DEBiTool 0.1.6

DEBiTool – the new Sparky’s tool was under heavy development in the last few days, and has been updated up to version 0.1.6.

What is DEBiTool?
It is a small tool which lets you install a deb package from your local disk, and reinstall or remove it as well. It uses Yad to display all messages.

Changelog:
– added package checking if is not installed yet
– added Brazilian locale, thank’s Daniel and Elton
– added dependency check out which simulate the deps installation and display different infos if dependency is satisfiable or not, to avoid trying installation which could be broken if deps are not accessable
– removed dpkg from the tool dependency; all checks, compares, searches is done by APT now
– many small fixes and impromenments

Installation/Update:
apt update
apt install debi-tool

DEBiTool

The tool is already localized into English, Brazilian and Polish, so translate to any different language, please.

Test it please and if you find any problem or have an idea how to improve it – simply post it at our forums.

 

DEBiTool

There is a new, small tool available for Sparkers: DEBiTool.

What is DEBiTool?
It is a small tool which lets you install a deb package from your local disk, and reinstall or remove it as well. It uses Yad to display all messages.

It can be used as an alternative for GDebi-GTK or GDebi-KDE.

The name of DEBiTool is effect of quick work of our small but strong community (FB). We needed 20 minuts about to get a compromise and find a name to the new tool 🙂

Installation:
apt update
apt install debi-tool

Usage:
1. Right click on a deb package -> Open with DEBiTool Package Installer (or set it as a default tool to open deb files); or
2. Menu-> System-> DEBiTool-> choose a deb file from your local drive; or
3. From a command line:
debi-tool your-package.deb

Make sure it is the first version so… if you find any problem or have an idea how to improve it – simply post it at our forums, please.

 

DEB Package Builder 0.2.0

 

I have made some important changes in the ‘DEB Package Builder’ tool so I changed the number from 0.1.x to 0.2.x.

There are 2 changes:
– moved the script from Zenity to Yad
– added locales support so it works with English or Polish locales now.

Switching the tool to Yad needs some testing so please do, and let me know is everything ok.

The ‘DEB Package Builder’ is a fork of ‘DEB Builder’ originally created by Tony Brijeski.
It lets you build a simple deb packages which can be installed on Debian based Linux distributions.
