kolourpaint Debian package does not setup DCOPserver
 
1 Attachment(s)
I installed the kolorpaint Debian package. I invoked kolorpaint via
Applications --> Graphics --> Kolorpaint. Immediately I saw the
attached dialog box (Attachment 308).

Maybe the dependency is a runtime dependency only. I'm running
Version: 2.22.3 of GNOME Desktop.

Please note that:
  1. I do not want to know how to start a dcopserver. That should be hidden from me as an end-user.
  2. apt-get install kolorpaint should know to install and execute whatever servers are needed.

Is the error dialog box shown above an indication of a bug in how
kolorpaint is packaged in Debian? If so, I'll repost to the Debian
forum.

The kolorpaint package doesn't exist. What's its actual name and how did you install it? From a nondefault repository? From .deb files?

In any case you're running a KDE program on Gnome - no that's not always simple. Since the package doesn't exist I can't tell you what it says it depends on, but if it is properly set up and you installed via apt-get or aptitude, all the required dependencies would have been installed. But it's likely that the KDE services Kolorpaint depends on are not running because you are using Gnome. You'll have to either use a Gnome paint program, or start the KDE services in Gnome, but no I am not sure that is possible.


Edit: found it, it's spelled kolourpaint. It depends on kdelibs4c2a (>= 4:3.5.9), libc6 (>= 2.7-1), libgcc1 (>= 1:4.1.1), libqt3-mt (>= 3:3.3.8b), and libstdc++6.. whatever all that means. Sorry, I am not a KDE guy.

My bad. I mistyped it, when I should have cut-in-pasted it from my terminal window where I typed it in.

I'm going to remove the package and hope and pray doing so doesn't damage other apps I use (and I believe I don't have many KDE apps installed either).
