glade-gtk2 missing from repository?


I updated my TX1 to Jetpack 2.3

I now seem to be on ubuntu 16.04 Xenial

I depend on a package called glade-gtk2 to build a gui app for the TX1

This is now gone from the repositories? :-(

Can I configure the TX1 to look for it in the Trusty repositories? If so how?


Also tried to install eclipse and eclipse-cdt

eclipse-cdt reports as installed successfully but no C/C++ functionality is in eclipse

Why on earth would you move from a stable 14.04 to this crap? :-(

Even trying to install CDT from software update gives an error

An error occurred while installing the items
session context was:(profile=PlatformProfile, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Install, operand=null --> [R] 1.4.1.dist-8v7oFS1FCmSPZrHoSx597H, action=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.touchpoint.eclipse.actions.InstallFeatureAction).

Hi mrbmcg,

Why on earth would you move from a stable 14.04 to this crap? :-(
That canonical Ubuntu moved the LTS support from 14.04 -> 16.04 - notice the “LTS” on: “Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS (Xenial Xerus)” per:

You can find particular libraries by using the “apt-file search” command to see which debian package you need to install and if it exists on this 16.04 version of Ubuntu (sometimes the packages are just “re-named” from previous ubuntu versions like 14.04). You could also troll through the ubuntu web-ui for packages (obviously for xenial instead of trusty):

or check on Launchpad etc to see if the package was renamed or grab the sources:

And if it isn’t available on 16.04 (this is a ubuntu thing not an NVIDIA issue) you can either download a previous version and install it, or you can download the sources and build from it. But in no cases is this a bug from NVIDIA SW.

Hope this helps.


i think 14.04 remains LTS until 2019. at least that is what the roadmap shows. my experience has been the most problematic issue is the move to 64bit userspace , many packages lag behind in 64bit coverage. personally i’m happy for the change to 64bit even if there are a few bumps on the way because the packages that do work are much better than the 32bit equivelent.


Just because Ubuntu move from 14.04LTS to 16.04LTS should not mean that the vendor of an embedded system (i.e. Nvidia) update their supported file system lock stock and barrel.

I’m still running Windows 7 on my PC. Why? Because I don’t want to introduce problems that don’t currently exist.

Build glade from source? Have you seen how many packages it depends on? No thanks.

Just my 2p worth.
