Lightsquid fix *unsupported*

  • I figured out a way to get lightsquid working on 2.2. This is not supported until someone fixes the pbi package. So please use at your own risk.

    Log into the console to run the below commands:

    create missing symbiotic links:

    ln -s /usr/pbi/lightsquid-amd64/local/www/lightsquid /usr/local/www/lightsquid
    ln -s /usr/pbi/lightsquid-amd64/local/etc/lightsquid /usr/local/etc/lightsquid
    ln -s /usr/pbi/lightsquid-i386/local/www/lightsquid /usr/local/www/lightsquid
    ln -s /usr/pbi/lightsquid-i386/local/etc/lightsquid /usr/local/etc/lightsquid

    perl is out of wack, so I installed it manually. Probably a way to do it via symbiotic links but this is working for me
