Knoppix is Debian, and uses its repositories. You could check it yourself
from /etc/apt/sources.lists . The problem is that it mixes up different
stages, Stable, Testing, Experimental, etc., which creates these issues. The
issue is with Debian package, as my snapshots will show. I use both Debian
and Knoppix. Unfortunately, my Debian is Lenny, and Scope does not have a
Lenny version. Therefore, I am compelled to use Knoppix 7.2 as it was
Knoppix that introduced me to Geany the first time. :)

No, I tried, but that didn't work because of compatibility issue. I don't
force packages.

In the end, I thank you for responding to my email. I will try to install
Geany and plugins via sources.
