sohail-ahmedn python I can direct the installation files to a certain directory with use of --prefix, do we have any like this with apt or aptitude in linux???16:13
brainwashsohail-ahmed: dpkg has --instdir=16:15
sohail-ahmedbrainwash: does dpkg can handle non-distribution packages?16:23
brainwash_sohail-ahmed: it handles .deb packages16:24
brainwash_all valid ones16:24
sohail-ahmedbrainwash: So this is not a solution if I have .tar file, correct??16:25
sohail-ahmedbrainwash_: but you just said it handles only .deb files?16:28
brainwash_I meant it's not a general solution16:29
brainwash_I don't know what you are trying to achieve exactly, maybe you want to ask in ##linux16:29
brainwash_or #ubuntu16:30
sohail-ahmedbrainwash: In #ubuntu no body responded. Please just confirm that dpkg could not install .tar files16:31
brainwash_how do you install a .tar file? it's not a package, and dpkg is a package manager16:32
Picisohail-ahmed: dpkg can only install .deb files.16:33
brainwash_you initial question mentioned apt/aptidude, so I assumed that you are talking about debian packages16:33
sohail-ahmedbrainwash_: Corect. But usually .tar file have bash/make file and I just trying to figure it out how to force them to install at certain location16:33
brainwash_I see16:34
JeZxLeewhere is release candidate?16:34
brainwash_so, you could even ask in #bash16:35
Picisohail-ahmed: typically those options are set during the configure16:35
sohail-ahmedfor example I can install texlive with sudo apt-get texlive.. but as I am trying to understand that with this way can I control their installation directories or not16:35
Picisohail-ahmed: apt-get does not allow you to change the directories that things are installed into.  All of that in configured during the packaging stage.16:35
brainwash_the first step would be to read the manual page16:35
sohail-ahmedPici: but with .tar file in hand how can I control packaging?16:36
Picisohail-ahmed: You don't.  You need to read the README or INSTALL or similar documentation that is inside the tar to figure out how to configure the install locaiton,.16:36
PiciAnyway, this is the same thing that you're being told in #python too16:39
sohail-ahmedPici, brainwash_: thanks for your help. Their bash file can accept the installation directory option. thanks for your time16:44
xubuntu891Im ERic18:20
xubuntu891and im using xubuntu18:20
xubuntu891But there is one thing i want to say.18:20
mrkrampshi =)19:15
melodieI have noticed something annoying with Bleachbit on the latest Xubuntu editions: the exec line in the desktop file uses some pkexec king of command for the root version of bleachbit19:15
melodiefrom there, when you configure bleachbit, the configuration file is the same for user and for root, which is very wrong19:16
mrkrampsmelodie, yes … several applications use policykit19:16
melodieI have started bleanchbit with gksu and with gksu it works the right way19:16
melodieif you guys could check my finding, and bring the information upstream to the packager that would be nice19:17
melodieI have installed Xubuntu for someone about 10 days ago, and I didn't find time to take care of that (I'm an Archlinux user but I install *buntu editions for the users)19:17
melodiefor the user I modified the desktop file to make it use gksu (and placed it in his .local/share/applications directory)19:18
melodiemrkramps policykit=pkexec ?19:22
melodieor rather reverse pkexec is a policykit tool?19:22
mrkrampsactually this command makes other applications use policykit to gain the proper rights19:22
mrkrampsgparted or synaptic use it as well19:23
melodieBleachbit does not support what is in it's desktop file19:24
melodiegksu is needed to make it create a proper configuration file meant only for the root-bleachbit side19:24
melodieother methods fail to make it have a different configuration file, which is a bummer when I make simple users use bleachbit, they have to have their configuration all done for them19:25
brainwash_please file a bug report on launchpad.net19:25
melodieagainst bleachbit?19:26
brainwash_well, yes19:26
brainwash_you want to inform the package maintainer19:26
melodieshould I check each bleachbit version to be sure it's the same everywhere?19:26
melodieyes I want to inform him19:26
brainwash_feel free to do some testing19:27
melodieI bet I might need to check the packages at Debian too19:27
brainwash_probably, most packages are synced from debian19:27
melodiebrainwash_ I don't need testing, just unpack debs and check their desktop files19:27
melodieyes right19:28
melodietesting I have done already19:28
melodiein my user's machine :D19:28
melodieoh gosh that was my first dual-boot with a windows 8 and uefi + gpt!19:28
