Error in gslapt.
htop depends on ncurses >= 5.6-i486-3 (not in the repo, so far as I can see).
Should be rebuilt against 5.6-i486-2.

I can confirm this, same happened on 5.9.1 SOHO.

I've let the packager know.  Hopefully we'll have a replacement package soon.

A revised package with a corrected dependency list has been posted.  Please do try installing this version of htop again.

A potential issue concerns the .desktop file calling xterm.
This implies that the user has xterm installed. If he/she doesn't, it won't start from the menu (although xterm doesn't feature as a dependency):
Code: [Select]
Terminal=false
Exec=xterm -e htop

The previous version instead had:
Code: [Select]
Terminal=true
Exec=htop

Which, I guess, calls the "default terminal", making it a better option.

Ahh. I changed that after hitting a problem with one terminal - think it was KDE Konsole. It wouldn't work from the menu. On the other hand, Xterm is almost always installed, which makes it independent of the DE. Should have added a dep to xterm though. I'll fix that and upload a revised version....

Thanks for picking that up - forgot about the extra dep.

I see. It makes perfect sense.
You had actually made clear that you had modified the .desktop file in the Packagers board, but I only saw it now.

I guess it would be possible to use an environment variable in the .desktop file, maybe:
Code: [Select]
Exec=$TERM htop
In my system, typing that in a console opens htop in xterm.
(Even though I'm using xfce, $TERM is set to xterm and not to the xfce Terminal)

I suppose that would open it in whatever the user decided to be the "default", without adding a mandatory dependency for a particular terminal.

(sorry for nipicking... after all, it is probably the case that almost everyone will have xterm installed)

Just found a problem with my own solution.
If I set $TERM to the xfce Terminal, "$TERM htop" doesn't work, because it needs -x to execute a command.

xterm doesn't need this (and the option is actually -e)

So, not really a general solution for several terminals. Oh, well...
