Re: Un-met dependancies in repos

klinkstatus - Yes, running KDE but it should have either pulled in extra packages or an apt-get -f install should have.
stellarium - won't install at all due to missing packages.

Thank you for the suggestions.

I'd like to install both klinkstatus and stellarium, both in the default repositories but neither is installable without additional packages. Is there a repository I can add that will give me these? klinkstatus : Depends: libkrossui4 (>= 4:4.3.4) stellarium : Depends: libqt5serialport5 (>= 5.1.0) Wh...

Re: How do I print a poster?

1. Just got my poster (20"x30") back from Staples. Colour map 3.5M. It turned out beautifully! 2. Photoprint - and yes it does enlarge! I finally had some time to play with the program. A bit confusing to start with but works well and will get used for enlargements in the future when I'm happy with ...

What I'm trying to do here is break up an image (poster, map, picture) so that I can enlarge the image onto 4 sheets, 6 sheets, etc. that I can trim and tape together.

Re: Libre Office 6.0 -- install?

Downloaded the Linux x86_64 deb package. It comes as a tar.gz file which unpacks to a bunch of .debs.
Moved to the install folder and did a dpkg -i *.deb
No problems with install. Writer looks pretty but I almost never use it. I'll have to leave evaluating the new version to someone else. :D
