    Hello I am a bit of a linux command line noob, I've got ubuntu 9.04 installed on a server and want to install webmin, I've downloaded the latest version but when i try to run the installer I get the following error:

    Unpacking webmin (from webmin_1.490_all.deb) ...
    dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of webmin:
     webmin depends on libnet-ssleay-perl; however:
      Package libnet-ssleay-perl is not installed.
     webmin depends on libauthen-pam-perl; however:
      Package libauthen-pam-perl is not installed.
     webmin depends on libio-pty-perl; however:
      Package libio-pty-perl is not installed.
     webmin depends on libmd5-perl; however:
      Package libmd5-perl is not installed.
    dpkg: error processing webmin (--install):
     dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    so i try:

    :~# sudo apt-get install libnet-ssleay-perl
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree... Done
    Package libnet-ssleay-perl is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package libnet-ssleay-perl has no installation candidate
    How can i get these packages?

    Thanks in advance :-]

    just run

    dpkg -i webmin_1.441_all.deb
    ( yes errors no problem ignore it)

    apt-get install -f

    and it works.

    If you have a problem with the login in firefox then change the settings like below.

    go to Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced Button -> Encryption Tab
    View Certificates -> Servers Tab
    Add Exception -> Enter "https://localhost:10000"
    Get Certificate -> Confirm Security Exception
    Click Ok.
