Ubuntu 12.04 how to install Celtx

Asked by Jeramy Skinner on 2012-08-20

I am running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on a Dell Latitude D610. I am trying to install Celtx. I found a .deb package at http://mirrors.dotsrc.org/mirrors/pub/getdeb/ubuntu/pool/apps/celtx/celtx_2.9.1-1~. I right clicked it and hit install with Ubuntu Software Center. It came back dependency error missing libhunspell-1.2-0. I went to synaptic and did a search. I have libhunspell-1.3.2-4 already installed. Apparently 1.2-0 has been deleted from the repository. So repository has deleted this package and Celtx does not recognize the upgrade. Any suggestions?

Have you tried running:

sudo apt-get -f install

Just run:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dreamstudio/video
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install celtx

And it will install. It is VERY rare to manually download deb files and install them in Ubuntu.

Thank you, this solved it. I didn't know there was a ppa.

ALWAYS ALWAYS try and find a PPA first:
