Re: gdebi not connecting to debian

As a workaround, cd to the directory where you downloaded the deb, run

sudo dpkg -i *.deb
sudo apt-get install -f

Re: gdebi not connecting to debian

Post your sources list:

cat /etc/apt/sources.list

And try to use proper grammar.  wink

If gdebi refuses to install the packages, do it manually:

sudo dpkg -i <package>

If not all dependencies can be fetched:

sudo apt-get install -f

Maybe you also have to update your system before installing new packages:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Also, assure that you use the right .deb packages for your system and architecture when you try to download them from the net (Skype and Google Earth).

Re: gdebi not connecting to debian

hi there,

thanks for all the help. Now that it is connecting, i have repaired broken packages and dependencies and proceeding. There should be no more problems.

Just a quick question while we're at it: debian does not automatically update or check for updates (like ubuntu does) - the user has to do this by himself?

thanks again, have fun

Re: gdebi not connecting to debian

Thank you all,

everything OK now, had multiple problems installing and running stuff, but you just have to use "older" packages and things work out of the box (but I don't know how completely new linux users would manage this...).

As far as the last post: ever since i am off ubuntu, i really appreciate this approach to updating... and pure debian in general. Me happy.

have fun,

f
