I would have loved to have used Windows. I even bought a desktop loaded with Windows 7 to do so. But, Windows has insisted that I connect the computer to the internet, and has gradually increased its punitive responses to my failure to do so, disabling programs and making it almost wholly unusable, always with the demand that I connect to the internet, and register it. I have no internet. And, of course, I don't think it is any of their business whether or not I connect to the internet. I purchased, with good money, the computer with Windows 7. In my mind, I own it, they do not. They owe me a working operating system. They seem to have the idea that it is ok to induce me to pay money by promising me a computer with an operating operating system, but, once they get my hard earned cash, to hold my computer hostage and demand that I submit to a state of serfdom in their digital feudal world. I say they can go f**k themselves.

halherta, I'll give it a try and report back. Thanks.

Windows is arguably messier than Linux. Windows 10 forces you to accept massive updates that eat up your bandwidth and in many cases make your system worse, they almost bully you into creating an online account and using their app store, and violate your privacy in every which way.

Linux does non of that. It is stable, relatively easy to use (you can do everything via GUI), doesn't spy on you, gives you the choice of accepting updates when you want to. It just needs a bit if time to get used to. These days you can do almost everything on Linux. Unfortunately many sampled VST software companies are still suck in the 20th century mentality of its Windows/Mac or nothing.

You may have been ripped off.

The legitimate Windows 7 copies all have the "activate by the telephone" option. It is relatively painless and takes less than 5 minutes. Certainly no Internet connectivity is required.

As of now it is water under the bridge, too late to research the authenticity of the copy of the software bought several years ago.

It is much better to use 'apt' with an internet if possible. If this is a laptop, take it to a place with an internet connection, Use 'apt' to install packages is better as it automatically deals with any dependency issues

Oops. I accidentally submitted before ready, and was unable to finish the post before the 'edit' clock ran out. Here is the full post.

It appears that placing the p7zip package into the Home folder helped. At least Ubuntu found it and attempted to install it, I think. Here is the Terminal conversation from this try (in bold):

ralph@ralph-OptiPlex-755:~$ sudo dpkg -i p7zip-full_16.02+dfsg-6_amd64.deb
[sudo] password for ralph:
dpkg: error: cannot access archive 'p7zip-full_16.02+dfsg-6_amd64.deb': No such file or directory

p7zip-full is already the newest version (16.02+dfsg-6).
You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these.

E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
ralph@ralph-OptiPlex-755:~$ apt --fix-broken install
E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend - open (13: Permission denied)
E: Unable to acquire the dpkg frontend lock (/var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend), are you root?
ralph@ralph-OptiPlex-755:~$ sudo apt --fix broken install
E: Command line option --fix is not understood in combination with the other options
ralph@ralph-OptiPlex-755:~$


The first attempt went nowhere as I had not succeeded in getting the .deb file into the Home folder.

The second attempt, after getting the .deb file into the Home folder, looks like the computer recognized/found the .deb file, and attempted to install it.

I do not understand this sequence:

Preparing to unpack p7zip-full_16.02+dfsg-6_amd64.deb ...
Unpacking p7zip-full (16.02+dfsg-6) ...


In the eyes of Ubuntu, is "p7zip-full_16.02+dfsg-6_amd64.deb" the same thing as "p7zip-full" or "p7zip-full (16.02+dfsg-6)..."
In the first line it says it is preparing to upack the former, but, in the next line it attempts to unpack the latter.


The next sequence seems to suggest they are different:

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of p7zip-full:
p7zip-full depends on p7zip (= 16.02+dfsg-6); however:
Package p7zip is not installed.


This seems to "identify" the source of the failure, but, I do not understand what it is telling me.

The next and remaining attempts were just guesses by me in response to the results of the previous efforts.

Do you know of a good resource to help someone like myself understand and better navigate the Terminal commands? Back in the '80s, I successfully taught myself enough DOS commands to be able to add software such as Word Processors and Spreadsheets, and reasonably configure them. I think I need to similarly train myself in Linux/Ubuntu, as, I am committed to this course.

Thanks for your help.

Updates can be squelched with configuration (Windows 10 Pro) or by tweaking (Windows 10 Home). It's quite easy.

I was asked once by the machine to create a Windows account. Answer: No.
Yes, they have an app store. Do I use it? No. Not ever.
There has been no bullying.

As for eating up bandwidth ... I eat far far far far far more of that than Windows does. So there's no problem with Windows.

As for this ...

The fact that you can get around the Windows 10 defaults doesn't make them OK. It is bullying when the software that you purchased with your own money, keeps trying to co-erce you into buying more things, or to forego more of your privacy. And that's the stuff that we know about. God knows what else that OS does behind the scenes.

Pianoteq and Reaper both released Linux versions. Does that mean that they lack a business sense? More VST production companies will follow in the future. Linux makes a very good operating system for music production PCs/laptops.

You're running into dependency issues, which the package installer is capable of resolving on its own if you're connected to the internet (it just goes and find the dependencies as needed) but if you're not, then you have to obtain the dependency yourself.

A dependency is exactly what it says it is. A simple example is this: You're sitting on a chair right now. Maybe I want a chair, too.

