#1368: xulrunner installation breaks dpkg (udig installer)
 Reporter:  kalxas   |       Owner:  live-demo@…              
     Type:  defect   |      Status:  new                      
 Priority:  blocker  |   Milestone:  OSGeoLive8.0             
Component:  LiveDVD  |    Keywords:  udig, geopublishing.org  
Changes (by hamish):

  * keywords:  => udig, geopublishing.org


 the /var/lib/dpkg/info/xulrunner-1.9.2.postinst script can't find
 /usr/sbin/update-alternatives because it lives in /usr/bin not /usr/sbin.

 A little 'sed -i -e' magic on /var/lib/dpkg/info/xulrunner-1.9.2.postinst
 to fix the path, then another 'apt-get install', gets the package
 installed successfully, but really this should be fixed upstream.

 The install script is grabbing the xulrunner package from the
 de.geopublishing.org ppa, which is also causing trouble with a GPG error
 due to "KEYEXPIRED". (see #1344)
