Thread: Auto-install dependencies?

    Package(s) containing dependencies for KDE?

    Hm, I'm new to debian-based distros, and the closest thing before Ubuntu to an apt-get experience I've had is 'yum'. So is there a way on apt-get, like yum, to auto-install all dependencies? Everytime I try, it stops at failed dependencies, tells me it won't install them.

    Thanks in advance,

    Edit: And yes, I have the proper repositories checked.
    Edit#2: Dammit, the KDE package (which is the one I want installed) said 'Does not include depends for development files. Can anybody tell me what development files I need, instead of spending the next 2hours gathering individual files to satisify the dependency hell going on here? *edits title*

    After you fail to install the application, you can use:
    "apt-get -f install"

    This will automatically install all the dependencies, and also the program that you wanted to install

    You can also try apt-get build-dep [package_name], for example:
    sudo apt-get build-dep banshee
