Hi,

 

I tried installing the following programs but could not install any of them: QCMA, psvimgtools, pkg2zip.

 

  • QCMA

I strictly face this error if I attempt to install it via the deb package: Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libvitamtp5 (>= 2.5.5)

 

Nothing happens when I run this command:

sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/codestation/xUbuntu_18.04/ /' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/home:codestation.list"

and I get "Unable to locate package qcma" after running these two commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install qcma

The output can be found here

 

  • PSVIMGTOOLS

I downloaded the following files, but have no idea how to install it (or if I need to install it to use the program). "psvimgtools-0.1-linux64.zip" and "dump_partials.vpk".

 

  • PKG2ZIP

I downloaded the zip archive " pkg2zip_64bit.zip" but it contained only an exe file, so I removed it and downloaded "Source code (tar.gz)". Then I extracted the folder and ran the lines of code below after cd'ing the path of the file.

./configure
make
make install

First, I got this error: "bash: ./configure: No such file or directory". Then it said "make: Nothing to be done for 'all'." and last but not least got this one: "make: *** No rule to make target 'install'.  Stop.".

For your information, I managed to run the command "make" for one time, but it did not change anything.

 

Any help is appreciated,

Thank you.

 

 

UPDATE: QCMA is installed, but I still need to install the other two programs.

 

UPDATE 2: I also managed to install psvimgtools. In addition, I installed another app as alternative to pkg2zip. Hence, I need no help anymore, thank you.

Don't take this the wrong way, but you look like you're employing the Windoze method for obtaining software.....i.e., hunt around the web for what you want.

 

That's not the recommended way to do things with Linux. Most distros maintain large repositories of software that is guaranteed to work with them, and which is regularly audited to make sure it is malware-free, and, more importantly, remains that way.

 

However:-

 

Package (1) :- It looks like an unresolvable dependency problem.....which generally means that particular dependency is not in the official repos.

 

Package (2) :- Like you, no idea on that one.

 

Package (3) :- Quite simply, you need the development tools installed to be able to compile from source. I know how that works for my distro ('Puppy' Linux)), but haven't got a clue how you'd go about obtaining it in the mainstream distros. Somebody else should be able to help with that.

 

 

Mike.  :wink:

Oh, sorry, I forgot to specify that. I am currently running Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon.

Nothing happens when I run this command


Do you mean nothing happens that you can see?
Please post the output of this command:
ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

...I am currently running Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon.


The packages you are trying to download are from the OpenSUSE repositories. It may be helpful if you explain what you want to do, as someone may know of equivalent software that is already in the Linux Mint repositories, which will be much easier to install.

You can find the output in this link and I gladly inform you that I managed to install QCMA, leaving 2 apps behind to install.

Thanks for the updates. Pleased to hear you got them installed.
