thanks,

it was only needed to install

libglib-object-introspection-perl

then it would build correctly, it seems that gtk3 is already present.

you may need to install the Glib::Object::Introspection module

Hello ,

i would like to install on a fresh install of Beowulf with Cinnamon the latest
Gtk-youtube-viewer;
however, it is now only possible to build the newest version with gtk3 and no longer has a fallback option for gtk2.

can someone please help me to install gtk3 on Devuan Beowulf?


Did look some packages like "libgtk3-dev" but this would not suffice.


<it says that i am not having gtk3 installed>

please help me to get a working devuan jessie sources.list.

the netinstaller would no longer function on the proposed net-repository.sources, thanks!

EDIT:

deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged jessie main contrib
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged jessie-security main contrib
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged jessie-updates main contrib
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged jessie-backports main contrib

seems somehow to function;
the security branch is no longer active,
and i think the netinstaller iso wanted to use auto.mirror.devuan.org or similar instead of "deb.devuan.org", maybe therefore it did not function.

Hello ,
i also use

printer-driver-escpr

because i am not able to install "lsb-package" at the moment, but it won't help with duplex-printing.

maybe i am doing something wrong here?

#7 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » (HowTo)(GTX 1650) Install Nvidia-Driver properly » 2020-11-21 09:33:31

ok, it seemed the very first thing to do would have been

sudo apt install -t beowulf-backports linux-headers-amd64

but in my case it was already installed , maybe because i had installed the "Nvidia-Linux ..run" previously or maybe installing "nvidia-driver" via backports installed those aswell?

Hello ,

i am back with the setting up of the desktop PC;
it has a Nvidia graphics card GTX 1650 and i am having problems setting the graphics card up properly.


tried to install the "NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-450.80.02.run" package, but some things seemed not function,
so i went the "official" route through devuan drivers.


what i did

1. went to Debian Wiki to lookup how it is done there
https://wiki.debian.org/NvidiaGraphicsDrivers

2. adapted from debian-backports to devuan-backports (in my case beowulf-backports)

3. installed the one-liner

apt install -t beowulf-backports nvidia-driver 

4. deleted nvidia-persistenced (it gave error)

apt autoremove nvidia-persistenced

5. reboot



it would normally boot and give some error "nvidia-persistenced not found" somewhere during boot process;
but then Xserver would start and i could normally logonwas  to a functional desktop.

was trying to test then with GFXbench, and some error were visible so probably the nvidia-driver installation is faulty?

@GlennW , thank you, i tried your method, and it brought me a functioning desktop. However there were some error messages, one notably

WARNING: Unable to determine the path to install the libglvnd EGL vendor library config files. Check that you have pkg-config and the libglvnd development libraries installed, or specify a path with --glvnd -egl -config-path.

Thank you Pedro, i have seen that this gphoto2 is active with Camera on Wheezy, too.

However, on Devuan it seems the package is not enough.

the camera is recognized and photos come up!

thank you very much - it seems however that when installing

gphoto2

with "sudo apt install gphoto2" it is not enough as it does not install the dependencies. maybe i am doing it wrong?
please indicate me a proper line for installing it correctly, and please include this software by default.

#12 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Cmus not starting on Devuan 3.0.0 Beowulf, Mate[ SOLVED] » 2020-10-19 20:09:56

what i didd on powerpc probably or mac osx to compile it for newer version, you could always try that with help on github pages or wiki.

#13 Re: Other Issues » [Solved] Installing printer Ecotank - cannot install "LSB" » 2020-10-19 20:04:32

@yes, it is functioning, but i would like still to install driver package, for better options etc. also duplex is otherwise sometimes greyed out.

#14 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Sony Camera not recognized » 2020-10-19 20:00:34

i just checked on my older T60 running debian wheezy, and there the camera is perfectly recognized.

