In Topic: Theming package dependencies

18 July 2017 - 01:55 PM

Hmm, I don't know what you used to get that list. It seems to me that those are packages that depend on lightdm (aka as Reverse Depends)  and not the list of packages lightdm depends on. Only two of those packages are installed on a default bodhi-linux, the bodhi-lightdm-theme and lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings.

 

Enjoy,

Charles

As stated in the above post:

Only two of those packages are installed on a default bodhi-linux, the bodhi-lightdm-theme and lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings.

All others are not!

I would leave them as they hardly take space and you may need to login through lightdm one day.

 

Enjoy,

Charles

 

PS. Next time you need details on a specific package use

apt-cache showpkg packagename

It is quite complete and states Revers Depends and dependencies in a clear way.

In Topic: 4.2.0 Legacy installer crashes on Dell 700M

Yeah, the upower thing was an option, we had that in a pre-release once and I did not know your exact version.

But my suggestions in post#7 still are valid in case you feel like trying it again. No pressure.  :)

Seems to me that the moksha-engage module might be the better solution as the name-label is separated from the icon as such. You can configure the zooming to be friendly for the eyes and there is no flashing. IMHO this is comfortable for people with bad eyesight.

 

Need more help with engage, just let us know.

Ah, good news maybe. 

Forget my updates above. You are using a 32bit on a laptop and in that case you need a package that is not in the ISO you have. 

Install the package upower in the live-session and the installer will no longer crash.
You will need to install this package in your hdd installation too afterwards.

sudo apt-get install upower

I am glad I could force the same crash on a machine here and debugging showed me a missing file. But the installer did not even start, just stalling some time. But it worked after installing this.

I'm very curious about the exact Bodhi version you are dealing with. Please let me know. We had this issue once in the past and later releases had upower installed by default afaik.

 

Enjoy,

Charles
