    Xecure,

    “There is still a lot to work on. I didn’t build it for myself, but thinking in marcelocripe. There are better programs out there, so this project was simply to learn and practice scripting. I know it isn’t anything special , so be as brutal as you want with your feedback, it will not hurt. This was a learning exercise and all problems you see is for me to practice and improve my skills. ”

    I am very grateful for the kindness, for all your help, for taking the time to develop this program and still share it.

    I want to be able to help with all the tests you need.

    If you are going to start a new topic, please paste the link to the new topic in this topic.

    I will soon post the tests that I will start today.

    Thank you very much.

    Sou muito grato pela gentileza, por toda a sua ajuda, por disponibilizar o seu tempo para desenvolver este programa e ainda compartilhá lo.

    Eu quero poder ajudar com todos os testes que você necessitar.

    Se você for iniciar um novo tópico, por favor cole neste tópico o link do novo.

    Em breve posto os testes que começarei hoje.

    Muito obrigado.

    Xecure,

    First test with the new version of your program (Thanks!):

    After downloading the file and unzipping, right-click on “myAPTOfflineRepo.sh”, Open, Execute, opened the My OFFLINE repo window, clicking the Download Dependencies option, the message “Error connecting to dbus: Could not parse server address : Unknown address type (examples of valid types are “tcp” and on UNIX “unix”) “, Ok, opened ROXTerm, asked for the user password and then closed, clicked again on Download Dependencies and the message was repeated” Error connecting to dbus: Could not parse server address: Unknown address type (examples of valid types are “tcp” and on UNIX “unix”) “, Ok, opened ROXTerm and then closed.

    Unfortunately I couldn’t get past that …

    Thankful.

    Xecure,

    Primeiro teste com a nova versão do seu programa (Obrigado!):

    Após baixar o arquivo e descompactar, botão direito do mouse sobre “myAPTOfflineRepo.sh”, Open, Execute, abriu a janela My OFFLINE repo, clicando na opção Download Dependencies, surgiu a mensagem “Erro ao conectar para dbus:Could not parse server address:Unknown address type (examples of valid types are “tcp” and on UNIX “unix”)”, Ok, abriu o ROXTerm, solicitou a senha de usuário e em seguida fechou, cliquei novamente em Download Dependencies e a mensagem voltou a repetir “Erro ao conectar para dbus:Could not parse server address:Unknown address type (examples of valid types are “tcp” and on UNIX “unix”)”, Ok, abriu o ROXTerm e fechou em seguida.

    Infelizmente eu não consegui passar disso …

    Grato.

    @ marcelocripe

    Did you install rdepends and other dependency Xecure mentioned in his post. Before clicking.

    clicking the Download Dependencies option, the message “Error connecting to dbus: Could not parse server address : Unknown address type (examples of valid types are “tcp” and on UNIX “unix”) “, Ok, opened ROXTerm, asked for the user password and then closed, clicked again on Download Dependencies and the message was repeated” Error connecting to dbus: Could not parse server address: Unknown address type (examples of valid types are “tcp” and on UNIX “unix”) “, Ok, opened ROXTerm and then closed.

    I cannot reproduce this in antiX 19.2.1 base 32 bits, 64 bits, or full. . As far as I know, I am not using dbus for any part of the script, but something else is (probably), and that is giving your system trouble.
    If you open a terminal and do “sudo apt update” and just after that try the script (I can only imagine it is gksu the reason, I don’t know).

    All new posts about this should be created in a different topic specifically for this program:
    https://www.antixforum.com/forums/topic/apt-based-offline-repo-small-yad-bash-project/

    Thank you both for giving me your time to test this out.

