Are these upgrades going to be implemented any time soon.....are you all keeping up with any of this so as to upgrade the local repositories for Zorin....I know you use a lot of stuff for or from Ubuntu....thanks for your input and for a great OS

Hi Andrew, Most of the main applications come from Ubuntu repositories - are there any .deb packages available?

Hey Swarfendor437,

After a big bout with sourceforge, and trying to follow certain instructions for installation, I've discovered right now that their current project is based on the 64bit and it's a tar ball that will/would have to be installed through .debs right now. I think it'll have to go through Crosswire repos first so they can analise and determine if and when this gets put into any OS repo's.....I know 3.1.6.version of xiphos is out there and a lot of other OS's/distros have it in their repo' there any way of at least getting that version into Zorin repo's....Thanks for your time

Hi, one way to try is to install gdebi package installer (unless already present) then install 'alien':

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install alien

Then if the package is tar.gz - no problem - if any other tarball package, extract the files then compress with Archive manager to tar.gz format - make a note of it's location then at the bash prompt enter:

Code: Select all
sudo alien -d -i <package_name>

d = turn into debian package
i = install debian package.

Hope this helps! :D
