DEB from Website

Postby battlecat » Tue Dec 09, 2014 10:18 pm

Hi:

I wanted to point out that the website download of the DEB file does not actually start the download. It treats the file on my end like a text page displaying the code. I am using Firefox 34 on a LM 17 clean install.

For me to actually download the file I had to do a Right click and save file. I checked with other DEB download sites and this is the case. On other sites when I click a deb file it offers, via a dialog, to save the file.

What is the difference on the Wah!Cade - Mah!Cade page that it displays the code?

Thank you!

You need to check out the latest MahCade to get a satisfactory working setup.

hi Zombie:

Yeah I thought that is what I downloaded from the website.

My issue was that instead of offering to save the DEB file it opens it up as plain text in my browser.

I thought that there might be some code in the site that could be changed since no other DEB files open as plain text when I go to download them

Thanks!

I have recently been made aware of issues with the new server serving files from WP incorrectly. Reviewing and fixing this week.

Thanks for the update.
