    Error message when trying to install mint desktop theme

    Hi there

    I was trying to install a mint theme using the following commands:
    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:satyajit-happy/themes
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install cinnamon-theme-minty

    And after all the package lists were read, I received the following error message:

    Reading package lists... Done
    Reading package lists... Done
    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:
    cinnamon-theme-minty : Depends: cinnamon but it is not installable
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
    glenn@acer:~$

    Can someone please shed light into what has occured? Please let me know.

    Cheers
    Glenn.

    You need to have Cinnamon installed. Info about a PPA here