    Hello PPC and Xecure,

    Anyway I was able to read and test CubeGet, I accessed the site https://cube.camicri.com/#/, with the help of the browser translation, I read everything, every step, yesterday I managed to try to implement it, but unfortunately , was unsuccessful. They are tools like this and the one that Xecure is developing, they are exactly what I need, considering that, I tried to apply the command taught by Xecure to download the sudo packages apt-get download $ (apt-rdepends “$ {package} “| grep -v ^ \), but I couldn’t understand it enough to be able to use it and be able to download the programs to later install on computers without internet access with the command sudo dpkg -i packagename1 dependency1 dependency2 … or with the command sudo dpkg -i *.

    Tests I did with CubeGet:

    I accessed the site:
    https://cube.camicri.com/#/download

    With the computer with internet access I downloaded the Linux version program
    cube-get 4.3-1.3 (64 bit)
    https://launchpad.net/cube-server/4.0/4-0.1/+download/cube-get_4.3-1.3_linux.zip

    I copied the file cube-get_4.3-1.3_linux.zip to a pendrive, with SpaceFm, pasted it to the computer without internet access and unzipped the file. Right-click on cube-get, Properties, Permissions, I checked all read, write and execute options for owner, group and others, Ok. Right-click on cube-get, Open, Execute, ROXTerm is opened, are displayed in two commands, then the Firefox ESR 68.6.0 browser opens, but the cube-get menu is not displayed.

    I tried it via terminal, according to the instructions on the site https://cube.camicri.com/#/setup-linux, opened the terminal in the cube-get folder and typed the command
    User @ antiX: ~ / Download / cube-get_4.3-1.3_linux / cube-get
    $ chmod + x cube-get
    $. / cube –terminal

    As it didn’t show the cube-get menu, I still tried to change the network settings for Firefox ESR 68.6.0, checking the option “No proxy”, but that was not it.

    The terminal displays the message:
    $. / cube –terminal
    [Server] xterm not found! Will use defaut terminal
    [Server] Exited

    Xecure, I will test the new version, soon I will return with the results of the tests, thank you for your kindness in making this tool available that will be extremely important to me.

    I still need to test http://www.penguintutor.com/linux/apt-get-offline and https://askubuntu.com/questions/835655/install-a-program-with-apt-offline, but really, a graphical tool makes Linux beginners’ lives much easier, as it would be good if in Linux distributions it was each program in its respective directory and that each program came complete.

    Thankful.

    Olá PPC e Xecure,

    Enfim eu consegui ler e testar o CubeGet, eu acessei o site https://cube.camicri.com/#/, com a ajuda da tradução do navegador, eu li tudo, cada passo, ontem eu consegui tentar implementar, mas, infelizmente, foi sem sucesso. São ferramentas como esta e a que o Xecure está desenvolvendo, são exatamente o que eu preciso, haja vista que, eu tentei aplicar o comando ensinado pelo Xecure para baixar os pacotes sudo apt-get download $(apt-rdepends “${package}” | grep -v ^\ ), mas eu não consegui compreendê-lo o suficiente para conseguir usá-lo e poder baixar os programas para posteriormente instalar nos computadores sem acesso a internet com o comando sudo dpkg -i packagename1 dependency1 dependency2 … ou com o comando sudo dpkg -i *.

    Testes que eu fiz com o CubeGet:

    Acessei o site:
    https://cube.camicri.com/#/download

    Com o computador com acesso a internet baixei o programa versão para Linux
    cube-get 4.3-1.3 (64 bit)
    https://launchpad.net/cube-server/4.0/4-0.1/+download/cube-get_4.3-1.3_linux.zip

    Copiei para um pendrive o arquivo cube-get_4.3-1.3_linux.zip, com o SpaceFm, colei para o computador sem acesso a internet e descompactei o arquivo. Botão direito do mouse sobre cube-get, Properties, Permissions, marquei todas as opções de leitura, escrita e execução para proprietário, grupo e outros, Ok. Botão direito do mouse sobre cube-get, Open, Execute, o ROXTerm é aberto, são exibidos em dois comandos, em seguida abre o navegador Firefox ESR 68.6.0, mas o menu do cube-get não é exibido.

