Does gdebi ( the gdebi-gtk GUI) work for anybody on Buster?

Postby stevepusser » 2019-07-08 21:12

I installed it in a 32-bit Buster XFCE install in a virtual machine in order to install some local debs, but it crashes after I click the install button. I ended up using the apt command in the terminal to do so, but some people are allergic to the CLI.

It has the same issue in the Buster-based MX 19 alpha, reported by all testers. I wonder if it has to be updated to use pkexec or something.

It's been working fine for me on a GNOME 64-bit install that's about two months old. Maybe a new bug or one that only effects 32-bit systems?

gdebi worked fine for me a few days ago to install some pkgs on a 32bit Devuan Beowulf in a VM. Of course, there is not one systemd file on that install and we have elogind and have worked on eudev and other things. No surprise it works on gnome. Shall not comment (much) further . . . LOL!

I respect you following your ideology and spruiking Devuan but your snipes against Debian are becoming rather tedious. Live and let live, dude.

I got deepin-deb-installer to work on MX 19 alpha, so we can use that if we can't figure out the gdebi issue. It only pulls in a couple extra megabytes of packages.

Does gdebi work on antiX? If so that would narrow things down a bit to desktopy culprits. BTW, I also use Xfce.

I have two Buster installations.

On XFCE gdebi works fine if you start it from the menu, but crashes if started by right clicking on a .deb file.

On KDE it won't start at all.

I'm running a MATE desktop on Buster, and gdebi is working just fine. If I click on a deb file in Caja (the MATE file manager), it comes up normally. If I launch it from the menu, it comes up normally.

Yes, on all of my buster images it has a policy actions file. On my one remaining stretch it does not.

Correction, it works fine in my sequence of browsing to it with a root thunar,. Works, and linitian complains it's root. Browsed to with a user Thunar it opens, looks fine, and disappears clicking install, ie crashes.

That has changed.

Invoking from menu (gdebi-gtk %f) I'd think the polkit action file <allow_active>yes</allow_active> wouldn't matter, and navigating to a user rights file, it does work fine - no password.
Navigate to root file system area, it also works fine -no password required.

Invoking from a FM does not work unless a root FM. So now I'm on a tangent to get spacefm to work right...

The GUI uses policykit already.

It doesn't work for me under GNOME, gdebi-gtk will launch but when I attempt to install a .deb with it I see this error in the terminal from which it is launched:

Yes, crashing when you start it from a file manager with a right-click on a deb file, and then hit the "Install" button, is what I'm talking about. So it does happen to Buster users, too.

I don't use it myself either--I actually use a KDE service menu in Dolphin to install debs myself with apt, since it's faster and can do arbitrary numbers of debs in one swell foop. We ship MX with the same type of user action in Thunar, too, but I was thinking of users that want to use another file manager besides those two.

Maybe Ubuntu has a fix in their version--let me take a look.
