Question Installing StuntRally on my LTS 16.04 Desktop


Good afternoon,

Im having a few issues installing this game from the command line. So far i have run

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu vivid-getdeb games" >/etc/apt/sources.list.d/playdeb.list'

then ive run

sudo apt update

after 4 or 5 hits it bounces back with

Err:5 http://screenshots.getdeb.net vivid-getdeb InRelease
The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY A8A515F046D7E7CF
Reading package lists... Done
W: GPG error: http://screenshots.getdeb.net vivid-getdeb InRelease: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY A8A515F046D7E7CF
E: The repository 'http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu vivid-getdeb InRelease' is not signed.
N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.

It seems like i have to create a repository for user config, but as im barely a year into Linux i could be wrong.

Another error i received was

brice@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt install stuntrally

no go

I think i may be the dumbest Linux noob ever. I have done everything updated my repositories, installed mint and tried the install on that as well. From the command line and from the gui to no avail. This is the latest error i received after trying your instructions. This is on my mint box ( please see attachments). I also followed a tutorial on youtube that detailed how to update the source repository via repogen.simplylinux.ch. I cant sleep because of the chit mane. I know this shouldn't be as hard as it is. Im missing something simple. Please Help!

From your screenshots, the two problems I see are...

1. There appears to be an issue with the APT address you used. I would need to see the error message from the CLI (terminal) but it looks like Ubuntu is unable to make contact with the server in question.

2. The dependencies needed to run the game were not installed.

I would disable the APT addresses for getdeb using Synaptic (by unchecking the entries under "Settings, then "Repositories," then click the "Other Software" tab.) Then click the "Reload" button when you see a window informing you the repositories have changed. Then run this command in a terminal....

Code:
sudo apt-get update
And see if the "broken packages" error message still appears. If so, you will need to address that first before you can install the game. Please see the instructions here or here to help you to resolve this.

Disclaimer: Be careful with these commands. Ones that are prefaced with "su" or "sudo" will essentially allow root access to your system. Mistakes could possibly damage or even destroy your OS.

Once you make sure there is no longer any issue with broken packages, you can install the game using the method described here. It might be a bit more difficult but it should take care of everything you need.

Regards...

wrong url

Hi guys

this address you got given is dead
you can test it by entering it in a browser
http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu brings up error 404 =
The requested URL /ubuntu was not found on this server.

a new address entry for synaptic that works for get-deb is:
ftp://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/www.getd.../getdeb/ubuntu
xenial-getdeb
games

a test of the above address shows a page with 3 folders: db dists pool
the dists and pool folders are the standard layout for a repository
you can go into the dists folder and check if your version (Xenial) exists
yes it exists so it should work

wishing you good fun with the games you'll find there

Awesome! If you would, please mark this thread as "SOLVED" by clicking on "Thread Tools" directly above your initial post. Thanks!

By the way, you're not dumb. It takes a degree of skill and know how to work with Linux and Linux software and you've just installed a program successfully. And even if your IQ wasn't the best in the world, that doesn't define your value and importance. Your value and importance comes from the fact you are God's creation and Whose Son Jesus took our place and died for us on the Cross.

Regards...
