Unmet dependencies during Installation

If "apt-get install pipelight" fails because of unmet dependencies than this may have two reasons:

* You did not add Erich E. Hoovers compholio PPA. You need to execute

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ehoover/compholio
sudo apt-get update

to resolve this issue. Please note that this step is no longer required, when you're using the new ppa:pipelight/stable , which combines both wine-compholio and pipelight.

* You have mingw32 installed, which conflicts with the mingw64 dependencies. We are using mingw64 because it can create 32 bit and 64 executables. If you execute

sudo apt-get install pipelight g++-mingw-w64-i686 gcc-mingw-w64-i686 binutils-mingw-w64-i686

pipelight should install without problems, but your mingw32 installation will be removed.

If this does not solve your problem, please add a bug report with the apt-get output.
