Bugfix to dependency resolution of pacakges in /opt/debextra repos.

TCB Q&A Forum / Mouse and touch pad no longer work after running xsetup
« Last post by Wolfgange on August 28, 2016, 05:06:49 PM »
So I've done a frugal install of Core Plus 7.2 on a USB drive. The touch pad for my laptop (what I'm running it on) worked flawlessly before. However, the screen resolution had been set too low. So, I ran xsetup from the terminal and selected the correct display resolution. After selecting the resolution it asked for the input scheme, all of which didn't look like the correct one (none dealt with a touchpad). I selected the first one and rebooted.

Fortunately, the screen resolution is now correct, however, the touchpad no longer works. I plugged in a wireless USB mouse and that didn't work either although I did see a strange character in the terminal when I clicked either button. I ran xsetup a few more times selecting the other various input schemes such as COM1 2 button etc. with no luck. Any ideas?

One other quick question: is there a way to click the selected UI element in FLWM with the keyboard? I've figured out you can use tab and shift+tab to cycle through the elements but I've yet to figure out how to activate it.

I found a bug in the dependency routine involving extra repo packages, should be fixed in the RC I am uploading now.

And below is the syntax of the entry of my repo file in /opt/debextra, as specified by the web page of this repo.  The entries in /opt/debextra files needs to be exactly like what would be in Debian/Ubuntu but for the "deb" that they put in front of the http address:

dCore Imported Extensions / Re: gtkfind

Hi Jason. Thanks for your help, still can't get the view window to display, same font error message.

Note sce-update did not detect the extra dependencies, re-importing got them, however. Not sure if sce-update bug with changed dependencies, just reporting.

Despite the error, i now have: /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc/7x13-ISO8859-1.pcf.gz.

Things i've tried: disabling sce.purge, re-importing all sceboot.lst extensions, compiling from source with new dependencies present, modifying source code to utilize a different font. Then gtkfind just reports not having the other font, so the output error message may be misleading.

For some reason gtkfind does not appear to find the font. Not familiar with fonts, symlink issue, something i need to activate, font-config? My system is lean unlike your full-featured system, so maybe still something missing? Is gtkfind working well for you in dCore-Jessie or another flavour?

Edit: The extra dependencies bloated a 2MB extension to 14MB, no problem if it worked :)

For reference: the naming scheme of the repository has slightly changed by now. The "x" is dropped for the final folder; so it should read, for instance,
Code: [Select]

Thanks for double-checking! I did use the correct link on the system, however. It was only for this forum entry that I copied the link from the old thread about the repo.

I just tried it with RC dCore-trusty:2016. and got the same faulty behavior (three packages, two of which meta packages).

The above is a dead link, at least in my trying to access it right now, but the below is not:


Does using the second link work?  And if not, please try with the release candidate of dCore-trusty though there shouldn't be any changes to cause this, there has been a lot of activity in the last month in the RCs.  Thanks.
dCore X86 / Regression in sce-update regarding debextra-repositories?

Hi all!

As you may have noticed, I am re-launching my dCore ventures after half a year of absence. After having upgraded to the actual initrd, I noticed the following strange behavior regarding the Owncloud client software.

I had successfully used their official repo on the OpenSuse servers (cf. http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,18408.0.html) with a file in 'debextra/' containing, in my case,
Code: [Select]
After switching to the current release dCore-trusty:2016. of the initrd, ''sce-update'' found a new version and installed it. That resulted in a totally unfunctional extension, meaning it provided no ''owncloud'' command. After that, I did ''sce-import owncloud-client'' which tried to download three packages, namely libowncloudsync0, owncloud-client, owncloud-client-l10n. (I have the extension depend on LXDE so that seemed okay but it is not, see far below.) All but the first were recognized as meta-packages and therefore the extension did not contain anything useful, i.e. no executable at all.

I tried all sorts of things but could not come up with any explanation or solution. There are some more extra repos but they should not provide any conflicting packages. Specifically, there are PPAs for CherryTree (a note-taking app), for Midor browser and the Canonical partner repo. So AFAICT there is no overlap between these repos.

Since it had worked before, I switched back to the initrd release 2015. To my surprise, the import worked without a flaw. It imported 28 packages, mostly related to Qt.

So either there is something wrong or I missed some change to the behavior of sce-import. I did read the section about repo precedence in the wiki but that did not explain the behavior as it states: "Extra repositories in /opt/debextra/ take precedence over the standard Debian and Ubuntu repositories when importing software."

I also tried disabling the repo from debextra. This does indeed change the behavior with the new release as it imports the full of the Owncloud client from the regular repos.

Does this make sense to anybody?

Added xfonts-base to the deps of gtkfind.  gtkfind runs without issue here on a large desktop install, re-import and test again, thanks.
