Cannot install libicu34. SOLVED!

Postby Red Knuckles on Sun Apr 29, 2007 12:53 pm

I installed Linux Mint Bianca KDE mini. The release notes suggest that after installing mini you install these packages that are on the full KDE DVD:

For users who do not have a DVD burner we're also releasing a "miniKDE" Edition which fits on a CD. The following items are not present in the miniKDE Edition and we strongly encourage miniKDE Edition users to install them after they downloaded and installed from the CD:

* Support for other languages (only English is supported by the liveCD, other languages can be added once the system is installed)
* Inkscape
* Hugin
* Scribus
* KMymoney
* K9Copy
* The Gimp
* libicu34
* kde-icons-mono
* ttf-arabeyes
* diveintopython

I was able to install everything but libicu34. I have ALL repos currently enabled in '/etc/apt/sources.list'. What, if anything, should I do about this??? :?: If I try 'sudo aptitude install libicu34' I get this result:

:~$ sudo aptitude install libicu34

Yet libicu34 is listed in Adept PM. What to do??? :shock: :x :P

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

libicu34 is a file that has to do with localized settings in office (open and K) so it ought to be in your system if you install office. Else you don't need it I believe unless you have wine. Sorry for the somewhat "simple" answer but that's just about all I find out. Uncle google does not want to share more with me :)

Thanks for the reply. I got this Ubuntu link from Uncle Google:

http://packages.ubuntu.com/dapper/libs/libicu34

Didn't tell me much and I don't seem to be missing anything. Linux Mint seems as fast or maybe faster than my Kubuntu Feisty. The Ubuntu page also gives me download mirrors so I downloaded it and installed it.

sudo dpkg -i libicu34_3.4.1a-1ubuntu1_i386.deb

It is now listed as installed in Adept PM. It is installed in '/usr/share/doc/', and '/usr/share/lintian/'. So as far as I know I am now in full compliance with the Release Notes for Bianca KDE mini plus upgraded to Feisty and all initial problems solved.

After 4 days I really like this version of this distro. Very nice. :D

Also thanks for reminding to check Google before posting. :oops: I did do a forum search though. :shock:
