superkaramba on Debian


Greetings

I have just dl superkaramba with apt-get install. but did not work on the theme that I wanted so I checked it's version superkaramba -v it is
Qt: 3.3.3
KDE: 3.2.3
superkaramba: 0.33

Well what I need is version 0.35
I tried to update it doing apt-get update and it did not update I also did apt-get install superkaramba
and it said that I had the latest version.

well I know that is not true
Now a while ago I tryed to dl it then install it but I got some errors doing it the long way

any enuf of that How do I update using apt-get or do I have to dl the latest version and install it using ./config

Thank you all

That's funny, I used apt to get it and I have v0.35. Maybe you are using woody.
In that case only thing I now of to is update to sarge.

Getting the tar.gz can solve your problems, or you can change your /etc/apt/sources.lst file. Debian comes in 3 "flavors", stable (servers primarily, or the hyper-nervous), testing (on deck to be stable, probably the most common for desktop use), and unstable (bleeding edge). If you edit the sources.lst and make sure they are set to unstable (same web addresses, just change the designation) you should be able to get superkaramba .35.

****Major Warning******

It may want/need a huge slew of dependencies to get the newest version working. For example, if you're on kde 3.2 (typical for Testing), karamba .35 may require KDE 3.3, which requires ......, which requires ........ so forth and so on until you're download a gig worth of the newest versions of software. Plus there is no guarentee anything on unstable will work at all, let alone with your particular setup. If it works neatly consider yourself lucky. If it doesn't, well, wait a few months and try again.

Please post again if you encounter more problems.

Peace,
JimBass

#deb file:///cdrom/ sarge main

deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ unstable main
deb-src http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ unstable main

deb http://security.debian.org/ unstable/updates main


ok the words in red were (testing) I changed them (is that what I was to do?) well if not it worked to a degree

I updated superkaramba to 0.35

now when I try to open somthing it gives me this
Could not find mime type

Now I tryed this to see if I could get mime
apt-get install mime

Superkaramba will run on KDE 3.1 and up. There is some functionality that may not be there for 3.1 users as some of the code is #if def'ed out so that it can compile.
Just wanted everyone to know that we are trying to remain as backward compatible as possible.
cheers,
