Debian Backports Repositories

Debian Etch backports I’ve compiled using pbuilder are on http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo
Please read the file README before using these repositories.

This repository includes all the gnome 2.18 packages backported from debian testing:

deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/gnome218-bpo/ ./

note that I’ve separated compiz fusion packages compiled against these packages, in this repo:
deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/compiz-gnome218-bpo/ ./

Please note that these packages are git snapshots, please use the stable version instead.

The other one includes some miscellaneous packages I backported (k3b, amarok, pidgin, ntfs-3g, uswsup and many more):

deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/misc-backports/ ./

There is also another repository (less tested and more experimental) that includes all xorg 7.3 packages from debian unstable:

deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/incoming/xorg73/ ./

The new compiz and compiz fusion repository:

deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/compiz-debian-backport ./

The old repository of Compiz Fusion 0.6.0 + Compiz core 0.6.2 stable version compiled for pure Etch:

deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/compiz-0.6.0 ./

Note that you should uninstall all the git compiz packages, beryl or other version before installing these packages.
Do not mix compiz packages between different releases/packagers and/or repositories!

Lyx 1.5.x can be found here:

deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/lyx15-bpo ./

and here it is the 1.4.5 version (for the ones who want to stick with the 1.4.x version:

deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/lyx14-bpo ./

dsc and diff.gz of all packages can be found here:

http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/compiz-debian-backport/sources/

http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/compiz-0.6.0/sources/

http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/gnome218-bpo/sources/
http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/misc-backports/sources/

http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/lyx15-bpo/sources/

http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/lyx14-bpo/sources/

The orig.tar.gz are not present due to preserve my disk quota on tuxfamily.org. They are on http://packages.debian.org or http://snapshot.debian.net

Packages are not signed, as I don’t already have a gpg key, apt will give you a warning.
Use this packages at your risk. If something don’t work, please tell me, I’ll try to fix problems when I can.

    hi,

    i’m using Etch and try to use your backport in order to install compiz-fusion. But I get this error message :

    http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/compiz-0.6.0/./Sources.gz 404 Not Found

  2. emiscabpo on

    Do you have added also this string in the sources.list file?

    deb-src http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/compiz-0.6.0 ./

    The warning was surely about that. I’ve fixed this gzipping the file Sources (that was already present).

    deb-src apt lines are only useful if you want to get the source packages using apt-get source.
    Since for space problems, I generally put only the diff and the dsc file and not the orig.tar.gz file, doing this on other repositories you will get errors.

    You can download them manually or ask me for help if you want source packages.

  3. thierry on

    all right, that works !
    I’m not sure, but I think the message error was also about the deb (and not only deb-src). Never mind, my brain was certainly in “404 not found” mode, as it was late 😉

    As I said in my previous message, installation of compiz-fusion with your backport is OK. But I can’t manage it, I got this error message :

    Info: No sexy-python package found, don’t worry it’s optional.
    PyGtk 2.10.0 or later required

    Indeed the python-gtk2 version for Etch is 2.8.6-8, so how do you do to configure your Desktop ? This package has a lot of other packages related to it (libc6, libglib, …) so I don’t know if it is a good idea to try to use the lenny version of python-gtk2 (thttp://packages.debian.org/lenny/python-gtk2)?!

    Furthermore, when launching compiz –replace, I get also these messages :

    – Checking for Xgl: not present.
    – many messages : (emerald:11187): Wnck-WARNING **: Unhandled action type (nil)
    – and this long message :
    GConf backend: There is an unsupported value at path /apps/compiz/plugins/wobbly/screen0/options/friction. Settings from this path won’t be read. Try to remove that value so that operation can continue properly.

    When I open the /var/log/Xorg.0.log, I found this :
    (WW) NVIDIA(0): Option “XAANoOffscreenPixmaps” is not used
    (WW) NVIDIA(0): Option “AlloxGLXWithComposite” is not used
    (WW) NVIDIA(0): Option “DigitalVibrance” is not used
    (WW) NVIDIA(0): Option “EnablePageFlip” is not used
    (WW) NVIDIA(0): Option “UseEditFreqs” is not used

    Finaly, this is my /etc/X11/xorg.conf (only the most important parameters concerning Compiz) :

    EndSection

    Thanks a lot, and sorry for this very long post !

    Sorry I have forgotten one thing, I can’t manage compiz-fusion : “… when I try to launch ccsm” (error with python-gtk as explain)

  6. emiscabpo on

    You can use a backported python-gtk 2.10, it is in the gnome218-bpo repo.

    Perhaps with pure etch, sincerely I’ve not tried….
    Since ccsm is not necessary (you can use gconf-editor), you can use compiz-fusion anyway.

    It seems you have a nvidia driver version <= 8774 that don’t support the texture from pixmap extension. Compiz is not supported with that driver.
    At home, I have an nvidia card, and I use “envy” that packages and installs the latest nvidia driver for Etch (100.14.19 at this moment).

    Option “AddARGBGLXVisuals” “true”
    is the only option required. The log says it’s unused, because that version of the driver you use, simply hasn’t got it.

    GConf backend: There is an unsupported value at path /apps/compiz/plugins/wobbly/screen0/options/friction. Settings from this path won’t be read. Try to remove that value so that operation can continue properly.

    It’s due probably to an older compiz version installed in your system..

    When I’ll have time I’ll try to install ccsm on a pure etch system (without backports) and I’ll do some tests.

    bye!

    I’ve tried ccsm on a clean Etch installation.. it doesn’t work if you don’t install the python-gtk 2.10 backport….

    Emilio could you please contact me regarding the LyX backport. I’m not sure if my mails get all lost in some spamfilter on the way to you because you never answered to the one on backports-user list and the one I cc’ed you on lyx-users.

    Regards,
    Sven

  13. Axel on

    Thank you for providing a backport of Lyx 1.5, which I had been looking for for ages. Please do consider using GPG authentification to help keep up Linux’s reputation of being a safe operating system.

  14. emiscabpo on

    Yes, you are right… This week I’m a bit busy with my degree thesis. But I’ll promise you that in the next weeks I’ll sign all of the packages.

  15. Scott Grayban on

    Packages are still not signed and causing apt to spew out nasty messages:

    WARNING: The following packages cannot be authenticated!

    Please fix ASAP as promised 4 months ago.

  16. emiscabpo on

    This warnings are totally unharmful. If you use your machine in production, and you want to be certain of which packages you install please don’t use my repository.
    You can use official backports or recompile the packages you need by yourself.

    Beside to this, the problem is that I have to do a full re-upload of the packages to get them signed, and that’s really bad, as they are 4gb of packages. Lenny is in freeze, I think I will sign the lenny backports I will make (if I’ll need them…).

    Bye,
    Emilio
