    Re: Ubuntuzilla testing: please help if you can :)

    I may be partially answering my own question:

    Code:
    lance@lance-desktop:~$ ubuntuzilla.py -a remove -p firefox
    ubuntuzilla.py: command not found
    lance@lance-desktop:~$ ubuntuzilla.py -a remove -p thunderbird
    ubuntuzilla.py: command not found
    lance@lance-desktop:~$ ubuntuzilla.py -a remove -p seamonkey
    ubuntuzilla.py: command not found
    lance@lance-desktop:~$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list

    You can see that with the last Ubuntuzilla .deb repo still installed running the "py -a remove -p" commands fails.

    Stay tuned.

    I questioned whether or not to that with Firefox but next I'll use the Software Sources gui to remove the Ubuntuzilla repo and then I'll start over.

    Err, well I'll see what kind of Firefox I end up with in Karmic now. I want to be sure I have the Ubuntu version of Firefox. (I'm sure I do anyway)

    OK so I removed your repo and gpg key and closed Firefox, then ran update, etc:

    Oddly Firefox still seems to work with the firefox package removed so I may need to revisit this with the Live CD just as a double check.

    Re: Ubuntuzilla testing: please help if you can :)

    I just wanted to say that during my last testing instead of:

    Code:
    ubuntuzilla.py -a remove -p firefox
    ubuntuzilla.py -a remove -p thunderbird
    ubuntuzilla.py -a remove -p seamonkey
    I just ran:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get --purge remove <each package>
    Then after removing the existing Ubuntuzilla repo I started fresh. I hope I didn't somehow hose the testing process.

    As I'm still learning I'd appreciate a brief explanation regarding the difference between the two when you have time.

    Note: I am tired so if I run into trouble you might not hear from me again for about 24 hours.
    ok, so... it seems that i need to clarify what ubuntuzilla actually does.

    in broad strokes, what it does is the following:
    1. grab the tar.gz archive from mozilla, extract it into /opt,
    2. divert the existing /usr/bin/<package> link to /usr/bin/<package>.ubuntu
    3. make its own symlink in /usr/bin/<package> that now points to the binary in /opt

    so, when you to "ubuntuzilla.py -a remove -p <package>", it undoes all that. namely:
    1. delete the symlink in /usr/bin/<package> that points to /opt
    2. undivert the repositories /usr/bin/<package>.ubuntu back to /usr/bin/<package>
    3. delete the extracted files from /opt.

    if you don't do that, and instead just do a "sudo apt-get remove <package>", what that does is remove the repositories version of the package, but all the stuff that ubuntuzilla has installed remains intact - including the diversion of the repositories symlink that is still stored in the database.

    it is that local diversion that will conflict with the 'new' diversion that the new repository repacks of mozilla packages will be attempting. (you can, of course, simply manually remove the diversion)

    if you want to see the existing diversions on your system, you can run "dpkg-divert --list", any diversions that are done by ubuntuzilla will be listed as 'local diversion'.

    hope that clarifies things.

    so in all - well, you didn't 'hose' the testing process, but if you run into any diversion errors during install... you'll know why they're there.

    You can see that with the last Ubuntuzilla .deb repo still installed running the "py -a remove -p" commands fails.

    Stay tuned.
    yes, the ubuntuzilla.py command fails, because apparently you have uninstalled the ubuntuzilla package itself.

    the repo that is listed in your sources.list is the "mozilla repacks" repo, not the "ubuntuzilla script installation repo", by the way, which is as it should be, for testing the mozilla repacks.

    well, from what you told me, since you didn't run "ubuntuzilla.py -a remove", the ubuntuzilla-installed package of firefox is still there in /opt, and is being linked to from /usr/bin/firefox (as you should be able to verify by running "ls -al /usr/bin/firefox")

    so no surprise that firefox is still there.

    to find out whether you are running the ubuntu or the mozilla-build version of firefox, just go to help-> about in firefox. if it's the ubuntu version, it will say "firefox bla bla bla ubuntu", while if it's the mozilla-build, it won't mention ubuntu. (or, just look at where your /usr/bin/firefox is pointing)

    That worked fine although I must say I've never seen a package name separated with dots in Synaptic. That and the menu name:

    Seamonkey works perfectly though! Plugins linked etc.
    the results don't look odd at all.
    first, you installed the ubuntu-repos-version of seamonkey, with package 'seamonkey', which installed successfully.

    then you installed the mozilla-repack of the latest seamonkey, with package seamonkey.mozilla.build, which also installed successfully, symlinked itself as /usr/bin/seamonkey, and diverted the ubuntu-repos version to /usr/bin/seamonkey.ubuntu.

    so now, you have /usr/bin/seamonkey pointing to the mozilla-build of seamonkey, and all's nice.

    you didn't actually have to install the ubuntu-repos version of seamonkey, it should work with just the seamonkey.mozilla.build package. your ubuntu-repos version is just sitting there taking up disk space now. but either way, they don't interfere with each other.

    so... encouraging results from the seamonkey test.

    as far as the package name: yes, they tend to use dashes in package names in the repos, but i looked up the debian packaging official documentation, and dots are acceptable in package names, to i went with dots, because i like dots. (also note, e.g., the openoffice.org-<bla> packages).

    as far as the menu name - i deliberatedy stuck "mozilla build of <bla>" as the title, to make it clear.

    Look:

    Both Karmic's Firefox and your Firefox show up and both work! That's awesome!

    As I said I don't really use Thunderbird so I can't comment much on that but this looks very good.

    However lets take the time to get this right! I'm tired so we need to do more testing, I'm dieing to see how this will work in Hardy (it's probably the most likely candidate for needing a newer browser version).

    I also wonder about the usage of dot (.) in naming. I've never seen that, it's usually more like "firefox-mozilla-build".

    I have tried the icons in the tray and they look great so I think you're heading in the right direction. It's cool to have things coexist!

    Don't hesitate to correct me if I'm doing something wrong and please feel free to critique me on anything, you have an excellent project and the success of the project is the goal.

    Re: Ubuntuzilla testing: please help if you can :)

    so now we know seamonkey works fine... curious to see what happens with thunderbird and firefox.
    thanks a lot for your help!

    EDIT: oh heh, you posted ff and tb test results already. well, very encouraging!

    One thing to note though: i suspect that both the "plain firefox" menu item and the 'mozilla build of firefox' items point at the same place, namely, /usr/bin/firefox, which is, due to the divert, pointing to the mozilla build. that is possibly a source of confusion... but shouldn't be a big deal, methinks...

    looking forward to hardy results

    EDIT2: if you really think it would make people scratch heads, it would be trivial to change package names to '<package>-mozilla-build'. i suppose that would be more in line with conventional usage...
