View Full Version : [ubuntu] Update Manager ?

March 29th, 2009, 04:15 AM
I updated compiz
now in update manager this -> compiz-fusion-plugins-extra <- was not able to be installed -> I get this ->

Upgrade manager error
E: /var/cache/apt/archives/compiz-fusion-plugins-extra_0.7.6-0ubuntu1~ppa1_i386.deb: trying to overwrite `/usr/lib/compiz/libwallpaper.so', which is also in package compiz-fusion-plugins-unofficial

My question is how to get - compiz-fusion-plugins-extra - out of the update manager so it will quit trying to install the plugins

You could try to force the overwrite. Open a terminal (Applications>Accessories>Terminal)
and type

cd /var/cache/apt/archives
sudo dpkg --force-overwrite --install compiz-fusion-plugins-extra_0.7.6-0ubuntu1~ppa1_i386.deb
