Re: Adding MX Linux tools to Debian

#31 Post by sgosnell »

If you read my posts above, I know how to list the packages in a repository. But there are thousands of packages. I was just looking for an easy way to find the unique MX packages, since most of them are identical to the Debian repository. I can easily list either, or both, packages, but that doesn't tell me what I want to know. That data may not exist, but I am interested in seeing it, because that would tell me whether or not it's worth adding it.
Take my advice, I'm not using it.

You could go look in their repository in a browser. Only way I can think of to find the packages without adding mx to your sources.
Once you add and update the MX repo, there are several ways to check what is available from there. It can be removed from sources without installing anything if no packages pique your interest.
You can just use Synaptic in the Origin tab.
Or search with

Code: Select all

apt search mx
Or grep the local packages list

Code: Select all

grep -h "Package:" /var/lib/apt/lists/*mx*
Or list all available packages with "mx" in their title

Code: Select all

apt list --all-versions *mx*
Simples! :wink: 8)

Listing the MX packages lists almost the entire Debian repository. It's useless. I've done it. It's a very long list of packages, and for most the difference between the Debian and MX package is that the name has mx added if it's from MX. I'm not going to compare more than a thousand packages to find this out.
Take my advice, I'm not using it.

Again bottomline, if you cant figure something out regards doing just about anything gnu/nix, you simply need to google more. Have some rough ideas but not doing all the typing and testing to do something or show someone how to do something i really dont need- care about. This is a tute about adding Mx tools, not mx pkgs etc etc. Sorry @Head_on for participating in thread-jacking to this extent. Either way folks its not that big a deal, want Mx tools on Debian, Head_on has it covered. :)

Synaptic can sort packages based on origin--I am sure that apt or aptitude can do that on the command line, but am not going to search that for you.

MX uses the Debian repos, with its own repos on top like icing on the cake. We have our own native mx* packages, many backports of upstream Debian packages in main or testing, many many packages that aren't in Debian yet or that we improve for our version (Foliate, Strawberry, MystiQ, Pale Moon, and Cawbird are some that I maintain just off the top of my head), so I have to dispute that MX is "just Debian with makeup" and that the packages are "99.99% pure" Debian. :roll: Ow, my eyes are rolled so far back they got stuck.

Most of the native MX packages begin with mx-, so that's another way to sort them...I can remember a couple that don't, like aptgpg or apt-notifier, but those are just utilities. Oh wait, we have a metapackage to manage the mx-apps and remove obsolete versions, called "mx-apps":

Code: Select all

Depends: bash-config, mx-bootrepair, mx-boot-options, mx-conky, mx-codecs, mx-datetime, mx-docs, mx-menu-editor, mx-network-assistant, mx-packageinstaller, mx-remaster, mx-remastercc, mx-repo-manager, mx-select-sound, mx-snapshot, mx-system-sounds, mx-tools, mx-tweak, mx-usb-unmounter, mx-user, mx-viewer, mx-welcome, mx-live-usb-maker, live-kernel-updater, live-usb-maker, mx-idevice-mounter, ddm-mx, conky-toggle-mx, formatusb, mx-cleanup
Breaks: docs-mx, install-meta-mx, installer-mx, remaster-mx, switchuser-mx, user-management-mx
Replaces: docs-mx, install-meta-mx, installer-mx, remaster-mx, switchuser-mx, user-management-mx
Some of those also have dependencies on other native MX packages.

So, as I suspected, the information I was looking for does not exist. That's okay, I was just asking if it did. Lots of hand-wringing and pearl-clutching just to arrive at "No".

Of course the info you want exists, mayhaps not in a neat little index but certainly exists, put it together for yourself. Again .. only an outline of rough idea, while doing something like "apt update" to refresh pkg list, clearly apt is doing that, likely it's updating a list of available pkgs in whichever repos are in sources. Thus that's kept in a file somewhere and such a file can be found/copied, then more repo's could be added, the list-file could be update'd again, copied and these files can be compared with basic nix cmds and utilities. Showing the similarities(shared pkgs) + what's different in them ... Certainly ways to make such files from xyz-repo's quickly-easily for whomever wishes.

