SOFA (statistics) - python 2.8 request - unable installation

Post by damistas » Wed Jul 20, 2016 8:37 am

Hi,
SOFA (Statistics Open For All) is delivered in "deb" package (sofastats-1.4.6-1_all.deb). SOFA's installer shows dependence error during installatio on Sarah MINT. It expects python-wxgtk2.8 (>=2.8.9.2) when the new version 3 is present in the Sarah. I installed the all packages required by the SOFA's but without positive effects, ie. SOFA still is awaiting python-wxgtk2.8.
I had no problem with installation on Qiana (17.3) with Mate, and the problem is on the Sarah's side, I think.
Then, how to install the SOFA on Sarah MINT?

taken from the instructions from here:

http://askubuntu.com/questions/789302/i ... untu-16-04

Code: Select all

echo "deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu wily main universe" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/wily-copies.list
sudo apt update
sudo apt install python-wxgtk2.8
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/wily-copies.list
sudo apt update
sudo dpkg -i sofastats-1.4.6-1_all.deb
sudo apt-get -f install

Thank you. Unfortunately, I overlooked the instruction from "askubuntu" - I am still learning Linux, and still I am amazed. But the installation is successful.
