Debian Configuration :: Can't Install GNOME Or KDE In Stretch (dependency)
Jul 15, 2015
I'm trying to install KDE, but I can't. I've tried using tasksel, but it gave me an error, so I tried to install task-kde-desktop myself. When I did that, I ran into some dependency issues:
Code: Select allSome packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
task-kde-desktop : Depends: kde-standard but it is not going to be installed
Depends: kdm but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: kdeaccessibility but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: k3b but it is not going to be installed
When i'm tried google there is lots of bootlogd related document there. [URL] .... Yes there is documentation. But I'm only need "enable boot logging","reading boot log". Bootlogd not worked on jessie/stretch.
I've just installed debian testing on my computer (netinst AKA basic shell version). Now, how do I do a minimal gnome install? Minimal means, I don't need libreoffice or any extra bloat. However, I do want nautilus, gnome-settings-daemon and networkmanager (and of course, firefox!).
Also, is audio included or not in gnome-shell?
If I just install the gnome-shell package (with --no-install-recommends package), will it pull in gdm, Xorg, etc. or do I have to install them separately? Also, need to confirm whether my sources.list is properly set or not:
Code: Select alldeb http://ftp.security.debian.org/debian/ stretch main non-free contrib deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates main
After mapping iscsi storage from my netapp and scanning for new devices I run multipath -v2 to create the multipath device handle under /dev/mapping/. This normally takes about 2 seconds or less on every other linux distribution I use. On Stretch it takes a little over 3 minutes. I have tried several different versions of multipath.conf but the result is always the same.
My most recent multipath.conf file is available here : [URL] ....
and the output of multipath -v4 is available here : [URL] ....
I have installed debian stretch on this machine, but can't get wired ethernet running. Using Slitaz live disc, the wired connection works. Guess I am missing a package or two.
Slitaz system (2.6.37) info reports:
Code: Select alltg3: Broadcom Tigon3 ethernet driver ath5k : Support for 5xxx series of Atheros 802.11 wireless LAN cards ath: Shared library for Atheros wireless LAN cards mac80211: IEEE 802.11 subsystem cfg80211: wireless configuration support rfkill: RF switch support
I'm using Debian Stretch with Gnome and Cinnamon. My desktop computer sports an nvidia geforce 970 gpu (this may be relevant, and it is the reason I had to go with stretch.) I'm not a very experienced linux user but I get along fine.
I'm sharing my computer with my mom and whenever we have to switch users, the computer seems to shut down for 35 seconds: the screen doesn't receive signal anymore. After a new user is chosen, it takes another 35 seconds to get to her session. This is embarassing because my os runs on an ssd and everything else is nice and fast. At first I thought it may be a matter of us two not using the same window manager or not using the "default" window manager, but changing window managers didn't work.
Today I learned about the existence of /var/log/syslog and I decided to check what happened to it when I switched users. I can't post the whole log of what happens because it is too big, but I put it on pastebin : [URL] ....
I understand almost nothing of what is written here, but I saw some interesting things:
- after 35 seconds intervals where nothing is logged, there is a stall on cpu detected (lines 68, 500) - my gpu seems to have something to do in all this
After years with debian stable I'm testing debian...testing (stretch) in a separate partition. I'm just using the stretch repositories and nothing else, so that I won't mess up the system by pulling packages from different branches.
Unfortunately ecryptfs-utils is not (yet) available on stretch. Is there any safe way to use this package on my debian stretch, preferably the stable package from jessie?
How long it will take for this package to reach stretch from unstable?
I have a laptop with 2 HDDs, 1x SSD (/dev/sda, Windows 10 Pro x64) and 1x HDD (/dev/sdb, 3 primary partitions: boot, root, swap; 1 logical partition: home).I used the Debian Stretch Alpha D1 Netinstall ISO x64 by transfering it to a USB stick with DiskImage Writer.The installation went perfectly fine. I chose GRUB to be installed in the MBR of /dev/sdb, as I want all my Linux Stuff on that second disk. The plan is to boot the second disk manually through the BIOS whenever I want to work with Debian. My Windows disk is kept unaware of anything "linuxy".
After the install was complete and I booted my /dev/sdb through the BIOS, a blinking cursor on a black screen was the result. And I don't mean a GRUB Rescue prompt.IMHO, Grub appears to not have been installed, although I chose it to be installed in the MBR of /dev/sdb at the end of the installation.
I've been reading a little, searching for a bug in the installer, but I found only a vague mentioning of such an issue: Grub missing if Debian installed on a multi-hdd system through USB stick. The solution was to get Super Grub2 Disk, and use it to boot my Debian. It worked as expected and the system booted.
