    dependancy issues

    hello,

    I've been having trouble installing a program on my computer due to dependancy issues. Is there something I can try or do that will work for any dependancy issues?

    Thanks!

    what do you mean by "don't set your config/app issue"?

    gordintoronto:

    What program, and how are you installing it? What version of Ubuntu?
    I'm runing ubuntu 10.04 LTS 32 bit, and the program that i'm trying to install is inssider version 0.1.1.0429, and I'm trying to install it through a .deb file, because I have been unable to locate it in synaptic.

    use this one: http://www.metageek.net/products/inssider/linux/

    download it into an empty folder, then into a terminal:

    sudo dpkg -i *.deb

    use this one: http://www.metageek.net/products/inssider/linux/
    download it into an empty folder, then into a terminal: sudo dpkg -i *.deb
    I tried to enter the command that you gave me; in my case, it's:

    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo dpkg -i inssider_0.1.1.0429_i386.deb


    And the response I got was:

    dpkg: error processing inssider_0.1.1.0429_i386.deb (--install):
    cannot access archive: No such file or directory
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    inssider_0.1.1.0429_i386.deb

    I put the file in a new folder, I transfered it on the desktop, and I even deleted another one that I had previously downloaded, so that the computer couldn't be confused with which one to pick.

    Any ideas of what to do or what that reply means?

    Yes, it means that you need to CD to the folder you downloaded the program into.

    However... It would be easier to just use the Nautilus file manager, click your way to the folder, then double-click on the downloaded file.

    Your initial post said there were dependency issues. If there are, they will show up at this point. Carefully note what files are needed, and use Synaptic to install them, if possible.

    I can't help you at that point, because I haven't used 32-bit for two+ years, on desktop or laptop.

    Re: dependancy issues

    I never thought of using synaptic to download additional dependancies. However, I'm not sure how to do that; the precise error that pops-up is:


    Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libmono-system-web2.0-cil (>= 2.6.7)

    I checked, and saw through synaptic that libmono...2.0 had already been installed, so I reinstalled it, and even downloaded the version 1.0 without success. Is there any helpthat you could bive me?

    I can't help you at that point, because I haven't used 32-bit for two+ years, on desktop or laptop.
    What do you mean by that? is there a difference in between 32bit and 64 bit ubuntu, and if there is, what is it?

    It would be easier to just use the Nautilus file manager
    I also noticed that I have nautilus already downloaded. How can I use it as a file manager and how does it work?

    Re: dependancy issues

    you will not be able to install it with Lucid due to missing libmono required version packages

    packages.ubuntu.com/en/lucid/cli-mono/

    install oneiric to get the required libmono packages

    If you click on any selection under Places, the program which starts is Nautilus.
