Hiero Outliner/Notetaker for Linux

#1 Post by Malanrich » Sun Aug 23, 2015 2:10 pm

Hiero is an outliner/notetaker that fills a real hole in Linux applications, but it only exists (so far) as an Ubuntu PPA. See details here:

I've inquired about getting a straight Debian version, and the developer has suggested that someone from our distro produce one using his directions. This is beyond my capacity, but it would be a great addition to antiX or MX. Is there a way that a conversion from PPA to Debian could be done?

Hope this is just a case of being careful

hiero 1.1 is now available in the Testing MEPIS 12 Community Repository (used for both M12 & MX-14).
This was a trivial rebuild from the ppa, no substantive changes required.

For those still concerned about mono, hiero brings in a number of mono dependencies.

I'm not too concerned about mono...I caught it once when I was a teenager...got over it in a couple of weeks. :happy:

For clarification: How does an application in the Mepis repos affect its existence as a stand-alone Debian program?

Edit: Never mind. I found the link to Deb files on the Repo page.

Officially not at all.
For our repositories we backport Debian & Ubuntu packages and package programs that don't already have an existing debian style package from scratch. And as we are free to use those repositories & PPAs, others are free to use ours.
MEPIS 12 & MX-14 packages are Debian Wheezy compatible & MX-15 packages will be Debian Jessie compatible.
There are debian users who use our repositories for certain packages, and I'm fairly certain that some of our "from scratch" packages have led to official debian packages being built. But there's no official connection.
