I would go to Ubuntu software center uninstall it and use Ubuntu tweak to clean any renaming software then reinstall with all the add-ons if you already done this still uninstall and use the synaptic packge manager to install my real advise is to remove it anyway you dont need it. its a security engine, the application provides alerts from a Snort ids system

In the file, search for the line (probably 34th):

cd is for change directory

I truly hope that I covered everything in it, I think I did though.

How to install package manager in ubuntu?


A package manager is a program that installs and uninstalls software, and keeps track of all the components each piece of software needs.

Dpkg is the Ubuntu package manager dpkg is a medium-level tool to install, build, remove and manage Ubuntu packages. The primary and more user-friendly front-end for dpkg is dselect.dpkg itself is controlled entirely via command line parameters,which consist of exactly one action and zero or more options. The action-parameter tells dpkg what to do and options control the behavior of the action in some way.
Now we will see all the available commands for dpkg with examples
1) Install a package
Syntax
dpkg -i <.deb file name>
Example
dpkg -i avg71flm_r28-1_i386.deb
2) Install all packages recursively from a directory
Syntax
dpkg -R
Example
dpkg -R /usr/local/src
3) Unpack the package, but don’t configure it.
Syntax
dpkg --unpack package_file
If you use -R option is specified, package_file must refer to a directory instead.
Example
dpkg --unpack avg71flm_r28-1_i386.deb
4) Reconfigure an unpacked package
Syntax
dpkg --configure package
If -a is given instead of package, all unpacked but uncon-figured packages are configured.
Example
dpkg --configure avg71flm_r28-1_i386.deb
5) Remove an installed package except configuration files
Syntax
dpkg -r
Example
dpkg -r avg71flm_r28-1_i386.deb
6) Remove an installed package including configuration files
Syntax
dpkg -P
If you use -a is given instead of a package name, then all packages unpacked, but marked to be removed or purged in file /var/lib/dpkg/status, are removed or purged, respectively.
Example
dpkg -P avg71flm
7) Replace available packages info
Syntax
dpkg --update-avail <Packages-file>
With this option old information is replaced with the information in the Packages-file.
icon_cool.gif Merge with info from file
Syntax
dpkg --merge-avail <Packages-file>
With this option old informa-tion is combined with information from Packages-file.
The Packages-file distributed with Debian is simply named Packages.dpkg keeps its record of available packages in /var/lib/dpkg/available.
9) Update dpkg and dselect’s idea of which packages are available with information from the package pack-age_file.
Syntax
dpkg -A package_file
10) Forget about uninstalled unavailable packages.
Syntax
dpkg --forget-old-unavail
11) Erase the existing information about what packages are available.
Syntax
dpkg --clear-avail
12) Searches for packages that have been installed only partially on your system.
Syntax
dpkg -C
13) Compare Package versions version numbers
Syntax
dpkg --compare-versions ver1 op ver2
14) Display a brief help message.
Syntax
dpkg --help
15) Display dpkg licence.
Syntax
dpkg --licence (or) dpkg --license
16) Display dpkg version information.
Syntax
dpkg --version
17) Build a deb package.
Syntax
dpkg -b directory [filename]
18) List contents of a deb package.
Syntax
dpkg -c filename
19) Show information about a package.
Syntax
dpkg -I filename [control-file]
20) List packages matching given pattern.
Syntax
dpkg -l package-name-pattern
Example
dpkg -l vim
21) List all installed packages, along with package version and short description
Syntax
dpkg -l
22) Report status of specified package.
Syntax
dpkg -s package-name
Example
dpkg -s ssh
23) List files installed to your system from package.
Syntax
dpkg -L package-Name
Example
dpkg -L nagios2
24) Search for a filename from installed packages.
Syntax
dpkg -S filename-search-pattern
Example
dpkg -S /sbin/ifconfig
25) Display details about package
Syntax
dpkg -p package-name
Example
dpkg -p nagios2

Please check if this is any help for you.

Regards.

Well I don't know whether your objective is to study the commands or just to play DVD. If the objective is to play DVD, VLC player or Mplayer or any number of other players can be used. The install directly from software selection use package manager. If the objective is to study, I think debhelper and fakeroot is essential.

sudo apt-get install build-essential debhelper fakeroot

and try. To be honest, I use Ubuntu but I am not a great expert in Terminal. May be a better idea to play DVD is to add medibuntu repository also in the software source. Good luck

Ubuntu Troubleshooting


One of the most common issues people have after getting their codecs installed into Ubuntu, is the sad discovery that Ubuntu won’t play Avi files from inside of your Firefox browser. Well, there is a fairly simple fix for this - lose GStreamer and switch to Xine.

You do this from Synaptic located from System, Administration in Ubuntu. In the search box for the application, just do a query for totem-xine. Once it comes up, select (double click) and then allow the uninstallation of totem-gstreamer. It’s simple!

Hello there.

Nice to see more people using Linux and Ubuntu. For information on how to share your Ubuntu folder to linux, over file sharing click here

You basically only need to right click the folder you want to share, in Ubuntu, then enable sharing and when prompted to install services, tick the box called 'Install Windows network support'

Hope this helps.
