Re: MX 17 Repository: The QuteBrowser Thread

You can download and install libqtwebkit5 from here if the NZ repo still has trouble. Most users will only need the lib package, but KDE users might also need to upgrade the qml-module package at the same time.

Re: mx-packageinstaller (MX15/16) unmet dependency -- xdg-desktop-portal-gtk

Just add this to the Depends:

Code: Select all

flatpack (<< 1.0) | xdg-desktop-portal-gtk
Keep the flatpak dependency earlier in the list. This way, the xdg package only gets installed if flatpak is 1.0 or greater, which I'm guessing is the version where some packages started needing it.

Re: mx-packageinstaller (MX15/16) unmet dependency -- xdg-desktop-portal-gtk

I'm pretty sure that it can be handled with alternative depends based on the flatpak version. Let me take a look at the debian folder.

In any case, building different versions for MX 15, MX 17, or even a Buster base becomes really easy with a pbuilder setup...

Re: Update request: Fish shell

OK, MX 17 and 15/16 packages are done and uploading. MX 17's were easy, but the ones based on Jessie required me to have it build its own internal pcre2, since libpcre2-dev isn't available for Jessie. The packages are available here early: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1fskT8O3F2Dy5h2Tmt2Rr2Utkgr...

Re: Update request: Fish shell

2.7.1 is in Debian testing, so I'll take a swing at backporting it.

Re: mx-packageinstaller (MX15/16) unmet dependency -- xdg-desktop-portal-gtk

I wonder if it's possible to do some fiddling with alternative dependencies so it only needs that on the MX 17 platform. Some Debian packages can generate dependencies on the fly during the build depending on the distro release, openjdk packages for example, but that takes a pretty complicated setup...

Re: Need Help in Upgrading Processor

You should be able to speed up video considerably by adding a compatible discrete video card. The older ones that you'll probably have to use might not be supported by a proprietary driver any longer, but the free drivers should support them. OK, debaters report to the starting line! AMD vs Nvidia c...

Re: MX 17 Repository: The qBittorrent Thread

Do you still have the 4.1.2 deb in /var/cache/apt/archives? It's a single deb, so you should be to downgrade to it with gdebi. If that restores the functionality, we'll go back to 4.1.2.

If you don't have it, I still have debs here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=17ID_K ... 9H6Jwy8cXZ

Re: MX 17 Repository: The qBittorrent Thread

I'm having problems with this package as well. The search tab functions and the window populates, but when the download button is clicked on, the download window pops up and it hangs on retrieving the metadata. Nothing populates in the Transfer tab. If I click on another source in the search tab, a...
