Unable to install parrot-gnome


Tried to install parrot-gnome, because i have got more and more problem with mate.
But i get this error when run apt install parrot-gnome

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
parrot-gnome : Depends: gnome-shell-extension-refreshwifi but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

hey, have you tried to run sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade and then


from your error it seems the “gnome-shell-extension-refreshwifi” package is not available anymore, and the “Parrot-gnome” package seems to be hooked with that shell extension, so it’s configuration has to be modified by the dev in order to be installable again.

hi, thanks for having reported that

this is the git repository of the involved packages

and this is the file that needs to be modified to fix the problem

if you would like to contribute, feel free to modify that file, remove the broken dependency and do a pull request to take all the credits over the fix

otherwise you need to wait just a little more for me or another dev to have enough spare time to fix the problem

I’m still new to git, it should be done but check if you can, to be sure

done, the update will land on parrot stable within tomorrow
