Most Common Bugs

December 21st, 2006 by Nicholas Reville

Janet has been getting our bug tracker into shape and she’s put together a list of the most common bugs that people are reporting in Democracy Player 0.9.2. Most of these are somewhat difficult to track down, which is why they haven’t been fixed already. We’ll be tackling on a bunch of them for the next release.

Democracy Player most common bugs.

If you are seeing any of these problems, please feel free to add a comment to the but ticket. Developers– feel free to throw out ideas about how to reproduce or approach some of the more intractable bugs.

    I just downloaded and tried to open and install ‘democracyplayer_0.9.2.1-1ubuntupcf_i386.deb’ for my Ubuntu (which is completely actualized), and I got the next:

    Error: Conflicts with the installed package ‘j2re1.4′

    Can you solve that? I am not going to uninstall the Java client…

    I also tried the version 0.8.4.1-1 which comes in Synaptic, even if it made use of 10Mbs for installing the Mozilla-Browser. It didn’t work either. That is what I got (afterwards I deleted it):

    If you are running Edgy, I suggest upgrading your java version to JRE v5.0 Update 10 per: http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu:Edgy#How_to_install_JRE_v5.0_Update_10

    And in that same guide, this is the procedure I followed to get a working version: http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu:Edgy#How_to_install_Internet_TV_.28DemocracyTV_beta.29

    At this time, if you have upgraded to Feisty, with the latest updates to Python ver 2.5, Democracy is broken until the dependencies are fixed.
