On screen keyboard help

Fri Mar 24, 2017 9:37 pm

I am trying to install the matchbox keyboard and I get this error. subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
libpam-chksshpwd:armf
E: Sub=process /usr/bin/dkpg returned an error code (1)

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi

Just remove the package (sudo apt-get remove libpam-chksshpwd) and try the install again, It should work.

Thanks

I'm pretty sure you can ignore that "error" message.

Here's the rest of the information that would have been helpful if you posted it:

Code: Select all

Setting up libpam-chksshpwd:armhf (1.1.8-3.1+deb8u2+rpi2) ...
Installing new version of config file /etc/profile.d/sshpwd.sh ...
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/var/lib/chksshpwd/’: File exists
dpkg: error processing package libpam-chksshpwd:armhf (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/var/lib/chksshpwd/’: File exists

It's unrelated to the matchbox keyboard package.

Same problem. Reinstalling didn't solve the issue.

Try this! It work for me.

# nano /etc/apt/sour*.list

comment # at first line # deb http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ jessie main contrib non-free rpi

# rm -r /var/lib/chksshpwd

# apt update && apt upgrade -y

Enjoy!