Here's my problem: I'm running a Lenny laptop and I need both wifi and virtualbox to work. I had to do a kernel upgrade to run the wifi. It works with either the 2.6.29 or 2.6.30 kernels, but with 2.6.30 I'm having screen brightness issues that I can't seem to get rid of. So I want to run 2.6.29, but virtualbox is a bit of a problem because it requires linux-headers-2.6.29, but when I try to install the amd64 headers it tells me that it cannot install the dependency linux-kbuild-2.6.29. Is there any way I can get that dependency installed on my computer?
I've got this weird problem: when I reboot my Debian 8.3 server, I have to run through the crypto unlocking processes for my encrypted volumes a few times before I actually get to a login screen. The operation times out 85% of the time, leaving me to reboot and try over and over until the system is happy.
Here's my partitioning setup (manually partitioned at install): /boot: 500 MB, EXT2, nodev, nosuid, noexec /tmp: 2 GB, EXT2, AES-256/xts-plain64 with RANDOM KEY swap: 2.5 GB, AES-256/xts-plain 64 with RANDOM KEY /: 35 GB, EXT4, AES-256/xts-plain 64 with PASSPHRASE /var: 35 GB, EXT4, AES-256/xts-plain 64 with PASSPHRASE /home: 45 GB, EXT4, AES-256/xts-plain 64 with PASSPHRASE
Here's the output from journalctl -b -p 3: Code: Select allDate and time | server name | systemd: Timed out waiting for device dev-sda5.device Date and time | server name | systemd: Dependency failed for Cryptography Setup for sda5_crypt Date and time | server name | systemd: Dependency failed for Encrypted Volumes Date and time | server name | systemd: Dependency failed for dev-mapper-sda5_crypt.device Date and time | server name | systemd: Dependency failed for /tmp
I had the same problem in previous builds where I chose Twofish instead of AES, and I was hoping that the timeouts would be fixed by switching to AES as my CPU has the AES instruction set. Obviously that didn't make a damn bit of difference.
What am I doing wrong, or what should I change in my setup? The encryption is a requirement. Could the problem be caused by something as stupid as using a RANDOM KEY instead of a PASSPHRASE on /tmp and swap?
I recently upgraded my Debian box from Jessie to Stretch. After this, apt informed me that I should issue "apt-get autoremove," however the package list to be effected was large and contained some important packages (xorg being just one example). Most of the packages are qt4 related, and I at first assumed qt5 equivalents had replaced them, but seeing network-manager and xorg in the list made me pause.
I've recently installed Debian Stretch and Gnome. After setting up everything I ran into an issue with Rhythmbox, which apparently only occurs if NFS mounts are present in /etc/fstab, independent on the question of whether they are actually mounted or not. I'll attach the results from running it from console with 'rhythmbox -d': [URL] .....
I guess, the last lines are the "problematic ones" but I can't make sense out of them. After the last line, a window opens telling me that rhythmbox isn't responding, whether I want to kill it.
And the /etc/fstab entrys (in case any of those options is an issue):
Have 'Phatch' installed and running on 'Stretch'? I had no problems on 'Jessie' but on a new install of Stretch I just get the 'Phatch' icon in the middle of the screen. Tried from Command line and this is the output:
/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/wx-3.0-gtk2/wx/_core.py:8196: GtkWarning: gtk_disable_setlocale() must be called before gtk_init() return _core_.PyApp__BootstrapApp(*args, **kwargs) Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/wx-3.0-gtk2/wx/_core.py", line 16765, in <lambda> lambda event: event.callable(*event.args, **event.kw) )
The 'Phatch' forums have not had any recent posts and the 'Phatch' website [URL] .... has 'Server not found'.
I have installed Package: gnumeric (1.12.18-2) in my Jessie/Mate system. It is very jittery on scrolling, and I was wondering if I should upgrade to the version (1.12.26-1) in stretch(testing), as there seem to have been a large number of bugfixes.
I have tried the following simulation command, but it gives the error message shown:
Code: Select all~# apt-get --simulate -t stretch install gnumeric Reading package lists... Done E: The value 'stretch' is invalid for APT::Default-Release as such a release is not available in the sources
The documentation suggests that I may need to create an apt preferences file. I do not have any of the following files mentioned by the apt-get man page:
What I would like to do is upgrade just the specific package jessie/gnumeric(1.12.18-2) to stretch/gnumeric(1.12.26-1). I do not want any other packages to be inadvertently upgraded to stretch. I have seen warnings that one can easily end up with a badly mixed system and I wish to avoid that! I also do not want to disturb the standard apt-get update, which I am running daily via anacron at present.
I have been encounter 2 bugs on 2 sides of the coin. Seems it doesn't fix since Wheezy till now.
1. When I don't install any nonfree firmware I'm stuck at 1024x768 resoultions unable to turn to 1366x768 2. But when I install nonfree firmware my 1366x768 was solved but I encounter other new bugs
>> On Jessie: XFCE4.10 doesn't save any wallpaper everytime when reboot the pc & always reset to default. But when remove nonfree firmware the bg save normally but I've to stuck at 1024x768 resulotion. This also happen on Wheezy as well. >> On Stretch: XFCE4.12 workspace become too long ugly. But when remove nonfree firmware the workspace become normal but I've to stuck at 1024x768 resulotion once again.
