Thread subject: sK1 Project :: Wont run on Debian Squeeze... what have I forgotten?

Posted by flipjarg on 29-11-2010 17:01

I am running Debian Squeeze (SK1 now shows up in my Applications Menu!) I just uninstalled an older version of SK1 that was working... downloaded the Ubuntu 10.10 packages, like I did last time and used dpkg to install them. For some reason I get this message when I try to run SK1:

[email protected]:/home/userName/Desktop# sk1

Sorry for delay in responding.

The problem looks like sk1libs package absence. Did you installed sk1libs and sk1sdk packages?

some solution? anybody?
I've installed k1libs and sk1sdk packages (Ubuntu 10.10; 2.6.35-23-generic).

Which Ubuntu version are you using: 32bit or 64bit? Do sk1 packages correspond your system version?

#6 32bit and I think using the right packages

yep, i have a similar issue, using the same package, on squeeze. App doesn't run, opens, shows up on task manager, but never actually opens. Been looking around trying to figure out if i have some missing decencies, and i thought i read that there is a list of dependencies somewhere? Anyone. to bad, i used to run this software on Mandriva, and was very happy with it. maybe at some point some simple solution will come around
