First of all, I am really sorry about behaving like an over smart. But hope you will be able to help me under the circumstance I am right now.
I was having some difficulty with emacs in my Ubuntu 12.04.2 installation. So I decided to reinstall everything from scratch. The steps I took are,
sudo apt-get autoremove emacs24 cd /usr/share sudo rm -r emacs sudo rm -r emacs24
Now whenever I try to install emacs, it tells me it can't find ispell,flyspell and debian-ispell and installation not completed, dpkg error. What can I do to fix it?
(Reading database ... 292802 files and directories currently installed.) Unpacking emacs (from .../emacs_24.1+1-2~ppa1~precise1_all.deb) ... Setting up emacs23 (23.3+1-1ubuntu9.1) ... emacs-install emacs23
edit: This is the output i get, if anyone is interested
