Ubuntu ppa repository for testing

Postby shane2peru » Mon Nov 08, 2010 3:20 pm

Ok, I was able to get a ppa up. I need a few brave souls to test this out for me. The ppa will only work for Lucid and Maverick installs of Ubuntu. You can add the ppa by following these instructions.

NOTE: Please backup any of your Bible Analyzer materials you have created or bought before starting this. You in theory shouldn't lose anything, but it is always better to be safe than sorry.

Instructions for GUI (point and click method.)

1. Open Applications -> Ubuntu Software Center and go to Edit -> Software sources. Now click on the 'Other Software' tab, and click on add. In the window that pops up paste this:
For Lucid:
Code: Select all
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/shane2peru/bibleanalyzer-stable/ubuntu lucid main

For Maverick:
Code: Select all
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/shane2peru/bibleanalyzer-stable/ubuntu maverick main

And click add.
Right click this link: http://keyserver.ubuntu.com:11371/pks/l ... 2E149F3153 and select 'Save as' and save it as ba.key on your Desktop.
Now click on the 'Authentication' tab and click on the "Import Key File... Go to your desktop and select the ba.key you downloaded above, and click OK. You may now close The software sources window. It should reload if it asks, select yes.
2. In the search window of Ubuntu Software Center search for: Bible Analyzer, and select install!
3. You can delete the ba.key file on your desktop, it is not longer needed.

These are the Terminal method: (Simpler and faster).

1. Open a terminal Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal and copy or paste this:
Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:shane2peru/bibleanalyzer-stable


2. In the terminal once again type or paste this:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update


3. Once again in the terminal
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install bibleanalyzer

Or you can open Synaptic or Ubuntu Software Center and search for bibleanalyzer and install it that way.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Please report back here on any problems, issues that come up. I have confirmed this to work with Ubuntu Maverick 64bit. It should work fine with 32bit as well, but I'm not able to test that. Thank you for your help with this.

What is ppa? I have BA installed on a laptop with Ubuntu 10.04. But I don't know if I should want ppa or to test it.

Interesting web site you have. Where do you keep the chart on the 1,000 examples on the Reina Valera? Actually, I've never heard of the Reina Valera Gomez.

Well a ppa is a Personal Package Archives. What that means is that instead of installing a package by downloading the deb and installing it that way, you would add the ppa to your package manager, and you would be able to install the package (Bible Analyzer in our case) through the normal way packages are installed in Ubuntu. Synaptic or Ubuntu Software Center are the main applications for that.

As for my chart on the Reina Valera Bibles, It is basically on my computer. It was made and looked over, but never produced to the quality the two charts I have on my web page were produced. There were a lot of verses that were the same across the board, so they were not of great relevance of the study. The two charts on my web page, are probably the 'worse case' scenarios.

www.ReinaValeraGomez.com has many articles, and interesting things to look at.

Shane,

I'm not certain what you mean by "brave," as it looks rather straight forward and without risk.

According to your initial post, I think I should uninstall BA and then put in the three terminal commands as you have indicated and then report on what happens. I don't think I'll hurt anything on my OSs or boot loader.

I take Fridays and Saturdays off, and we sure are busy just now. However, if it all seems innocent, I could give it a try Monday or Tuesday.

Your chart sounds interesting. I'll say a prayer about it tomorrow.

Amazing what one finds out about on the internet. God is doing his greatest work through Christians on the internet and it is the path to truth and revival in ways we humans really do not comprehend. I'm going to check out this Gomez version eventually, and I appreciate being advised of it.

Paul,

Yes, perhaps brave was an overstatement. If you were able to get Bible Analyzer installed and working before, then really this is not going to be difficult. If something fails, it would be easy to just install BA again, as you had before. Of course the ppa version would probably need to be removed, but all should be straight forward. Please let me know how it all goes for you. Thanks!

Shane,

I un-installed BA.

I typed in the first terminal command as indicated in this topic thread.

Here is the response I got.


Error: can't find signing_key_fingerprint at https://launchpad.net/api/1.0/~shane2pe ... leanalyzer

So, what do you want me to do next?

Paul,

What version of Ubuntu are you using? You should be able to go to System -> About Ubuntu and it will tell you what version you are using, 10.10 Maverick Meerkat or 10.04 Lucid Lynx. If it isn't one of those two, the ppa isn't going to work for your version. Please let me know what version you are using. Thanks for trying!

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 on a thinkpad t40, 2gb ram. I stick with the LTSs. Maybe, you designed everything on 10.10. At any rate, let me know if and when I should try again. :)

Ahh my bad. Try it again. I didn't have the ppa correct. I fixed the first post so now it reads correctly. It should have had -stable on the end, as it reads now. That should work without a flaw.

Shane,
Ok, it all installed. I'll paste all the info from the terminal on the installation below for your review, but changing the computer name to XXX.
Note the part about some index files failed to download, so they were ignored or old ones used. I don't know if that is significant.
Note the part about some packages installed that are no longer required, (just before the BA installation). Then it says to use "apt-get remove" to remove them. So do I just type that in, or do I type that in and paste in the name of the files, or do I just not care if they are in there???

Is it my imagination, or is the BA program now operating faster and more efficiently? I had trouble installing modules in my BA before. Tim set up two modules for installation on Linux, and they worked, but then none of the others did. So do you think they will work now?

I had to type the initial command in three times to get it to work. I'm sure I was typing something wrong, but it just indicates that for the average computer user, this method may not seem that easy. My only computer training is a two hour course at the library on html. Everything else I just learned here and there. I think the way that terminal zooms around after typing in the commands might freak some people. A lot of Linux users are quite knowledgeable and comfortable with the terminal, but with Ubuntu being so easy now, many Ubuntu users do not touch the terminal. Just my thoughts -- I actually do not know your objectives for this.

So when I go with Ubuntu 11.04, do you think this is how I should install BA. I always do a fresh install, not an upgrade.
