Ubuntu upgrade from 11.10 to 12.04

Posted 04-27-2012 at 08:44 PM by Sonneteer

Since I have about a billion 3rd party applications installed, the upgrade process can be somewhat interesting at times. This time around I uninstalled acroread first, since in previous upgrades, that package has caused the upgrade process to abort.
Now that my internet is on Shaw instead of Telus, the download time was pretty short. But then the upgrade seemed to be stuck for a long time at the same point, it was not until I expanded the terminal that I found there was an ncurses dialog...

Enabling qt examples in openSUSE & new mc2 version uploaded.

Enabling qt examples in openSUSE and new mc2 version uploaded.


The issue: The examples in openSUSE 11.4 expect their resources to be in
which did not exist on my system.

I can no longer verify this as an 11.4 issue easily but it appears that in openSUSE we may need a symlink under /usr/lib/qt4 pointing to /usr/share/qt4/examples in order for the qt examples to run.

ls /usr/lib/qt4/examples

qt designer help without the enableRemoteControl switch

In case you missed it (the blog entry), qt designer tries to go online whenever you click on the help button. This can cause the help to hang for quite a long time if your user doesn't have internet access or you might just dislike the decisions made by the developers and prefer to stay in your own neighborhood.

If you didn't "miss it" but you had trouble with a hex editing the commandline for the assistant client, here's the one that I created. It should work on openSUSE...

To whom it may concern.
re. QT GuitarTuner bug fix.

The 'ptr' that was causing the problem was apparently the main app, not the GuitarTuner. You can stop reading here, if this makes sense to you.

But if you want to check out the guitar tuner here's a bit more info and a link to the build sources at the bottom.

Check for missing deps.

int main(int argc, char** argv)
  return 0;
