Post#1 by zander » 26 Aug 2015, 20:29

hello
is it possible install .deb package in porteus? deb2xzm gave me warining, also cant find this /tmp directory

root@porteus:/home/guest/Desktop# deb2xzm mullvad_51-1_all.deb mullvad_51-1_all.xzm
Verifying package mullvad_51-1_all.tgz.
Installing package mullvad_51-1_all.tgz:
PACKAGE DESCRIPTION:
WARNING: Package has not been created with 'makepkg'
Package mullvad_51-1_all.tgz installed.

Creating /tmp/deb2xzm2964/mullvad_51-1_all.xzm



it says , package installed, so how can i make it work?
do i have to run ' activate ' and relocate it to porteus/optional?
again, cant find installation directory

/tmp/deb2xzm2964/mullvad_51-1_all.xzm

thnx

^ Has module been created in the $HOME directory?

Btw you only need: deb2xzm mullvad_51-1_all.deb :)

yes it was created on desktop, should it be moved to porteus/optional?
bcz its not working whats the sequnce of commands should be to make it called by system, by enetring 'mullvad'?
thnx

It needs to be in "porteus/modules" then reboot.
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

payment needed if u wanna connect to VPN, but i think first 6hrs is free, no payment, no credit card, also they accept bitcoins
and
download is free,
go to:
mullvad.net,

also i was trying to install source code, and installed python to run it, but eventually got lost, bcz there are many more packages in dependency needed like wxpython, etc
