I would like to install the newest LMMS version to date, which is to say LMMS 0.4.13, as mentioned in the Launchpad PPA page DNS Sound (, which keeps up to date packages of a lot of awesome music software on Linux. As I'm using several of them, I added the PPA in Software Sources; it was successful but, strangly, I can't get LMMS 0.4.13 in Synaptic. I get 'lmms' version 0.4.10 and 'lmms-common' 0.4.13, which causes unresolved dependencies, as:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 lmms : Depends: lmms-common (= 0.4.10-2ubuntu1) but 0.4.13-stable.git.2225-2~precise1 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

What can I do to fix this?

I'm using a freshly updated Ubuntu, 12.04.

I've spent the better part of today looking for an answer to this, and it seems this is a build error with the DNS/Sound PPA:

I'm a linux noob so I don't know if that is helpful or where to go from here, but I too would like to know how to get the latest LMMS up and running.

How about the IRIE Shinsuke PPA? I haven't tested it, just offering it as an alternative. – Veazer May 24 '12 at 8:05
Thanks to both. Irie PPA works very well! I finally managed to get the latest LMMS version. – SyS May 26 '12 at 8:30
Seems to have been fixed now! – Max May 30 '12 at 6:49
