Title: Install Scribus 1.4 on Debian Squeeze
Post by: snuggles on July 12, 2012, 08:55:21 pm
I installed from the stable repositories (squeeze), so I got 1.3. Tried to install 1.4 from testing (wheezy), ran into dependecy problems. Is there a way to install version 1.4 in squeeze? It was installed before, converted my files to the 1.4-format, but I can't remeber how I did the installation. Could someone help?

yep, by using the scribus own repositories.

please read

... and you're welcome to ask further questions if that page is not clear enough :-)

good luck

O.k., thanks for your help. I saw this page before and did exactly what is described (see below). As a result I always get Scribus 1.3.5, but not 1.4.  Do I need some post-install upgrades?

Scribus 1.4 is package "scribus", not "scribus-ng".

Don't you also have to reload the sources list before it will find the new repositories?

I always do things like this in Synaptic where it shows me graphically exactly which packages are available.

Yes, right, an "apt-get update" is needed before the install.

Did update before, tried to install scribus (not scibus-ng), but didn't work (no package scribus found), so I stuck to ng. Can't really figure out the problem. Anyway, now it works.  :D Thanks a lot!
