fslint to be deleted?
« on: 2020/08/17, 13:35:40 »
I come back from my hoildy and I see 800 packeges to be installed and 32 to be removed... unfortunatly also fslint (wich is such a usefull tool).Since it's also no longer in Kubuntu, I would like to ask if somebody knows something?
KOmme aus dem Urlaub zurück und sehe 800 neue Pakete und 32 zu entfernende. Darunter leider auch fslint, was ein sehr nützliches tool ist. Weiß jemand näheres? Füße stillhalten?

Hmmm, I just installed it from there and it made no menu entry, wouldn't start from terminal, and didn't even show with "which fslint".
Also needs GPG key before it can be installed:
Code: [Select]
curl -fsSL https://www.preining.info/rsa.asc | apt-key add -
I liked FSlint for finding dupes and haven't found another GUI alternative that works as well. I was impressed at first that someone had ported it to Python3 when the original developer had no interest in doing so. Shame I wasn't successful with it. YMMV.

@hendrikL - do you have it installed?

I am sorry, no.
I was looking with apt search for it and  stumbled over it, I have for other reasons that repository aktive.
Didn't investigate much time on it.
And if I take a deeper look, fslint-gui is missing, because of removing phyton2
And yes a port to python3 is missing.
Never used fslint, nor I knew about it.
In debian there is rmlint but if it is good as fslint, but there are more out in the wild!?

There are a few cli dupe finders in the repos - rmlint, fdupes etc., but fslint was about the only GUI one and it worked quite well.
I saw that Github page and someone there mentioned DupeGuru which I tried and it works fine but less intuitive than FSlint. No Debian package either.

Sad news. I used fslint a lot...
Similar but not same is the dupeguru. Is open source but I don't like to use packages outside mirrors.

Not in Sid mirrors, only Buster or earlier. It depends on Python2 and the developer is not going to rewrite it for Python3 so it will never be available for Debian versions later than Buster unless some intrepid developer adopts it and ports it for Python3.

sunrat I understand what you say but yesterday I found again in the repos the fslint and I installed. yes I got some python2 stuff but it does not interface with python3. Everything works...
I don't know what will happen in the future but for the time being I have it installed and during the weekend I will clean my disk just in case it will be removed again.
It is very useful program.

What repos? It's not in the siduction or Debian unstable repos which are the standard ones for siduction.