    Eu tentei via terminal, conforme as instruções do site https://cube.camicri.com/#/setup-linux, abri o terminal na pasta do cube-get e digitei o comando
    Usuario@antiX:~/Download/ cube-get_4.3-1.3_linux/cube-get
    $chmod +x cube-get
    $./cube –terminal

    Como não exibia o menu do cube-get, eu tentei ainda mudar a configurações de rede do Firefox ESR 68.6.0, marcando a opção “Sem proxy”, mas não era isso.

    No terminal exibe a mensagem:
    $./cube –terminal
    [Server] xterm not found! Will use defaut terminal
    [Server] Exited

    Xecure, eu vou testar a nova versão, em breve eu retorno com o resultado dos testes, agradeço pela gentileza em disponibilizar esta ferramenta que será de extrema importância para mim.

    Ainda falta eu testar o http://www.penguintutor.com/linux/apt-get-offline e https://askubuntu.com/questions/835655/install-a-program-with-apt-offline, mas realmente, uma ferramenta em gráfica facilita muito a vida dos novatos em Linux, como seria bom se nas distribuições Linux fosse cada programa no seu respectivo diretório e que cada programa vinhesse completo.

    Grato.

    Hello dear colleagues.

    I would like to add another suggestion to the developers and maintainers of antiX Linux.

    After searching here on the forum and on the website https://antixlinux.com/, I couldn’t find the true antiX story. DistroWatch information at https://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=antix is not enough and I don’t know if it is correct.

    I would like to know the true story of antiX, if it is in text and on the website, it will be even better, as we can understand with the translators.

    Thankful.

    Olá caros colegas.

    Eu gostaria de acrescentar outra sugestão aos desenvolvedores e mantenedores do antiX Linux.

    Após procurar aqui no fórum e no site https://antixlinux.com/, eu não consegui encontrar a verdadeira história do antiX. As informações do DistroWatch no link https://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=antix, não são suficientes e eu não sei se estão corretas.

    Eu gostaria de conhecer a verdadeira história do antiX, se for em texto e no site, será ainda melhor, pois conseguimos compreender com os tradutores.

    Grato.

    anticapitalista would be the best resource to answer this question. At one time I had all of the information about the beginnings – and I used both the earliest versions of MEPIS and (slightly later) the first announced version of antiX. I hesitate to say more unless I can back it up with verifiable information. anti – care to comment?

    About antiX
    antiX is a fast, lightweight and easy to install linux live CD distribution based on MEPIS for Intel-AMD x86 compatible systems. antiX offers users the “Magic of Mepis” in an environment suitable for old computers. So don’t throw away that old computer yet! The goal of antiX is to provide a light, but fully functional and flexible free operating system for both newcomers and experienced users of Linux. It should run on most computers, ranging from 64MB old PII 266 systems with pre-configured 128MB RAM to the latest powerful boxes. 128MB RAM is recommended for antiX.

    A third one that shows what was going on for a little while – Warren Woodford, the MEPIS founder, switched from Debian to Ubuntu repositories for a while, hoping to get easy to use, stable software. After a while with that “experiment, MEPIS – and antiX along with it, went back to using Debian software. (I used both, and didn’t have any problems with it, but this small window of time were among the “most unstable” of the MEPIS and antiX history that I can think of or remember):

    20 September 2007

    antiX-M7-rc1 (288MB) available from here: http://www.gigasize.com/get.php?d=och28h6opdf

    md5sum: c164ed3bbf959a39777c63625ac83c80 antiX-M7-rc1.iso

    antiX-beta2-r1 xdelta patch (77MB) available here: http://www.gigasize.com/get.php?d=qhghq8llopd

    12 September 2007

    antiX forum now available.

    The one at MepisLovers is still open.

    05 September 2007

    If you have recently downloaded antiX-M7-beta2 and you want to install some kde app, you will find you cannot due to dependency problems. This is because antiX temporarily got ahead with gcc and cpp from Debian testing.

