How to Install the Linux version?

Post by imcreative66 » Wed Mar 07, 2012 9:13 pm

The download does not contain a ".deb" for ubuntu, or a ".rpm" for fedora so please explain how to install the program under these linux distrobutions. I must be blind because I cannot find any directions for installing anywhere on the website, in the download file or on the web. Please help! Thank you :cry:

There is no installer for the Linux version.
Just extract all to a folder of your choice.

ok, unzipped downloaded qnewb file from the website (in ubuntu) and when I double click on the qnewb execution file absolutly nothing happens. If I right click on the qnewb execution file and select open with, there are no known applications to open it with. This is why I was questioning the missing installation file in my first post. Something is not registering correctly. Please advise

I have used wysiwyg web builder for years and was hoping I could have a solution for my linux desktop also but I'm losing hope :(

1) Unzip all files to a folder of your choice.
2) Double click qnewb (executable)

If that doesn't work then something may be wrong with your system.
If you open a terminal session and then run the application on the command line then you may see the cause of the error.

Ok, fresh installs of ubuntu, mint, and fedora and still will not run. No errors in terminal besides that it doesn't recognize what the file should be opened with. One linux version, maybe... but all of these? all other apps work fine? If thereis a distro of linux this does work without a doubt please let me know. What linux was it tested on when built? I find it hard to believe I'm the only one who is having issues with this? Please help

The software was tested on Unbuntu (and Kubuntu), Fedora and OpenSusu.
We did not have any reports of the software not working on Linux yet. And we had many feedback from Linux user during the beta phase.

Did you download the software (version 1.0.3) from here?

Ok, yes downloaded from official source. Tried again in a fresh install of debian and opensuse and no luck.

I will forever be a loyal devoted Wysiwyg web builder user and refer to everyone.... but I give up on Quick and easy until the linux issue is solved or explained.

Thanks for trying :cry:

Is it possible that you do not have all web safe fonts installed? These are required for web editing.

would not having the "web safe" fonts installed cause the application to not launch whatsoever? I've never encounter such an event with other software on linux. Is there some additional package required? Was the application ported using WINE, and that possible cause an issue?

I have installed and tested on 5 different linux distrobutions, fresh installs on all of them, and all react the same way. Either no response upon execution of the application or a "no known association for this application" type of response. Either by double clicking on the executable or launching in a terminal.

All other applications operate without issue

I would love to resolve this and think a resolution in the forum would be very helpful for other linux users that might encounter the same type of issue. Having MAC, PC and linux machines all running in my office for many years without issues makes it hard to believe that I am the only one who would run into this issue.

Thanks again for at least following up...

Yes! The software requires at least 'Arial' on the system.
I've never encounter such an event with other software on linux.
Web Building software will always require these (web safe) fonts. There are the basis of all web sites. Without these fonts you will not be able to build websites that look the same on all systems.
See 'web safe fonts' in the manual for more details.
Was the application ported using WINE
No, it's a C++ application. Natively compiled on Linux.

I can not either install the linux version.
Running Linux Deepin (Ubuntu based)...

I have the true type fonts installed.. this is what I get

I received these messages in a pop up window, after that the program goes to and end.
of course never open...

An assertion failed

./src/gtk/bitmap.cpp(560): assert "IsOk()" failed in GetWidth(): invalid bitmap

An assertion failed

./src/gtk/bitmap.cpp(553): assert "IsOk()" failed in GetHeight(): invalid bitmap

An assertion failed

./src/gtk/bitmap.cpp(789): assert "IsOk()" failed in HasPixbuf(): invalid bitmap

An assertion failed

./src/gtk/bitmap.cpp(731): assert "IsOk()" failed in GetPixmap(): invalid bitmap


---- in terminal there are more messages, the next paragraph is at the end -----

The program 'qnewb' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
(Details: serial 2299 error_code 11 request_code 53 minor_code 0)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

-----

What can I do to make it run?

thanks

I'm sorry I'm not familiar with 'Linux Deepin'.

However when/how do you get this error message? Because I doubt that this is related to fonts problem.

New installation of Linux Mint, MS Core Fonts Installed, still will not launch. THis is the typical error I receive in all my linux installations, application to open with unknown (see screen capture).

Maybe your system in 64 bits?
Where can I download this 'Linux Mint'? Can it be installed in a virtual PC session?
