Linux Mint 20 issue

Postby macgrioghair » Tue Sep 01, 2020 5:20 pm

I am getting dependency issues due to python on LM20 for the fah control deb - fahcontrol_7.6.13-1_all.
Is there going to be a fix for this soon?

'Soon' depends on your definition! We've only had python 3 for 10 years and the end of life for python 2 was announced 6 years ago, so don't hold your breath!

I did a Mint 20 install last night and got away with:
Code: Select all
sudo apt install python-is-python2
wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/p/pygtk/python-gtk2_2.24.0-6_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i python-gtk2_2.24.0-6_amd64.deb


I found the info here: viewtopic.php?f=108&t=35707

I presume you could still run the browser client (not as fancy), and manually adjust parameters in config.txt?

I recently changed from LM19.1 to LM20. I have the Client working ok, but am unable to install the Control function, due to python probs. When I started up the Client I inserted the wrong Team number then discovered that I am able to change my login details at client folding at home. It's a workaround of sorts.

Welcome to the F@H Forum roodog46,

You can manually update the team number from the incorrect one to the correct on if you manually modify config.xml. However, you would need to careful to modify just the numbers as changing the data structure isn't well tolerated by the client (hence using FahControl is ideal).
