On a pristine MEPIS 8.5 64bit install, all it takes to get pigeonplanner running is python-glade2 . This will automatically bring python-gtk2, python-cairo & python-numeric with it. This does not remove any packages. If it asks to remove packages on your installation, you need to check your reposito...

Given that, I would try installing python-gnome2.
There's probably another dependency that brings in.

If that doesn't work, let me know what version of MEPIS you're using and whether it's 32 or 64 bit and I'll figure out what it's looking for.

On MEPIS 8.5, I downloaded it, extracted it from the command line tar -xzvf pigeonplanner-0.8.2.tar.gz I then opened the folder in Dolphin, clicked on the pigeonplanner.py file and it started right up. I could also start it up from the Konsole with: cd pigeonplanner-0.8.2/ ./pigeonplanner.py If your...

The comm command, like many unix commands, will accept a file parameter of - indicating standard input, so something like this will work: grep {pattern} FILE1 | comm - FILE2 I've fiddled with your example and apt-get -o 'Debug::NoLocking=true' -s upgrade|grep -A500 -e 'back:' -e 'upgraded:' -e 'upgr...

In Konqueror you can select View -> View Mode -> File Size View

Or you can install Baobab from the default repos for a different sort of graphical file size view.

There's another one around but I can't think of it just now.

You can use Gnupg, an implementation of openPGP. It's in the repos, and a windows client is available at http://www.gpg4win.org/

Just create your keys, share the public ones and go at it.

As another data point:
I don't have any other Window Managers installed on my Mepis 8 install. If I log into tty1 as my normal user and run startx -- :1 I get a new KDE session on tty8.

Would somebody please test the Gramps 3.2 package that has been placed into the testing section of the Community Repository for both MEPIS 8.0 & 8.5.

We can't move it into main unless we get some feedback, and it will get purged from testing if it doesn't move on.

Thanks!

Tim
