Archey Puzzle

Postby Swamper » 03 Feb 2014 15:06

Greetings, I'm slightly puzzled about installing Archey and Screenfetch. Although I've had no problem installing and running both on other Debian-based distros, Archey doesn't work on either my lap- or desktop. Screenfetch worked fine on the laptop, but it took several tries to get it to work on my desktop (a dual-booted iMac). Below is what I see in terminal when I try to run Archey. :?:

Code: Select all

fff@imac-solydx:~$ archey
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/archey", line 304, in <module>
    func()
  File "/usr/bin/archey", line 193, in user_display
    output ('User', username)
  File "/usr/bin/archey", line 134, in output
    result.append(output)
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'output' referenced before assignment
fff@imac-solydx:~$

I'm sorry for the late reaction, but I hoped others might know about these applications (I've never heard of them). I couldn't find it in the repositories.

Regarding the message you got: this is an error only the developer can solve. This error indicates that a variable (output) is used before it is declared. Most (interpreter) languages need to have a variable declared before it can be used. So, I'm afraid that the only thing you can do, is to send the maintainer of the package a message.

Thanks, Schoelje, for the info. BTW, how did you get that nickname? :o

FWIW: Archey was originally written for Arch Linux, but is now available as a .deb package for Debian and Ubuntu users. It shows your hardware and software info in terminal, but with a bit more detail than inxi. Screenfetch does the same thing. See below:

I have a thing for words, and phrases that has fallen into disuse.

Here's the definition of the word:
Scullion
"low-ranking domestic servant who performs menial kitchen tasks," late 15c., perhaps from M.Fr. escouillon "a swab, cloth," dim. of escouve "broom, twig," from L. scopa (pl. scopæ) "broom," related to scapus "shaft, stem." Or an alteration of O.Fr. souillon "scullion," by influence of scullery.
It later was used as:
Scoundrel
A dishonest or unscrupulous person; a rogue.
You see that, over time, a person of low social status becomes a person with bad intentions, a criminal. The word reminds me of where I came from, and that one's social status is not to be mistaken for that person's intentions.

Schoelje,

Many trhanks for the explanation.

LOL. Many years ago, I used to "hang out" in Amsterdam and environs and learned some Dutch after frequent visits...maar nu heb ik helemaal veel vergeten. When I saw your nickname I was curious, so I looked it up and thought, "a rogue or scoundrel?!" Consquently, I wondered if you had somehow "earned" that nickname as a youngster. Apparently not. :)

I just downloaded screenfetch out of interest after reading this topic and:

This is the output on SolydKBE.

So maybe it has to do with different debian versions.

I can confirm that Screenfetch is working.

For SolydX I have modified the script though.

@ c.monty: Apparently Archey works best with Arch and Arch-based distros, but is fickeld with Debian-based ones. Since I can use both Screenfetch and inxi, I can live without Archey. :lol:

BTW, I'd like to see your modified script for SolydX, if possible. :)

I've just added these lines in section # Distro Detection - Begin

Code: Select all

			elif [[ "${distro_detect}" == "SolydXK" ]]; then
				distro="SolydXK"
