Dpkg doesnt recongize installed virtual package .

Asked by Alexandros Prekates on 2010-12-12

In my Lucid 10.04 trying to make my canon pixma 3600 work i downloaded from canon the driver which is the file:

and it contains two deb packages:
and cnijfilter-common-3.00-1.tar.gz

For cnijfilter-common holds:
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.3.4-1), libcup
sys2 (>= 1.2.1), libpopt0 (>= 1.7)

And for the installed libcups2 in lucid 10.04 holds:
Replaces: libcupsys2 (<< 1.3.7-6)
Provides: libcupsys2
Conflicts: libcupsys2 (<< 1.3.7-6)

sudo dpkg -i cnijfilter-common_3.00-1_i386.deb (translating some errors from greek)
Decompressing cnijfilter-common (από cnijfilter-common_3.00-1_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: dependencies problems prevent configuration of cnijfilter-common:
cnijfilter-common depends from libcupsys2 (>= 1.2.1). But:
Package libcupsys2 in not installed

Why is the last true since the virtual package libcupsys2 is installed?

Unfortunately a forced unstallation will block any future package installation due to unresolved dependencies that can be solved only if i remove the forced package.

-f isn't force in this case, its FIX and will pull in other debs if they are needed.

Sorry. it's fix, but when i execute that it'll prompt me to remove the halfinstalled cnijfilter-common.

Can you help with this problem?
