Not packaged in Focal

Asked by Dan Cooper on 2020-03-26

Hello,
due to a question in another forum I checked if amule is included in Ubuntu 20.04 Focal Fossa, but it is missing in the package list on packages.ubuntu.com.
If it just not yet packaged or won't it be packaged for 20.04?

Kind regards
Dan Cooper

Deleted in focal-release (Reason: depends on wxwidget-gtk2 which was removed from Debian)

I suggest you find an alternative client

So that means there is no possibility to fix that?

No. One of its deps has been removed upstream so Ubuntu followed. If you can re-engineer the code to not use that dep then you can package it and use it in Ubuntu

But at least amule-daemon package (so amuled and amuleweb) could be built, without wx-gtk2...

Why it hadn't been?

@Dan @Davide. You can download the deb packages needed to implement the daemon only (amule-common_2.3.2-6, amule-daemon_2.3.2-6, amule-utils_2.3.2-6) from the Eoan version. Here the link https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/eoan/+package/amule
Follow the dependencies and install the packages directly from the downloaded deb files.

In my case amule-daemon is working without any issue.

Just in case you need a modern amule web interface instead of the default one: https://github.com/MatteoRagni/AmuleWebUI-Reloaded

Hope it can help, ciao

@madaello : works perfectly, just installed on focal. Nice web UI!

Can you help with this problem?
