View Full Version : [ubuntu] Totem dependances

January 28th, 2012, 07:15 PM
Hi all,

I have just installed ubuntu 11.10, but I cannot intall any paquet or upgrade my system due to a problem with totem... Here is the message :

sudo apt-get upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
totem : Depends: totem-common (= 3.0.1-0ubuntu7.1) but 3.0.1-0ubuntu5 is installed
totem-plugins : Depends: gir1.2-totem-1.0 (= 3.0.1-0ubuntu7.1) but 3.0.1-0ubuntu5 is installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.

As a consequence, I use the -f option, but I guess it is not good to use it all the time...

What can I do ?

Thank you in advance,

that is "sudo apt-get -f install" also did you "sudo apt-get update" first?

I've very recently installed 12.04LTS Beta2 and Totem would not work. However some updates came through today - I used Update Manager - and now it's working.
