When I try to install scope-contacts-google and unity-scope-spotify, it says that is misses

gir1.2-dee-0.5 for google

gir1.2-unity-4.0 and gir1.2-dee-0.5 for spotify.

When I try to install these missing packages, it tells me I have a newer version installed. What's wrong, and what do I do?

What is the version of your Ubuntu? Developers must upgrade their application – atareao Apr 15 '12 at 6:56
Ah, sorry, I forgot to specify. I'm running the Presice beta. – Mr Greeb Apr 15 '12 at 17:13


For this the dependency package gir1.2-dee-0.5 is already available in Ubuntu Precise and Oneiric.


For this dependency package gir1.2-dee-0.5 is present in precise, but gir1.2-unity-4.0 isn't present because precise contains Unity 5.10

Instead package gir1.2-unity-5.0 is present in Ubuntu Precise.

It would be good to ask the scope developers to update their scopes to use the latest packages as dependencies

+1. Just that gir1.2-dee-1.0 replaced gir1.2-dee-0.5 in 12.04 and gir1.2-unity-5.0 replaced gir1.2-unity-4.0. – jokerdino Apr 15 '12 at 10:06
Looks I need to do an update again :) – Manish Sinha Apr 15 '12 at 10:17
