Installation on Ubuntu 10.10


  • Anonymous

    I'm trying to install ExE on my Ubuntu 10.10 and its not working. Aparently there its a dependencies problem… I'll copy-paste terminal feedback of my last try:

    elipe@Marcelino:~/Escritorio$ sudo dpkg -i python2.5-exe_1.04.0.3532-ubuntu1_i386.deb 
    (Leyendo la base de datos ...  00%

    Desempaquetando el reemplazo de python2.5-exe ...
    dpkg: problemas de dependencias impiden la configuración de python2.5-exe:

      El paquete `python-zopeinterface' no está instalado.

    Nota, seleccionando «python-zope.interface» en vez de «python-zopeinterface»
    python-zope.interface ya está en su versión más reciente.
    Tal vez quiera ejecutar 'apt-get -f install' para corregirlo:
    Los siguientes paquetes tienen dependencias incumplidas:
     python2.5-exe : Depende: python-zopeinterface (>= 3.0.0-6)
    E: Dependencias incumplidas. Intente 'apt-get -f install' sin paquetes (o especifique una solución).

    It's in Spanish; it seems to me that the problem is that ExE depends on "python-zopeinterface", but in Ubuntu the name for that is "python-zope.interface"… I'm really not sure that this is the problem, but I'm pretty sure that I can't install ExE using straigh forward methods… Hope that someone can help me :)

  • Hi,

    You should try newest DEB available: exe_1.04.1.3601-ubuntu1_i386.deb which solves dependencies correctly, not the old '3532' you are trying to install.

  • Did you fix this? I have the same problem.

    Yes, this was fixed on 2009-11-05.  Use a recent version of eXe (such as exe_1.04.1.3605-ubuntu1_i386.deb) and you shouldn't have this problem.

    I have this very same problem. Using the latest installer on ubuntu 11.10 (oneiric)

    Anyone having the same issues? Any fixes?
    Weird that a fixed problem returns?

    Are you sure there isn't something else going on?  I installed exe_1.04.1.3605-ubuntu1_i386.deb in a fresh 11.10 installation a few weeks ago and didn't have any problems.

    What is the exact error message you get during the installation?

    I have a Dutch version so errormessages are in Dutch too. The errormessages are all python dependency messages:

    Can't edit my post so I have to doublepost.

    I checked the dependencies and all dependencies ARE installed with higher versions than the dependencies indicate

    exe:i386 is afhankelijk van python-zopeinterface (>= 3.0.0-6) | python-zope.interface

    Shouldn't that be python-zope.interface?? (as stated before in this thread)

    A bit of a bummer, but the windows version (3590) works under wine. However, I would strongly prefer to have a native ubuntu package that works…..
    If you need any further debugging data, please say so.
