Hi, first of all I like Inkdrop very much. I have searched for years for a good markdown based note taking app which could use subfolders so I can structure my own notes.
I use Inkdrop on iOS, Android, Windows, Mac and Linux. In Ubuntu or Linux Mint installing of inkdrop is no problem, but when I use Debian based distro’s like Kali Linux or Parrot OS I can’t install Inkdrop…
When installing Inkdrop with:
sudo dpkg -i inkdrop_3.22.2_amd64.deb
I get these messages:
Preparing to unpack inkdrop_3.22.2_amd64.deb ... Unpacking inkdrop (3.22.2-1) ... dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of inkdrop: inkdrop depends on libgconf2-4; however: Package libgconf2-4 is not installed. dpkg: error processing package inkdrop (--install): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured Processing triggers for bamfdaemon (0.5.3-3) ... Rebuilding /usr/share/applications/bamf-2.index... Processing triggers for desktop-file-utils (0.23-3) ... Processing triggers for mime-support (3.61) ... Errors were encountered while processing: inkdrop
It looks like the problem here is that
libgconf2-4 is not installed, So I tried this:
sudo apt install libgconf2-4
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these. The following packages have unmet dependencies: libgconf2-4 : Depends: libgconf-2-4 (= 3.2.6-4.1) but 3.2.6-5 is to be installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
So I tried the offered solution in this message:
udo apt --fix-broken install
This leads to this message:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Correcting dependencies... Done The following packages will be REMOVED: inkdrop 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 to remove and 0 not upgraded. 1 not fully installed or removed. After this operation, 268 MB disk space will be freed. Do you want to continue? [Y/n]
Y leads to uninstalling Inkdrop
n leads to problems every time you try
sudo apt upgrade because of the Inkdrop install being broken
Do you know a solution for this?
(I also read you are working on a snap package. Can we expect this soon, because maybe this would be a solution for this problem)
