The installation script for Debian doesn’t install all of the components that are needed. Specifically, I had to install these manually:
- automake (for aclocal)
(A couple of those may have been installed by the script. However, just to be sure, I installed all of the dependencies listed in the “git clone install” documentation manually.)
However, there are two dependencies that I had trouble with:
- A couple of qt5 and libkf5 components.
I also got this error:
error: cannot open .git/FETCH_HEAD: Permission denied
I tried building and installing
extra-cmake-modules from source (it’s not available in the Debian Jessie repositories), but the script still returned the error:
Could not find a package configuration file provided by "ECM"
After spending a day just trying to get the dependencies installed, I gave up. Has anyone gotten Mycroft installed successfully on Debian Jessie?
extra-cmake-modules is available in debian testing (stretch) and unstable (sid):
no package in jessie should have this one in its dependency list. Do you known which package is requesting this one?
While running install_plasmoid_kde.sh, I get two errors. The first is more of a warning. After installing cryptography (pyOpenSSL==16.0.0), this appears after the mimic download:
You are not currently on a branch.
Please specify which branch you want to merch with.
See git-pull(1) for details.
The next messages are errors:
E: Unable to locate packate qml-module-qtquick-controls2
E: Unable to locate package libkf5plasma-dev
Then, after configuring the C++ compiler,
CMake Error at (CMakeLists.txt: 10 (find_package):
Could not find a package configuration file provided by "ECM" with any of
the following names:
Add the installation prefix of "ECM" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set "ECM_DIR"
to a directory containing one of the above files. If "ECM" provides a
separate development package or SDK, be sure it has been installed.
-- Configuring incomplete!, errors occurred!
None of the two missing packages in the first two errors nor the
extra-cmake-modules (“ECM”) package exist in Debian Jessies repositories. (They also don’t exist in Ubuntu 16 repositories, and I get the same errors in Ubuntu, but I’m addressing that in a different post.)
