Easystroke installation

Postby kingburger » 2018-08-27 10:42

Hello y'all
Ok it's first time I post in a forum just to say I'm really desperate)

I'm trying to install easystroke from source. It's a pity it's not in the repo's I don't understand why.... Easystroke changed my life :lol:
I'm a ubuntu user but changed recently to Debian and it's all nice. But I really need easystroke.
I never understood a lot about compiling apps

I followed https://github.com/thjaeger/easystroke/ ... structions

then I get:
‘group’ is not a member of ‘sigc’

I found some pages about the error:
https://askubuntu.com/questions/932946/ ... nome-17-04

but I don't understand the answers))

I know I don't give much infos but don't know exactly what I should send...
can you help me?

I tried also more or less to install it from the ubuntu .deb package but never succeeded.

Debian GNU/Linux 9

Well, you got lucky there,... https://wiki.debian.org/DontBreakDebian

These packages were built on vanilla Stretch and are compatible: http://mxrepo.com/mx/testrepo/pool/test/e/easystroke/

The easiest way to install a compatible standalone deb is to install gebi and use that to install the deb. You can also use apt on the command line to do so, but it's a bit more technical.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Foliate 1.5.3, Minitube 3.1, wine-staging 4.12, Virtual Box 5.2.32 & 6.0.10, Pale Moon 28.6.1, Waterfox 56.2.12
