Broken Debian Plymouth Manager?

Postby Orbmiser » 29 Aug 2013 01:30

Don't know if this a Debian issue or SolydK issue or a theme issue.

Was trying out the different themes all were working fine. At some point I installed Solydkbo and saw some downloading and reverting to unstable? Afterwards could not change back to SolydK theme. It was there and was gone from the Themes installed.

When I try to install it ask Continue installing theme: plymouth-themes-solydk and I click on yes.
Says installed but not showing in themes to select. And something removed solydk theme.

So went to synaptic and doesn't show installed so select for install and says broken packages so I select fix and get
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.
E: Unable to correct dependencies
E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.
E: Unable to correct dependencies
Don't know what went wrong trying to install them solydkbo but after the get8,get9,get10,get11 unstable messages at bottom of dialog and longer than usual recompiling the image message?
Just doesn't work right anymore.

So how do I clean out the corruption and reinstall Plymouth manager back to working fine when I first installed it.
And some one should check the themes. I am pretty sure but could be wrong that it was the solydkbo that caused the problem. But could be one of the others?

Any help is appreciated thanks. As just want to get it back to the way it was and don't know how to fix broken packages if synaptic doesn't know then I don't.

And at some point after getting it back to normal. I need to file a request to the dev of the Plymouth manager. As it wrong for me to think that Preview means seeing the theme before installing? Seems kind of backwards to install theme just to see a preview.

So now selected joy which starts with the Debian symbol with the dots.
Then half way in switches to Solydkbo so confused as have two boot splashes to desktop?

Also when I try to remove solydkbo I get an error message
The package cannot be removed: details
It is part of a meta package.
Try apt instead
So don't know where to go from here as trying to reset plymouth manager back to defaults.

No biggie searched around google and debian and couldn't resolve so rolled back to clean install.