So any way with nonfree installed without this XFCE bugs or without nonfree driver install but make resolution 1366x768 work for not to stuck in 1024x768 resolutions. Overall I'm quite satisfy Stretch testing than Jessie Stable.
I upgraded the distro (Strecht - Testing) and the result was almost the same mentioned by mittgreen, when I boot the system it fails to load the X, ending in the "oh no something has gone wrong" screen.Now, the only possible way to use the GUI is to start it manually by startx command. Reading the Xorg.log I saw a "No screens found" error.
Installed kdeconnect from Stretch repo, and KDE Connect from F-Droid on my phone, but I don't know how to get this working. No KDE Connect options anywhere in System Settings (I also search there for "connect" and don't find anything related to KDE Connect). There's no GUI anywhere, no Plasma 5 widgets, nothing. Only "kdeconnect-cli", which when I enter "kdeconnect-cli -l" (list devices) I get
Code: Select allkdeconnect-cli(26749)/kdeconnect DevicesModel::refreshDeviceList: dbus interface not valid 0 devices found
On the phone side, "No devices" found when it searches, or when I press refresh. Why is there no System Settings option even after installing the kdeconnect package?
I recently upgraded my debian system from jessie to stretch. Before then, I was mostly using hibernation instead of shutting off the laptop, to allow myself to get back faster to work the next day. Since my upgrade, though, it is impossible for me to resume from hibernation: after the normal boot sequence and the passphrase to decrypt my lvm partition, when it has loaded the information from RAM the screen just stays with a blinking "_" (underscore) in the top left corner.
I have hibernate and uswsusp packages installed. I also installed tuxonice-userui package to do some tests with the hibernate-ram and hibernate-disk commands. While using hibernate-disk (hibernate-ram didn't work, because "s2ram: unknown machine"), my system hibernates correctly, and I saw that during resume it was correctly loading everything from swap and then going back to the "underscore screen", confirming that the resume problem was happening after loading data from swap.
I tried booting using the recovery kernel in grub. For a time it worked, but today I didn't get the chance to make it work. The only solution was for me to boot my kernel by adding the "noresume" option to it, thus forcing it to restart.
I have Asus Z87-PRO motherboard with i5-4670k and I'm trying to install Debian Testing with 64-bit architecture. My problem is mouse and keyboard (I guess USB in general) stop working after installer get loaded (the last thing I do is choose between text and graphical install). I found a few topics on different forums indicating that I should enable IOMMU (Intel VT-d) option in my bios.
The problem is that Intel k-series processors didn't use to have IOMMU support, so there's nothing I can do about it. I tried changing different bios options like disabling UEFI, enabling xHCI and EHCI with no luck. Passing "iommu=off" or "iommu=soft" to the boot command also doesn't work. However, I have LMDE 2 64-bit live cd (based on Debian Jessie) and it works fine, so I guess my problem may be related to some changes in 4.2 kernel.
I use Fedora 12 AMD64 and Gnome and some packages like K3B , I want use KDE and I want remove completely Gnome and all thing is depend on Gnome and use install KDE for Default Desktop How I can do this ?
I am a Linux noob (running Ubuntu 9.10) and not even an advanced Win. user. However, my switch to Linux was for simplicity, stability, fewer crashes,and the open-source software philosophy. However, Ubuntu hasn't been what I am hoping for. While Scientific Linux and Vector seem like good second choices, they don't seem to have the community/enthusiasm that Slackware has. However everything I read is all about "dependency management" w/r/t Slackware. Is this really a big problem? As a newbie, how will I deal with it? I am willing to learn but realize that I am starting from scratch.
I've just installed lenny from dvd, and am just settling in. I'm curious about virtual machines. so I've installed xen. With xen comes qemu by default. Now the setup I've recently become familiar with is Suse-11 which is quite slick.In Suse, Yast provides a distribution prepared virtual management section for xen, including an installer. Debian's setup is similar but not a clone. I want to try out the installer. Aside from the differences, debian has a screaming deficit. On booting dom0 in Lenny, if fails to get into gnome, badly. I can tell what's probably wrong, but I need to fix it. Now I'm also a gentoo fan and very practised at posting queries, so here goes.
Debian's config for X is somewhat unhelpful. The xorg.conf just states Configured device and configured monitor for its components. If it expanded on just what the settings were it would help. What I have is a frambuffer driver not loadinf or being implemented.
We have setup Squeeze a Test machine , just for some tests, without network, Internet etc. and we need to allow root login in Gnome. We've changed /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf:[security] AllowRoot=truebut still doesn't work.