Noted: Should be all of a couple cmds/secs to get a list of what's in the Mx repo's any repo's. Are a bunch of relevant cmds/tools, apt-list or who knows how many others, it's gnu/Linux ... when isn't there TONS of ways to go about doing whatever tasks fairly easily, has to be many methods of doing this type of thing, I just don't have enough of an interest to work one of them out and acid test the dang thing, other brain farts, if someone were really motivated to know such a thing, install a base Debian in ie: KVM and same for MX and make a copy of the "dpkg -l" output, in such VM's "dpkg -l > debian" and "dpkg -l > mx" etc, compare these files as stated above, you have the pearl list you want. :D Don't remember the cmds, are several but remember doing this to see the differences in kernel .config files-options used between various so called "desktop performance" vs stock kernels. To see what the maintainers were opting to set.

Still also as noted we are crapping up a how-to Head_on took his time to put together and clearly this is not good netiquette. Start a damn thread on anything and all things MX if that's your desire. Fark ! Ah ... doubt anyone is losing sleep over this regardless. :P

If you are just curious to see what version of a package MX has versus Debian and many other distros, just try Repology. Here's Foliate, for example:

Just revisiting this thread for a different reason and after reading through, realised that the list of MX specific tools is right there on their website, viz.

Many of these Tools were developed specifically for MX, while some were forked from existing antiX apps or are existing antiX apps; a couple were imported with permission from outside sources.

Live
Live USB maker
Live-usb kernel updater
Remaster tool
Snapshot
Maintenance
Boot options, now expanded to install grub themes
Boot repair
Cleanup
Menu editor
User manager
Setup
Nvidia driver installer
Codecs installer, now includes updated S3 texture packs
Conky
Network Assistant
Select sound
System sounds
Tweak
Welcome
System keyboard
System locales
Software
Fix GPG keys
Package installer: Popular Applications, Debian Stable and Backports, MX Test, Flatpaks
Repo manager
Utilities
Quick System Info
iDevice Mounter
For packages already installed but where there are later versions in MX the methods outlined in foregoing posts can work, or Synaptic can just show you upgradeable packages when the MX Repo is used like a backport.

Or search with

Code: Select all

apt search mx
Or grep the local packages list

Code: Select all

grep -h "Package:" /var/lib/apt/lists/*mx*
Or list all available packages with "mx" in their title

Code: Select all

apt list --all-versions *mx*
Reading this thread just out of curiosity and just wanted to say that any of those commands will list whatever package containing "m", "x" or both in their names, so it doesn't list "mx-linux" specific pkgs but way many more.

No. They will show results where "mx" appears together not where "m" or "x" appear anywhere. The apt search will also show any results where "mx" appears in the description rather than the package name, of which there are quite a few occurences which have nothing to do with MX Linux.

What you did there proves what I said. The apt search and list-versions return every package available with the string "mx" in its title.
The grep lists everything with the string "Package" from any file in /var/lib/apt/lists/ which includes "mx" in the title, basically all the packages you have available from the MX repo.
MX packages don't necessarily have "mx" in their title, nor do packages with "mx" in their title have to have any relation to MX Linux.

You said
No. They will show results where "mx" appears together not where "m" or "x" appear anywhere
And what I did proves that yes, the commands get "mx" but also any other word with "m" or "x" in its name, anywhere. The only one, now that I took a second look at it, that does match more "mx" occurrences is "apt list --all-versions" command, keep in mind I didn't post the whole output. FWIW, I'm not trying to say nor implying that they're useless or any of that sort, but that saying they only match pkgs with "mx" in the title is not entirely correct.

Re: Adding MX Linux tools to Debian

#46 Post by stevepusser »

Packages in the MX repo do have "mx" as their origin instead of "stable", "unstable", etc., and Synaptic seems to be able to distinguish them, so I'd try the command line method to find those instead of the package names themselves. It should be the same as finding all buster-backports packages, for example.

I don't have aptitude installed to try but "dpkg --list" does show all installed MX pkgs:
