Installing "lcdproc" in FileServer Package


yesterday i started the first installation of the file server package and i have to say that this package is very nice. After installing and making the first tests, i wanted to install a new module:

the "lcdproc" addon to show system informations on a lcd display

I tried to use the APT manager, but while installing the module i get an error, that some dependencies are not installed.

Is here anyone, who have installed this package without problems and could give me some informations?




thats the failure message; background-attachment: initial; background-origin: initial; background-clip: initial; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); background-position: 100% 0%; background-repeat: no-repeat repeat; " summary="">

Looks like you need to enable the Universe repo

I'm not familiar with that module, but a quick look on Ubuntu Package Search (scroll down to 'search package directories' > select 'lucid' from the distro drop down and click search) shows that the dependancy the install is complaining about should be available via the universe repository (see here - note '[universe]' after the title of the package).

So to enable that repo using the commandline (probably possible via Webmin but I don't know how OTTOMH):

nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/source.list

And remove the '#' from the start of the lines that end in 'universe'; save and exit (<Ctrl><X>). Then update your package lists (apt-get update) and try again.

i will try it and quickly

i will try it and quickly wrote my feedback here. thanks a lot
