To my knowledge I have these other possible FF dependencies installed:
libmujs1
libssh-4
libssl1.1

And also are installed on this system should be (as I just checked):
libc6
libgcc-s1
libgssapi-krb5-2
libssl3
zlib1g

The only other thing I can think of although it is far out there is my Bios may possibly be 6hrs ahead of my current time... I should probably check that now.

The system says I already have libnss3 & libX11-xcb installed.

Using Synaptic I reinstalled libx11-xcb then also reinstalled libnss3. Then tried to install Librewolf via Synaptic. Nevertheless this did not work, receiving the same "obsoleted error" I posted in post#1 above.

Is there a correct way to reinstall these 2 "missing" dependencies using the terminal that won't also nuke all of their numerous dependencies?

This is the output I still get from "sudo apt install librewolf":

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 librewolf : Depends: libnss3 (>= 2:3.80~) but 2:3.79-1 is to be installed
             Depends: libx11-xcb1 (>= 2:1.8.1) but 2:1.7.5-1 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I don't think I am missing these 2 dependencies, however.

I had deleted the Firefox installation that comes pre-installed with SparkyLinux using the complete removal / purge method. It is possible that this is all the result of me having completely removing the Firefox that comes bundled with SparkyLinux? I ALSO downloaded Firefox-ESR, then uninstalled via complete removal as well. Currently using Brave.

After posting this I will try to find/download the 2 missing dependencies, then attempt to install Librewolf. I will post the result.

General discussion / Installing Sparkylinux fails
Last post by Paul33 - August 04, 2022, 11:36:20 AM
My Micromax Canvas Laptab LT666W has an Intel Atom 1.33 GHz processor, 2 GB of DDR3 RAM, and 32 GB of eMMC storage. I attempted to install the Sparkylinux minimal CLI version, but it failed since I was unable to connect to a power supply (single micro USB port where I had plugged in my bootable USB with an OTG cable). After that, I attempted to install using the Calamares installer, the advanced GUI installer, and the minimum GUI installer. With the latter, I encountered a bootloader installation issue, however with the former, I kept booting into the BIOS setup. Boot repair was run to reinstall EFI, but a notice stating "Locked NVRAM identified" appeared. What ought I to do? I have tried every tip I could grasp from the Internet.

Post your output if still can't install it.

Newbie questions / Re: [SOLVED]Calindori via Git,...
Last post by SparkyBookworm - August 04, 2022, 05:29:07 AM
The end result:

This worked, thanks! I only had to download some extra packages to get the file "KF5Notifications" which was missing. The program 'calindori' so far seems to execute just fine. I'm sure this would work on Ubuntu, as I am using Debian based Sparky7 Kde at the moment. I hosed my Ubuntu yesterday by downloading and deleting too many packages. –

Lesson learned: always make sure you have ALL your dependencies pre-installed beforehand!

I use XFCE now btw, KDE changes too rapidly for my taste, I prefer a stable desktop.

The solution to compiling this Calindori Pinephone app (btw, there is also an Android apk version that exists for it as well) for desktop linux use is (poorly) posted here:

Sorry, it took so long to post this as the solution was discovered shortly after posting this issue. I am new to linux.

Last post by SparkyBookworm - August 04, 2022, 05:08:19 AM
librewolf:

Package librewolf has no available version, but exists in the database.
This typically means that the package was mentioned in a dependency and never uploaded, has been obsoleted or is not available with the contents of sources.list

Already have tried without success:

sudo apt update
and several other sudo apt upgrade xyz, etc etc..

Stuck using another browser in the meantime. I want to be sure my repos are set up correct, I have not made any adjustments to sources.list since my recent re-installation.

Is the package simply being held back? If so, I can simply wait.

Sparky is the best, thanks.

I am submitting that Discourse grooves better as a forum platform. :-) However, I am not aware of the amount of work that would be needed to migrate.
