How to load OSCAR in LinuxMint
hello,
I'm a fervent LinuxMint Cinnamon user, but can anybody tell me how and where to find OSCAR for that OS?

RE: How to load OSCAR in LinuxMint
Hi BartSr! - Welcome

Here is the link, which is the same as at the top of the page.
Link:  https://www.sleepfiles.com/OSCAR/

It is listed as "Ubuntu/Debian".  Not knowing your Linux knowledge level, I have listed some steps that I've posted before.

OSCAR needs certain system files to operate.  Try copying the following command line. If your system has the file it will be ignored.
sudo apt-get install gtkhash libb2-1 libqt5opengl5 libqt5serialport5 libqt5printsupport5 libqt5xml5

Next, you must use 'sudo dpkg -i oscarname.deb' -where "name" is the version of oscar package you want to install.
Example: sudo dpkg -i oscar_1.0.1-t1_Ubuntu_amd64.deb

You might need to create a Quick Launch shortcut on your desktop.  If you are unfamiliar with this, right-click anywhere on an open area of your desktop.  The 5th option from the top is labeled, "+ Create a new launcher here. . .", select it.  In the Command box either enter or navigate to the /usr/bin/oscar link.   Of course the Name box is a no-brainer.  

Please report back of either success or problems.

Good Luck!

and that worked , but after that
Next, you must use 'sudo dpkg -i oscarname.deb' -where "name" is the version of oscar package you want to install.

Example: sudo dpkg -i oscar_1.0.1-t1_Ubuntu_amd64.deb


This example did not work. It says: no permission to the archive. What did I wrong?

RE: How to load OSCAR in LinuxMint
Did you issue the command in the directory where the oscar.deb is located? If not, the easiest way of doing this is to use the file explorer (Nemo?) to navigate to the directory that has the download. Probably it is "/home/YourName/Downloads". Right-click anywhere and select "Open in Terminal", then issue the command. This saves a lot of "cd" commands.

RE: How to load OSCAR in LinuxMint
Based off your last image, you are specifying an incorrect package name.  You typed, oscar_1.1.0-r1_Ubuntu_amd64.deb.
correct package name is, oscar_1.0.1-r1_Ubuntu_amd64.deb.

Sorry, but for me it is too complicated. I went back to Windows10. Thanks anyway
