eidete : Depends: libgranite0 but it is not installable

Asked by Jeyanthan on 2012-07-31

After configuring PPA as mentioned in https://launchpad.net/~shnatsel/+archive/eidete-daily, I tried installing eidete and I get the following error.

===============
jeyanthan@jeyanth-T410:~$ sudo apt-get install eidete
<snip>
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 eidete : Depends: libgranite0 but it is not installable
          Recommends: contractor but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
==============

When I tried to install libgranite0, I see the package is obsolete.

===========
jeyanthan@jeyanth-T410:~$ sudo apt-get install libgranite0
<snip>
Package libgranite0 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'libgranite0' has no installation candidate
================

Can anyone help me installing it successfully ?

Google didn't help me.
FWIW, I use Ubuntu 11.10

Eidete Team,

Kindly share your views on this. I am badly looking for getting this working. Thanks in advance.

Maybe you have broken pkgs... if you have any of those libs, remove it & install again.

This ppa can provide "libgranite1" but it is no recommended -
ppa:elementary-os/daily

I think Eidete is made targeting the Elementary platform, that's why It does not work well on Ubuntu. I could not save a single recoding. All I was to able to save is 300 Bytes of .tar.gz file.

I found solution to this problem on the askubuntu.com pages. I tried the solution suggested and it worked for me. ONce you install the library, you can install Eidete without issue:

Reference link: http://askubuntu.com/questions/196875/how-do-i-build-eidete-from-source
"The problem is likely that you have an old version of libgranite. To get the latest version, you might have to add the elementary daily PPA as follows:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libgranite-dev
Alternatively, you get can the latest deb's from https://launchpad.net/~elementary-os/+archive/daily/+packages.

Please note that in that PPA there are daily builds of Eidete, so compiling from source would be unnecessary.

Also, if you'd like it to be easily removable through apt, you can nest the debian/ directory of lp:~elementary-os/eidete/deb-packaging into the root of your Eidete source directory. You can simply copy the files there once they've been branched. Also, note that the packages devscripts and dpkg-dev are needed to create Debian packages."

Can you help with this problem?
