open gslapt and hit the update button
Then search for k3b
click the checkbox on the left and select install

_or_

From a terminal as root

Code: [Select]
# slapt-get --update
# slapt-get --install k3b

Dear MOElnx,
Issued the command slapt-get --install k3b

The out put is:

k3b is already up to date

But cant open the programme - not seen in anyof the menu and also cannot run the programme from terminal  What went wrong
{I am comparatively new to Linux}
Thanks !

I believe k3b has some dependencies that maybe haven't been met - kde, specifically.  Have a look here to see the necessary requirements: http://k3b.plainblack.com/requirements

I believe the reason for it not being included with Standard is due to the KDE dependency.

If you installed k3b using slapt-get or gslapt, it should have taken care of the deps.

My guess is that it could be a bad .desktop file

try executing k3b as user in a terminal

look out for any error messages and post back

BTW, the full requirements for the k3b package are listed in it's meta data
ftp://ftp-osl.osuosl.org/pub/vectorlinux/veclinux-5.8/testing/kde/k3b-1.0.1-i586-1vl58.meta

Dear MoE-lnx,

By isuing the command    user$ k3b,    I get the following output -


k3b: error while loading shared libraries: libkparts.so.2: cannot open object file: no such file or directory


How to proceed ?

Sounds like you're missing kdelibs

Code: [Select]
# slapt-get --install kdelibs

I agree with M0E-linux.  In addition you'll need updated dvd+rw tools if you want to burn DVDs.  The updated packag in in our patches repository.  Here is the catch:  patches is NOT included in your /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc file by default.  There are two solutions:

1. Install a newer version of slapt-get currently in the testing repository, or
2. Add the following line to your /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc file:
Quote
SOURCE=ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/vectorlinux/veclinux-5.8/patches/

I, personally, would recommend #2.

Dear Moe-lnx,

issued the command --#slapt-get --install kdelibs   The out put is given below:

Reading package lists ...... Done
Excluding Kdelibs use --ignore-dep to override
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
arts: Depends: qt >= 3.3.7 -i5865vl58
The following packages have been EXCLUDED:
Kdelibs
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed0 to remove and 1 not upgraded
Done   What to do  ?     Using VL5.8 standard

That won't do it.  You need to enable your patches repository as I described above to upgrade qt to 3.3.7.

2. Add the following line to your /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc file:
Code: [Select]
SOURCE=ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/vectorlinux/veclinux-5.8/patches/

Then you need to update your package listing.  Only then can you install kdelibs.  The two steps are:
Quote
slapt-get --update
slapt-get --install kdelibs

Since arts and qt are dependencies of kdelibs all will be upgraded or installed.

One of two things went wrong:

1. You have an error (typo) on the line

-or-

2.  You lost connectivity to the ftp server.

I can't say which from here.  Check and make sure every character is right in the /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc file.

From what I remember, upgrading qt can fail because it needs mysql which is in the extra repository (although I ight be wrong).
If you haven't done this already, the source ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/vectorlinux/veclinux-5.8/extra/ should be added (and enabled) in your SOURCES tab in  the preferences in gslapt (or added to the file /etc/slapt-get/slaptgetrc).

For me the best way to do it is to have the packages, patches, extra, and testing repositories added and then enabling or disabling them in gslapt as needed. Usually, I just keep patches and extra enabled when doing an upgrade; and the testing repository enabled for installing specific packages that I would like to try.

Hi all,

Installed k3b from Gslapt.   But it is not listed in the menu.. How to include it under the menu   ?
