How to ignore dependency for apt-get update


do you have a handy answer/link to this issue with google-chrome in TDE?

I installed it forcing ignore dependency and it works just fine without this

# apt-get upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 google-chrome-stable : Depends: libappindicator1 but it is not installed

Description-en: allow applications to export a menu into the panel
 A library to allow applications to export a menu into the panel.
 Based on KSNI it also works in KDE and will fallback to generic Systray
 support if none of those are available.

I think there should be a way to remove the dependency from the package, I
know how to do it before installation, but is there (I'm sure there is) a
way to do it after the installation.

Thanks in advance

Folder size !

Hi Guys,

I've just noticed a folder that I have restored from a backup only 
shows a size of 1Mb when I hover the mouse over it.  Refreshing the 
desktop doesn't alter the reported size.  However if I look 
at "Properties" it shows me the correct size of 1.3Gb.

downloading from quickbuild inordinately slow

Yesterday I downloaded from the
upgrade to TDE 14.0.2 for wheezy.  The downloading was ultimately
successful, but it required approximately twelve hours to complete.

On the other hand all my other downloads, including those from the
debian wheezy depositaries, are super fast.  I am in Thailand but have
a fibre optic connection to the ISP close by and from there by
satellite directly to the rest of the world.  It would consequently
seem that any slowdown is not at my end.

Is such a low speed for downloads from quickbuild normal?

Regards, Ken

k3b want's a 800MB CD

Hello all,

I've run in a problem with k3b. I wanted to try Qt4--Fsarchiver that comes (in 
one form) as an Ubuntu live CD. The problem is that the image is 880 MB but 
k3b "sees" it as a CD. It cant't burn it on a 700 MB CD and it does not 
accept a raw DVD so you're stuck.

The workaround for me was to use Brasero that remained from the basic Gnome 
install, but I wonder what, if anything, we can do to change that behaviour.

Qt4-archiver does it's job by the way, and the live CD gives you a GUI 
environment (Unity of course...). I think I still prefer Image for Linux and 
the command line however.

PclinuxOS 64 and 32bit repository

Hi I did manage to update to 14.0.2 however I get a lot of file size mismatch errors when I did so (I actually cheated to get it installed by using rpm -Uvh once the files downloaded using apt-get) and a lot of others can't update at all.

I hope the list is updated soon as this is a very nice release and is faster and more stable which b elies it's .0.1 increase in version

Desktop Icons


When loading the desktop, trinity is centering the desktop icons. Is there a 
way to keep it from rearranging the icons? Locking the icons in place doesn't 
prevent the centering.

Thanks for the replies.  I'm looking into going to an ISP where I had
a webmail account several years ago.

Backing Up !

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the help getting this new machine up and running.
I backed up all the required bits in the old ".trinity" and simply 
copied them into the same place on the new machine.

Apart from one missing item in "Knode" all the links and passwords 
were restored perfectly.

Great job from the TDE team.

I only have one slight dissapointment !  The new quad core AMD is not 
as fast as the old P4 dual core yet the performance rating suggests 
that it should be at least twice as fast.  Subjective, I know, but !

Thanks again:

Backing up !

Hi Guys,

I need to save and transfer all my Kmail, Knode settings and passwords 
to a new machine running Jessie/TDE desktop.  However the machine I 
need to transfer from is 32 bit and the new one is 64 bit, I don't 
know if that makes a difference.

Which files do I need to copy over ?  I've already done a backup 
of "Home" though some files didn't copy at all but I think that they 
were things like sockets.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I'm so sorry, everyone, that was meant to go privately to Steven.  I am 
getting thoroughly incompetent in my old age and I can only apologise and ask
