View Full Version : [kubuntu] incomplete install apturl

June 23rd, 2009, 07:43 PM
i was installing apturl using this command in the terminal

"sudo apt-get install apturl"

all was well, when my net stopped working mid-way. since i'm new to linux, i've no clue what to do now. should i re-install it again using that command or is there any alternative command by which i can complete the incomplete install?

thank you.

Just try reinstalling it. Although I think that in the Ubuntu firefox modifications apturl is included. (Kubuntu has Firefox right? :P )

Try it with adding -f to the terminal command.

-f standing for fixing broken packages.

For more information: man apt-get and look for -f

sudo apt-get remove packagename
Where packagename is the name of the package (For example, gimp) you want to remove.

As for programs you've installed, that could be a problem as Ubuntu comes with well over a thousand programs (Or rather packages) installed.
