keryx won't launch in UbuntuStudio 20.04. Access denied.

Asked by john sylvanis on 2021-05-14

Windows 10. I unzipped Keryx to a thumb drive. Then I plugged the drive into my UbuntuStudio 20.04 machine to create a project. I double clicked the icon of the Linux exec file after adding it the x privilege. Nothing happened. I then tried to launch it from the console with ./keryx. Nothing either. Then, I called up keryx's ACL and the rw priviledges were there but not the x. I repeated the +x command, no change in the ACL. All operations were denied. Switched to root. No change, same denials.

I then searched the WEB but got only 10+ years forum comments about issues, none tied in with privileges though and they'd have been obsolete anyway. So, no dice. In Windows I got it working just by double clicking the .exe file. But I don't need it for Windows. Why is Windows always smooth (I used to be an administrator), but in Linux I am always hitting a very high wall with just about everything? "You need this or that dependent. I get it. Then you need this or that dependent of the dependent, etc., etc. But no, you also need python..." This is why I abandoned Linux after trying it time and time again. Now I am at it again, and experiencing the same thing. Linux is 30 year old. I was expecting that the dependency problems would have been resolved.

Please enlighten me, I am sincerely trying.

Yours, John.

Try copying the keryx executable to your hard disk, set the protections and start it from there.

Problem is, I cannot add executability (+x) to keryx which SHOULD be
executable by default when +x is added. No matter what I do, x doesn't get
into the permissions string. The exact message is "Permission denied". I
simply don't get it. Updated to 21.04 via .iso which would not work off a
DVD anymore (for me, that is), but it does off a thumb drive. Anyway, I
still have a problem with the keryx exec file in Linux. It DOES work in
Windows 10.

Thanks for your help, John.

What is the full output that you receive for the commands

Do a "cd" command to the directory with the keryx file

ls -l keryx
chmod a+x keryx
ls -l keryx
sudo chmod a+x keryx
ls -l keryx

Sorry for being so late Manfred. Thank you for your suggestions. Actually,
I extracted the Keryx package to Ubuntu Studio 21.04's desktop into a
directory called Keryx.
This is what happens:

- right clicked the Linux executable to see properties: the Executable
square is checked.
- went to the permissions tab to verify whether all types have permissions
checked
- all types (user [John], group [John], etc. are checked for rx, the
administrator (me) has rwx permissions.
- double clicked the tooth-wheeled Linux executable. A message box comes up
"What would you wish to do with this file?" There are 2 buttons: EXECUTE
and CANCEL. Naturally, I pressed
EXECUTE. The message box disappears, but nothing ever after happens, that
is, there's no interface (like in Windows) popping up.
- went into Logs: "Widgets interface loaded". That's it.

The Keryx version I am using is 0.92.5 because of many complaints about
v1.0 and v1.1. I've tried v1.0 in Windows without success.

Any opinion?

Thank you VERY much for your help, yours, John.

Maybe the following provides additional information about the reason that keryx doesn't show the interface window:

Open a terminal window (e.g. by simultaneously pressing ctrl-alt-t)
change directory to the directory where keryx resides
cd Desktop/Keryx # or whatever the directory name might be
and then start the program
./keryx
Do you see any error messages in the terminal window?

Remark: The keryx project seems pretty dead. On Launchpad I cannot see any traces of activity after the year 2018.

Thanks, I'll try your solution.

1. Yes, the project is dead. The author said (in 2017) that he turned away
from maintaining it because it bored him and he was onto other things.
2. Could it be that I may need some dependent programs for the interface to
pop up?
3. Still, I am dumbfounded about the program's flawless performance in
Windows 7, 10.

2018 is not so far back from the present day. Ubuntu 18.04 was already
here, functionally pretty close to the versions we have now. Mystery.

Thanks again, yours, John.

If there is something missing, then starting keryx from the command line might help identifying this.
Ist there any output when you do that?

Hello, Manfred.

Here is the output when, upon your suggestion, I executed keryx from the
console. Do I need python? As I now remember, on his site, the author
mentioned that there were 2 dependencies needed to run the program.
Unfortunately I didn't make a note of them and now I can't possibly reach
his Keryx site. But that may have been necessary for earlier versions, who
knows... I am running Ubuntu on an IBM PC clone.

From which source did you download keryx?

For Ubuntu there should also be a version involving python (with a file name keryx.py).
Maybe you should re-start from scratch by downloading the version dedicated for Ubuntu.

Yeah, I'll try this. On the other hand, I installed 21.04 onto an HP
laptop. Good luck, it needs proprietary WI-FI drivers. I am working on
that, b/c it obviously cannot access the Internet...
Linux, Linux, oh...

Yours, John.

Manfred,

I don't want to bother you again, but I need one more time. I found the
maintenance site for Keryx. It's LAUNCHPAD.net. Unfortunately, they have
keryx and its dependencies in different files, to be downloaded separately.
I did, but have absolutely no clue as to where to place them to function
seamlessly together.

Please advise, if possible.

Many thanks, John.

And which file did you download?

How do you expect that we can help if you do not tell us what you are doing?

