    The following packages are now available from the bluestar repository:

    linguassist-1.3-1 (update)

    Ok - I think this solution is the right one. I added logic to check version dependencies against the database of installed packages. This fixes the issue with libreoffice's stupid idea of releasing 2 "stable" versions, neither of which has a "flat", or default, package name. For example, if libreoffice-fresh isn't installed, it won;t pass the dependency check and will be tagged as  uninstallable.

    The following packages are now available from the bluestar repository:

    linguassist-1.2-11 (update)

    I updated the language-pack registry because of LibreOffice's bizarre new naming convention. There are now 2 "stable" versions, fresh and still. If you were already running the original libreoffice package, apper will have updated you to the "still" packages. If you do a new install of libreoffice, you'll get the "fresh" version of LibreOffice. I simply added both still and fresh packages to the registry, but I think this is going to end up being confusing since most users won't necessarily know which version they have installed.

    I'll give more thought to a longer term solution, but I really don't want to add a libreoffice exception to the installer logic. For now, I noticed that if you try to install the wrong language pack, LinguAssist will behave as if it has installed the package, although the package won't actually have been downloaded or installed. Make sure LinguAssist actually downloads the libreoffice language pack you chose for installation.

    I'll keep working on a more user-friendly solution.

    Cheers

    The following packages are now available from the bluestar repository:

    update: dkusage-0.3.3-1

    new: gimp-plugin-resynthesizer-git-2.0-1
    new: paccache-0.1.6-1

    The dkusage update is a minor one. Added calls to close/delete the inode db when -h option is used; removed unneeded constant.

    The paccache command is incredibly useful for cleaning up your pacman cache (/var/cache/pacman/pkg). For example:

    Code: [Select]
    paccache -r
    leaves the 3 latest copies of any/all package files and removes the rest. There are options to tune how many copies you want to keep, whether or not you want to tie deletion to architecture or installation status, etc. Very useful. Use the --help option to get a full syntax listing.
