View Full Version : [ubuntu] Cant get Fuppes to install

March 25th, 2009, 05:05 PM
I have a PS3 and I was using MediaTomb but it kept losing my directory's which in turn caused me to lose my mind a little.

I keep trying to install Fuppes but from the get go I get this output
after I type sudo apt-get remove autoconf.

chris@otacon:~$ sudo apt-get remove autoconf

Package autoconf is not installed, so not removed
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
fuppes: Depends: libavcodec1d (>= 0.cvs20070307) but it is not installable
Depends: libavformat1d (>= 0.cvs20070307) but it is not installable
Depends: libavutil1d (>= 0.cvs20070307) but it is not installable
Depends: libmagick++10 but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libsimage20 but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libswscale1d (>= 0.cvs20070307) but it is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

I don't know what any of that means what am I doing wrong?

looks like you have broken dependencies, do as your error says and run the command in terminal
sudo apt-get -f install the -f options means fix broken ,then try and install your prog again

Ha that seems pretty obvious thanks man I am really new to this.

post the output of any more errors as well as more info ie where you are installing from (source or whatever) and what distro you are running and what all you have done to this point. also include the instructions for the install if possible...ok

That worked perfectly thanks man!

One more question.

In the instructions for install Fuppes he says this:

The tricky part is getting a proper fuppes.cfg file in order. You can find a fuppes.cfg in the forums, but I modified mine so that I am NOT transcoding vids to my Xbox 360--again, no need to.

Here is my fuppes.cfg file. You will have to change to direct to your personal folders up top, and in network section set up to your ip addy and port. Just cut and paste my whole file over your whole file (after making a backup copy of yours in case it does not work), make changes in folder area and network area, and save it. Also, place this in your home/**your user name**/.fuppes directory (the hidden one again, Ctrl+h to toggle hidden folders). You will need admin rights to do this.

I cant find the fuppes.cfg anywhere I looked in my Home/etc and Home/ directories. Is there anyway I can open it from the terminal.

files starting with . eg .fuppes are hidden by default you can open it 2 ways
1.use nautilus(your file browser) goto > places > home folder > click on "view" and tick "show hidden files" now you should be able to see it . open the file by right click and choose "open with text editor"
2. if the file is in your home directory you can view it by doing this command in terminal
gedit .thenameofyourfile where .nameofyourfile is the file you want to edit ,make sure you save any changes eg the code you paste into it

i learn most of the stuff on this forum and reading linuxformat magazine and just generally asking "how to's" on the net:lolflag:
