This question already has an answer here:
When trying to install WINE (
sudo apt-get install wine) I get the following error:
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: wine : Depends: wine1.5 but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
Google does tell me that apparently this has something to to with
ia32-libs, but I cannot find out how to do to fix the dependencies or if I need to (manually?) install something else.
I have added
ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa to my repositories.
sudo apt-get install wine1.5gives me
The following packages have unmet dependencies: wine1.5 : Depends: wine1.5-i386 (= 1.5.4-0ubuntu1~ppa1~precise1+pulse17)
sudo apt-get install wine1.5-i386gives me
The following packages have unmet dependencies: wine1.5-i386:i386 : Depends: libgphoto2-2:i386 (>= 184.108.40.206) but it is not going to be installed Depends: libgphoto2-port0:i386 (>= 220.127.116.11) but it is not going to be installed Recommends: gettext:i386 but it is not going to be installed Recommends: libsane:i386 but it is not going to be installed
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
