(Solved) Un-met dependancies in repos

Post by Cinammon32 » Tue Feb 20, 2018 3:04 pm

I'd like to install both klinkstatus and stellarium, both in the default repositories but neither is installable without additional packages. Is there a repository I can add that will give me these?

klinkstatus : Depends: libkrossui4 (>= 4:4.3.4)
stellarium : Depends: libqt5serialport5 (>= 5.1.0)

When I do add additional repositories they are only active when I need to install something that's missing. They then get commented out so I don't mess up something else updating that shouldn't be.

Hi Cinammon32,

- How to install - Stellarium crashes on boot [Solved] - Linux Mint Forums
viewtopic.php?f=47&t=257456&hilit=stellarium


"klinkstatus" is a KDE application, are you using KDE? If not you may have to install "kde-runtime" first.


Hope this helps ...

klinkstatus - Yes, running KDE but it should have either pulled in extra packages or an apt-get -f install should have.
stellarium - won't install at all due to missing packages.

Thank you for the suggestions.

Hi Cinammon32,

You are welcome...

What version of KDE are you running, 17.x or 18.x?

I have Stellarium and Kstars working well in both my KDE systems (17.3 and 18.2).

I never used "klinkstatus" before, but it installed fine in my Linux Mint 18.2 system

Funny: Nickname is Cinnamon32, but used environment is KDE. But I wonder which Mint?

What is your version of Mint and what is the desktop environment? If you don't know open a terminal and enter:

Code: Select all

inxi -Sz
Paste the output here.

You need to give this information for every help request in every thread.
Do not forget this in the future.

Regarding stellarium: I see for the mentioned library in Mint 18.3 version 5.5.1 in the official repositories, obviously > 5.1.0. So what is the problem?

Code: Select all

genealogy-Inspiron-620 sources.list.d # inxi -Sz
System:    Host: genealogy-Inspiron-620 Kernel: 4.13.0-32-generic x86_64 (64 bit) Desktop: KDE Plasma 5.8.8
           Distro: Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia
Sorry about that. I should know better.
and right now I have no idea what's going on. Neither will install on this system because of unmet dependencies.

Just tried installing those programs on my new machine - also Mint KDE 18.3, and there is no problem??
So obviously this is machine specific. I'll have to compare sources.list on both machines . . .

Yeah, about Cinammon32 - I joined the forum after installing Cinnamon in frustration over KDE5! I LIKE KDE4, the interface is familiar and comfortable and works rationally. KDE5 feels like one step forward, two steps back and I'm still unhappy with it. Recently tried out Neon KDE and maybe, just maybe, things are getting back to usable. And really, really don't like the "new" flat look. I feel like I'm in a white room with every item of furniture, every picture frame, every decoration also white.

I'm dual booting Cinnamon and KDE now but must admit, I still spend most of my time in KDE. Habits of a lifetime maybe. I know the programs, I know (or a least knew) the options and where to find them. Lots to like about Cinnamon. It's a nice Desktop.
