Installing AUTO-07P on Ubuntu 18.04

I am trying to install the numerical continuation software AUTO-07P on a new installation of Ubuntu 18.04.

After installing all the required packages I had to copy .bashrc to the home folder, and then to add the line

source $  HOME/auto/07p/cmds/auto.env 

at the end of the .bashrc file. However, I got the following error message:

setenv: command not found bash: /home/ohm18/auto/07p/cmds/auto.env: line 5: syntax error near unexpected token `(' bash: /home/ohm18/auto/07p/cmds/auto.env: line 5: `set    path=($  AUTO_DIR/cmds $  AUTO_DIR/bin  $  path)' 

How can I fix this problem?

Cant change backlights after installing nvidiia driver

I am on Ubuntu 18.04.I have gone through an extensive search all night, but couldnt get anything fruitful. Before you tag the question as a duplicate, I firmly urge you to read throughly. My problem is, I can not change my backlight using the GUI slider. I have a system without external unit (hd graphics etc) with only GTX-1070. As I found in some forums (here included), I need to install the latest drivers. I did change to nvidia drivers from xorg ones. Now I cant even see the slider for backlight.

Note: I encountered a solution of an issue resembling mine (involving some changes in xorg.conf), but my gpu is GTX-1070 ,not Quadro.For the link of the solution: Backlight not working on Ubuntu 17.10, Lenovo P51, Xorg, NVIDIA Quadro M1200

Installing Miracle Cast on Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS

so this is asking how to make the Miracast app “Miraclecast” work on a Linux Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS system. I followed the instructions listed below:

 1. Go to https://github.com/albfan/miraclecast.  2. Download the entire source code, not just autogen.sh. You can do it by clicking the Clone or download button, and then Download as ZIP or directly at https://github.com/albfan/miraclecast/archive/master.zip.  3. Unzip the folder to get folder miraclecast-master and run:  cd miraclecast-master sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ubuntu-dev-tools autoconf libtool libudev-dev libsystemd-dev glib-2.0 libperl-dev libgtk2.0-dev libreadline-dev libtoolize; aclocal; autoconf sudo ./autogen.sh  4. Once ./autogen.sh is complete, run:  sudo ./configure sudo make sudo make install  

Followed these steps but had an error on:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-dev-tools autoconf libtool libudev-dev libsystemd-dev glib-2.0 libperl-dev libgtk2.0-dev libreadline-dev libtoolize; aclocal; autoconf

But got past it by adding a ; at the line break –

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-dev-tools autoconf libtool libudev-dev libsystemd-dev glib-2.0 libperl-dev libgtk2.0-dev libreadline-dev; libtoolize; aclocal; autoconf

Then finished the steps and… Nothing…

Or maybe I’m missing something???

Please help!

Thank you for your time in advance!

Blank screen after installing ubuntu on new ASUS Zenbook with NVIDIA card

I have a new ASUS Zenboo 14 with NVDIA card.

After a correct UBUNTU 19.04 installation, but only using the “safe graphics” mode, I am not able to open the OS. In fact, after booting, I see only the blank screen.

I tried to fix the issue with some guideline, such as http://kawahara.ca/how-to-fix-a-blank-login-screen-on-a-ubuntu-laptop-with-nvidia-drivers/ but I can’t even open the terminal.

Do you know how it can be fixed?

problem installing Jupyter Notebook on Mac

I’ve literally tried everything and read every previous post about this.

First I tried installing Anaconda, and tried to run Jupiter and it said command not found.

Then I tried

pip install Jupyter 

And I got a long error…

Then I tried

pip install --user jupyter 

which did not throw any errors, but still when I tried to run Jupyter ntoebook I still got

-bash: jupyter: command not found 

The other weird thing is that I seem to be completely unable to update python from 2.7 to 3, this is a separate issue which I am not seeking an answer for here, though they are potentially related?

Thanks for any help!!

php7.0-zip not installing the package

While composer install I’m getting error

magento/product-community-edition 2.1.10 requires ext-zip * -> the requested PHP extension zip is missing from your system.

So I’m installing the zip extention using:

sudo apt-get install php7.0-zip

I’m getting below error:

The following packages have unmet dependencies: php7.0-zip : Depends: php7.0-common (= 7.0.4-7ubuntu2) but 7.0.18-1+deb.sury.org~xenial+1 is to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages. 

My PHP version is: PHP 7.0.18-1+deb.sury.org~xenial+1 (cli)

I have followed below url to fix this but no luck..
