I just installed linux mint debian on my laptop and then updated it only to find that I could no longer install enemy territory (it had worked before with helena) After much searching on the net I found that et (enemy territory) depends on an old library called libgtk1.2 which has been eliminated from debian testing and main as well. Ubuntu has apparently followed suit. It seems there are a LOT of other software that depends on this library not just enemy territory. Which just sucks hard (as the americans like to say). Gamely I have tried all day to find some other way of getting this lib back so i can install the game. Finally I figure out how to add the lib from lenny repository but for some reason it still doesn't work. I am about ready throw my laptop out the window, give up on technology and go and live the simple life of a buddhist monk high in the himalayas...
Why so much pain for so little gain?
Any clues how I can save the situation?
