Post the output here and please use the code display tags ??? What does this sentence mean?
Look how I quote your post to make it more readable. Above in the editor when you reply to a message you can choose tags, in this case the "quote" button: "

Same goes with terminal output, you use the "code" tags: </>

When you hover over the buttons it will show you a tool tip, so you know what it does.

Now back to the issue. You finally updated your newly installed system I guess from what I was able to see.
Now let us try the steps from before.

Post the output of:

Code: Select all

cat /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc
cat /etc/slapt-get/slapt-srcrc
I hope the repos are now fully functional as you were able to upgrade all packages to its recent state. I know we are not really synchronized here and the whole wall of text with French parts is not easy on the eyes but it looked somehow successful.

Then try to find that package again:

Code: Select all

slapt-get --search libxkbcommon
See how the text above is neatly put into appropriate tags?

At this point I am not sure if that package is already installed by default because I never installed it consciously on purpose. If not you can just install it by typing:

Code: Select all

sudo slapt-get -i libxkbcommon
Later let us try the Opera thing even though I do not recommend it but maybe as a proof of concept.

Now that looks better. I guess the problem was with the mirrors. You can see that the package was already installed, so the last step was not even necessary.

Code: Select all

root[/]# slapt-get --search libxkbcommon[/b]
libxkbcommon-0.5.0-x86_64-1gv [inst=oui]: libxkbcommon (library to handle keyboard descriptions)
 
Another thing to learn. You only should use your root account when performing system administration or maintenance, for the rest it suffices to use your user account.

For example the above command only needs your user account, means without sudo and not using the root account,

Code: Select all

slapt-get --search <package>

I think I know one of the things papa did wrong, and wouldn't admit. He opened gslapt and manually edited the repos in there. It is possible to do that, but you really need to know what you're doing, and he didn't. BTW, the easier way to switch mirrors is through the "Repository Mirrors" application from the System menu (or "reposetup" from the command line).

He also made other changes. Somehow he changes something that among others, changed his bash prompt. He's also using a root account, which is disabled by default in Salix. And who knows what else?

So no, this was not a case of "I did a new installation and can't get this thing working". It was rather a "I did a new installation, changed a lot of things that I'm not revealing, and can't get this thing working".

Yes it's true I manually modified the file containing the repositories. What for? I have already installed Archlinux on another disk and I followed the documentation of Mr. BEZIES who recommended the modification of the file etc / mirrors. Through the forum someone told me that there was a Salix application that allowed to do it. I used it to select a French source. When you install Salix for the first time you don't know all the applications it offers. Errare humanum est!

Yes, that's right. And I do not hide it since it shows. Many distributions display the user's name or root name by default. I got my thing. I hope this is not a crime?

Mr. Gapan, I am not interested in your police elucubrations. In the future, please do not answer me because you really did not interest me. Now I would like to close this post. Can someone tell me how to do it.

Which you failed to mention in any of your previous posts. Therefore sending everyone here on a wild goose chase.

There is however a startup guide, linked from our main page, which mentions all that. It would have taken you 5 mins to read it.

But you did hide it. You even stated that it was that the installation was done on a blank disk, leaving everyone to think that there was nothing else that could interfere. You asked for help and withheld information on purpose.

It's not a crime. It's just highly frowned upon.

Then you're going to have a hard time in these forums.
