View Full Version : Ark:The utility is not in your PATH ???
Apr 9th 2006, 12:36 PM
That is what Ark tells me when I try to open a deb package. I know that isn't the way to install them, but that's how I install deb packages with broken dependencies. Can you guys help me solve the problem?

Try "kdesu ark". You need superuser privileges to deal with debs.

That didn't work. The problem occurs before I try to extract the deb package, the error messege shows during the opening of the file :(

Could be a problem with deb filebindings...try using the openfile dialog of ark to open your deb file

Could not start a subprocess.
An error occurred while trying to open the archive
That's what I get when I try that :(

I tried to troubleshoot a bit, for me the first instance of ark fails to open deb files (when using the right-click menu to open), but if I open a second instance it works, I can also open a deb file with the ark File|open dialog, so if that doesn't work you might actually have two problems (though most likely related).
The error message when trying to open from konsole with
kio (KMimeType): WARNING: mimetype not valid '' (missing entry in the file ?)
(The console method also fails only on first instance, if I already have an ark window open it works like a charm :P)

Hasn't anyone solved the problem or just I have I just downloaded Flight 7 and the problem is still there* >:(
For example how should I install Opera from deb package????

This works for me:
(1) Navigate to the directory holding the deb file.
(2) Right click on the .deb file.
(3) DO NOT close Ark after the error message.
(4) Instead, after clicking on OK in the error box, click on File>Open Recent>Name.of.your.deb.
