[jitsi-users] nightly .deb will not install on Ubuntu 12.04


#1

I've been creating a few new VMs in the last couple of days and have
been unable to install the latest Debian/Ubuntu package for Jitsi
nightly on a fresh install of Ubuntu Linux 12.04.

Approach 1: Install the .deb file
- fails with unmet dependencies if done from the command line (sudo
dpkg -i filename.deb).
- fails with a timeout error if the browser (FF) is allowed to pass
the .deb directly to Ubuntu Software Centre for handling. The download
seems to commence but then always stalls at around 37%. I changed
Ubuntu repositories (to exclude a regional problem with the servers
dependencies would presumably be downloaded from), but that did not
help. It still stalls and ultimately fails.

Approach 2: Add the Jitsi repo in sources.list & then apt-get install
- fails due to unknown GPG key - can someone please update
https://jitsi.org/index.php/Main/DebianNightlyRepository to warn about
this and add a workaround? (a string of copy/pasteable commands for
(1) get key from keyservers (2) add to trusted keys db (3) apt-get
update (4) apt-get install jitsi should suffice)

What is the current recommended approach?

Thanks

Alex

Hey Alex,

The best way to move to nightly is to start from manually installing a
stable build and adding the nightly repo to your sources.list.

We are currently working on a contributing our packages to the debian
repo so, if all goes well, maybe you'll have an even easier way by the
end of the summer.

Cheers,
Emil
