Should this message worry me?


I am trying to compile / install the latest hplip with Mepis 8.

I went back to Step 2, Part C (http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web...ros/mepis.html)

After installing the dependencies, I got lots of output in the terminal but it ended with this message:

WARNING: The following packages cannot be authenticated!
libdbus-1-3 libdbus-1-dev
E: There are problems and -y was used without --force-yes

Should I be concerned?

Get the GPG repo keys from the repo if you didn't already, or try an alternate mirror if there's mirror errors, or set "AllowUnauthenticated" to "0" in your /etc/apt/apt.conf to allow unauthenticated packages through (bad) or use "--force-yes" (bad) as Apt itself gave you that clue. As you see the problem with just saying "lots of output in the terminal" (instead of attaching a log) is that nobody can see what's going on (like NO_PUBKEY or repo errors) and have to list all possibilities. Not that efficient.

Point taken, here is the terminal input:

cat2007@mepis1:~$ su -c "apt-get install --yes libcupsys2 libcupsys2-dev libcupsys2-dev build-essential gs-esp openssl libjpeg62-dev libsnmp9-dev build-essential libtool libusb-dev build-essential python-imaging python-qt4 python-qt4-dbus python-dbus libdbus-1-dev python-gobject python-dev python python python-reportlab sane libsane-dev libsane-dev sane-utils xsane"

Point taken, here is the terminal output (concerned part is in bold):

OK. thanks for posting. Temporarily set "AllowUnauthenticated" to "0" in apt.conf or use apt with "--force-yes"?

hplip and Mepis

IIRC, Mepis 8 comes with hplip installed....or at least it's in the repos...
