You may possibly install the package from unstable. Either by downloading it from above and installing the .deb packages needed manually, or by adding the Debian unstable repository to your sources. That can be tricky, so I'd not do that unless you are sure of the approach for that (I'm not, perhaps somebody else can pitch in on that).

If you have all 4 .deb files in the same folder I believe installing them all at once would solve the dependency issue. So with:
- Code: Select all
dpkg -i *.deb
