The debian script is not working


(julian tuggle) #1

it keeps saying package package pencil2d is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

@Satire Thank you for letting us know. Maybe @mattia_rizzolo knows more about it since he’s been our Debian maintainer for some time.

Meanwhile this gets reviewed, if you need to run Pencil2D you can use either of the following methods:

  1. Flatpack: https://flathub.org/apps/details/org.pencil2d.Pencil2D
  2. AppImage (Currently it seems there are issues with sound on some Linux distros, so you can either try Flatpacks or compiling from source if this package doesn’t work as intended): https://github.com/pencil2d/pencil/releases/download/v0.6.2/pencil2d-linux-amd64-0.6.2.AppImage

Also if you want you can try Ocotber’s 14th Nightly Build (with Copy/Paste issue fixed) AppImage. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1MEPotcQ_KIi-ZFd1mY5tzUipIgEfsRfd/view?usp=sharing (This is a link to a nightly build

@Satire What “debian script” are you referring to?

Can you include more details on what you are trying to accomplish and what you did?

sudo apt-get install pencil2d


(Mattia Rizzolo) #5

from which distribution?

That works only starting with Debian buster (I didn’t let it in stretch because back then there was not a stable release of pencil2d yet).
