Debian Installation :: Must Have At Least One Backend To Build Pango

Aug 13, 2014

I am trying to install gnome-mplayer to see if I update it, for he not catching more when I play the videos, and it is asking me to have at least one "backend "to compile Pango. I do not understand this output. Have you tried installing the source Cairo.ttf but solves nothing. Cairo is installed as described but do not understand this output.

Red Hat / Fedora :: PNG Backend Error While Installing Cairo-1.6.0 - Requested PNG Backend Could Not Be Enabled

Nov 29, 2010

I want to install GTK+. I see there are also numerous dependencies, which i've been slowly tackling, and the Cairo package has been particularly difficult. It claims the following upon ./configure --prefix=/usr configure: WARNING: Could not find libpng in the pkg-config search path checking whether cairo's PNG backend could be enabled... no configure: error: requested PNG backend could not be enabled I've done some searching and found that libpng.pc is in my /usr/lib/pkgconfig/ directory and that the following commands don't do the trick:

Debian :: Install Not Supported By Backend

Aug 14, 2015

I am new to Debian Wheezy and I can't install anything. Ever time I try to install a .deb file I get the message saying that installation is not supported by backend. Also I'm unable to install from the terminal; it always says something like "path not found" or "file doesn't exist" (I'm on my phone so I don't have an exact error detail). Everything I've read tells me to install something to fix the problem but I can't install them due to the same error.

Debian Installation :: Weekly Build Successful Install But GNOME Freezes Often

Aug 18, 2010

I installed Debian Squeeze-testing weekly build today, with CD1 alone. It took 1 Hour 38 minutes to install and configure on my Pentium 4 2.7 Ghz , 1GB ram HP machine. I have some trouble with the installation. Sometimes the desktop just freezes while moving Icons, or opening Xterm. I cannot use Ctrl-Alt-Backspace, OR Ctrl-Alt-Delete keys. I have to physically reboot. Why doesn't Ctrl-Alt-Backspace work on GNOME? Is there a IRC chat for Debian Help and what applications does one use on GNOME for IRC chat?

Debian Configuration :: Build A Package - Debian / Rules Error?

I recently tossed Ubuntu for Debian Unstable for my personal machines and I'm having trouble building Emerald into a package. I've already configured and installed the package (using the usual ./configure, make, make install) but I wanted to make a deb for future use (for myself and for others). However every time I try to run dpkg-build I get the following error message.

Ubuntu :: By Default Pango Is Choosing AR PL UMing CN As Font To Render Japanese Text When Current Font Doesn't Have Japanese Glyphs

May 4, 2010

Actually I want to log a bug but I don't really know what package to log it against. The problem is that by default Pango is choosing the AR PL UMing CN as the font to render Japanese text when the current font doesn't have Japanese glyphs. But AR PL UMing CN is a Chinese font, so Chinese glyphs for kanji characters (e.g., 覚) are displayed. This is jarring and confusing for Japanese readers.

This situation mostly arises when you have mixed English and Japanese text. Some applications (for instance Firefox) will allow you to select a font for Asian text. Thus if the text contains only Asian characters it will use the font you select, rather than what Pango would have selected. But if it is a mix of English and Japanese, you end up with the wrong glyphs.

Other environments (like gnome-terminal, or a gedit) have difficulties as well. Since the primary interface requires mono spaced roman characters you run into difficulty selecting fonts. Most Japanese fonts only have proportional roman characters. This means that if use a nice roman font and use Japanese text (for instance file names), you end up with Chinese glyphs. What I want is a mechanism that will work across all of Gnome for selecting the font I want to use for Chinese characters. That way I can choose either Japanese or Chinese glyphs.

I realize this is low priority. It only bugs me a little, but many of my Japanese colleagues are put off from using Ubuntu because they are confused by the Chinese glyphs that pop up on my screen from time to time. As I said, I'd like to file a bug, but I'm not sure against what package...

OpenSUSE :: Find All The Build-deps Or What They Are For That Matter To Build Boxee

Feb 20, 2010

I'm in love with my Opensuse 11.2. Love my KDE 4.4. The only thing I miss from my Ubuntu installation, is the ability to use Boxee. I would be more than willing to compile Boxee from source. I only have 2 problems with that:

1) I don't know where I can find all the build-deps or what they are for that matter to build Boxee.

2) I'm running on a Netbook. Yes, my measly Intel Atom is no fun for compiling and building.

What are my options/what can I do to get Boxee up and running on 11.2? I've tried searching on build service for an RPM, but I think due to legal restrictions, Boxee can't be on there.

Debian :: Custom Build Of PHP?