Everything they have, but I'll get back to you with the file names. I tried
your suggestion as to the python file, but it didn't work, since the
dependencies were not there. The python file is a text file and opens as
such in ubuntu's text editor. Anyway, I'll give you the files' list.

Thanks again, John.

Manfred,

The Keryx page's address is: https://launchpad.net/keryx

There, to the right there is a vertical array of green buttons that'll
download the wanted versions AND the dependencies, but separately. There
simply are too many files to name. The number of dependencies, when looked
up inside the compressed file, is 4 (pink button). The Keryx executable is
just one 62 MB file. So, these 4 files must be placed in some directories
(maybe separate from the exec file) but I don't know where. I tried /etc,
but no dice. I tried /dev, nothing. I tried other directories without
results, and I also tried to put the exec file together with the
dependencies, without result either.

If I knew of another method to download packages to my Ubuntu laptop
without instant installation and then transfer them to my desktop, I
wouldn't bother you with my silly questions, but I have no choice
whatsoever.

Sorry, yours, John.

Sorry, a misunderstanding.
I wanted to know whether you downloaded
Keryx 0.92.5.tar.gz
or
Keryx_Ubuntu_x86.zip

Revision history for this message
john sylvanis (sylva1) said :
#18

I downloaded both, the .deb version too. None worked in Linux because the
dependencies were not downloaded. I downloaded them separately, but they
were not installable on their own.

However, here's another thing: My 18.04 Ubuntu Unleashed book doesn't
mention an apparently new function, apt-get download <package>, probably
not present in that version but present in 21.04. It's not perfect, but it
brings down packages that can be installed to another computer when the
main program is installed AFTER download. Not perfect, for when I installed
paprefs to the desktop, installation complained about the lack of another
package, a module, which I found and downloaded and installed on top of
paprefs. When it unzipped (gz), it had a file containing all of the
programs of the module and the path they've been installed to. Upon
verification, everything was at its place (in the respective directories).
But what if I couldn't find the module? Then even installed, paprefs
wouldn't have functioned. I don't yet know whether it'll function, since I
still have to configure jack and pulseaudio. I have 2 cards in the
computer, Xonar DX 7.1, hoping that paprefs will make it possible to have
them grouped into a virtual card so I can write for the orchestra to 16
physical outputs.

Keryx is important because it will download ALL of the necessary
components.

Thank you for your time, you're most helpful indeed. yours, John.

If you have Keryx_Ubuntu_x86.zip downloaded, unzip it (if not already done), change directory into the directory Keryx_Ubuntu_x86/source/ and issue the command

python keryx.py

What happens?

john sylvanis (sylva1) said :

Manfred, did you try keryx yourself and does it work for you, because if
it does, it's me who is completely uncouth and will have to brush up on my
Linux knowledge? It turns out that it won't even work in Windows. Sorry for
being so optimistic. Yes, the interface shows up, but I cannot get through
to the next step, that is, to set up a project. Keryx always comes up with
a little window saying "Please set up a project in your offline computer"
or something like this and it sends me back to the interface. It
never lets me set up a project. I am on our library's computer (live in a
low income building) when writing this.

As I understand, Keryx is supposed to download linux packages even through
windows. My laptop has dual boot to Win7 and 21.04. The laptop is 9 years
old, but it's still a mean machine, so what's happening is not due to
slowness, etc. Win7 and Linux are lightning fast because of the 3rd
generation Intel processor and bus structure. It's a business grade machine
that I bought on ebay in 2015 for $325 (originally it cost about $2200 when
it came out in 2012). Anyway, my main issue now is: as I said before,
there's a package of dependencies on Launchpad.net that should go with
keryx with all versions. However, I don't know where the components of this
dependencies package go or may have to be manually placed, and, when I
unzip the main program (keryx) a window pops up demanding completely
different dependencies. I am here talking about being in Ubuntu, not
Windows, which never has any dependencies. Why in Linux the dependency
issues have never been resolved, that is, why they won't come packaged with
the main program? Remember, although I am very technical, in this case I am
a user and I'd be using 21.04 for orchestral music writing. The main
technical purpose for me is to use paprefs to make 2 sound cards into a
virtual card, feeding 16 discrete channels into an amplifier. If I don't
tackle the problem of downloading without installation, I'll have to always
haul my 50 lb computer (it's in a big steel case for good ventilation,
otherwise it's just an ordinary machine with two 8 channel sound cards). I
live on the 13th floor. It doesn't have wi-fi, so I'll need it connected
through the wired network but am not even sure it'll connect without NFS or
something similar.

Anyway, sorry for this litany, yours, John, and a big THANK YOU for your
time and patience. Keryx.py won't work either. I think it's a dependencies'
issue.

I downloaded and unzipped keryx_ubuntu_x86.zip on the library computer.
Unzipped, got into Win32 directory and clicked the executable. It came up
with the interface, with Debian and supported
OS, and, or course, I get an error message saying "Please create a project
in the plugin's supported OS". But when I get into Ubuntu and change
directory into Keryx_Ubuntu_x86/source/ and execute keryx.py, nothing
happens. Strange.

