debian wheezy glines


Hi all,
I am running since some years a debian wheezy. Glines which is part of gnome-games does not work with wheezy installation. This bug is fully documented on the internet. For any reasons I cannot migrate to Jessie or others. My question is how to get a working Glines on my wheezy installation. I have tried aptitude update, reinstall, this is alway the same buggy gline version which is installed. Following is the content of my sources.list :
christian@orinoco:~$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
#

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 7.7.0 _Wheezy_ - Official i386 CD Binary-1 20141018-11:53]/ wheezy main

deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 7.7.0 _Wheezy_ - Official i386 CD Binary-1 20141018-11:53]/ wheezy main
deb http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ testing main
deb http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main non-free contrib
deb-src http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main non-free contrib

deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main

# wheezy-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-updates main
deb-src http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-updates main

Thanks for help
Christian

Thanks ondoho to point this. I added the 'testing' repo to reinstall glines, it was a test. Does it mean that there is no updated version or is there a another way to get it ?
thanks

^ ok, if you did NOT run apt-get upgrade after adding the testing line, you should be fine by

a) uninstalling whatever you installed form testing (incl. dependencies pulled in!)
b) removing that line
c) update & upgrade

and you should be back to a healthy wheezy.

have you tried installing this version:
https://packages.debian.org/wheezy/glines
?

Testing at this point is stretch, with stable being jessie. Which would likely be stretch as stable in the next couple of weeks. In jessie, it looks like glines is a transitional package to five-or-more.

$ sudo apt-get install five-or-more
$ five-or-more
