E: The package libreoffice6.2-debian-menus needs to be reinstalled, but I can’t find an archive for it

I keep getting this error message I’m on Ubuntu 18.04. I downloaded the latest stable deb version of LibreOffice 6.2.6 ran install and E: The package libreoffice6.2-debian-menus needs to be reinstalled, but I can’t find an archive for it. I’ve tried fixing broken packages, updating, complete removal using package manager but nothing has worked. My backup won’t even work now. Opening Synaptic I get this E: The package libreoffice6.2-debian-menus needs to be reinstalled, but I can’t find an archive for it. E: Internal error opening cache (1). Please report. Then Package manager shuts down

What’s the Minimum Amount of Security Your Website Needs?

Have you checked that your website is secure even if you think your site is too small for the hackers to bother with?

Quote:

over half (54%) of the businesses surveyed for the 2018 State of SMB Cybersecurity report believe they’re too small to be a target for hackers. But the data paints a different picture:

  • 67% of small- and medium-sized businesses were attacked in 2018;
  • 82% of those attacked had antivirus software installed on their systems;
  • 72% had intrusion detection systems in place.

Wine .exe needs access to shared folder on network

I previously used a Ubuntu computer for DATA which was accessed/edited by a LAN full of Win7 computers – no problem. Now I’m considering replacing Win7 computers with Bionic Beaver run computers. I can get the individual linux computers to run a Wine .exe and access local data, but I’ve been unable to get the Wine .exe to access DATA on a shared linux computer. The DATA computer folder is available via Files/Other_Locations, but I can’t figure out how to access it via the Wine .exe. Is there a mapping, mounting, or some other technique that I need to learn?

I’m writing an application that needs to log error/ exception messages but should still continue execution if it not a fatal error

I’m writing an application that needs to log error/ exception messages but should still continue execution if the error is not a fatal error. I was thinking of making a method that returns a Task but calling this method as a fire and forget and not wait for response from the method. What is the recommendation, is this a good approach?

new linux user needs help please

I’m coming from Windows 10 and I’m a very new Linux user so please don’t judge me too harshly. I’m an MIS major and an expert Windows user but this is all still very new to me. I need some help installing programs. One of the most important programs I use is a multi-messaging/multi-email program. On Windows, I was using Shift and I’m a paid user. I love the program and I want to use it on Linux. When I download the program, it comes in a zip file. I have no problem unzipping the file and running it. It runs fine from the unzipped folder. But how do I INSTALL it? It doesn’t come with a configure file to install, nor any readme or documentation. Do I just copy the folder to my desktop and run it from there? Will it auto-update like on Windows if I do this? Maybe I’m just a Linux noob, but it doesn’t seem right to me that a program doesn’t install. Another software like Shift that I’m looking at is a free one called Station. It comes in an AppImage format. Again, I can’t figure out how to install it. It just runs from that file. I really need to learn Linux as I’m an MIS major and it may come in handy in my career. So, can someone please help me and tell me what I do with these files/folders to INSTALL them? Or if they just plain won’t install, where should I put the folders? I have included links below to the Shift and the Station programs. I would really appreciate some help here. Thanks.

PS – Are there any multi-messaging/multi-email programs for Linux that are better than these 2?

Understand if user needs an undo and redo button always visible on the UI

So we have an app where users can undo or redo their changes using the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl + Z and Ctrl + Shift + Z. There is no button available on the UI for them to do this. Only the keyboard shortcut.

What we need to know is if the users are having trouble undo-ing and redo-ing their work. The app has been live for awhile now and so far none of the users have complained about not being able to undo/redo an action.

From our tracking data, we can only tell how many times the shortcut keys have been used and the number of total sessions during a time period. The number of times the shortcut keys are used is low.

What I want to ask is, what data do I need and how do I analyze if:

  1. Users are able to undo/redo their actions when they need to
  2. Users are unable undo/redo and just go on because they think it’s not a feature
  3. The low number of the shortcut key usage is because users don’t use undo/redo that frequently.
  4. The low number of shortcut key usage is because they don’t know undo/redo is there.

Is there a standard for vibration pattern when a mobile device failed to send an alert that the user needs help?

I’ve been looking for any standards around haptic feedback of a mobile device when it tries to send out an alert for security but failed. I haven’t found any clear answers so hoping I’ll get some guidance here. 🙂

So the app I’m designing is for the security of the user that when they find themselves in a threatening or dangerous situation, they will call for help by pressing a button on the device. But if the device couldn’t send the alert for some reason, the user should be made known that the device cant help you, it failed to send the alert.

I have checked a similar answer saying the distress signals are sent in sets of three, but this is not a distress signal, it’s a feedback that the distress signal could not be sent. Any recommendations?
