That dependency is only available for Quantal at the moment unless you install it from some other ppa.

Here's an x64 build for precise. And an x86 build for precise here

Launchpad has a search function

See also: What are PPAs and how do I use them? and add ppa:alex-p/notesalexp-precise to Software Sources.