Nov 16, 2010

I followed The Perfect Server - Debian Lenny on howtoforge website. (Just changed some instructions to fit Sqeeze) * I did not install Control Panel, just software like LAMPP & Mail Servers - SMTP(SSL+AUTH) + POP(SSL) + IMAP(SSL).When I installed PHP it installed it with Suhosin Patch, but that patch was giving me a headache with some web scripts that I write for myself. So I decided to compile it for myself. Here is how I done it:

apt-get install build-essential
apt-get build-dep php5 (It installed about hundred packages)
apt-get source php5

Slackware :: Install The I386 Build On One Partition And The 64-bit Build On Another

Sep 16, 2010

Trying to install SW 13.1 (on DVD) on the following system: M/B Intel: DX38BT Processor Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 - 2.66GHz, 8MB Cache, 1066MHz FSB, Socket 775 Memory Corsair Dual Channel 8192MB PC10600 DDR3 1333MHz Memory (4x2048MB) Graphics Diamond Radeon HD 3850 Video Card - Viper, 512MB GDDR3, PCI Express 2.0 P/S Ultra 1000W

My goal is to install the i386 build on one partition and the 64-bit build on another. I have been away from Linux for a while and am sick to death of Win7, want to come home. :-}

Booted on i386 side of DVD, system freezes after a couple of lines that start with ATA2. Does not respond to 3 finger salute, ctrl-c, nothing. Have to press reset. I have tried both huge.s and hugesmp.s kernels

Booted on 64-bit side, comes up fine. I performed the install, selected for automatic lilo install. Lilo install hung but I was able to reboot. I booted off the 64-bit side again, entered the following: huge.s root=/dev/sde3 rdinit= ro It booted fully to the login prompt but the keyboard does not work, no input.

Debian :: Using Dpkg-buildpackage To Build Qt?

Oct 12, 2010

I'm trying to build Qt using dpkg-buildpackage. Briefly, the problem I have consists in that using dpkg-buildpackage I get a linking error, that I don't get if I run configure and make directly, without the mediation of dpkg-buildpackage. One of the issues that we have is that, using dpkg-buildpackage, the configure command is not capable of finding the .qmake.cache file, so, the environment variables set in the configure script and saved in that file are not read, which causes that the apropiate linking parameters are not used. I guess that the problem is caused by a difference in the environment of execution of the configure command. I don't know in which way the dpkg-buildpackage is changing the environment so that it makes fail the building process.

I run 'make deb-x11' to start building process using dpkg-buildpackage: This is the main Makefile:

X11_DEB = gvr-qt-x11-lgpl_$(X11_VERSION)_i386.deb

Debian :: Build Customized Version Of The LMDE2

Jul 27, 2015

I'm currently trying to make my version of the LMDE 2 (based on Debian), but unfortunately, a lot of HOW-TO on this topic, is based on the remastersys, and the main site (and repository) is not available any more. The only one I could find is ubuntu build and they won't work on LMDE because it's Debian based. I also have tried tools like "systemback" - made a 4GB iso image file, and had few options to customize, and "bootcd" package, who had even less options (received a 2GB iso).

So, what I want:

Base system: LMDE 2 + official updates + some new software (like pinta, openshot, deluge etc.) + some removed software + fresh kernel -> compress it all and make an iso image file with option to load in LiveCD/USB mode and also install on HDD. I have made all the chain except "last iso part".

Debian :: High End (But Not Bleeding Edge) Build?

Sep 10, 2011

Some searches seemed to indicate that it's been awhile since there's been a build thread, so I thought I'd start one. I'm looking to replace a six-year old machine (Athlon XP 3200+ processor (introduced in 2003), integrated graphics with no dedicated graphics card). I'm rocking Windows XP Home Edition (32 bit).

I'm not a "computer hobbyist," far from it. I use my machine mainly for browsing, word processing, and business (QuickBooks and Turbo Tax). It is a tool. I don't really enjoy fiddling around with computers. My current machine is now barely able to support a good research session on the 'Net anymore, the little processor seemingly gagging on the heavy flash content you see everywhere nowadays, the 2GB (the most she'll take) of RAM easily filled.

I'm planning some rough travel international motorcycle trips (see my motorcycle build thread here (don't worry about registering on this motorcycle forum.....they are good folks and I've never gotten any spam from them) and purchased, a while back, an Asus eee PC 901 with the OEM Xandros (a bastardized offshoot of Etch) loaded to use with those trips. From learning that OS, I saw for myself the benefits of Linux (vs. Windows). Of all the distros, Debian is the most attractive to me (even though I'm currently rocking Puppeee (new version) on the makes that little machine zoooooom!) as I really like the package management system, the logic, and the stability. I also like the feeling of personal responsibility that comes with Debian.

So, back to the build. I'm currently planning on it being a pure Debian machine. I'm ready to move on from Windows, for reasons I don't have to explain here. I stated that I don't particularly care to "play" with computers, but I'm willing to put in some front end labor in order to enjoy a long-term, low-maintenance relationship with my new machine. With that philosophy in mind, I'm looking to build a machine that will serve my simple needs for ten years(!) So, since the costs will be spread out so far, I'm ready to drop some serious (for me) coin on this project in order to avoid having to go through what is, for me, a rather painful process of research again any time soon.
