NEVER DO THAT!
See the scorp123 posts for example here
for some explanations:
you already messed with it and inserted Debian apt sources ... which is begging for problems. Debian, Ubuntu and Mint are different operating systems. Or to use a different analogy: both diesel and gasoline are used as fuel in car engines, the principle is even similar (fuel burns, produces gas ... motor moves car), and yet you can't fill gasoline into a diesel-powered car and diesel into a gasoline-powered car. If you do that your only achievement will be a horribly high bill from the mechanic who had to fix your ruined car. Same here.
Why oh why? Debian "Etch" is an entirely different distro with totally different version numbers and library versions. You don't fill gasoline into a vehicle with a diesel engine, right? And you don't fill diesel into a vehicle with a gasoline engine, right?
Never do that!! You cannot do "distro mixes" like that. Just because Mint is based on Ubuntu, and Ubuntu is based on Debian, doesn't mean that you can deliberately mix packages and repo sources.
And also nick post:
You originally had the Debian repos enabled, therefore packages were installed that are totally incompatible with the Ubuntu system.
P.S= If you had searched on the forum, you would have found the answer in 2 minutes like me. Please search before posting, it will prevent we would answer '25 times' to the same questions. No flame here just a request.
