Scribus needs both libpodofo0.8.4 and libjpeg62 but libjpeg62 is over 6b-15ubuntu1.

Asked by crizorgy on 2011-09-02

I have10.04 LTS - the Lucid Lynx on an amd64.

This is the error message I receive in Synaptic:

scribus:
  Depends: libjpeg62 (>=6b1) but 6b-15ubuntu1 is to be installed
 Depends: libpodofo0.8.4 but it is not installable

If I remove my current libjpeg 62, then it will uninstall not only scribus, but every program that relies on libjpeg62 (the list is quite long).

How can I install libpodofo0.8.4 without heartache?

Chris

You have added a 3rd party source. If you remove it you can install it just fine

crizorgy (chris+connell) said : #4

WHICH is the third party source, and WHERE would I find this third-party source? HOW would I remove it?

crizorgy (chris+connell) said : #5

Thanks actionparsnip, that solved my question.

crizorgy (chris+connell) said : #6

I went to my software sources and I removed the Scribus 3rd party repository. Then Scribus installed fine. Thanks for your help. Disregard Comment #4.

Read your reply in #2 there is 1.3.3.13 from the official Ubuntu repos. You have added the scribus testing PPA yourself. Your Ubuntu version doesn't have the dependencies needed to run it. Oneiric has the deps you need but you are running Lucid.

crizorgy (chris+connell) said : #8

Yes. I have removed that repository, as indicated before. Thanks again, Actionparsnip.
