(this is Linux Mint 14, but I think it's still relevant here)
I've installed gnapi package from deb file. It had one dependency which wasn't met (libnautilus-extension1), but I forced installation and everything works fine.
But now when I want to install skype deb (or just launch synaptic), it displays message that system is broken. Trying to fix it the reccomended way:
sudo apt-get install -f
would result in removing gnapi, which is working fine (and I need it).
How can I fix the broken state, but keep the package?
