Seafile-gui ubuntu 17.10

Hi,
Can’t install seafile-gui on fresh ubuntu 17.10.
After i added the ppa and updated the repository i get:

seafile-gui : Depends: libevent-2.0-5 (>= 2.0.10-stable) but it is not installable
Depends: seafile-daemon (>= 5.1.2) but it is not installable

Hi,
same problem here :frowning:
Any fix for this?

With a “sudo aptitude install seafile-gui” it works :wink:

Sadly, doesn’t work anymore.
But I think that it is a Ubuntu Artful problem.

sudo apt update; sudo apt dist-upgrade; sudo apt autoremove
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:seafile/seafile-client
sudo apt update; sudo apt install seafile-gui

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
seafile-gui : Depends: libevent-2.0-5 (>= 2.0.10-stable) but it is not installable
Depends: seafile-daemon (>= 5.1.2) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Or

sudo aptitude install seafile-gui

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
seafile-gui : Depends: libevent-2.0-5 (>= 2.0.10-stable) which is a virtual package and is not provided by any available package

seafile-daemon : Depends: libevent-2.0-5 (>= 2.0.10-stable) which is a virtual package and is not provided by any available package

So there is still a problem with 17.10.

It looks like that libevent package is no more.
The new package is libevent-2.1-6 is already the newest version (2.1.8-stable-4).

Opened a bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libevent/+bug/1720398
So let’s see what happens there?

The bug is not in Ubuntu, it’s in the Seafile package. It has a hard dependency on an old libevent which of course doesn’t come with Ubuntu 17.10 anymore. I created a Seafile issue for this: https://github.com/haiwen/seafile/issues/1976

Any chance for a quick fix @daniel.pan?

This issue also affects the seafile drive client

It has been fixed and the PPA has been updated. You can now install seafile client on ubuntu 17.10 by:

sudo apt-get update -q
sudo apt-get install -y seafile-gui

The drive client would be fixed soon as well.

The drive client package for 17.10 is updated as well.