    Easiest solution and an upgrade: Install aptitude from synaptic or

    apt-get install aptitude (it will also upgrade apt and synaptic)

    then

    aptitude update
    aptitude dist-upgrade
    and agree to the first solution offerred.

    You will then have a fully dist-upgraded antiX (to Mepis beta3) and you will be able to install kde apps.

    Alternatively, after installing aptitude,

    aptitude update
    aptitude install libavahi-qt3-1
    Or

    aptitude update
    aptitude install libssp0
    You will not need to use (I hope) aptitude again.

    Edit: It isn’t really a bug as such, but a feature to exclude kde 🙂

    04 September 2007 antiX-M7-beta2 also now available from the MEPIS mirrors.

    eg: download antiX-M7-beta2 here

    For a list of changes from antiX-Spartacus and antiX-M7.

    30 August 2007. antiX-M7-beta2 is available for testing.

    This version has a few more applications installed, has been dist-upgraded to include all the recent changes in Debian Etch and Mepis7-beta2. A few extra wallpapers have been added and some files removed. antiX-M7-beta2 is 299MB.

    At the moment get it from here: http://tomlinux.ca/testing using the following passwords.

    user=antiXtester password=fluxbox

    md5sum: f2b6466da0ac8ba17a4e282262074158

    For those with antiX-M7-beta1.iso, you can use xdelta to add the patch_beta1-beta2.delta http://tomlinux.ca/testing/patch_beta1-beta2.delta It is 82MB.

    Post comments, queries antiX forum on MepisLovers.

    22 August 2007. antiX-M7-beta1 is available for testing.

    This version is pretty rusty, has similar issues as Mepis7-beta1, but I’d like people to test it out and let me know what they think.

    It is not yet available on the Mepis mirrors, I need some feedback before it gets uploaded.

    antiX-M7-beta1 is about 280MB and is best installed to hard-disk, rather than used as a livecd (at the moment). Minimum 128MB RAM is recommended, though installed it should work well with 64MB RAM plus swap.

    md5sum=5e38db8c554aa5f3171dfa930f8ac3c2 antiX-M7-beta1.iso

    Edit: user=demo password=demo You cannot login as root! If you need to use root in a terminal, password=root

    To exit from the login screen user=reboot password=root To shut down user=halt password=root

    antiX-M7-beta1 is no longer available, antiX-M7-beta2 will be available for testing very soon.

    03 August 2007. Work is starting on antiX-Mepis7. This will be based on MEPIS7 ie Debian Etch. Being based on the Debian repos will give developers and users much more flexibility.

    09 July 2007. antiX goes final! With great pleasure, after a lot of hard work, I am pleased to announce that antiX final, code named Spartacus, is now available for download. (See link below and extra mirrors provided by MEPIS)

    antiX-M7 will not run (yet) on older processors such as Pentium II (it seems that PII is ok), AMD K5, and AMD K6 as it uses an up to date i686 kernel. antiX-Spartacus should.

    Hi Brian, how are you?

    I found at https://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=mepis, a little bit of MEPIS Linux, according to the site MEPIS Linux starts in 2003 and is discontinued 2013, I don’t know if the information in DistroWatch is reliable.

    So the antiX creator and developers were involved in the MEPIS Linux project?

    MEPIS Linux had a trash can on the desktop, according to the image on the previous link, this is interesting, having the trash can on the desktop.

    Too bad it was discontinued. After several years, it was over … Did they foresee this and started antiX? I don’t know, I would like to know.

    AntiX only appeared on DistroWatch in 2010, but what you explained to me above is that antiX was born in 2007, you can’t trust it …

    It really interests me to know a little more about the official history of antiX, before arriving here, I came to some conclusions, which unfortunately exist and there were many Linux distributions of the type “flash in the pan”, how can I explain this … of the type “waste of time”, in short, the creators simply gave up on the project and left several orphans around the world, users without their favorite Linux distribution. Instead of leaving it to the community to continue the work … I believe there is always one or more interested.

