Problems on Debian Squeeze

edited 1:43AM in Development


running OpenLP 1.9.1 on Debian Squeeze and have encountered a few issues.

  • the songs panel on the media manager is missing. I can however enable the others (Media/Presentations/Images) and load files etc.
  • alerts, songs and bibles plugins do not seem to be available despite being in the underlying filesystem
  • Tools->Add tool does not work (no visible change when selecting)

Just FYI, the following do work

  • dual screen
  • loading images/media/presentations

Hopped over to irc but nobody was around. Any other info needed pls let me know.

    You need to install SQLAlchemy 0.5.x, lxml and BeautifulSoup in order for the Songs, Bibles and Custom Slides plugins to work. If you don't have a "python-sqlalchemy" package as recently as 0.5.x, you'll need to install SQLAlchemy using "easy_install".

    By the way, if you'd spent more than a minute in IRC, and said something, you might have had a response. Most folks are working, and don't sit in IRC all day waiting for people to come in...

    Thanks for the response. I had installed those packages but I'll need to check the versions (not on that laptop right now). According to though the version of python-sqlalchemy is 0.5.8-1 so that's probably what I have installed.

    I've since install 1.9.1 on a Kubuntu (9.10) box via ppa and it's fine there so I am guessing it must be something odd with the Debian packages. if I discover what it is I'll get back to you.


    P.S. Sorry if the IRC bit caused offence. It wasn't a criticism, more of an explanation as to why I hadn't asked there. I too was at work at the time and my lunch break was fast ending so I couldn't hang around myself very long.

    Found the problem - there was a local apt-cache problem which prevented python-sqlalchemy from being installed. I fixed that and reinstalled and it all works fine now (except Tools->Add Tool but that's not a deal-breaker as they say).

    Thanks for a fine piece of work.

    Tools -> Add Tool doesn't work because there's nothing there yet. Wink
