Re: [Sawfish] installing sawfish in xubuntu

Synaptic failed to install Sawfish saying:

"Could not apply changes! Fix broken packages firs."

Perhaps it is because when i updated the package list a dialog said:

GPG error: photonic InRelease: The following
signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not
available: NO_PUBKEY 4B9D3375057549E2Failed to fetch  500
Internal Server Error
Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old
ones used instead.

BTW the Starfish-pager is not marked as coming from nano...

ancient versions. neither defvar-setq nor edge-actions are included
(that's required for the snipped you told us you tried out).

current versions:

sawfish 1.9.0

You should either manually install recent versions, or try using them
from my repo (first uninstall Ubuntu stuff, it's not just ancient
versions, but also ancient packaging, new ones likely conflict with
those old ones):

deb photonic main
deb-src photonic main

public key can be retrieved from key-servers.
