RE: Bug#649503: Please package last version and upload it to unstable


if you try to install gnome-orca from sid or experimental you get the

root@bud:~# apt-get install gnome-orca

Reading package lists... Done

Building dependency tree

Reading state information... Done

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have

requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable

distribution that some required packages have not yet been created

or been moved out of Incoming.

The following information may help to resolve the situation:


The following packages have unmet dependencies:

 gnome-orca : Depends: libgail-gnome-module but it is not installable

E: Broken packages

i think it is broken cause of the gnome3 transision

3.2 is reputedly better than 3.0.

I think that's a wise decision.

Debian is moving to Gnome 3.2 anyway, so we don't have a choice at this
point, unless I'm misunderstanding the situation. Gnome-shell depends
ultimately on AT-SPI 2, hence the request for the upgrade.

If you have more than one machine, I suppose you could put the relevant
Gnome-related packages on hold.

Iceweasel is the only X application I care about accessing at the moment.
The rest is not going to affect my work in any way. I run Libreoffice to
convert documents, but I do it from the shell with unoconv, which never
invokes the GUI.

I'm also interested in getting Chromium and ChromeVox running under Debian,
and ATK support for Chromium is reportedly under development as well, so
there will be more choices in the browser space soon. Webkit GTK is another
forthcoming option, but Chromium is clearly the popular candidate.
