    [ubuntu] Re: How to untar.gz and bz2 files easily in terminal

    Don't prepend sudo. You caused the directory to be created by root, and consequently lack write access to it.

    Now you need to do:


    sudo rm -r ~/Desktop/NAEV

    and re-run:

    I'm assuming you closed the terminal and opened another. By default, the terminal starts in ~/ (one directory above the desktop). To get back to the NAEV directory, you need to cd ~/Desktop/NAEV/

    Ugh, okay.

    I just fired up a VM. Getdeb's repo for 9.10 is missing packages, the 10.04 one isn't but I'm doubting packages from it would run on 9.10.

    So, here's what we'll do:

    Your repos are likely out of date. Run:

    So you haven't installed it, then.

    Run:


    sudo apt-get install naev naev-data

    ... and the game, along with the shortcut, will be installed.

    [ubuntu] Re: How to untar.gz and bz2 files easily in terminal

    So, the repository is enabled and you've presumably installed the package. Is the shortcut present in Applications -> Games?

    What happens if you try and run this?

    You need to install PlayDeb's package first - it sets up the repository (here). Once you've done that, you can install anything from PlayDeb.

    No, just XMPP/Google Talk. For AIM/Yahoo/MSN video and audio chat, I think you're out of luck on Linux at present.

    Yes. Edit ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml and change <titleLayout>'s value to something like IMCNDL.
