has anyone installed popcorn-time on debian 7?


i d/led the 3.2 tar.gz off the site and uncompressed it, however when i click the app nothing happens. ran in terminal and i'm getting

./Popcorn-Time: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: verizon 'GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by ./Popcorn-Time)

./Popcorn-Time: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: verizon 'GLIBC_2.15' not found (required by ./Popcorn-Time)

how can i get these, i searched package installer, also tried apt-get libc6 and it says its already installed.

Debian obviously ships with an incompatible C library version. Looks like popcorn time requires a minimum of glibc-2.14. You can install another version of glibc, but if you do it wrong you'll bork your system pretty good. I'm sure you're not the first to install a second version of glibc on a Debian system. I suggest you search the internet for some trustworthy instructions.

What version of the libc package are you using? Debian testing gives you 2.19-10 which does provide libc.so.6. On the other hand Debian Wheezy gives you 2.13-38.

wheezy, 2.13, i did read instructions on changing to testing but it came with a lot of warnings, so i'm not sure if i should just switch distros considering i just installed deb on this system a couple days ago and i'm not really that invested. for some reason i gravitate towards debian but then shortly realize some things are not easily added.

I started using Debian many years ago. Like many people I thought it best to begin with Stable (then called something like "Potato" or "Woody"). After about 2 day I realised that Stable was definitely not for me. It was far too conservative for someone using it on their personal desktop. Mission-critical servers? Yes indeed! Personal use? not for me. I've never really had any serious trouble with Testing (and Sid users will call me timid for not using Unstable) -- just niggly little things that go away after a day or two. If you are otherwise happy with Debian, I don't see any reason not to switch to Jessie.

I see it says to change stable to testing, but in my etc/apt/sources.list does not say stable anywhere not sure if I should change the instances of wheezy to Jessie. But it does not say to do that

If you want to change to Testing then it would be better to use "testing" than "jessie" in your sources.list file. One day "jessie" will be "stable" but "testing" will always be "testing" independently of the codename for the current version.

I did the testing update last night but now when I log in I no longer have the option to select xfce4 at login. Only gnome is available. I removed and reinstalled xfce and still don't have the option to switch at login

Look here:
Quote:
Package xfce4

jessie (testing) (xfce): Meta-package for the Xfce Lightweight Desktop Environment
4.10.1: all
Is this the package you installed? It's a meta-package (a package of packages) and involves the installation of 45 packages.
Just install it and you should be good to go. The next time you reboot you should get the option to select xfce4.
