Cadence Not Available In Ubuntu 18.10 Or 19.04

Postby G M Slater » Wed Apr 24, 2019 3:49 pm

I am currently running Ubuntu 18.04 on my main computer. When attempting to update to 18.10 I noticed that Cadence was no longer supported and was going to be removed, so I backed out of the upgrade. I have a test machine that updated from 18.04 to 18.10, then to 19.04, and Cadence was indeed removed, and is no longer available to install via Synaptic. Will a newer version be available in the near future, or is Cadence now dead? Is there a way to install it in either 1810 or 19.04? I am happy with 18.04 on my main computer for now, but will need to upgrade eventually.

You can get Cadence from KXStudio. Follow the "install it manually" instructions on this page: https://kx.studio/Repositories

I followed the instructions to manually install the repositories, both kxstudio and gcc5. They all installed successfully, but are not showing in the Software & Updates window list of installed repos. Also, when I run sudo apt-get update, none of those repos are showing as being contacted. Any ideas as to how to resolve this?

Did you try the *.deb packages to install the repositories? They work great.

I installed the .deb packages. They installed fine, but the reops don't show up. I then used the command line. Same thing.

I had to follow the command-line instructions to get it working on my machine. Just curious, what it do you get if you run `sudo apt search cadence`?

Running sudo apt search cadence shows the following:

cadence/now 2:0.9.0+git20180427v5 all [residual-config]
(none)

Which version of Ubuntu doesn't show the KX repos?

Is it that the KX repos are available for 18.04 but not 18.10 or 19.04?

Using an LTS version makes sense for a music setup.

That's weird. It seems something went wrong. You could try:

Code: Select all

dpkg --configure -a

and maybe

Code: Select all

apt -f install


Then check again.

I was finally able to get this all resolved. First, I fished out the deb URL's for the missing repositories from the etc/apt/sources.list.d/kxstudio... list files on a different computer, then manually input them using the Add Repository tool on the Software & Updates window. This gave me the missing repos back, and Cadence then showed up as available in the Synaptic Package Manager. When I tried to install it, though, I got broken package errors, due to python3-dbus.mainloop.pyqt 20180318 Neon Fix not being available for installation. I was able to add and install that by adding the kxstudio gcc5-deps repository for Xenial. Cadence and all associated tools are now reinstalled and working correctly!
