I am using Fedora 24 and I would like to install splashtop streamer to be able to work from home.

Sadly there is no installer/package provided for Fedora but only for Ubuntu.

So I used alien to convert the debian package to an rpm. There is a required dependency celt-0.7.1. I installed it using dnf. They also provide a tar.gz containing celt071 which I compiled and installed.

But when I try to install the rpm : sudo dnf install splashtop-streamer- I have the following error:

Error: nothing provides needed by splashtop- streamer- (try to add '--allowerasing' to command line to replace conflicting packages)

How can I fix this error? Because the library lib celt seems to be installed on my system, I am not sure what is missing. If you need more info ask me.

The celt package you have installed provides a different name for the library than the deb package is expecting.

There is no Fedora package that will provide what that package is looking for. Make sure you have celt071 installed, then run ln -s /usr/lib64/ Then do rpm -i --nodeps splashtop-streamer- Assuming that was the only dependency you still needed, I think it should work.

No I still have the same error, I try to create a symbolic name in /usr/lib to the existing libcelt I have on my computer but it does not work.

Sorry, I missed that the package I suggested provides .so.2, not .so.0. Making the symbolic link will not create the provides that you need. I'll update the answer.
