Install Calligra on Mint 13 - How?

Postby pnguine on Tue Dec 04, 2012 1:06 am

Can't find Calligra in synaptic. Added suggested ppa "kubuntu-backports" (Calliga page does not mention Mint). Still no Calligra. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

You don't need backports

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install calligra

Here's mine:

Code: Select all
cat /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ lisa main upstream import
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ oneiric main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ oneiric-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ oneiric-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ oneiric partner
deb http://packages.medibuntu.org/ oneiric free non-free

# deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu oneiric-getdeb apps
# deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu oneiric-getdeb games

deb http://cran.stat.sfu.ca/bin/linux/ubuntu oneiric/


Looks like I'm on 12 - I thought it was 13.

Any problems if I do a dist-upgrade? I've read it's not recommended. I really don't want to do a 'clean install' (in M$ terminology).
And I don't remember if I installed Mate or Cinnamon or if I've got some sort of hybrid. Is there a way to tell?
Or.. any idea how I could get it onto 12?
TIA

Code: Select all
cat /etc/lsb-release


You may need to look for kOffice not Calligra

Dist-Upgrade is not my choice

Whatever you do, backup. And only ever go up 1 release at a time

Thanks again. I think I'll put it on the back burner until I upgrade following the guide here http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/2. I was only interested in Calligra because I'm kinda annoyed by application programs that are written in java - especially now that the oracle octopus owns it. (But then I'm not sure that Calligra is a compiled program anyway. :roll: )
