error message when trying to install application

Postby Paulgr on Sat Dec 06, 2008 3:53 pm

I tried to install mp3split-gtk from the Getdeb portal. In red letters I get the error message:
Error: Dependency is not satisfiable. libgtk2.0-0 I'm running Linux Mint Elyssa

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Either you don't have that package, or it's out of date. Looking at the page, there are links for two other packages. Download them, going from right to left.
Linux Mint 8 RC1 = Nice
'apt install' can be used on Linux Mint as a shortcut for 'sudo apt-get install'. 'apt x' can be used for various other apt commands as well.

Explain what you mean by "Either you don't have that package". When I try to install the other things that are listed I get the same error message.

Ok, you're missing the latest version of libgtk2.0-0. Here is the latest from the ubuntu repositories: http://packages.ubuntu.com/intrepid/i38 ... 0/download

EDIT: This software you want is for Intrepid/Felicia, so not sure how well it will work on Elyssa.
