Report on Ralf's Woody Debs
Currently I'm running Ralf's 3.1RC6 Woody debs on a Sarge system. On
the whole, they work really well - major thanks to everyone involved
for the great work done so far. However, I've collected a list of
bugs/requests/questions which I thought I'd post:
1. Truetype fonts look quite bad (really 'dirty' looking - like the
bytecode interpreter isn't on) in 3.1RC6, compared to Mozilla which
looks great. Truetype under 3.0.5a looked fine - just like Mozilla
still does. Currently I have libfreetype6 2.1.2-9 installed.
2. The K3b package. I had to manually install libvorbisenc, and then
manually create links for libvorbisfile.so.0 and libvorbisenc.so.0
but eventually I figured it out. Am I correct in thinking that these
problems occur only because I'm running Sarge and not straight Woody?
Anyway, it runs nicely as a regular user, but as root I get the
_KDE_IceTransmkdir: Owner of /tmp/.ICE-unix should be set to root
kio (KService*): WARNING: Invalid Service : Internet/KOrn.desktop
Id 'kde2.2/r1' was already in done-list!
Id 'kde3.0/r1' was already in done-list!
mcop warning: user defined signal handler found for SIG_PIPE,
/tmp/mcop-chris is not owned by user
Mutex destroy failure: Device or resource busy
and it fails to run. Any ideas what might be wrong? Should I report
this to http://k3b.sourceforge.net ?
3. The oKle package - it's great of you to provide all these
convenient debs! I do have a problem with it, however. When I compile
oKle myself from source, I simply have to type 'okle' to start it up.
With your new debian package, however, there is no 'okle' executable.
There is something called okle_gui, but executing it results in the
Please do not call the ogle_gui binary directly!
Instead copy it to /usr/lib/ogle/ogle_gui and then run ogle.
I suppose that I could follow these instructions and get things going,
but I shouldn't have to. I'm not sure why things aren't set up (like
they are when compiling from source) so that you just have to run
'okle' and it works. No conflict with ogle-gui either.
4. Package requests - could you create debs for kbiff
(http://www.granroth.org/kbiff/) and a handy little utility for
tweaking xvideo output, written by the Ogle guys, xvattr
(http://www.dtek.chalmers.se/groups/dvd/downloads.shtml)? Those are
the only two KDE programs I use that aren't packaged... which is
pretty amazing :)
5. Does anyone know if it is possible to revert to the old 3.0 layout
for KDM? The new way KDM is arranged looks pretty bad, at least to
Otherwise, everything I've tried works as it should. Many thanks.