Sorry, I am lost. I do not understand which dependencies of keryx on launchpad.net you are talking about.
And why are you suddenly talking about Ubuntu 21.04 and no more 20.04?

Revision history for this message
john sylvanis (sylva1) said :

I went on to 21.04 hoping that some of the problems I encountered in 20.04
have been solved. As you read the green buttons to the right of the page in
Launchpad, you'll see dependencies. I am lost too, because no one of the
administrators is directing the user to what to do. Are dependencies
needed, or not?

Anyway, in the Word attachment you'll see the results of your suggestion
that I change the unzipped Keryx_Ubuntu_x86 to Keryx_Ubuntu_x86/source/ and
then run keryx.py. The x86 doesn't ask for any attachments.

Thanks, John.

1. If you are talking about the green buttons on the right side of https://launchpad.net/keryx these are not dependencies, but different versions of the keryx software (0.92.5, 0.92.4, etc and different packaging). You need to download only one of these, and if that software need additional software because of dependencies, then the dependencies have to be downloaded from elsewhere and not from the green buttons.

2. Launchpad answers deletes all attachments. I do not see a word file anywhere.

Manfred, I know that MOST are versions, but one of them says attachments.
Now, there's one version that at unzip time wants me to download 4
attachments (with pink buttons). I don't which version that was, so I'll
take to all of the downloads to find out.

Thanks, John.

You are right, going through the list of files that you can download on https://launchpad.net/keryx I see some files that have "dependencies" in their file name, but they are more than ten years old and I assume that they are obsolete. You will most probably need higher versions of these packages (to be downloaded from elsewhere).

I suggest that we re-start from the beginning and proceed step by step.

Please answer the following questions:

1. What is the target?
I understand that you have one Ubuntu system (which release?) without internet connection, and you want to install certain software on it (which one?)

2. Which system do you want to use for downloading?
You write about a windows system and a laptop with internet connection that you want to use. Which Operating system (including release number ) is it?

john sylvanis (sylva1) said :

OK, here it is:

1. I have 2 multiboot computers. First is a laptop with Ubuntu 21.04 and
Win7 v6.1.7601, service pack 1, #7601. Second, a desktop, same arrangement,
dual boot, Ubuntu 21.04 and Win7 same version as above.

2. I need to download software packages with their dependencies onto the
laptop, WITHOUT installing it. The software downloaded would be transferred
via thumbnail drive to the desktop where it would be installed into Ubuntu.
I'd transfer the software via a network but to install and configure
networks in Linux (excuse me for the following) is a nightmare. It's like
back to DOS and Novell, though Novell wasn't all that bad.

3. For the purpose, I tried every version of Keryx that I could come across
on both OSs because the author said it was working on both OSs. May have in
the past, but today seems it's wishful thinking. I did everything to my
power to make it work, but no dice. This is when I wrote to the forum and
you answered and been so patient and understanding. I mention again, that
the LAPTOP is used for downloading WITHOUT installation and the desktop for
installation.

4. Yeah, the dependencies may be obsolete, but where are the more current
ones when the obsolete ones are on the maintainers' web page? And, for that
matter, why don't authors package dependencies with their main program? I
looked for dependencies on a repository and they were close to 60 (if not
more) but I have no idea where that web page was; I looked for them on so
many pages that my limited memory fails me.

So, this is it. I hope I answered your questions.

Please let me know if anything I wrote was inept or unclear.

Thank you again, yours, John.

Ok, the setup is clear to me. Having the same Ubuntu release on both system should make everything easier.

Let's forget the desktop for a moment and focus on getting keryx up and running on the laptop. If we then duplicate the same on the desktop, it should work there as well.

Download https://launchpad.net/keryx/stable/0.92/+download/Keryx%200.92.5.tar.gz to your laptop and unpack the zip archive to a directory below your home directory.
Then change directory into that directory and execute the command

./keryx

What happens?
If there are error messages, please provide the full text.

Ok, here's the plain text of ./keryx executable from the .tar.gz archive.
In /home I used mkdir to make the 'source' subdirectory. Then I tar-ed the
archive file into 'source'. This is what I got:

john@HP-8470:/home$ ls
john
john@HP-8470:/home$ cd source
bash: cd: source: No such file or directory
john@HP-8470:/home$ cd john
john@HP-8470:~$ cd Keryx
john@HP-8470:~/Keryx$ ./keryx

Hope this is what you need. Please let me know. Yours, John.

PS: do you think Keryx is still usable? It was not updated since 2017, but
you know that, so I am preaching to the choir.

Here it is once more, since I think I sent this to myself.

Ok, here's the plain text of ./keryx executable from the .tar.gz archive.
In /home I used mkdir to make the 'source' subdirectory. Then I tar-ed the
archive file into 'source'. This is what I got:

john@HP-8470:/home$ ls
john
john@HP-8470:/home$ cd source
bash: cd: source: No such file or directory
john@HP-8470:/home$ cd john
john@HP-8470:~$ cd Keryx
john@HP-8470:~/Keryx$ ./keryx
Could not locate a translation file for your language.