    Also according to DistroWatch, the list of discontinued Linux distributions is terribly huge, it is even a shame to see so much work thrown in the trash, https://distrowatch.com/search.php?ostype=All&category=All&origin=All&basedon=All&notbasedon=None&desktop=All&architecture = All & package = All & rolling = All & isosize = All & netinstall = All & defaultinit = All & status = Discontinued # simple, the list of projects in a “dormant” state is also quite large, https://distrowatch.com/search.php?ostype=All&category=All&origin = All & basedon = All & notbasedon = None & desktop = All & architecture = All & package = All & rolling = All & isosize = All & netinstall = All & language = All & defaultinit = All & status = Dormant # simple.

    Therefore, I believe that it is preferable to have a summary of the history on the antiX website itself, so we can say that the source of the information is secure and without distortions in the information.

    Eu encontrei no https://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=mepis, um pouco do MEPIS Linux, segundo o site o MEPIS Linux inicia em 2003 e é descontinuado 2013, eu não sei se as informações do DistroWatch são confiáveis.

    Então o criador e os desenvolvedores do antiX estavam envolvidos no projeto MEPIS Linux?

    O MEPIS Linux tinha lixeira na área de trabalho, segundo a imagem do link anterior, isso é interessante, ter a lixeira na área de trabalho.

    Pena que foi descontinuado. Após vários anos, tudo acabou … Será que previram isso e por isso iniciaram o antiX? Eu não sei, gostaria de saber.

    O antiX só aparece no DistroWatch em 2010, mas o que você me explicou acima é que o antiX nasceu em 2007, viu como não dá para confiar…

    Realmente me interessa conhecer um pouco mais da história oficial do antiX, antes de chegar por aqui, cheguei a algumas conclusões, que infelizmente existem e existiram muitas distribuições Linux do tipo “fogo de palha”, como posso te explicar isso … do tipo “perda de tempo”, em resumo, os criadores simplesmente desistiram do projeto e deixaram vários órfãos pelo mundo, usuários sem a sua distribuição Linux preferida. Ao invés de deixarem para a comunidade continuar o trabalho … Eu acredito que sempre tem um ou mais interessado.

    Ainda segundo o DistroWatch, a lista de distribuições Linux descontinuadas é terrivelmente gigante, dá até pena ver tanto trabalho jogado no lixo, https://distrowatch.com/search.php?ostype=All&category=All&origin=All&basedon=All&notbasedon=None&desktop=All&architecture=All&package=All&rolling=All&isosize=All&netinstall=All&language=All&defaultinit=All&status=Discontinued#simple, a lista de projetos em estado “dormente” também é bem grande, https://distrowatch.com/search.php?ostype=All&category=All&origin=All&basedon=All&notbasedon=None&desktop=All&architecture=All&package=All&rolling=All&isosize=All&netinstall=All&language=All&defaultinit=All&status=Dormant#simple.

    Por isso, eu acredito que seja preferível ter um resumo da história no próprio site do antiX, assim podemos dizer que a fonte da informação é segura e sem distorções na informação.

    I have been using antiX since it first came out and it DEFINITELY has been around for well over a decade.

    EARLY MEPIS came out in 2003; I remember that and I liked it. Simply MEPIS came out in 2004.

    I couldn’t find anything on antiX before 2007 but I believe it may have been before 2007.

    Since really old Web pages are difficult to find to confirm the details I think that anticapitalista is the best person to remind us of the most accurate history.

    As far as I can recall the very first version of MEPIS was similar in some ways to antiX today.

    After the initial proof of concept, MEPIS, rebranded to Simply MEPIS, was one of the best and lightest, fastest implementations of the KDE (K Desktop Environment).

    Once Simply MEPIS evolved into a desktop environment, I think that shortly afterwards anticapitalista contacted Warren Woodford and asked for permission to distribute antiX as a light alternative to MEPIS. Again anticapitalista is the definitive source for the details of the time and details.
