[SOLVED] xfce screensaver not found

Postby shogun1234 » 2019-08-30 15:55

When installing xfce screensaver $ apt-cache search xfce | grep screensaver, I find my debian doesn't find anything in repos.

Searching packages looks like it's there https://packages.debian.org/sid/xfce4-screensaver

Code: Select all
$ cat /etc/debian_version
bullseye/sid


Any reason that apt-cache can't find it?

When did you make last update (of available packages by something like apt-get update)?

I have just done update again, but the problem still persist.

Code: Select all
$ sudo apt-get update;
Hit:1 http://repo.steampowered.com/steam precise InRelease
Hit:2 http://security.debian.org testing-security InRelease                             
Hit:3 https://updates.signal.org/desktop/apt xenial InRelease                           
Hit:4 https://repo.skype.com/deb stable InRelease                                       
Get:5 https://cdn-aws.deb.debian.org/debian testing InRelease [109 kB]                   
Hit:6 https://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org testing InRelease                     
Fetched 109 kB in 3s (35.2 kB/s)                   
Reading package lists... Done
$ apt-cache search xfce | grep screensave


Maybe I should use sid instead of testing in source.list?
Code: Select all
deb https://deb.debian.org/debian/ testing main non-free contrib
deb-src https://deb.debian.org/debian/ testing main non-free contrib

deb http://security.debian.org testing-security main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org testing-security main contrib non-free

Of course, as you can see, packages.debian.org: xfce4-screensaver is currently only in sid (unstable), not in bullseye (testing).

Ya'll got bigger problems than that anyway. Two different releases of Ubuntu crap mixed in with Testing. OOF

The U.S. uses the metric system too, we have tenths, hundredths and thousandths of inches :-P
