Uninstalled the fbreader, libzlcore-data and all its dependencies. Tried to re-install fbreader and it tells me there is a broken package

Yeah, that right. Stevo is repackaging and then we can reinstall.

We can help solve that problem if you would let us know the exact error message about the broken package...

I uninstalled fbreader, then went back through the 3 commands you posted, and it finally worked.

Code: Select all

Does it have menu entry and start from it? I think that version's binary in /usr/bin might be capitalized, too, something that's fixed in the 0.99.4-3 version I'm uploading. I did an upgrade to that OBS build and and aptitude had no issues doing it---but you want to uninstall the first 0.99.4-1mx15+1 build before the upgrade, it will probably have more issues...though I can test that too, now.

Yup, works fine from the Menu as "FBReader." Will now uninstall.

The fixed version is now in the test repo--the upgrade in apt-notifier worked smoothly in my case.

Installed and runs fine, and lower case works as command. Thanks.

EDIT: on main production machine, apt notifier greened up, install over previous went without a hitch.
