Problem installing f.lux elementary os loki

Fri, 2017-07-21 05:07

I'm getting this error and I'm tried apt-get update, apt-get install -f, installing the appindicator, but nothing resolved the problem.

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies: fluxgui : Depends: python-appindicator (>= 0.0.19) but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I really don't know what it is :c

Thanks for the help

Help, I accidentally bought a WYSE thin client desktop

Fri, 2017-07-21 02:35

So long story short my girlfriend bought me a computer for xmas. Problem is she accidentally purchased a Dell W11B WYSE thin-client desktop.

We intended to return it but alas, it sat in my closet for 7 months.

Now I'm curious, I'm not completely useless with computers; but I have no idea how I might go about this.

I would like to convert the computer to Linux (don't want to pay for Windows). Any tips or resources on how to do this? I've done some browsing on the web but haven't really found any helpful advice.

I have no idea if this is even possible, but if it is, any help is appreciated

For the record, AMD FX and Opteron series processors do NOT contain PSP

Fri, 2017-07-21 02:18

Just found this footnote at the bottom of

AMD Secure Processor (formerly “Platform Security Processor” or “PSP”) is a dedicated processor that features ARM TrustZone® technology, along with a software-based Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) designed to enable third-party trusted applications. AMD Secure Processor is a hardware-based technology which enables secure boot up from BIOS level into the TEE. Trusted third-party applications are able to leverage industry-standard APIs to take advantage of the TEE’s secure execution environment. Not all applications utilize the TEE’s security features. AMD Secure Processor is currently only available on select AMD A-Series and AMD E-Series APUs.

So basically PSP is only embedded in AMD's low-end processors (atom/i3 tier). Looks like PSP didn't affect most of us AMD users anyway. PARTYYYYY!!!

Arch Anywhere is an amazingly quick customizable Arch installer

Thu, 2017-07-20 17:50

I used arch anywhere to get my new system up and running quickly. It is really nice and helped me to get a running system up smoother than my last install. One of my biggest barriers was how hard the install was, and though I've done it, it was a massive pain and I wasn't a fan of it.

Big props to the people who wrote it. Now I can be one of the elite arch snobs and look down on my former ubuntu brethren.
