How to install Splashtop on Mint 14?

Postby jrohde on Wed Dec 12, 2012 11:37 am

I wanted to install Splashtop on my Mint 14, and downloaded the install package from http://www.splashtop.com/streamer/linux#download. When I open it in Gdebi, I'm told that there is a dependency issue with the package libx264-120. I have libx164-123 installed. So do I really need this (I guess) older version or can I somehow ignore it? If not, can I install the 120 version alongside the 123 version? If so, how do I do it?

I'm trying to do this as well. Here's what I'm currently trying:


Code: Select all
dpkg-deb --extract Splashtop_Streamer_Ubuntu_v2.0.0.11_amd64.deb splashtop_custom
dpkg-deb -e Splashtop_Streamer_Ubuntu_v2.0.0.11_amd64.deb splashtop_custom/DEBIAN
/usr/bin/perl -p -i -e "s/libx264-120/libx264-123/g" splashtop_custom/DEBIAN/control
dpkg-deb -b splashtop_custom
sudo dpkg -i splashtop_custom.deb


Essentially this is just modifying the requirements of the package. I'm not trying to figure out if this broke anything.

Here is what I tried mates.

Since the libx264 dependency is too hard to trick (at least for me), I stopped trying to fool Splashtop to believe there is a shared object called libx264-120, pointingt o the libx264-123 library.

I dont garantee your computer will return safely, or that it will be the same after running these commands, proceed on your own risk:
Code: Select all
# apt-get remove libx264-123
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
The following package was automatically installed and is no longer required:
  lib32stdc++6
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove it.
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly libmjpegtools-1.9 libquicktime2
  libx264-123 mint-meta-codecs vlc vlc-nox vlc-plugin-notify vlc-plugin-pulse
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 10 to remove and 5 not upgraded.
After this operation, 16.9 MB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]?

wget http://mirrors.us.kernel.org/ubuntu//pool/universe/x/x264/libx264-120_0.120.2151+gita3f4407-2_amd64.deb

dpkg -i libx264-120_0.120.2151+gita3f4407-2_amd64.deb

apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse* gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly* libquicktime2* mint-meta-codecs* vlc* vlc-nox* vlc-plugin-notify* vlc-plugin-pulse* python-keyring

dpkg -i Splashtop_Streamer_Ubuntu_v2.0.0.11_amd64.deb


The downside is the amount of packages you end up re-downloading, but aside of this, all went well :lol:

I am now trying to connect.....

Did either of your methods work? I tried both methods and cannot get a connection. The computer shows up on the tablet and asks for the security code but fails to connect.
