[SOLVED] Install the "kde-thumbnailer-epub".

Postby maurilio » 2018-02-04 09:24

Dear Friends,
Is it possible to see the preview of the .epub files also in Debian-Kde? In other distros, I was able to install "kde-thumbnailer-epub", a package that allows me to see these previews. How can I do it in Debian?
I thanks all of you!
Alberto

I thank you.
In a new installation of Debian, I should install the "aptitude" package, or it is already inside the Iso "Stretch 9.0"?
I'm sorry for my "little" English...

You can just use apt or apt-get, aptitude has to be installed.

OP needs the epub thumbnailer, not the deb one. I don't see it in the repos. There's old KDE 4 versions in some PPAs, but only a few rpm distros have the Plasma 5 version: https://pkgs.org/download/kde-thumbnailer-epub

Maybe I could make a Debian package...or an rpm could be converted by the alien program.

I tried to verify the command with aptitude, and this the output:
Code: Select all
burno@burno:~$ aptitude show kde-thumbnailer-deb
bash: aptitude: comando non trovato
burno@burno:~$ su
Password:
root@burno:/home/burno# aptitude show kde-thumbnailer-deb
bash: aptitude: comando non trovato
root@burno:/home/burno#

Alternatively, could this file be useful?
https://store.kde.org/p/1081101
Could it be installable?

In the Debian forum of my country, they gave me the solution to install the
"kde-thumbnailer-epub".
Here is the code:
Code: Select all
script log.txt
su -c "apt-get update"
su -c "apt-get upgrade"
su -c "apt-get install cmake wget build-essential libqt5xmlpatterns5-dev  libarchive-dev libkf5kio-dev extra-cmake-modules libkf5archive-dev"
wget https://github.com/Caig/kde-thumbnailer-epub/archive/master.zip
unzip master.zip
cd kde-thumbnailer-epub-master
# -------
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DKDE_INSTALL_USE_QT_SYS_PATHS=ON -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kf5-config --prefix` ..
make
su -c "make install"
kbuildsycoca5
exit


I thank all of you.

Hmmm..maybe I'll make a deb package from that. I use Dolphin and have a lot of epub files. I found a nice site that shows what repos have any package you ask about:

https://repology.org/metapackage/kde-th ... b/versions

so the world cries out for a Debianized package! :D

OK, after a few failed experiments, I built working Stretch-compatible packages for MX 17. Here are 32 and 64-bit debs (26K zip):

So that Repology link above should show it in MX 17 in a day or so. :D
