libboost-locale1.54-dev and libboost-filesystem1.54-dev seem to depend on different versions of libboost1.54-dev

Asked by SmashLink

I was trying to compile Blender from source.

The script for solving dependencies is trying to install libboost-locale1.54-dev and libboost-filesystem1.54-dev but they have unmet dependencies: -locale depends on libboost1.54-dev (= 1.54.0-4ubuntu3) and -filesystem depends on libboost1.54-dev (= 1.54.0-4ubuntu3.1).

Is there a way to solve this?

Elementary OS is not supported by the Ubuntu community in any way. It's support community is entirely separate from Ubuntu's. None of the "Ubuntu based" distributions are supported by the Ubuntu community.

I suggest you post on the Elementary-os forum here:

@Smashlink: You might be missing the trusty-updates/universe repository, but you should check that with elementary support.
