I think that one dependency is missing - python-dbus

Asked by Mabin on 2020-11-23

Hi there.

I'm Ubuntu 20.04 user.

I needed diplaycal so I try to install it but I cannot find it with 'apt' command. So I google it and I found this. https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/focal/amd64/displaycal/3.8.5.0-1

I downloaded it and installed and ran but it showed that dbus python package isn't installed.
I found about that with apt command and I found python-dbus is exist. So I installed it and it resolved.

I think that displaycal package need to add python-dbus package.

Try:

sudo apt-get -f install

It should satisfy deps for you. I don't think this will work due to it using Python2

The package focal/amd64/displaycal/3.8.5.0-1 that you have installed is not officially published for Ubuntu focal.
displaycal was removed from the Ubuntu repositories, because it depends on the obsolete python2 packages (Python 2 EOL date Jan 1st 2020)

see https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=942988 and https://hub.displaycal.net/issue/17813/
