linux default iconFailed Ubuntu Package Installation Fix Publisher's description

This is the Preparing Packages Fix.

This is the Preparing Packages Fix.

After many hours manually going through the process of fixing bad installations, I automated the process.

The script fixes the \\\"preparing package\\\" error that can occur during software installations in Ubuntu.

I assume those who use it will have forced their installation to quit, leaving it in a state of disrepair.

The script will stop all DPKG processes, reconfigure DPKG, remove the broken package, and finally remove the lock on DPKG.

To install, copy this script into /home//.gnome2/nautilus-scripts

Replace with your own.

All .folders are hidden ones. The command line ctrl+h will reveal it.

The script requires the exact name of the failed package.

Please rate and leave your thoughts on the script.

What's New in This Release:

Compressed script so browser will download script, not just display in window.

Known Issues:

Sometimes the script will not run the package removal process.
Rerunning the script often fixes it.

System Requirements:

No special requirements.
Program Release Status:
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
