Will the debian repo be updated for Bionic?

Post by MartinHowe » Fri Apr 27, 2018 19:56

Hello Team

I am currently unable to build SLADE for Linux due to the instructions being way out of date. The issue I created for that has been marked "TODO"; however, in the meantime, I have been using the builds made by DRD Team, listed as follows on the SLADE home page:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-add-repository 'deb http://debian.drdteam.org/ stable multiverse'
wget -O- http://debian.drdteam.org/drdteam.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
However, this does not work on the latest release of *Ubuntu as that is 18.04 LTS ("Bionic Beaver") as the repository hasn't yet been configured to support that.

Please can this be done?

Workaround for Ubuntu 18.04LTS: Thanks to some kind advice from Blzut3 in his capacity as DRD Team admin, it seems the DRD Team repo does work on the latest Ubuntu, you just need to ignore the apt-add-repository commands error messages. If you go ahead and run the get key line, it still works. It seems also that running the get key bit first might prevent the error anyway.
