Unable to Install on Debian Mint: Cannot install 'gtk-sharp2'


#1

I’m far from having a pristine system, but still, the errors look so ridiculous i thought i’d share to see if anyone had any thoughts, or if these particular dependencies might go away soon.

When trying to install gtk-sharp2 directly, i get this information:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 gtk-sharp2 : Depends: libglade2.0-cil-dev (= 2.12.10-5.1) but it is not going to be installed
              Depends: libglib2.0-cil-dev (= 2.12.10-5.1) but it is not going to be installed
              Depends: libgtk2.0-cil-dev (= 2.12.10-5.1) but it is not going to be installed

Following the turtles down:

$ sudo apt-get install libglade2.0-cil-dev

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 libglade2.0-cil-dev : Depends: libgtk2.0-cil-dev (= 2.12.10-5.1) but it is not going to be installed

I know this is a bit down the chain, and not in Duplicati directly, but gtk-sharp2 seems to have some awfully precise version requirements of its dependencies. Any hope?


#2

What version of Mint is this?

Last I checked, it installed fine on Ubuntu, and AFAIK Mint shares the repos.

Maybe you have something else installed that pulls in another version of a library?


#3

I’m getting the same error…I can’t uninstall Duplicati either? Software manager doesn’t show it installed?


#4

Hi, I am running Linux mint. Libglade can be seen in Synaptic package manager.
Uninstalling Duplicati cab be done by opening the .deb package and select uninstall.
