Topic: Is the non-live version of 1.1.0 available for download?
Hello, I am trying out Linux Mint for the first time and I realized that I need to resize my LUKS encrypted partition. Gparted seems like the best software to do the job, but I cannot for the life of me find a deb file to install the NON "live" version of 1.1.0.
The version in the Mint package repo is only at v 0.3 and I would like the latest version, because there have been many updates related to LUKS since 0.3.
I found the source code for 1.1.0 but I am not THAT knowledgable with compiling, and I am unfortunately going down a rabbit hole because every single step of the way I am encountering problems with dependencies.
Please can someone help me find a installable version of 1.1.0 (non Live) for Mint? Thank you.
The following is my rant a little ranty and probably just shows how dumb I am, but these are the problems I was having.
Doing ./configure in gparted lead me to have to install build-essentials before continuing. After that, ./configure said the the version of intltool that comes with build-essentials was too old. So I had to track down a newer version of intltool (which seems like abandoned software at this point). Once I "make" and "install" that, it tells me that intltools has an error. It uses Perl regex that has been depreciated in the newer version of Perl on my system. No patch is available, so I had to open up /usr/local/bin/intltool-update and literally correct the regex in like a dozen places. Then after that there was still another error, which I forget what it was but I got so fed up that I just uninstalled build-essentials and came here to ask for help.
I don't want to build this software myself. Due to my unsuccessful attempts to build like 3 layers of dependencies, I have all kinds of crap files in my home dir and /usr/local that I don't want, but I'm not sure whether its safe to delete them. I am just getting so fed up by the out-of-date software packages available in the Mint repo. This OS was really highly rated, but it's like the package maintainers fell asleep at the wheel. I had a much better experience compiling and installing packages from Pacman in my headless Manjaro Raspberry Pi. At least those packages seems more up to date.
