Debian Weather Applet from Mancoosi

Postby MeV on Tue Aug 02, 2011 6:07 pm

Hi,

I'm new to LMDE (installed it two days ago, on a test persitent live usb for the moment).
I discovered this website on post in this forum (can't remember where) : http://edos.debian.net/weather/
It seems really interesting to have to tool to know when we should do an update and when we should keep our system as is.

The project offers an APT repository with a GNOME applet for this "weather channel" : http://mancoosi.debian.net/
Unfortunately, I can't manage to install the debian-weather-applet package.
apt says that the package depends on python-celementtree which is a virtual package and refuse to install it.

Like I said I'm new to debian, and I don't know if I am doing something wrong.
I use this lines for apt :
Code: Select all
deb http://mancoosi.debian.net/debian/ unstable/all/
deb http://mancoosi.debian.net/debian/ unstable/$(ARCH)/


And I imported GPG with this command :
Code: Select all
wget -O - http://mancoosi.debian.net/debian/mancoosi.asc | apt-key add -


All this config comes form here : http://mancoosi.debian.net/debian/README

Is this just me or the package is broken ?

Thanks for your help

Firstly, I haven't installed this so anyone else please feel free to jump in here, especially if you've installed this package.

But, I just pulled up the url for the repo, and for the amd64 selection the package list appeared to be empty. On the i386 it does have a deb package, with depends of: libc6 (>= 2.3), libpcre3 (>= 7.7), zlib1g (>= 1:1.1.4)
So the package you found that refused to install may be because it would break other packages you have installed. This looks like it's from the 'unstable' branch (aka sid), though sometimes the testing branch will have the same packages as sid, it's not always the case.

If that doesn't help, please advise more specifics such as whether you're using the testing, or stable or unstable branch? (If it's 'standard' linux mint debian then it'll be testing...); as well as whether you're using amd64 or another architecture, and any specific error messages you get when it refuses to install it.

Thanks for your answer CiaW.

Indeed I am using amd64 architecture and the testing branch.

As far as I know, the debian-weather-applet is a python script so it is architecture independant...

I tried to explain the error in my first post : "apt says that the package depends on python-celementtree which is a virtual package and refuse to install it."
I will try to get the exact error message on the evening (I'm at work for the moment). I just did not post before because the error message is in french. I will try to change the locale to get the english error.

By using synaptic, the package becomes breaked when I select it for installation.

If the error message is in French, go ahead and post it and I may understand. I know a little bit and have a French-English dictionary (plus I'm studying the language atm anyway...) Or if it's easy enough to change locale, do that... I haven't researched that topic yet!

Or, there is a French language forum, also: viewforum.php?f=63 You could post there and link this thread.

Lastly, I think the weather applet is probably specifically for sid / unstable... you might be better off installing apt-listbugs and apt-listchanges for the testing repo's.

You're learning French. Wow good luck ;-)
I saw the French forum this morning...

So for the error, let's see in French just for fun :
Code: Select all
Les NOUVEAUX paquets suivants vont être installés :
  debian-weather-applet{b}
0 paquets mis à jour, 1 nouvellement installés, 0 à enlever et 914 non mis à jour.
Il est nécessaire de télécharger 145 ko d'archives. Après dépaquetage, 242 ko seront utilisés.
Les paquets suivants ont des dépendances non satisfaites :
  debian-weather-applet: Dépend: python-celementtree qui est un paquet virtuel
Les actions suivantes permettront de résoudre ces dépendances :

     Conserver les paquets suivants dans leur version actuelle :
1)     debian-weather-applet [Non installé]                     



Accepter cette solution ? [Y/n/q/?]


And in English (I just did "LANG=en_US sudo aptitude install debian-weather-applet") :
Code: Select all
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  debian-weather-applet{b}
0 packages upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 914 not upgraded.
Need to get 145 kB of archives. After unpacking 242 kB will be used.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  debian-weather-applet: Depends: python-celementtree which is a virtual package.
The following actions will resolve these dependencies:

     Keep the following packages at their current version:
1)     debian-weather-applet [Not Installed]             



Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?]


I think this package is just outdated. cElementTree is included in the python standard distribution since python 2.5...
I just thought it would be usefull to have this applet but I think I'm going to see what is apt-listbugs and apt-listchanges...

There is also edos-distcheck in the Debian repositories developed by the same people.

MeV, why don't you first fully update LMDE and see if, after you can meet the dependences required for that package?
NOTE i'm not saying it will, but can help

After a full upgrade, I still can't install this package.

Too bad, I give up
