Ubuntu Software Center Not Working

Filed under
Ubuntu

Matt, I am pulling my hair out! I have tried everything short of re-installing Ubuntu to fix a problem I am having with the Ubuntu Software Center.

My problems are many, but let me go again list them. First of all, I am getting errors indicating that somehow I have broken packages. I have no idea how, but it seems that this is stopping me from being able to install software via apt. On top of that, and this one has me completely blown away…the software center is no longer allowing me to install software. What I mean by that is I click the install button for any application, and it does nothing. When I ran the software center in the terminal, it just gave me a weird error when I’d click on the install button.

Please help, this isn’t how I wanted to start off my week!

NVIDIA reveals GPUs for blade servers, Linux desktop support

VMworld 2015 NVIDIA has announced the second version of its Grid desktop virtualisation software, complete with a pair of GPUs for blade servers. NVIDIA is pitching GRID as a hardware offering tuned to the needs of graphically-demanding desktop virtualisation (VDI) workloads. If that sounds a bit exotic, consider environments like the resources industry, where on-site engineers need CAD and modelling tools, but miners are loathe to deploy desktops in the remote sites where stuff gets dug out of the ground. VDI works a treat in such spots. Read more
