    You've done little but complain in your threads.

    Linux is not windows.

    Everyone here is a volunteer - everyone - there are people wanting help who do not constantly whine about it being easier on windows, if windows is easier for you then use that.
