View Full Version : Help installing

January 26th, 2012, 09:23 PM
I was wondering if someone could please give me some help with the installation of CE. I am a former CE user but I left Ubuntu not long after the release of Unity now I'm back and would really like to have CE back but here is my problem. When I run this

wget -q http://ubuntuce.com/repos/Ubuntu_CE/apt/crosswire-launchpad-ppa.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo wget http://ubuntuce.com/repos/Ubuntu_CE/apt/sources.list.d/karmic_i386.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntuce.list; sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ubuntu-ce

I get this

Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
ubuntu-ce : Depends: xiphos but it is not going to be installed
Depends: wine-christian-repos but it is not going to be installed
Depends: ubuntu-ce-xsplash-artwork but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Does anyone have any idea of how it can be fixed?

As jerrys shows, the old version of CE is no more but there are plans for a new version, discussed here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1885790&highlight=christian+edition

Well that's unfortunate. Hopefully, the new version of CE will become a reality and hopefully soon. Thanks for the news guys.
