get NO RESPONSE from gdebi.

any one know how to fix ?


Only have time for a general answer right now. I'm assuming that you're talking about something like double-clicking on a DEB file and expecting that gdebi would open and install it, and that this has worked for you in the past on this system.

I've had this problem with a DEB file in the past and it turned out to be a dependency issue, but yours could be some other issue.

First thing you want to do is try to install the DEB file via the terminal. In this case, I would first confirm that 'debi' is the CLI (command-line interface / terminal) version of 'gdebi' (I think it is), and then use that. (You can use 'man debi' or an online search to figure out the command you need if you don't know it.) The reason for doing this is because it should give you output in the terminal about problems / warnings / errors so that you know what's going on, which will then help you know how to solve it.

If it does seem like it's a dependency issue (missing dependencies, etc.), I would first try to 'fix' missing / broken packages (I think that's what it's called). Here's the Sparky wiki section on that: .

Hope that helps and you're able to get it figured out.
