Re: Repositories

Are you referring to https://kx.studio/Repositories ? If not, which software and which repo exactly?

If you're reffering to the kx.studio repos as linked above, I recommend the following steps:

sudo apt remove bunsen-os-release

This removes a package that might confuse third-party installation scripts that assume they are running on a specific Debian release. Then you can follow the instructions on https://kx.studio/Repositories starting from the step "# Download package file". After doing that, you can run sudo apt-get update to load the new package lists, and then use sudo apt-get install or synaptic package manager to install packages from those repos.

Note that if you add external repos they might contain software that is broken, or sideload stuff that breaks things. In particular the repo above seems to contain gcc5, which is an ancient version of the gcc compiler. Use only repos by projects that you trust.

Kx.studio seems to ship applications as tarballs ready to run: https://kx.studio/Downloads I would recommend using those instead. Download, extract, doubleclick, it looks like.

Re: Repositories

When installing 3rd party software that has .deb packages you need to look for a version that corresponds to the installed Debian version.

If not, then try looking for tarballs which you can simply unzip into your home directory. I would recommend creating a bin folder in your home directory then inside that directory create another folder with name of the software (eg: kxstudio) where you can then unzip the tarball into.
