Installing Rapid Photo Downloader

Postby Crownvic on Thu Mar 08, 2012 6:35 pm

Hello,

I'm new to linux so please be patient.
I have installed LMDE modified to the squeeze version followed this: http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/497

Now I'm trying to install Rapid Photo Downloader. I'm following this: http://packages.debian.org/sid/all/rapi ... r/download

To the /etc/apt/sources.list I added:
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/ma ... ownloader/ sid main
but when I run apt-get update, I get this:
""""
W: Failed to fetch http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/ma ... ackages.gz 404 Not Found

E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
frank@evga-debian ~ $ sudo apt-get update
E: Malformed line 9 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse)
E: The list of sources could not be read.
frank@evga-debian ~ $
""""
I see that something is wrong with the folder, so I assume my added line in the /etc/apt/sources.list is incorrect, but I can't figure what's the correct way to type it in.

Can anybody help.
Thanks

I can't explain with few words, why your entry in the sources.list is wrong. Delete it and add

Code: Select all
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian unstable main contrib non-free

Then into the terminal type:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install rapid-photo-downloader

Open the sources.list and comment out the unstable line with #
and afterwards do

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update


or simply load down the package from - http://packages.debian.org/sid/all/rapi ... r/download -
and install the package with gdebi.

Thanks for replying

It looks like there are some packages with unmet dependencies:
"
Some 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 information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
initscripts : Breaks: console-setup (< 1.74) but 1.68+squeeze2 is to be installed
libglib2.0-0 : Breaks: gnome-control-center (< 1:3) but 1:2.30.1-2 is to be installed
libgnome-keyring0 : Breaks: gnome-keyring (< 3.0) but 2.30.3-5 is to be installed
network-manager : Recommends: crda but it is not going to be installed
Breaks: network-manager-gnome (< 0.9) but 0.8.1-2 is to be installed
rapid-photo-downloader : Depends: python-gtk2 (>= 2.12) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: python-glade2 (>= 2.17) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: python-gconf (>= 2.28) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: python-gnome2 (>= 2.28) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: python-notify (>= 0.1.1) but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: python-kaa-metadata but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages
"
Have I understood this right, that my LMDE (debian squeeze) is running an older version of these packages/dependencies?
Now, if I upgrade those, could I break something else, or make the system less stable? Or is it possible to install the new (unstable) packages/dependencies, and keep the old ones for the rest of the system???

I guess, you are running LMDE with this sources?

Code: Select all
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import

deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest testing main contrib non-free


Comment the lines out with # and then try again with unstable sources enabled. After you have installed the package,
uncomment the unstable line, enable the linuxmint.com lines and run:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update

The source.list looks like this:

#deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import backport
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
#deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free
#deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free
#deb http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main contrib non-free
#deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org squeeze main non-free
#deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze-updates main contrib non-free
#deb http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports squeeze-backports main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian unstable main contrib non-free

I tried comment out the lines as you suggested, but got same message. Then I comment out everything "squeeze" related, but still same

And I did save the source.list after any change :wink:

You have the testing sources enabled. I think, there is the worm in it with unmet dependencies :wink:

Crownvic,
in short you can't do it (not without messing heavily with your system, and if you did choose to point lmde to squeeze you had a reason for sure)
the output below is what i get in a setup similar to yours (and the big dealbreaker is python, the v. in our systems is to old to the pkg you want to install and try to install a new python v. would mean basically update the all system)
Code: Select all
amadeu@inspiron1545-laptop ~ $ sudo dpkg -i '/home/amadeu/Downloads/rapid-photo-downloader_0.4.3-1_all.deb'
Selecting previously deselected package rapid-photo-downloader.

Hi zerozero,

That's what I was afraid of. The reason for I wanted to point to squeeze was that I wanted the most stable system possible.

Maybe keeping LDME pointing to testing is better anyway. I just tried re-installing LDME latest ISO. Here is the Rapid photo downloader is included in the Software manager.

Thanks for your comments

good option, i would say, if you follow the UP your system will be as stable as a debian-testing distro can be;
don't forget however to check this (if you didn't) viewtopic.php?f=185&t=82346

######
#Rapid-Downloader
######
rapid-photo-downloader 4.5 is broken. To get around this I took the repaired unstable version and did a local install of it.
http://ppa.launchpad.net/dlynch3/rapid- ... a1_all.deb


These are the notes I kept when I was running Linux Mint Debian.
