Installation on Debian

Post #1by levente » 27.04.2020, 12:46

I followed the guides to add debian repositories, but when I try to add the software, it says 403 forbidden.

Any clues?

i have a 100% debian clean build of Celestia
the only thing is you have to build it
https://github.com/JohnVV/MyCelestiaBuild

i had a long post about installing from the debain reops but the FUCKING captia kiled it
it reloaded BACK TO THE BLEEPPING captia


now rant over if this goes through you can build the OC 1.7
https://github.com/CelestiaProject/Celestia

but it is not 100% GPL code
and not 100% debain clean code ( at least it was not a few months ago )


to install from the debian repos you need to install the NON free repo

then use atp-get


but this is the old 1.5/1.6 code
and DOSE NOT use qt5 at the gui


mine is a bit old but it is 100% debain clean and builds without any errors

Added after 5 minutes 15 seconds:

Your fork doesn't have any new features or bug fixes. I don't see any reason to keep it and moreover recommend it to anybody.

WHAT? Please stop spreading FUD. It doesn't have any non-free bits and it's 100% compatible with Debian and we provide packages for current Debian and Ubuntu.
