I just received my Nitrokey Pro 2 and started to go trough the installation process. First step was okay,
libccid was in my OS repository with a decent version (1.4.22).
Then, things started to get complicated. My OS (Trisquel 8.0) is based on Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial, hence the repository does not contain the
nitrokey-app package as explained in the download instruction page. So, I added the PPA, as instructed, to get the app installed. However, after running
sudo apt update && sudo apt install nitrokey-app, I got this message:
Package nitrokey-app is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source However, the following packages replace it: libnitrokey-common E: Package nitrokey-app has no installation candidate
After investigation, I noticed that the PPA did not contain a .deb package for Ubuntu 16.04.
Is there any deb package I can get for my system (even if it’s an older version of the Nitrokey app, as long as it works)?
For information, the new Trisquel version 9.0 should come out in a few months and will be based on Ubuntu 18.04, so the problem will be fixed. I am just looking for a temporary workaround to make the Nitrokey Pro work.
