Hello:

Run this in a terminal:

~$ aptitude why libcups3

I run Devuan Beowulf with a backported kernel:

~$ uname -a
Linux devuan 5.10.0-0.deb10.16-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.127-2~bpo10+1 (2022-07-28) x86_64 GNU/Linux
~$ 

I have cups installed:

~$ apt list | grep installed | grep -i cups

~$ 

But the library you referr to is not installed in my system:

~$ apt list | grep installed | grep -i libcups3
---
~$ 
~$ aptitude why libcups3
E: No package named "libcups3" exists.
~$ 

Maybe it is just a chimaera thing?

Best,

A.

Re: sudo and slim

Or possibly a "recommends" thing?

That sounds like the battery for the real time clock is going flat. And might cause it to forget changes you made to the BIOS settings (or just randomly change settings). Replacing the battery would be a good start, then check all the BIOS settings.

I think i have mixed libcups2 with libavahi3 when writing the previous messages.
Anyways, can i configure apt in a way that it downloads/installs only the "Depends" packages ?

You should check that then.

Yes, install with the --no-install-recommends flag.

eg:

apt install --no-install-recommends [package_name_here]

See https://superuser.com/questions/615565/ … recommends for how to make that permanent in apt.

Best,

A.

So i'm the only one here who has broken slim?-)

have you tried installing seatd?

I recently removed it and slim works fine. There must of been a fix upstream?

However, I removed sudo and make live system. It still autologin into user 1000.
But interesting when I run w. slim session is invisible. When login it shows a user. But I don't see tty7 in daedalus where I would see the openbox session in chimaera.

But yeah you don't need sudo.

Re: sudo and slim

For a while i thought that wrong access rights in /tmp-directory was a root of all problems i've been lately having with Devuan. Now i'm not so sure anymore. This morning i tried again installling Devuan into Fujitsu. With chimaera desktop image on a stick i mostly made it working.

Then i screwed up something, again. (Being tired enough is not so different from being drunk. ) Could't login as a normal user even after chmod 777 /tmp. And also something went wrong with "iptables/dnsmasq/dhclient"-side of things in the sense that apt didn't work. There were some complaints related to name service.

Again it seems necessary to find a software less difficult than slim.
I don't think sudo is a problem anymore.

Again i think that bios battery is not the whole story. With my "new" desktop things have detoriorated to a situation where it won't boot even from hard disk. I get complaints from bios instead.

I have changed battery 2 or 3 times this year. Tried also returning bios settings to factory defaults once or twice. Changed sata cables also, just in case.
Very interesting problem indeed. Unfortunately i have some things to do, preferably within a deadline. So now is not a good time for further research.

In a way this reminds me the last seasons of Stargate, there were this bad guy called Anubis. He had to change hosts often.
