System upgrading / Re: Skype Install / Upgrade 'B...
Last post by Henry1 - June 14, 2024, 11:38:56 AM
Hi Dustin,

I understand the bug you reported in your topic but I was just explaining (personal opinion) why I won't use Snap or Flatpak to download Skype; while upgrading the system yesterday, I got an update for Skype (I opened another topic asking Pavroo) which I don't understand, maybe related to the bug of updating Skype without having its repo enabled (mine is disabled).

Best Regards,

Henry

Yes, Henry, I understand that, but that is not the bug I'm reporting in this topic. And unless Microsoft changes their policy on this, you may be waiting a long time for a solution that involves a DEB install file for Skype. :-) Cheers, ---Dustin

Even Timeshift didn't help. APTus is not useable anymore for me.

Yes. I am sure Dustin.

There is an output of sparky-aptus-appcenter in terminal.

Gtk-Message: 04:34:00.985: Failed to load module "xapp-gtk3-module"
Overriding existing handler for signal 10. Set JSC_SIGNAL_FOR_GC if you want WebKit to use a different signal
Gtk-Message: 04:34:01.187: Failed to load module "xapp-gtk3-module"

I have installed this package but APTus is still a blank page.

Hi Pavroo,

Upgrading the system I received an update for Skype but the release is always 8.109.0.209 (the latest stable version for Linux Snap is 8.19.0.201 while the latest might be ready soon 8.120.76.101) ; this is for future updates without Microsoft's deb.files or for not slowing down when looking for updates? Thank you in advance.

Best regards
Henry

Hi Dustin,

The problem is that Microsoft has suddenly stopped the deb.files for Skype forcing (typical from Microsoft) users to download via Snap (Linux Mint has blocked by default Snap for privacy and security reasons); I will unistall the old version of Skype's APTus App center and use it via browser waiting for a solution.

Hi Dustin,

thank you for your quick and helpful response!

Quote from: duststuff on June 13, 2024, 11:56:22 AMHi Linuxuser, :-)

You could try finding out what the terminal command is to run the APTus AppCenter and then try running it from the terminal. That may produce output in the terminal that could help you figure out what the problem is and how to resolve it.


Yes, that's a good advice what I would have done next, as soon as I will get back to my old Sparky machine (in the next days).

I will further investigate that issue more thoroughly and keep you posted. Moreover, I send you later my hardware details from 'inxi'.

Best regards
to you all,

Patrick


PS. Dustin, you do a good job for the community of this forum, as I can see by your last posts. :-)

Hi, Henry. I'm assuming the best way to fix this bug is for the developer(s) to not allow the Debian version of Skype to be installed via APTus AppCenter, and then to also somehow prevent (or help users to know how to prevent) the repo of the Debian version of Skype from unnecessarily slowing down the update process. (Just to clarify, the bug I'm addressing with this topic is the Skype repo's interference with the update process, not trying to find a new way of installing a Debian version of Skype.) ---Dustin

Hi lukand, :-)

I'm guessing it's going to be difficult for anyone to be able to help you unless you provide more information. Some questions / comments:

1. There's a way to look at the history of your system's updates, which might help your troubleshooting if that's the issue. If you don't know how to do this, I'm guessing it wouldn't take long to find out how via an online search (BTW, using 'debian' rather than 'sparky' might give you more helpful hits). (You can also check out the wiki for one or more terminal commands you can run if you suspect that something went wrong with your system updates and/or there are broken packages, etc.)

2. How are you transferring these files? USB? Some sort of wireless connection? If there are options on the phone for choosing whether you want to use a connection for file transfer or something else, are those set appropriately? If there are multiple ways that you can transfer files, have you tried all of them to see if any work?

3. Have you tried doing a restart?

4. When you say it's impossible to transfer files, what does that actually mean? Or in other words, what are the contextual details? Is your PC not able to see the device at all when it's connected? Does it see it, but the transfer doesn't work for some reason? Does it attempt to do the transfer and then fail?

5. Do you have enough space on the memory card for the files you're trying to transfer?

6. What's the make/model of your smartphone?

7. What type of memory card is it?

8. Is the phone serving some other purpose while you are trying to transfer the files? (eg. I have a phone that can be used to provide internet to a PC via USB tethering, but when you are doing this you're not able to use that USB connection for file transfers).

I'm not sure that each of the above is actually relevant to your problem, but those are the types of things I'd be looking at if I was trying to troubleshoot it.

Cheers,
Dustin

Hi Dustin,

In case of need I will use Skype via browser as I don't trust at all Snap while Skype via Flathub is too heavy and is "unverified"...I think this bug will be difficult to fix.

Henry
