How to force Orage installation in XCFE 4.16


Until recently,
I had the Orage agenda which worked well under Debian Testing / XFCE 4.16
unfortunately I had to reinstall my Debian system
and I can't install the "orage" package anymore.

Do you know a trick to override these restriction?

Thank you.

PS: I know how to pin a package with APT, that's not the difficulty.

Debian + XFCE since ... GNOME 3 wink

You can install the package with gdebi, downloaded from here :

Re: How to force Orage installation in XCFE 4.16


I join the discussion. Sorry but to make orage work, not only the "data" file has to be installed, also the "runnable" part (orage_4.12.1-6_amd64.deb) but when in Debian 11 (bullseye) and try to install, messages are:

# dpkg -i orage_4.12.1-6_amd64.deb 
Selecting previously unselected package orage.

From the Debian bug https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo … bug=977628

with the upcoming release of Xfce 4.16, some libraries have dropped
their GTK-2 variant, which breaks unported software like for example
Orage, which is also unmaintained.

So, in order to make it work on Debian 11, orage should be ported to GTK-3 and then include the new packages in Debian 11.
