Nala is a front-end for libapt-pkg. Specifically we interface using the python-apt api.
Especially for newer users it can be hard to understand what apt is trying to do when installing or upgrading.
We aim to solve this by not showing some redundant messages, formatting the packages better, and using color to
show specifically what will happen

Newer Firefox on Debian

Posted 10-24-2021 at 11:51 AM by craigevil (craigevil's random words of wisdom)

OK take a deep breath, now let it out. This post uses Ubuntu repos on RPIOS/Twister/Debian so do NOT freak out.

First, there is Ubuntuzilla, which works for i386/amd64 but not arm32/arm64. Since I am on RPIOS I am just posting the link to it.

For those like myself that are using a Raspberry PI the following will keep Firefox current on your system.

Restoring the ability to mount local drives as a normal user, without password, in Debian 11

I don't recall having tweaked any setting to have "udiskctl mount" working without password in the same exact situation, but whatever happened, after the upgrade from Debian 10 to 11, it no longer worked.

While there are quite a few examples of how to set up the correct "polkit" rule for it around, most of them refer to a newer version of polkit that uses a different syntax. Debian's pkaction version is still 1.105. And apparently the file needs to be in the correct...

Getting back some python-2 functionality (pip) on Debian 11/bullseye

If you don't actually know python enough to rewrite old scripts you use for python3, you may want to restore some functionality:

Code:
wget https://bootstrap.pypa.io/pip/2.7/get-pip.py
python2 get-pip.py
Then you'd use "pip2 install package"
