"Dependency is not satisfiable" error when trying to install an application
When I try to install glchess in Synaptic
I get this error
At a certain time I installed the Gnome desktop and a lot of games that came with it and then uninstalled the games. Now I want chess back. When I downloaded the deb file and tried to install it in Gdebi I got a similar error:
What should I change in repositories?
can you pastebin.com the output of `sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade` as well as `sudo apt-get install -f`
From your pastebin it looks very much like you have not got the updates repository enabled
Tick this option shown - the refresh your installation before install pyChess
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
indeed it was not checked !! (i guess i was trying to avoid the the repeated upgrade announcements). thank you. maybe question should be edited to become more inclusive and useful
by the way, may i know what image editor you used to create your illustrative image above?
sudo apt-get build-dep glchess
would that work for other programs? i got my answer for this one but now i have a similar issue with installing a dictionary (ubuntudico), which i cannot install from deb because of a similar error
It worked for me while I was having having the similar situation. Maybe it can work
for ubuntudico2 it doesn't work. for chess i already solved it as seen in another answer
