LAN messaging with XMPP protocol (jabber) to chat or to copy and paste links and texts in rdp sessions
Here is how I satisfied my need to have a LAN messaging program, not really to chat with other users on the same LAN, which I could do, but to copy and paste links or texts between a rdp client and a rdp server when copy and paste from/to clipboard does not work in rdp sessions, for instance with some Android rdp clients.
These are the programs I used:
- Openfire 3.9.3 on the "server" (which can be a simple Windows pc): a realtime collaboration server using XMPP/Jabber
- Miranda IM 0.10.23.0: a multi-protocol instant messaging client
- Xabber 0.9.30b: an Android Jabber client
GPG key error updating aptitude, Debian upgrade
I had an old Debian Etch machine which I did not upgrade for some time, and when I attempted to install ghostscript by using Synaptic, I've got some unmet dependencies errors with libc6 and libc6-dev. Any attempt to reinstall or upgrade these packages failed, so I decided to try to upgrade the whole system to Lenny:
- I replaced
#sudo aptitude update
But I've got this error: The error can be solved downloading the GPG signatures with these commands:
#gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
#gpg --export --armor xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx | apt-key add -
I've tried a few servers (subkeys.pgp.net, keyserver.pgp.com, wwwkeys.eu.pgp.net) but they could not find the "right" keys...
Then I did the
#sudo aptitude updateagain.
#sudo aptitude install apt dpkg aptitude
#sudo aptitude full-upgrade
