View Full Version : gnu cash problem

February 2nd, 2005, 05:38 PM

I am a total newbie... 8-[ fresh plastic smell and all... anyway I tried to install gnucash and it tells me that I need to install the following dependencies: libarts or libarts-alsa, libdvdread2, and libvorbis0.

My problem is that I have no idea how to get these dependencies if I have already linked apt-get or synaptic to other repositories? - I.E. Multiverse and Universe. :!:

how'd you try to install it?

sudo apt-get install gnucash

should work and resolve all dependency issuses automatically if i'm not mistaken

I'm going to sound like a broken record on these forums, but I'd recommend using aptitude or synaptic instead of apt-get. Aptitude is a drop in replacement for apt-get for common tasks, and has much better handling of automatically installed dependencies.