$ pkg install chair
install failed. Dependency required: floor

$ pkg install floor
install failed. Dependency required: foundation

You can go down a fair-sized rabbit hole with dependencies that depend on other things, and those other things depending on something else and on and on. A package manager can resolve this for you automatically, so it can build a whole house with a single command:

$ pkg install chair
downloading dependencies: foundation, floor, roof, shingles...
installing chair
house constructed
done

But for this to work you need to give the package manager access to the materials (other packages) that are required. Plugging it into the internet says "here's the whole lumberyard". Your other option is to find each piece yourself and provide it on local media.

@Ralphiano
It seems that you are trying to install Debian's p7zip-full package on Ubuntu. This could work, but before installing 'p7zip-full' file, you'll need to install a file called p7zip_16.02+dfsg-6_amd64.deb which is a dependency. I know it's a little confusing. It would be so much easier to do this with an internet connection.

The NOT SO GOOD WAY
- Go to the bottom of this site
- Click on the "amd64" link and choose a mirror to download the p7zip (not p7zip-full) deb file.
- Move the p7zip_16.02+dfsg-6_amd64.deb to the home directory along with the p7zip-full
-Open a terminal window and type "sudo dpkg -i p7zip_16.02+dfsg-6_amd64.deb"
- If everything goes OK then type "sudo dpkg -i p7zip-full_16.02+dfsg-6_amd64.deb"
- It should now be installed

A MUCH BETTER ALTERNATIVE is to install the official ubuntu p7zip-full package which doesn't seem to have this dependency issue...Still depends on some libc libraries but these should be already installed by default (hopefully).

- Go to this site
- Click on the 'amd64' link and choose a mirror. Now you'll download the official ubuntu build of p7zip-full that doesn't have a dependency of the other p7zip
- Move the file downloaded file "p7zip-full_9.20.1~dfsg.1-4.2_amd64.deb" to the home directory
-Open a terminal and type: "sudo dpkg -i p7zip-full_9.20.1~dfsg.1-4.2_amd64.deb"
- It should now be installed

Let me know if this helps

Oops! The second link for the official ubuntu build of p7zip-full is for Ubuntu 16.04. If you have Ubuntu 18.10 installed go to this link instead

https://packages.ubuntu.com/cosmic/p7zip-full.

Or go to

https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=p7zip-full

to find the p7zip-full builds for every version if Ubuntu.

Sorry, rants are not facts.

1. I've never been coerced into buying anything from Microsoft.

2. When you use the term bullying to describe any attempt to sell you something (when a mere single-click "no" ends the attempt for keeps) ... I'd say you're being hypersensitive.
That's a widespread problem these days. frown

3. Aside from buying computers with Windows 10 (or 7 or XP), plus a couple of mouses ... I've never bought anything from Microsoft.
And I've never felt urged, compelled, or coerced in any way.

@MacMacMac As far as I'm concerned using words like "bullying and coercion" to describe how Microsoft Windows 10 treats its users is rather accurate. But we can agree to disagree. Besides you are the one who reacted to my comment by calling it a 'rant' and 'fiction'. It seems to me that you are the one who is hypersensitive.

But that's OK! You keep using Windows. I'm gonna keep on using Linux (with a bit of Windows for my sampled VSTs). And I'll concede that Windows is easier to use, especially for those that have been using it for a long time. But Linux is absolutely worth learning and using. And not just for music production.

I haven’t found anything Microsoft bully me to buy.

However, upgrades are by default mandatory. I can postpone them, but when one is loaded, the “Reboot” menu is changed by “Upgrade and reboot”. I can’t simply reboot or halt the system keeping the same version.

For a connected system, applying security update is useful, but Windows provides no way to get only them where Linux permits a minimal security update.

Using Linux because... well, just because you want to escape from Microsoft, and insisting on using it without being connected to the Internet, without a prior experience with Linux and knowledge in basic stuff like how a dependency manager works is an interesting exercise smile Good luck with that!

P.S. Instead of downloading the entire repository with all possible dependencies for 7zip and moving it back and forth between your connected computer and your Linux, why don't you just uncompress the 7z package on your other computer and them move the uncompressed files to your Linux?

Your comment really brings back memories. Years and years ago in another life, and long before there was even such a thing as "Linux", I was the Director of Platform Engineering for a large Unix company, and before that I was a Unix kernel engineer doing fun things like developing drivers for a new fiberoptic network hardware for a Unix variant for I/O channel controllers for a mainframe and the port to the Intel processor set for a brand new operating system some marketing genius decided to call "Solaris", of all things. laugh With so much Unix DNA in me, I guess one would expect me to be using Linux these days, eh? Nope. Life is too short. wink grin Give me my user-friendly OSes any day smile . Any nostalgia I feel for Unix I can rid myself for by launching a shell prompt in OSX grin

(Ok, not completely true - I am currently plotting a near-future dive into my nostalgic past by recreating a "Symbolics Lisp Machine" out of some little PC, and darn it to heck, but to do that, I'm going to need to install Ubuntu. urgh. crazy )

Solaris was great! And as a Java developer I loved it since SUN used to optimize Solaris and Java to run together really smoothly.

Anyway, I’ve always struggled with my memory. Even now I am the only dev in our team to use Git integration in the IDE rather than memorizing commands. Which is why I don’t like Linux much since it requires constant tweaking through the terminal despite what many people would try to convince you, speaking about how user friendly it is. BS! I prefer utilizing my limited memory for storing concepts rather than literals wink Seems it has worked so far throughout my career.

Linux is for servers, as was its Unix predecessor. Been there for over 30 years.
Each has its place.
I use both. I complain about neither.
