I am a very new (three weeks) Ubuntu user who would like to install Gnomesword. However, I have found that I when I use Synaptic to download and install I get the following message:

Depends: libsword5c2a (>=1.5.8-7) but it is not installable

So far I haven't found anything in the Ubuntu Christian Edition forums that would help.

Has anyone encountered this before? If so, have you been able to resolve it?

Found a solution that will resolve the dependency issue here:


Then went on to install Gnomesword with Synaptic without incident.
