    Package dependencies cannot be resolved

    I tried downloading media player codecs and got this error: Package dependencies cannot be resolved


    The following packages have unmet dependencies:

    I tried sudo apt-get -f install to fix any broken packages but it didn't work, this was returned:

    Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.

    Re: Package dependencies cannot be resolved

    Hi

    That looks like dependency hell there

    Can we take a look at your sources.

    Open a terminal and type

    Code:
    grep ^ /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*
    Copy and past the output from that command between code tags like this

    [code] output [/code]

    to get output like this

    Code:

    Re: Package dependencies cannot be resolved

    Hi

    I expected to see an unholy mix of ppa's and repo versions That's what usually causing these problems.

    However, it seems to be a known problem.

    Take a look at this thread.

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...eg/+bug/971012

    Poster #9 had a solution that worked for a couple of people.

    Kind regards

    Re: Package dependencies cannot be resolved

    I try almost every thing that I know by cleaning my cache and what found related to this but i found this helped

    You need to install unmet dependencies etc gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg to install this first you need to install libavcodec53 libavcodec-extra-53 libavformat53 to install this libavcodec53, libgsm1 libschroedinger-1.0-0, libavcodec53, libavcodec-extra-53 libavformat53, gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg, gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad, ffmpeg or you can try like this

    sudo apt-get install libgsm1 libschroedinger-1.0-0 libavcodec53 libavcodec-extra-53 libavformat53 gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad ffmpeg

    if it says to install any unmet dependencies then install them first.

    or you can wait for ubuntu developer but I dont know who told them to focused on GUI

    I hope it will help you

    try aptitude instead of apt-get

    I think you need to
    Code:
    apt-get install aptitude
    on 12.04+

    then you would type

    Code:
    sudo aptitude install ....
