I am trying to install the meld diff viewer on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. When I run
sudo apt-get install meld
I get the following output:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information...

Is there something wrong with the package
libgtksourceview2.0-common? Is there a way to get a better update, or another way to get meld installed? I am uncertain how to proceed...
