Package list discrepancy

Post#1 by LuxZg » 11 May 2021, 11:16

On a download page there is always a link like:
Package list: link
List is published at URL: https://porteus-kiosk.org/packages.html
The list is described as : "Packages used for creating latest version of Porteus Kiosk:"

But what I've searched and tried doesn't correspond to the list, and these packages seem to be absent as these command throw "not found" errors:
- ffmpeg
- freerdp
- python

I did not go through all the packages, but is this a list for Porteus Kiosk or for combined builds of Kiosk + Cloud + ThinClient + Server? Or should these packages be present on all the "variants"?

Package list discrepancy

Hello LuxZg,

Packages are spread on different modules.

ffmpeg (libs only) is part of the Firefox module.
freerdp is part of the ThinClient system.
Python is in the printing component.

The reason is: standard kiosk does not need freerdp package, python is needed only for printing (required by the hplip package), etc.

Thanks
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Ah thank you, I expected something like that. But it's good to know that python is in printing module, just in case I ever need it. Thanks for explanation and the details.
