Instead of trying to install gfortran you should try gcc instead. gcc install comes with gfortran. This is available from homebrew or MacPorts. Another method is to install pre-compiled binaries from here. Select the version based on your Mac OS version and you get an apple style loader. A .dmg file ready to load on your mac.

It looks like your upgrade from 16.04 to 18.04 didn’t finish properly, and it left your repository configuration mostly commented out.

Here is your example - Notepadqq - installed to Debian 10.0.0 Buster. Although Ubuntu-oriented, in fact the official notepadqq PPA repository does contain .deb files! (I chose Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic from the technical details dropdown.) Download both of the following .deb files: http://ppa.launchpad.net/notepadqq-team/notepadqq/ubuntu/pool/main/n/notepadqq/...

It does not start on Fedora 30 due XDG_SESSION_TYPE=wayland. So, change /usr/bin/gufw to: c_user=$(whoami) pkexec gufw-pkexec $c_user xhost si:localuser:root Also check /usr/bin/gufw-pkexec for the correct location of "gufw.py" Mine is like this one: LOCATIONS=( "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gufw/gufw.py" "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gufw/gufw....

I suspect there are things to polish with the new .local directory structure in Ubuntu and how applications use it. I would recommend you to repeat the command without the --user parameter from the user console (If --user is used the dependencies are not later correctly found): python3 -m pip install Electrum-3.3.8.tar.gz It will be quick as all packages ...

I don't know what character you're typing for - but it's the wrong one. You should be using a simple minus/hyphen/dash character but you seem to be using a longer dash of some sort: –t incorrect -t correct On my UK keyboard it's the key between 0 and =, used without shift.

I solved this by removing the virtualbox-host-modules package recursively, which also gets rid of the other package. You can do so by running: sudo pacman -Rcs virtualbox-host-modules Then, reinstall the package: sudo pacman -Syu virtualbox-host-modules Doing a sudo modprobe -a vboxsf confirmed that this worked for me.
