Where is the converted .deb package?

Post#1 by wsssixteen » 05 May 2015, 11:18

So I've right-clicked on the .deb package and chose "Convert debian package". And it says "Conversion complete". But I can't find it anywhere. It is beyond frustrating for something simple made unclear.

I've searched the tutorials and forum but I can't find any solutions to it. I believe I'll struggle to understand vague directions. I'm sorry but I'll need a step by step instructions. How to convert or if there's any other way to install a .deb package.

I'm trying to install "kingsoft-office_9.1.0.4244~a12p3_i386-1.deb" by the way.

Thanks.

You should find the converted package in the same directory as the original .deb package.

So if there are no converted package, what could the problem be?
Is there anything I could do to check for a bug?

Can you do the following:

- open a terminal in the directory where your .deb file is.
- in the command prompt type:

Code: Select all

convert_deb your_deb_file
Are there any error messages?

Did I type anything wrong?

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~/Downloads$ convert_deb kingsoft-office_9.1.0.4244~a12p3_i386-1.deb
bash: convert_deb: command not found
And by the way, if I've found a module from Slax, can I install it?

maybe you have to do this task as root? in slackware exist a lot of office suite openoffice libreoffice calligra and i don't think you need a deb package ,

That was foolish of me haha
But it seems I'm faced with different problems instead.

When I run the code on a separate harddisk partition :

Code: Select all

/usr/bin/ar: data.tar.lzma: No space left on device
When I run the code in Porteus home folders :

Code: Select all

cp: error writing ‘/tmp/deb2xzm4553/kingsoft-office_9.1.0.4244~a12p3_i386-1.deb’: No space left on device
cp: failed to extend ‘/tmp/deb2xzm4553/kingsoft-office_9.1.0.4244~a12p3_i386-1.deb’: No space left on device
Well...?

Where did you installed porteus? How much space is left on the partition where you installed porteus? You can use command fdisk -l to get the information.

When you report the results, please give us full output. For example:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# fdisk -l

I did not install Porteus, am using it live from my USB. Is it because of that? I am still new to the concept of portable OS.

Your space is limited with RAM.
You can try this:
1. Unpack .deb, or .tar.xz archive
2. Go to https://www.dropbox.com/sh/7elwcgmk5mwtmme/FmFMsdUIO8 and download wps-kso-usr-tree.xzm
3. Extract wps-kso-usr-tree.xzm, change paths in et, wps and wpp (they are in /usr/bin/ of extracted xzm module) to your current paths for unpacked kingsoft-office.
4. Delete old module and build new one (right mouse button menu) of extracted xzm module.
5. Activate new module.

How small is your computer? :roll: Do free -m, and let's see. Example:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ free -m
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:           880        798         81          0         11        313
-/+ buffers/cache:        473        406
Swap:          644        135        508
Also be interesting to see result from df -h .

@wsssixteen

I agree with tome Porteus is running in RAM and limited to 40% of it if I'm not mistaken. Try using the cheatcode ramsize=80% and see if that helps.

Bogomips df -h command will help verify the usage also.
