deb package fails to install on Ubuntu 19.10.
“Package ‘libgnome-keyring0’ has no installable candidate”
This means I cannot install the latest version via the deb package. And since the snap package is no longer supported, I’m stuck with an outdated version through snap.
Pop!_os (based on Ubuntu)
App Version: (4.4.0)
Attempt to install the deb file on Ubuntu 19.10 or a derivative.
Update deb package to work with Ubuntu 19.10
Please resume support for the Snap package. It makes installing the application simple, regardless of distribution.
Thank you for the report.
I got it to work on Ubuntu 19.04 but it looks like the package
libgnome-keyring0 no longer exists in the APT repository for 19.10:
Maybe you can install it directly?
Let me investigate on how to solve that.
The Snap package seems very out of date (it’s still on Inkdrop 3). Is there an update planned?
Version 3.25.4 is downloaded, which is far behind version 4.
libgnome-keyring0 actually necessary? I was able to install the inkdrop deb manually with
dpkg, and everything seemed to work fine. The only issue being that I could no longer install or upgrade anything, because every time I’d run apt it would detect that Inkdrop was missing a dependency.
I’ve got some reports that the app won’t work without
So I added it as a dependency.
But, yeah, I have the same question and that might depend on an environment.
Do you have
gnome-keyring package installed?
I do have gnome-keyring installed.
I confirmed that it works fine without
libgnome-keyring0 if the system has
gnome-keyring on Ubuntu 19.10.
I will also check that on other Ubuntu versions.
I got it to work on Ubuntu 16.04 and Debian 9 as well.
Seems like having
gnome-keyring is sufficient.
I will replace the dependency on
gnome-keyring from the next release.
You can try the patched deb package here:
You’re the best! Thank you.
This patch solved my problem as well (PopOS 19.10). Thanks!
Released v4.4.1. Thanks, guys!
Also please check out the snap package which is being tested to be back available:
This patch solved the above issue!
It just excludes chrome-sandbox file from the package.
Now we finally have the latest snap package. Could you try it?
sudo snap install --edge inkdrop
sudo snap connect inkdrop:password-manager-service
Thanks alot! 4.4.1 is working nicely with ubuntu 19.10. - The demo link on your website is still linking to inkdrop_demo_4.4.0_amd64.deb (which has the issue)
Great to hear that and thanks for checking it out!
