Package unavailable on 18.04

Asked by Thomas Pound


I recently updated my system to 18.04 and wanted to install livewallpaper again, since I saw that there had been an update for the new LTS as well.

Unfortunately, after successfully adding the daily-PPA and updating my sources, my system (Ubuntu MATE 18.04) is still unable to find the livewallpaper package to install. There is also no autocomplete available when entering "sudo apt install livewall", previously it would offer livewallpaper, -indicator, -config and all other options.

Could I be missing something or is there a problem with 18.04?

Also, my sincere thanks to everyone involved in this project, I really enjoy the look of these wallpapers (especially the circle and galaxy ones) and I'd love to continue using them.

The build for ubuntu 18.04 failed and therefore there were no packages for ubuntu 18.04. I fixed the build now, so if you do an update and try to install livewallpaper again, it should work.
