Thread: Why no Quanta+ in LEAP 42????

  1. #1

    Default Why no Quanta+ in LEAP 42????

    I upgraded to LEAP 42 and discovered that Quanta+ is no longer in the distro. Why?
    I tried installing the 13.2 RPM as well as he latest bz2 from Source Forge but it will not install because ( I'm assuming ) of all the missing dependencies that poped up when I tried installing it from the Source Forge bz2 archive. I do gobs of web development and was a heavy Quanta+ user/lover. I tried Bluefish, Seamonkey and a few others but don't really care for them.
    As I see that KDE has done no development on Quanta since 2008 I wish KDE would fix it so it is again a useable product!
    Anyone know of any workarounds?

    It's available from the KDE3 repo for Leap:

    The one click install doesn't work; it defaults to an xml page, so I used http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE3/openSUSE_Leap_42.1/ in Yast. For some reason, Yast claims I installed it, but it doesn't pull up in my app menu. I only get Bluefish as an html editor.

    I never use one-click installs. In any case you can just install it as a single package from the web page I linked to.

    You need to use a web browser that has YMP as a configured MIME type... Like Firefox distributed by openSUSE which is included in every openSUSE install. My guess is that you're using some other web browser.

    The alternative is what deano suggests... Don't click on the "One-click Install," click on the 64-bit package (because you're running LEAP) to download the RPM package, then you can point Zypper or Yast at your package to install.

    You can inspect the package contents to see if a menu item should have been installed, or you need to create one
    Code:
    rpm -ql packagename

    Question Re: Why no Quanta+ in LEAP 42????

    I downloaded the rpm in a local directory, Yast sees it, so I install it. At least, I thought I did. When I attempt to pull up the app, leap knows nothing of quanta. When I pull up Yast again, I get the following:

    Code:
    An error occurred during repository initialization.
    Error refreshing service Quanta (https://software.opensuse.org/package/kde3-quanta):
    
    Parse error: repoindex.xml[278] Opening and ending tag mismatch: h3 line 278 and h4
    History:
    - repoindex.xml[123] Entity 'nbsp' not defined
    - repoindex.xml[123] Entity 'nbsp' not defined
    Upon inspection:
    Code:
    rpm -ql kde3-quanta-3.5.10-140.4.x86_64.rpm
    package kde3-quanta-3.5.10-140.4.x86_64.rpm is not installed
    
    But when I look in Yast, it claims that it's installed. Please Help.

    Remove the Quanta repo. If in doubt post the configured repos...
    Code:
    zypper lr -d

    After you've removed the problematic repo, you can add it again using
    Code:
    sudo zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE3/openSUSE_Leap_42.2/ Quanta
    then install with
    Code:
    sudo zypper in kde3-quanta
    FWIW, I did the above (for openSUSE 42.2) with a dry-run for test purposes only....
    Code:
    linux-kgxs:/home/dean # zypper in --dry-run kde3-quanta

    I removed the repo within Yast already, I think:
