comment How do you use variables with values containing spaces in a Z-shell (zsh) script command?
It seems that I can just do ${warnings} and the array gets expanded into 3 separate strings and the command works.

Why doesn't putting quotes around ${warnings[@]/#/w} recreate the problem - that is a string with spaces getting passed to the shell?

Thanks! I guess you figured out I was using the Z-shell. I just found out that it worked the string way with bash (tried in response to question above).

@Gilles I was using the z-shell. I just checked and the problem does not exist when run with bash.

I am experiencing the same situation with Ubuntu 14.04. In my case it freezes after login without me first booting with (recovery mode) and then doing the "continue normal boot" selection.

I deleted this line /usr/share/gnome-background-properties/linuxmint-lisa.xml from this file /var/lib/dpkg/info/mint-artwork-kde.list . However, apt-get install -f is still not happy and still complaining about lisa. EDIT: I removed all the lines with lisa in them and now install -f gives a different error, in fact it refers to it as a Traceback. Guess Mate and KDE don't play well together. Or Mate and Mint.

KDE is my primary desktop. So I can do the second solution with no serious impact to KDE usage?
