Hello I have tried to install the PPA on a pendrive linux USB running Ubuntu 12.04
I've had these messages :

"the following packages include unsatisfied dependencies :

gns3 : Depends: xdotool but it is not installable
recommends wireshark but not installable

impossible to correct problems, defectuous packages are in mode "keep as is"

"
May be this is meant to be installed with latest ubuntu version, though in the introduction your refered to 12.04

I think wireshark should not be an issue but that xdotool I think is required in your PPA no ?

The package xdotool should be available from the main ubuntu repository. It's possible being a USB boot, that apt sources list (/etc/apt/sources.list) is different from normal.

As seen here: http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=xdotool, xdotool is available in every Ubuntu release... including 12.04

Hello, thanks for the reply
I do not think this is related to the USB drive but rather to the fact that I run ubuntu in French I have seen things that looks as if a translation to FR was searched.

Since last time, I manually added to the source.list :

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/gns3/ppa/ubuntu precise main

because it was not there ni spite of my typing the command sin your first post.

and I added also :

deb http://fr.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise main universe

that was quoted as a vlaid miror to get xdotool from the link you gave above.

after that I did :
sudo apt-get update

and then again :
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gns3/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install dynamips gns3

the result I get is that :

"

W: Vous pouvez lancer « apt-get update » pour corriger ces problèmes.
[email protected]:~$ "

this is in French, I translate "Fait" is "done"
and the last sentence :
W: You can launch "apt-get-update" to correct these problems"
which I did with no result.

what surpises me is that it seems to be a problem to have amd64 Packages and i386 Packages, I don't understand,
the directory /var/lib/apt/lists is full of those dual definitions ?

with all that I do not even know yet how I should be launching gns3 if ever the installation would succeed

What this message is telling you is that you have two entries for the PPA (You'll need to check both /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/sources.d/*) and remove one of them.

I don't think this is a problem with having both amd64 and i386, but rather the problem above this.

Once GNS3 is installed it can be launched from the 'Programs' menu (either search 'GNS3' or it should be located in the 'Education' category

Could you post a change log?

@Daniel - or anyone else who knows

Do you have instructions on how to compile dynamips on OS X?

And can someone update http://www.gns3.net/dynamips/ with v0.2.11 info please

I'm afraid I don't... I would presume it would be similar to compiling on Linux, but couldn't say for certain.

I think Jeremy may well be the one for that...

Heelo claydon_dan,
Are you planning on upgrading the PPA to GNS3 0.8.7?

Author:  claydon_dan [ Tue Jul 15, 2014 6:37 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: GNS3 Launchpad Instructions. Or HOW TO DOWNLOAD .deb pgk

Absolutely! I shall try and get these updated shortly (GNS3, Dynamips and VPCS all need updating!)
