The command

sudo apt-get install -f

should solve the dependencies by installing the additional packages. What is the result of that command?

Remark: Another way of installing Ubuntu-tweak is by adding the PPA to your list of repository sources. Then you can install Ubuntu-tweak with the standard package management programs and the dependencies will be taken care of, and you will also automatically get updates when available.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak

Thanks Manfred Hampl, that solved my question.
