View Full Version : [ubuntu] Possible to reinstall 12.10 from command line?

December 1st, 2012, 08:01 PM
Flash stopped working on certain sites. I tried everything. I installed mint 14 on another drive and it works fine and thats based on 12.10 so I want to re install 12.10 from terminal but I cant find any instructions as I wont be upgrading so the sudo apt-get install distro upgrade .

Anyone know how to do this?

I don't think re-installing the desktop will help with flash but if want to, attempt this first.
sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop

(Option 2)This is very slow !!!!
sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh -a

since this command would take a lot of time to process (~1 hour) depending on your hardware in case you have a minor dependency problem you can fix it via.
sudo apt-get install -f
