Re: [SOLVED] Make a debian package

Wrt knowledge on building debs, you've now caught up with me. If you find what the problem is, post the answer and then I'll learn a little more. I think the link you've posted is indeed the answer. I've also found this topic : https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=266212 , and indeed, I too...

Re: [SOLVED] Make a debian package

You should aim to make the deb work on every ubuntu linux. If you build it on say LM19.3, you might get a dependency problem with an older version, e.g. LM17.3 along the lines of "requires libxyz > V1.2", V1.0 installed. Only one way to find out... The link was the first hit I got googlin...

Re: [SOLVED] Make a debian package

Oh no, I've encountered a problem now... :( I've made my debian package, installed it on the same computer I used to make it. Everything is fine, perfect, and all. I went to install it on another computer, the dependencies installed just fine it seems, but then bam, unable to install the package. Th...

Re: [SOLVED] Make a debian package

On dependencies, you may stumble. An example, foxclone uses mkdir, but you can't list that as a dependency, you need coreutils which is the package that contains mkdir. Others are easy, parted is in the parted package. Google is your friend here - you need to list every linux utility myapp uses and...

Re: [SOLVED] Make a debian package

All you have to do now is try it and then fix the errors :) . Note, for foxclone, my DEBIAN folder only has control, preinst and postinst in it, the rest is optional. In fact the only mandatory item in there is control. It worked ! :D I've tried a simple one, without dependencies (other than python...

Re: Make a debian package

Good luck! To build your deb: dpkg-deb --build /home/you/myapp and it will dump the deb file in /home/you. Thank you ! :) I still have a bit of road ahead, though. Step 1 was to figure and comprehend the structure needed, step 2 will be to properly look into the files from the DEBIAN folder, to com...

Re: Make a debian package

No idea what your setup.py or init.py do, but I'd be tempted to create a folder /opt/myapp and put them in there along with the license.txt. However when those scripts get called, you will need to specify the full pathname. With your current structure, setup.py will get copied into / when you run t...

Re: Make a debian package

If you leave it in the myapp folder (even if you move the folder into /bin ) the user won't be able to execute myapp, they will need to enter the full pathname to myapp. Ok, got it. I've made a new file tree, if I got everything right, it should be correct, right ? debfiletree3.png Although, now I'...

Re: Make a debian package

As far as your original structure is concerned, it is only approximately correct, e.g. you would normally put executables in one of the existing bin or sbin folders, or maybe in opt with a symlink and .desktop files live in usr/share/applications. Ah, that's actually why I've made this topic. I hav...

Re: Make a debian package

Nobody knows ? :?: Looks like I got confused, after reading more documentation, I figured I do need to add a "rule" file in the DEBIAN folder, and a few other files. This part is quite covered, I should be good with the documentation. But I'm still a bit confused about the dependencies tho...

[SOLVED] Make a debian package

I've been reading a lot of documentation about how to make a deb package. It doesn't seem to be very complicated, it seems to be a matter of "placing the right files at the right place". However, I'm not sure if I have got everything right. I will be testing first with some "Hello wor...

Re: Super annoying high pitch noise in new computer

Some people consider themselves the forum police. Maybe they were also hall monitors in school. It's not like you are messing with us on purpose. You're just trying to get your issue fixed. I see posts like this as a drop in the ocean of information for future users. Like you said, maybe it could s...

Re: Super annoying high pitch noise in new computer

Your issue has absolutely nothing to do with Linux Mint. Well, it is in the hardware section of the forum, after all. Now all we can do is hope people at AMD or from power supply/other hardware manufacturers check tech/computer forums still for issues to be solved in their next hardware they're wor...

Re: Super annoying high pitch noise in new computer

After 2 days of using the computer a little/for short whiles : no noise when doing simple stuff, audible but not too loud noise when I'm rendering animation. Set up of what I'm using for animation is still "light weight" kind of, not sure if it would be worse if/when I decide to use stuff ...

Yesterday the repair guy did something... Take it back. It has nothing to do with Linux Mint. I'm sorry, I'm not sure I get what you mean. Do you mean take it back to the shop ?

Re: Super annoying high pitch noise in new computer

Follow up : the power supply has been changed, the computer case has been changed (to something with supposedly better sound isolation). Still trying and stuff, but the sound is still there when rendering animation, just way less loud than before. (Yesterday, I could literally hear the noise from th...
