Firefox update issue

MR ZenWiz
I don't know if this is actually a problem or not.

Running an update (sudo apt-get dist-upgrade) on Xubuntu 16.04, I got
these messages during the update, but everything appears to be
installed and working.  Just wondering what these mean:

Preparing to unpack .../firefox_51.0.1+build2-0ubuntu0.16.04.2_amd64.deb ...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/lsb_release", line 25, in <module>
    import lsb_release
ImportError: No module named 'lsb_release'
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/lsb_release", line 25, in <module>
    import lsb_release
ImportError: No module named 'lsb_release'
/var/lib/dpkg/tmp.ci/preinst: 61: [: Illegal number:

???

Thanks.
MR

My Firefox update on 16.04 using Software Updater showed no warnings.

Have you been fiddling with python versions? Googling for
ImportError: No module named 'lsb_release'
suggests this may be a python issue.

looks like you dont have lsb-release installed ...

sudo apt install ubuntu-minimal

which you should always have installed on every (X,K,L,*)ubuntu will
pull it in.

seems also like there is a bug in the firefox postinst script that does
not catch the missing lsb_release command or a missing dependency of
firefox on the lsb-release package ... you should file that one on
launchpad ...

Looks right - see below:

admar@marbase:~/Downloads $ locate lsb_release
/usr/bin/lsb_release
/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/lsb_release.py
/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/lsb_release.pyc
/usr/share/man/man1/lsb_release.1.gz
/usr/share/pyshared/lsb_release.py

admar@marbase:~/Downloads $ lsb_release
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/lsb_release", line 25, in <module>
    import lsb_release
ImportError: No module named 'lsb_release'

admar@marbase:~/Downloads $ file /usr/bin/lsb_release
/usr/bin/lsb_release: Python script, ASCII text executable

admar@marbase:~/Downloads $ python --version
Python 2.7.12
admar@marbase:~/Downloads $ python3 --version
Python 3.5.2

It appears that the python3 version of lsb_release.py is missing.  I
tried various combinations of apt-get and synaptic to fix this, but
there doesn't seem to be one.


There's also this, which I confess I don't completely follow:

Yes, I think you are right. Did you try re-installing lsb-release
sudo apt install --reinstall lsb-release
or something similar.

FWIW on Mint18.1 I have it.

jfb@jims-mint18 ~ $ locate lsb_release.py
/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/lsb_release.py
/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/lsb_release.pyc
/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/lsb_release.py
/usr/share/pyshared/lsb_release.py
jfb@jims-mint18 ~ $

Looking at the timestamps etc, they seem to be identical and it should
be comparable with Python3 as it has this line:

# Python3-compatible print() function
from __future__ import print_function

so maybe you could just copy the one from 2.7 to python 3.

There is no lsb_release package and I'm not sure which package it's in
- what's the best way to find it?

I know, I should know this...

Doesn't seem to work:

admar@marbase:~/Downloads $ sudo ln
/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/lsb_release.py
/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/
admar@marbase:~/Downloads $ lsb_release

admar@marbase:~/Downloads $ sudo ln
/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/lsb_release.pyc
/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages

No LSB modules are available.

admar@marbase:~/Downloads $ ll /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/lsb_release.py*

I also tried making a backup of the lsb_release script and modifying
it to use python, instead of python3 and it gets the same error as the
original, plus another quirk:

I'm getting a little out of my depth here, but I had a look at them with
Nemo and it says the type = Link to Text.  Looking at their properties I
see they both point to :

Link taget: ../../../share/pyshared/lsb_release.py

Maybe this will be helpful for you.

Odd the way
sudo apt-cache show lsb-release
worked for you if there is no such package.
Hint, the devil is in the detail :)

synaptic has a search that allows you to enter part of a package name
and will show you matches.

True, but I actually looked for lsb_release (not lsb-release).

However:

So that now works, but I'm not sure how that applies to my FF install,
which is up and running (though it won't play embedded MP3 links).  I
reinstalled FF after the above and it still won't play the links.  I
have to use Chrome for this.

Probably not a suitable topic for this list....

Thanks.

Set Start Workspace

Hi all, 

I changed my Workspace (or better Viewpoort) setup from 2x2 Viewports
to 5 Viewports in a row. Now I want to set the middle Viewport as the
default one. How do I do that? 

Thanks
