Installation / Re: cannot install ANY .deb pa...
Last post by duststuff - March 18, 2024, 03:00:22 AM
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.
Sparky applications / weird anacron issue
Last post by joealuminium - March 17, 2024, 09:18:15 PM

I've just installed SparkyLinux (SparkyLinux 7.3)on my main PC and I had a weird issue with anacron.
It didn't appear to do anything.

I had set up a couple of backup scripts one in /etc/cron.daily and one in /etc/cron.monthly they work fine and run as they should with run-parts /etc/cron.daily but not when invoked by anacron, nothing happens. No timestamp files were created in /var/spool/anacron.

When I ran anacron -u from the command line again no timestamp files were created. After a bit of digging and removing and installing anacron I discovered that /usr/sbin/anacron was a symbolic link to /bin/true and there was a file in /usr/sbin called anacron.orig.anacron. When I removed anacron from the system the file /usr/sbin/anacron.orig.anacron was removed. It reappeared when I installed anacron.

I removed the symbolic link from /usr/sbin/anacron to /bin/true and created a symbolic link to anacron.orig.anacron and now everything appears to work.

Is this intentional? A known issue? or an oversight.

Hi I've just joined the Forum but I've been using SparkyLinux for a while now on my old kit. I've just done a parallel install on my main PC with the intention of switching from Lubuntu.

We'll see how I get on using it on a daily basis.

Sparky applications / Xarchiver's 'Extract' Options ...
Last post by duststuff - March 10, 2024, 12:00:19 PM
I've noticed that Xarchiver's 'Extract' options don't work in the PcMan file manager's context menu, and am wondering if this is perhaps a bug. They work fine with the default Thunar file manager. I've tried with both the 'pcmanfm' package and the 'pcmanfm-sparky' package. My workaround for now is to install / use the 'file-roller' package ('Archive Manager'), which works fine for this.

Sparky APTus  --  does it still exist?

No, there is Sparky APTus AppCenter instead now.

QuoteWhat is APTus AppCenter?
It is improved APTus, still Yad based, but with HTML technology, and still as small, fast and lightweight as possible.

Thank you.
0ther / Here is Practical Explanation ...
Last post by Bhujagottamah - March 08, 2024, 02:17:31 PM
Practical Explanation ( For Example ) :- `1st of all can you tell me every single seconds detail from that time when you born ?? ( i need every seconds detail ?? that what- what you have thought and done on every single second )

can you tell me every single detail of your `1 cheapest Minute Or your whole hour, day, week, month, year or your whole life ??

if you are not able to tell me about this life then what proof do you have that you didn't forget your past ? and that you will not forget this present life in the future ?

that is Fact that Supreme Lord Krishna exists but we posses no such intelligence to understand him.
there is also next life. and i already proved you that no scientist, no politician, no so-called intelligent man in this world is able to understand this Truth. cuz they are imagining. and you cannot imagine what is god, who is god, what is after life etc.
for example :Your father existed before your birth. you cannot say that before your birth your father don,t exists.

So you have to ask from mother, "Who is my father?" And if she says, "This gentleman is your father," then it is all right. It is easy.
Otherwise, if you makes research, "Who is my father?" go on searching for life; you'll never find your father.

( now maybe...maybe you will say that i will search my father from D.N.A, or i will prove it by photo's, or many other thing's which i will get from my mother and prove it that who is my Real father.{ So you have to believe the authority. who is that authority ? she is your mother. you cannot claim of any photo's, D.N.A or many other things without authority ( or ur mother ).

if you will show D.N.A, photo's, and many other proofs from other women then your mother. then what is use of those proofs ??} )

same you have to follow real authority. "Whatever You have spoken, I accept it," Then there is no difficulty. And You are accepted by Devala, Narada, Vyasa, and You are speaking Yourself, and later on, all the acaryas have accepted. Then I'll follow.
I'll have to follow great personalities. The same reason mother says, this gentleman is my father. That's all. Finish business. Where is the necessity of making research? All authorities accept Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. You accept it; then your searching after God is finished.

Why should you waste your time?
all that is you need is to hear from authority ( same like mother ). and i heard this truth from authority " Srila Prabhupada " he is my spiritual master.
im not talking these all things from my own.

in this world no `1 can be Peace full. this is all along Fact.

cuz we all are suffering in this world 4 Problems which are Disease, Old age, Death, and Birth after Birth.

tell me are you really happy ?? you can,t be happy if you will ignore these 4 main problem. then still you will be Forced by Nature.

if you really want to be happy then follow these 6 Things which are No illicit s.ex, No g.ambling, No d.rugs ( No tea & coffee ), No meat-eating ( No onion & garlic's )

5th thing is whatever you eat `1st offer it to Supreme Lord Krishna. ( if you know it what is Guru parama-para then offer them food not direct Supreme Lord Krishna )

and 6th " Main Thing " is you have to Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare ".
If your not able to follow these 4 things no illicit s.ex, no g.ambling, no d.rugs, no meat-eating then don,t worry but chanting of this holy name ( Hare Krishna Maha-Mantra ) is very-very and very important.

Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare " and be happy.

if you still don,t believe on me then chant any other name for 5 Min's and chant this holy name for 5 Min's and you will see effect. i promise you it works And chanting at least 16 rounds ( each round of 108 beads ) of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra daily.
Here is no Question of Holy Books quotes, Personal Experiences, Faith or Belief. i accept that Sometimes Faith is also Blind. Here is already Practical explanation which already proved that every`1 else in this world is nothing more then Busy Foolish and totally idiot.
every `1 is already Blind in this world and if you will follow another Blind then you both will fall in hole. so try to follow that person who have Spiritual Eyes who can Guide you on Actual Right Path. ( my Authority & Guide is my Spiritual Master " Srila Prabhupada " )
if you want to see Actual Purpose of human life then see this link : ( triple w ( d . o . t ) asitis ( d . o . t ) c . o . m  {Bookmark it })
read it complete. ( i promise only readers of this book that they { he/she } will get every single answer which they want to know about why im in this material world, who im, what will happen after this life, what is best thing which will make Human Life Perfect, and what is perfection of Human Life. ) purpose of human life is not to live like animal cuz every`1 at present time doing 4 thing which are sleeping, eating, s.ex & fear. purpose of human life is to become freed from Birth after birth, Old Age, Disease, and Death.
