lightdm-login-chromiumos issue

Postby sowhatislinux » 2020-08-03 22:29

Lately, I've been having a lot of trouble with the lightdm-login-chromiumos package. It seems like it is not correctly/fully installed. When I go
Code: Select all
apt-get install lightdm-login-chromiumos
, It gives me this:
Code: Select all

The error indicates that the file /tmp/filedmobWC.zip downloaded from http://commondatastorage.googleapis.com ... hromiumOS/ is not a valid zip file. Next the post install script from the package uses dpkg --configure but fails as a result of the invalid zip file.

You might
Code: Select all
apt purge your packagename
and then try to reinstall it. If you get the same error then "its on them not you".

Also chromium OS forums would potentially give you better insight into this.

I don't see that package in the Debian repos--how is this a Debian issue?

Where they say "package name", it means the name of your package, the one you want to remove, in this
You might

Code: Select all
Code: Select all
    apt purge your packagename


and then try to reinstall it. If you get the same error then "its on them not you".
case "lightdm-login-chromiumos " eg:
Code: Select all
apt purge lightdm-login-chromiumos

The problem is this lightdm-login-chromiumos is not a Debian package, you need to be asking who ever created this software, and packaged it . It was not packaged correctly. I noticed that as well, in your error message,
Code: Select all
unzip:  cannot find zipfile directory in one of /tmp/filedmobWC.zip or
        /tmp/filedmobWC.zip.zip, and cannot find /tmp/filedmobWC.zip.ZIP, period

Alright, I'm looking for the developer support, and another thing --

I did
Code: Select all
apt purge lightdm-login-chromiumos


Then tried to reinstall, but it says the package does not exist. :oops: :oops: :oops:

This is not a Debian package , nor is it Debian, and beyond the scope of this forum,
Debian User Forums, is for Debian and Debian packages.
Maybe Follow the same instructions you used when you installed it the first time.
But that seems silly, since you now know the package can not be used.
But this time also read this: https://wiki.debian.org/DontBreakDebian
Before trying to install it.

I was thinking the same thing,
but :

Why don't you just use lightdm , that is for Debiab, in Debian repositories ?
https://wiki.debian.org/LightDM
Code: Select all
# apt install lightdm
