Just can't install this app on 13.04 gnome edition due to the absence of libcupsys2 packet. When trying to install it - there is dependency on libkrb53. Instead of it I have libkrb5-3, but it cannot be removed.

There is quite enough information about this issue, but I still cant find any workaround.

Get it! Libcupsys2 can be depackaged using dpkg-deb -x and in control file change dependency on libkrb53 to libkrb5-3. Make new .deb and install. – ibelevtsov Apr 30 '13 at 10:15
please,could you explain a bit better? which version of libcupsys2 do you have? where do you donwload? any repository? I need to download the correct version but I don't have the deb in my repos. Thanks – user154122 Apr 30 '13 at 15:47

Get it!

Libcupsys2 can be depackaged using dpkg-deb -x and in control Here it is. So, if you also have libkrb5-3 instead of libkrb53 needed in dependencies you do the following: dpkg-deb -x libcupsys2_1.3.7-1ubuntu3.16_i386.deb common dpkg-deb --control libcupsys2_1.3.7-1ubuntu3.16_i386.deb cd DEBIAN nano control

You need to replace libkrb53 with libkrb5-3 save and exit cd.. cp -r DEBIAN/ common/

dpkg -b common libcupsys2_1.3.7-1ubuntu3.16_i386.deb

That's all!
