INTRODUCING DEEPINES STORE AND DEEPINES REPOSITORY 4

Encabezado

After a lot of time and work, we gladly present the Deepines Store and the Deepines 4 Repository for Deepin 20. It has been a process of little more than a year, donating time and work, according to the resources and knowledge of the team. Please keep that in mind when criticizing our work, we have done our best, we are in the process of learning and we want to improve, so all constructive criticism and input will be welcome.

And although it has been a lot of work and effort, it has been a pleasure to develop the Deepines Store. The process has allowed us to learn a lot, in addition to sharing with wonderful people, that being realistic, there are always moments of tension, but that is normal, it is part of the process, it is part of human nature and it does not take away the wonderful.

That is why we are grateful to the collaborators, it has been a process of personal and professional growth. We also thank the community, because thanks to you this opportunity is possible, because the Deepines Store would be of no use without you to use it.

The application store for the Deepines Repository, was created with the aim of facilitating the installation of applications hosted in our repository, it provides a graphical alternative to installation with commands from the terminal.

Building the Deepines 4 Repository has also taken a long time, because the Deepin 20 development has brought many changes and uncertainty. So so far we can guarantee that the packages in our repository work correctly in Deepin 20.

FUNCTIONS AND CHARACTERISTICS

The operation is very simple, you mark the applications you want to install, then you click the install button in the lower right corner and wait for the installation to finish.

Ventana principal de la Tienda Deepines

During installation, the main window is hidden and only the installation log window is displayed.

Ventana de proceso de instalación de la Tienda Deepines

When the installation is complete, the main window will be displayed again.

The main features are:

  • Batch application installation.
  • Organization by categories.
  • Search for applications.
  • The description shows when hovering over the cards.
  • Access to the list of selected applications on the bottom edge.

INSTALLATION

The following table summarizes the differences between installing the Deepines Repository or the Deepines Store.

Application installation method
OptionTerminalGraphic interface
repository Deepines
Deepines Store

The Deepines Store allows us to install the applications of our repository graphically and also from the terminal. If you only want to install applications from the terminal and do not want to use the store, install only the Deepines 4 Repository. Both the Deepines Store and the Deepines Repository perform the configuration of repositories automatically.

IMPORTANT

At least read the full installation section before installing.

The Deepines Store and the Deepines 4 Repository are only compatible with Deepin 20.

If you have an inappropriate repository configuration, typically caused by manually modifying the /etc/sources.list file, the store and repository will not install.

The Deepines Store includes the Deepines Repository, If you install the store you do not need to install the Deepines Repository. In other words, just install one of the two.

Installation is simple, download the corresponding installer and install by double clicking on the .deb. It will also be available as usual from www.deepines.com.

The installation of applications requires superuser access and the Deepines Store is no exception, for that reason when you open the store, it will ask you for the password to allow the installation of the applications.

INSTALLATION PROBLEMS

If you're having trouble and can't install the store or repository, run the following commands to start a troubleshooting wizard. Open the terminal (Ctrl + Alt + T), copy and paste the complete commands and press the key Enter.

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/s384/store_deepines/Develop/deepines-preinstall-fix.sh

bash deepines-preinstall-fix.sh

rm deepines-preinstall-fix.sh

If the wizard does not solve the problem and you still cannot install the Deepin store or repository in Spanish, please write to us below in the comments or in our group Telegram.

FLATPAK AND SNAP

Many times we have been asked if the Deepines Store installs Flatpack and Snap applications. The answer is no. In addition to limited time and manpower resources, developing a store is not that easy for us. But it is possible and it is something we want to add in the future.

FUTURE CHALLENGES

We have many things that we would like to integrate to make Deepin the main distribution on your computer.

Between them:

  • Improve order of applications in categories.
  • Improve scaling for high resolution displays.
  • Integrating a progress bar, currently with heavy packages and slow internet tends to think that the installation "stuck", when in fact it is downloading the package.
  • Store apps update.
  • Uninstall the applications.
  • Add support for Snap and Flatpak formats.

credits: The store is the product of the hard work of Sebastián Trujillo (@Sebas) our programmer and also many other collaborators. Special thanks to all for the great dedication and effort during this last year of development of the store.

Hoping no one is left there, here are all those who have made it possible for you to have the new store today:

It was hard for everyone to make the deepines store. I hope that users who were eager to use the deepines repository will give positive opinions to the project and in turn success and motivation to their next interesting projects. There is still a world to discover.

Hi. This is my first post.
I have Deepin installed on my laptop (and completely removing Windows) from the Beta, and everything has worked perfectly. And when you announced your new Deepines store I was very excited. But when I downloaded it and started to install it, I started getting the errors that you mentioned above.

972 Screen Capturedeepin deb installer20200914211238

But this is where my confusion comes from. I have Deepin 20, in fact, since the Beta I have been updating little by little until I reach the final version.

973 Screen Capturedde control center20200914210839

And although I have edited the apt / sources.list file, the modification was to only add the Wine repository to be able to install some Windows applications (which I think should not (or should) have much impact).

When you install the store you already have the repository, you cannot install the two together because the store already has the repo included, if you want to have both, just install the store

does it have to do with manual editing of the souces.list? because I use some programs that are included in the repos like spotify or opera (with which I have not had problems), and others a little more intrusive like typora:

I'm not sure what your specific case is, but as the article says, remember that you can only have one of the two installed and not both, the store contains the repo, if you want the store then you cannot install the repo.

Let's wait and see what the rest of the team says.

I have given the opportunity to the native Deepin store but in many cases it installs very old versions of the software, try to install Telegram and install version 1.5 and this version asks me to update being that the store tells me that it is updated and does not need it . I tried to install the Deepines Store but I get an error, I have only touched the source.list to add the Google Chrome repository (I use it for my work and the official store did not want to install it, it gave me an error), I left the error of installation:

For those who are looking for an answer to my case, they only have to delete everything they added to the sources.list file, try to install (In my case, I did it from the console) and return, then they can edit the file again, which no longer throws errors (At the moment, he has not given them to me).

The store has a verification script to verify that low knowledge users in repositories have added things to sources.list.
Besides that it is not a good practice, that's what the sources.list.d directory is for, there should be .list files with the repositories you want to add.
This is to prevent those users from blaming deepines that their systems got corrupted.
I'm glad you came up with a solution.

pulseaudio-equalizer from this repository destroys pulse configuration in Deepin v20.
When you check Keep Settings it writes default.pa file in home / .config / pulse directory and after subtracting the pulse deamon is not able to start properly.
Remove it or add info that causes issues with V20.

Yarecco Jr. Hi,

I have it installed on my Deepin 20 with absolutely no problems, I downloaded it from the Deepines Store BTW, I think your system has another underlying issue related to audio but not to the installation of PulseAudio Equalizer.

In any case if you have an issue with the PulseAudio service you can try what Tomás Warynyca suggested above or just try re-installing PulseAudio.

PulseAudio Equalizer is doing what it is supposed to do, it must overwrite the default settings in order to keep the new equalizer settings you select.

Greetings!
