Unable to install Nokuntu

Posted: April 10, 2013 in Linux, Ubuntu

If you are unable to install Nokuntu on Ubuntu, and got this error message :

unable to open file ‘/var/lib/dpkg/ : Is a directory

Assuming that the working directory is where the nokuntu deb file reside, do the following :

mkdir nokuntu
cd nokuntu
ar x ../nokuntusp*.deb
mkdir control
cd control
tar xzvf ../control.tar.gz
rm -rf usr
tar czvf control.tar.gz *
mv control.tar.gz ..
cd ..rm -rf control
ar -r ../nokuntusp-new.deb debian-binary control.tar.gz data.tar.gz
sudo dpkg -i ../nokuntusp-new.deb

After that all you have to do is install all the gambas dependencies
