cannot install on ubuntu-14.04-lts

Postby freelsjd » Thu Nov 19, 2015 12:15 am

My Ubuntu-14.04-lts installation is current and up-to-date with all patches. I also have nvidia opengl drivers installed. The following output from my installation attempt explains the problem. When I try to issue "apt-get -f install", it wants to delete several hundred packages, which of course, I will not do, so I am stuck. I also have softmaker-2012 for linux installed and it works fine. Should I delete it ? Also, the package libgl1-mesa-glx IS installed on this system too, so why this error message. I have a 64-bit system with 32-bit packaging set up with multi-arch. Another question: why 32-bit ? Who still uses 32-bit ? Can you even purchase a 32-bit machine these days ?

I could properly install softmaker-office-2016_748-01_i386.deb in Ubuntu 14.04.2 64bit gnome via dkpg -i. I will refer your issue to our developers.

I was able to install the linux beta on a Debian/Jessie system. I then looked at what mesa packages were installed on the Debian/Jessie system, and then installed the same packages onto the Ubuntu/Trusty system. Below is a listing of the script that was created to do this.

apt-get install \
libegl1-mesa:amd64 \
libgl1-mesa-dri:amd64 \
libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 \
libgl1-mesa-glx:amd64 \
libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 \
libglapi-mesa:amd64 \
libglapi-mesa:i386 \
libglu1-mesa:amd64 \
libglu1-mesa:i386 \
libwayland-egl1-mesa:amd64 \

This then resulted in a large number of additional packages that needed to be installed using the "apt-get -f install" command as recommended by the Softmaker installation instructions.

I think in addition, I will now re-install the Nvidia commercial graphics drivers which should override some of the mesa files that need to be overridden in order to use the Nvidia drivers. I should be OK now.