#17 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Sony Camera not recognized » 2020-10-14 20:00:38

sorry, but the camera shows only "USB-Mode   PTP/MTP"
                                                      "Speicherkarte - Wiederg. per "Wiedergabe" - Tastendruck" eg. "Memorycard - Playback via "Play" - Buttonpress"

if playbutton is pressed, the only think happens is that the internal display on the camera is being changed from the above message/statusscreen to the active fotomanager on the camera, eg. the photos are being displayed on-cam.

lsblk is giving the following output

lsblk
NAME   MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT

└─sda5   8:5    0   2.9G  0 part [SWAP]
sr0     11:0    1  1024M  0 rom

will check the next days on ubuntu after iget my cmputer back to see if it behaves there differently, but i believe so.

#18 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Sony Camera not recognized » 2020-10-14 17:40:57

yes, both devices are usb-connected, and have proprietary cables (from what i understand > typically sony)
maybe i am doing something wrong wh, but i think the camera is instantly recognized on ubuntu with the same procedure.

the walkman has only internal flash installed (but can handle also additional micro-SD-card up to 2TB or maybe even more)
the camera has a 32gb old sd-card (the bigger ones) and probably no flash memory.

exfat-fuse and exfat-utils

seem already manually installed (maybe leftover from ascii installation?)

laptop T400 has 3 usb ports, it does not make a difference if ports are switched, camera not shown in filemanager.

#19 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Sony Camera not recognized » 2020-10-14 12:31:10

hmm, strange, the sony mp4 player gets recognized and is shown in file manager xfce , the camera however not.
will do some more testing.
thanks for your help.

#20 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Sony Camera not recognized » 2020-10-13 12:05:46

thank you,

i did not know this program,


and i don't like to download all fotos as it does now through terminal.


it like to show up the camera in file manager and select the photos myself.

#21 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Sony Camera not recognized » 2020-10-13 11:23:11

i have upgraded the system on the laptop from Ascii to Beowulf, but that should not make a difference in recognizing the Camera;

the update process proceeded without any errors,


Thank you very much.

Hello ,


i would like to transfer the pictures from Camera Sony W830 to the laptop.

However, the PTP/MTP is not being recognized by Devuan 3.0 Beowulf and the Camera would not show up as an external storage (it should show from 30 to 32GB)



What am i doing wrong?

#23 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Changing from amd to nvidia card » 2020-10-12 19:54:07

@head_on_a_Stick, thanks, good suggestion.

@blackhole, yes, probably unsupported, as i just installed devuan beowulf anew (with nividia 1650)
and it would not go into "X"; so i was greeted with terminal window instead;

installing

nvidia-driver

does not resolve, well at least it gives a graphical desktop, but blocks the terminal thereafter with "nvidia-persistenced".

if i need backports, i will try those.

EDIT: tried also installing the drivers from bakcports,
i am still getting "nvidia-persistenced" error.


please someone write a small guide on how to properly install nvidia-drivers, not just the legacy ones.

#24 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Changing from amd to nvidia card » 2020-10-12 17:07:51

the graphics is rtx 1650

 lspci -nn | egrep -i "3d|display|vga"
07:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation Device [10de:1f82] (rev a1)

and debian wiki says

The proprietary "NVIDIA Accelerated Linux Graphics Driver" provides optimized hardware acceleration of OpenGL and Vulkan applications through either Xorg or Wayland. It is a binary-only driver requiring a Linux kernel module for its use.

Multiple precompiled driver versions are available for Debian 10 "Buster":

    Version 450.66 (supported devices)
        Supports Kepler, Maxwell, Pascal, and all current Turing GPUs. Supports Vulkan 1.2 and OpenGL 4.6.
        Note that 450.66 is currently only available in buster-backports.

alright, now i have everything installed, and next problem comes up:

how can i properly switch to nvidia card?
i have two monitors setup, and triple boot /(devuan , windows 7, ubuntu 18.04).

after changing from amd to nvidia card, only devuan seems to boot.

now, i suppose, i need to just to deinstall the firmware-amd-graphics on devuan and install nvidia driver package?
but what to do on ubuntu, if it would not boot properly, and on windows?

do i need to put the other card back in and preopare already the machine with the nvidia drivers in place?

thank you.

EDIT: i understand that the nouveau driver functions also so as it is,
but i tried with display manager on xfce to change the monitor setup, and the result was that i could not longer access most part of the screens that seemed somhow frozen and could only be maneauvred by clicking in the leftover part, practically clicking blind over the place -
