Running Easy Installer on Linux

Oh, new finding: I get the same “Internal Error” on my opensuse PC. And it seems I simply overlooked it yesterday, but the easy-installer snap package contains the wrong “libharfbuzz.so.0.10702.0”.

Edit: I’ve created an issue in Gitlab and I think v0.12.0-beta is really broken on linux

A workaround would be to use the older v0.11.2-beta version. You can switch in a terminal via

snap revert easy-installer --revision 14

Depending on your distro you might need to prefix that with sudo

I’m trying to revert, but can’t:

~$ sudo snap revert easy-installer --revision 14
error: cannot revert "easy-installer": cannot find revision 14 for snap "easy-installer"

I initially installed it as explained here, with command snap install easy-installer --channel=latest/beta.

Hi, I’m having same issue Ingo_FP_Angel and a few others.

Using Ubuntu 16.04.7.

I install using easy-installer:
sudo snap install easy-installer --channel=latest/beta

Run snap from command line and get “Internal Error”:
snap run easy-installer

I follow instructions to revert to Revision 14:
snap revert easy-installer --revision 14

But get error:

error: cannot revert “easy-installer”: cannot find revision 14 for snap “easy-installer”

Is there a way to specify v0.11.2-beta in the install command?

Thanks :slight_smile:

I don’t usually use snap but I guess any snap documentation/tutorial will contain that info.

The revert happened to work for me because I had installed v0.11.2-beta before and it was still sitting on my hard drive.

I had version 0.12 beta installed:

I removed it with sudo snap remove easy-installer.
Then I installed it again with :

~$ sudo snap install easy-installer --channel=latest/beta
easy-installer (beta) v0.11.2-beta from ECORP SAS (ecorpsas) installed

and now I have:

and it starts! Not sure why the 12.0 beta was installed as I used the same command earlier. Was the channel updated to go back to 11.2 ?

Anyway, I can try to use it now :slight_smile:

Seems so. I assume it’s Vicent who did it as he commented in Gitlab https://gitlab.e.foundation/e/backlog/-/issues/2576#note_80907

I can confirm: install command brings the v0.11.2-beta up and running. :+1:

Can confirm also, this installed v0.11.2-beta and solved the INTERNAL ERROR issue on Ubuntu 16 LTR. easy-installer now opens :slight_smile:

When started from cmd line snap run easy-installer it did give two error messages, but seemed to load ok.

A solution to the “Unknown error” problem in version v.0.12.0 (which had been withdrawn because of it) was found yesterday and it seems a corrected version v.0.12.1 is up now :slight_smile:

P.S.: I think it’s also the first version to contain the German translations :slight_smile:

Thank you @Nytt, I added your @name to the main list on that page :smile:

However, there is a new problem.
No MMS without mobile data :frowning:

An internet search tries to tell me that this is normal. Is it not?

it is not normal ! with android 10 : is ok.

Sending MMS basically is no longer related to the topic about running the easy installer on linux :wink:

Maybe it helps to check some of the existing topics about MMS (there are like five times more than that)
