Was wondering if anyone had managed to get the termux-desktop working from Xeffyr's repository.

https://github.com/xeffyr/termux-x-repository

Unfortunately "termux-desktop" isn't found, and I'm at a bit of a loss to determine next steps. Is there a better source? I've done some googling but what returns seems to be a bit different -- https://wiki.termux.com/wiki/Package_Management

Which has an entry for Xeffyr's repo:

QUOTE
This repository mirroring packages from the termux.net. Unlike main repository, it also stores old versions of packages.

To setup this repository, follow these steps:

1. Get PGP key for this repository. You may need to install 'dirmngr' package.

apt-key adv --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv 9D6D488416B493F0

2. Add this to your sources.list:

# Xeffyr's Termux Packages mirror
deb https://termux.xeffyr.ml/ stable main

Then do apt update to update package lists.


And I'm still a bit confused as to what I'm grabbing for use on the Termux app on Gemini.

Would appreciate any pointers or experiences you have relating to this.

Using the instructions provided in the repository I was able to get this to work. Did you ensure that his package repository was added as part of the enable repo step?

Throw me a bone here.

Which repository? What commands? Did you find termux-desktop in the package lists? I can't seem to find where the hell it is, or am I supposed to just install something else?

Just frustrated with the process - I'd appreciate it if you could detail things a bit more.

I don't know why I had gotten turned around on this, but I can report that it does indeed work. I think I was looking at different repos and getting confused in the process.

Thanks for the help!

I'm trying on Termux
CODE
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/xeffyr/termux-x-repository/master/enablerepo.sh
bash enablerepo.sh

and I get
CODE
not an http or ftp url


salvo

EDIT: all went ok after typing
CODE
hash -r


Now I've only a problem (see another post in Linux section of the forum): I cannot find dash ("-") elsewhere with Italian Keyboard in graphic XTerm (in CLI it works well, under FN+"."), so I cannot use XTerm in Termux Desktop nor install programs (if I cannot type "apt-get install")

What do you get by installing it from that repository that you don't from e.g. Yalp Store (which is what I used)?

I just had a goal to utilize it, since the whole Linux flash-and-install procedure seemed alpha as hell -- so Termux is my stand-in until things improve.

I don't know what the differences are, personally. Just went with the first repository that made sense.
