Postby nalsdixit on Fri Nov 27, 2009 8:01 am

i am trying to upgrade to a newer version of miro (2.5.3) versus the one in the repositories which is 2.0.3

the 2.5.3 version as per the miro website should be supported in ubuntu jaunty, but i am unable to figure out a way to add it to the repositories and download it

deb http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/pculture.org/ ... ies/ubuntu jaunty/

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

in a terminal, enter
Code: Select all
gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list


Add the deb line in your post to the end of the file, save it, then quit.

Then, in the terminal again, enter
Code: Select all
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude upgrade


Miro should then be updated to the latest version
GA-965-DS3, Core 2 Quad 2.4GHz, 8GB DDR2, 2x1TB HDD, Linux Mint 11
Acer Aspire 5332, Pentium dual core 2.2GHz, 4GB DDR3, 500GB HDD, Linux Mint 11, Linux Mint Debian
Compaq CQ-60, Sempron 2.10GHz, 4GB DDR2, 120GB HDD, Tinycore 3.7rc2 (Minecraft server!)

thanks, did what you said, looked like the miro link was added.

i then went to software manager to install miro, however only the older version was shown

i did a sudo apt-get-install miro command in terminal

looked like was getting installed, until the following note came up

++
user@user ~ $ sudo apt-get install miro
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
miro is already the newest version.
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
miro: Depends: miro-data (>= 2.5.3) but 2.0.3-1ubuntu2 is to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
++

do i have to use a different command ?

tks

It looks like a dependency issue with the old version of miro-data not wanting to cooperate with the new install. Try this from the terminal instead.
Code: Select all
sudo aptitude install miro
