    checking for necessary dependencies

    Hi All

    I have installed Freespeak, and it just wont work. I installed it with software center, uninstalled it, installed it with synaptic, reinstalled it with synaptic. No joy. Program runs, just wont translate.

    My question is, how can I check that the necessary dependancies are installed? Could a missing depedancy cause this? I would think that installing it via synaptic and software center, that they would know what dependancies are necessary and install them automatically.

    I don't know what to think.

    Any thoughts?

    Release 12.04 (precise) 32-bit
    Kernel Linux 3.2.0-53-generic-pae
    GNOME 3.4.2

    If you installed the version in the repository (as apposed to downloading with your internet browser or something), then yes, Software Center, Synaptic, and apt-get should all install the necessary dependencies automatically.

    The package didn't get great ratings, but I don't see any reviews that say it doesn't work.

    If you want to manually check the dependencies, in a terminal, type

    apt-cache showpkg freespeak
    The description includes listed dependencies.
    Jane, stop this crazy thing!
