i followed the instructions on the git, but cool-retro-term wont load. any thoughts?
here are few steps for install cool－retro－term rightly, please step by step, one step one command, some commands look very long, don’t panic, you can copy and paste, take care of its format especially:
firstly，Install the necessary packages. open a terminal, then input:
1.sudo apt update
2.sudo apt install build-essential qmlscene qt5-qmake qt5-default qtdeclarative5-dev qml-module-qtquick-controls qml-module-qtgraphicaleffects qml-module-qtquick-dialogs qml-module-qtquick-localstorage qml-module-qtquick-window2 qml-module-qt-labs-settings qml-module-qt-labs-folderlistmodel
secondly, compile it (it takes about 30 minutes):
4.git clone --recursive https://github.com/Swordfish90/cool-retro-term.git
6.git reset --hard dac2b4
7.qmake && make
8.cp -r qmltermwidget/src/qmldir qmltermwidget/lib/kb-layouts qmltermwidget/lib/color-schemes qmltermwidget/src/QMLTermScrollbar.qml qmltermwidget/QMLTermWidget
lastly, installe it to the system directory, then you can be started from any location:
10.sudo make install
go back to the user directory and run it again, enter:
well done! right-click on the cool-retro-term to enter the settings, enjoy.
if you want to run cool-retro-term maximally to full screen, just input:
Awesome! Worked great!
If you want to have it start from the Applications menu, do this from the cool-retro-term directory:
sudo cp cool-retro-term.desktop /usr/share/applications
If you get the error
E: Package 'qt5-default' has no installation candidate
it is because Ubuntu 21.04 no longer has a
qt5-default package—it was removed from Debian
bullseye, which Ubuntu 21.04 was based on. Instead, use this command to install the needed packages:
sudo apt install build-essential qmlscene qt5-qmake qtdeclarative5-dev qml-module-qtquick-controls qml-module-qtgraphicaleffects qml-module-qtquick-dialogs qml-module-qtquick-localstorage qml-module-qtquick-window2 qml-module-qt-labs-settings qml-module-qt-labs-folderlistmodel qtbase5-dev qtchooser qt5-qmake qtbase5-dev-tools
I’m sorry but can we discuss that amazing pouch you got going on there? Is this DIY?
There’s a whole thread about it.
