I THINK this is a bug, here are the details. I tried to install the package "compiz-plugins-main-0.8.8" but I got the following the error:
- Code: Select all
ERROR: unknown package type: compiz-plugins-main-0.8.8.tar.gz
ERROR: Can't open package file. (compiz-plugins-main-0.8.8.tar.gz)
ERROR: Package upgrade failed!
I installed the package manually from Slackbuilds and it worked flawlessly (i.e. using the Slackbuilds script and then installing via installpkg).
I've got the complete build log, if anyone wants me to post it.
EDIT: I forgot to include some additional information regarding my setup. Running Salix 13.37 32-bit with LXDE. I installed Salix last night using the FULL option; the only other packages that have been installed on the system are Emacs and the dependencies required for Emerald.
EDIT: compiz-plugins-extra-0.8.8 also fails in the same manner.
