Upgrade 02/11/2014
« on: November 02, 2014, 01:06:20 pm »
Be careful with today's (02/Nov/2014) system upgrading.
It makes a mess in LXDE desktop packages.
It can make a problem in other sparky desktops using lxpolkit, such as: enlightenment, razor-qt, jwm and openbox - haven't checked it yet.
Don't rush with the upgrading, wait until situation will be clear.

p.s.
If you use the new tool 'sparky-aptus-upgrade' - it stops upgrading before making changes.

I tried to upgrade lxde, but it failed.
I also tried to upgrade lxde from sid - failed too.
I removed lxde but I couldn't install it back.
The problem was with lxsession-logout package which makes problem with the new lxsession (include the same files).
It drives me crazy.
I changed my desktop for Xfce now.
You can make normal upgrade (apt-get upgrade) without a problem.

That's great, I haven't upgraded my system today, it's still waiting to be finished.

I am running E18 or i was ...  could not do the upgrade at first .

I did the upgrade by doing ...

apt-get remove enlightenment lightdm-gtk-greeter
apt-get install e19
 
Then worked with no problem...  (If you do have a problem aptitude can fix it as was mentioned, I also used aptitude to recover when the update failed the first time .....  )

On the restart on course i was in shell

loged in as user

$ startx

Then i reinstalled lightdm-gtk-greeter   

Been up and running for about 20 ins now ... CPU temp is down an average of 5C

I'm using Sparkylinux JWM. I upgraded my system and then came to read this post. I didn't notice any problems up until now. And then I just remembered you said something about lxpolkit so I clicked on mint tools, both the format and usb write tool and noticed that they no longer start from JWM edited menu but, they do start if I open the application-menu folder. I need to check my jwmrc.xml maybe changes made recently are causing this problem.

Yeah! That is mistake on my behalf. I changed the jwmrc.xml entry and added remsu before the path of the both of the mint tools. After I removed the remsu they are working.

So the upgrade comes with no problems for Sparkylinux JWM. Atleast that is what I think is true.

LXDE edition:
- all lxde packages have to be removed with 'siduction' in their names
- new 'lxsession' 0.5.1 package provides its own 'lxpolkit' and 'lxsession-logout' tools so we don't need 'lxpolkit' and 'lxsession-logout' siduction's packages any more
- new 'lxsession' provides its own 'lxpolkit.desktop' as well, so '~HOME/.config/autostart/lxpolkit.desktop' has to be removed

JWM edition: doesn't require your attention.
Keep installed 'lxpolkit' and 'lxsession-data'.

Openbox edition: 'lxsession' and 'lxsession-logout' packages are useless, can be removed.
Keep installed 'lxpolkit' and 'lxsession-data'.

Razor-Qt edition: doesn't require your attention.
Keep installed 'lxpolkit' and 'lxsession-data'.

Enlightenment edition: doesn't require your attention.
Keep installed 'lxpolkit' and 'lxsession-data'.

MATE and Xfce editions don't use 'lxpolkit' so they are ok.
