Package won't install -Gramps

Postby owend on Mon Jun 13, 2011 12:15 pm

I'm trying to install Gramps in LMDE too; using Package Manager, I get an error message

W: Failed to fetch http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/ ... -1_all.deb
404 Not Found [IP: 130.89.149.226 80]

plus 8 more all failing to fetch graphviz files from http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g and two iceweasel files from http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/i. I'm not computer-savvy enough to sort, help please!

I'm trying to migrate from Mint 10, and getting a few glitches. Gramps downloads and works fine in M10.

Separately but help appreciated: I've got Google Earth working, but with a black screen instead of a map. Everything else seems right including ruler etc! I've tried the steps in the LMDE/GoogleEarth threads but no joy.

I'm fairly competent, but LMDE is a step further for me!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I feel a bit foolish! Solved both problems by

firstly, unchecking repositories http://ftp.debian.org debian/pool/non-freedebian and http://ftp.debian.org debian/pool/non-freedebian (source code)

secondly, reloading

thirdly, installing nvidia-glx-ia32

at this stage GoogleEarth's world view worked perfectly!

fourthly, installing Gramps

which worked perfectly!

Don't really know why it suddenly worked but perhaps this helps others?
