screenlets???

Post by LennartL »

Hey!
I upgraded LinuxMint 20 Mate but it did not work out so well.
So I installed a brand new one instead.
My question: When I upgraded to Linux 20, screenlets worked.
But when I installed a brand new 20, screenlets do not work.
I can 't get it started anymore.
It says that PPA does not work in 20.
How do I fix it ??

As LM 20 uses gtk 3 and screenlets uses gtk 2 its not so easy to install them on a fresh LM 20 without some gtk 2 dependencies.

I installed the dependencies and screenlets are running now on my LM 20 xfce.

Look here (into my thread) which dependencies are needed :

That was a good answer!
But it does not work anyway.
I installed all the packages.
When to install "
screenlets_0.1.7-yakkety_all.deb "
so the program says "Dependency is not satisfied: python-gnome2

and the same goes for the screenlets-pack-all package.
Then the program says: "Dependency is not satisfied: screenlets> =

So how can I proceed with the installation of screenlets ??

In my thread it is listed see(#15)
python-gnome2
http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/u ... _amd64.deb

You can also look for missing dependencies when you do a search by pkgs.org
enter in your Search engine something like : pkgs python-gnome2

This is weird!
I have installed all the packages except Pyton-gnome2
and then screenlets just as above.
When I now click on your link, I get this page:

And the strange thing is that it has been installed before.

How did you install libbonoboui2-0

Link is in my thread (#9)

libbonoboui2-0_2.24.5-4_amd64.deb

And the version is higher as : libbonoboui2-0 (>=2.15.1)
....... like your packet-manager wants by clicking my link

When i click on the link gdebi says : same version is already installed
This is weird!
I have installed all the packages except Pyton-gnome2
and then screenlets just as above.
So at the end it was able to you to install the screenlets packages ?

No. It just goes around and around from one package to the other.
And all should be installed according to your list.
Except just screenlets.
And starting with screenlets it just goes around and around again

My way was to download all dependecies in the list to a folder.

Out of that folder i clicked them in the order like seen on my thread ..... and everything was installable via gdebi........

Try to hold the order by installing them, while one package depends to other packages ..........

May be you forgot something between like : libbonoboui2-common_2.24.5-4_all.deb

edit : only to let you see that screenlets are up and running on my LM 20 xfce :

It works!!!
I saved all the packages in one folder and from there I installed them all again.
But I had to give the packages a number so I got them in the right order.
Thanks securelT you are worth gold
