[Question] two different versions the same system

Postby Ahmed » Thu Dec 19, 2013 1:25 pm

I already installed version 0.64.0 from my distro repository (LMDE) then I installed the 0.64.1 version .deb package available on the website but I don't know how to run it.

PS: when I write in the terminal:

Code: Select all

dpkg-query -l

it shows in the results that the 0.64.1 version is installed:

Code: Select all

ii  synfigstudio   0.64.0-1     i386         vector-based 2D animation package

Maybe just type synfigstudio in the terminal would be enough?

If it doesn't work, try to know where the executable is. Type:

Code: Select all

$ which synfigstudio


And it would tell you the path to the executable. Then simply write the full path on the terminal to execute synfigstudio.

Anyway, when you installed the 0.64.1 vesion, didn't it warned you to be about to replace the previous 0.64.0 version? If so, the menu entry for Synfig Studio should run the latest version.

yes it warned me, but sounds that it installed both versions, when I open synfig from the main menu (as well as writing synfigstudio in the terminal) it runs the 0.64.0 version.

Code: Select all

which synfigstudio

leads me to the 0.64.0 version path as well.

I discovered I was mistaken, only the 0.64.0 version was installed (I mistaken the 0.64.0-1).

now I removed the 0.64.0 altogether, tried to install the file:
synfigstudio_0.64.1-20131104.8_i386.deb

writing:

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -i synfigstudio_0.64.1-20131104.8_i386.deb


it gave me the following results:

Code: Select all

hi Ahmed,

can you report the output of

Code: Select all

dpkg-query -s synfigstudio


to check the status of the 'synfigstudio' package
If that solved, please edit initial title adding [SOLVED]

Code: Select all

for each doc in [wiki] ;; if not doc.lang.your ;; then translate(doc, lang.your) ;;

Package: synfigstudio Version: 0.64.1-20131104.8 have Status: install ok installed.

pretty good, and should respond wheel when started from the terminal / launch command ALT+F2
you should also have synfigstudio entry in the application menu (under graphics? ... near gimp/inkscape/...)

is'it ok ?

sorry for late reply, I made crazy things last night and ended messing up my whole system and I had to reinstall linux.

now I have the synfigstudio 0.64.1 out of the box, I recommend deleting the topic not to confuse the future users :)

thanks a lot for help.
