Packages from getdeb have to correspond with the release that you are running. You can just double click on the package and the install routine will start.

Try going to their sourceforge page and downloading the tar ball for it. You've downloaded a Karmic (9.10) release of Imagination. Unless you are running the RC1 of Mint 8, you have the Jaunty (9.04) version.

If your problem has been solved, PLEASE add [SOLVED] to your subject line! It helps everyone!
