When trying to install the latest minitube-ubuntu from the ubuntu repository:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

minitube-ubuntu: Depends: libc6 (>= 2.14) but 2.17-0ubuntu5 is to be installed
                 Depends: libgcc1 (>= 1:4.1.1) but 1:4.7.3-1ubuntu1 is to be installed
                 Depends: libphonon4 (>= 4:4.2.0) but 4:4.7.0really4.6.0-0ubuntu2 is to be installed
                 Depends: libqt4-dbus (>= 4:4.5.3) but 4:4.8.4+dfsg-0ubuntu9.1 is to be installed
                 Depends: libqt4-network (>= 4:4.5.3) but 4:4.8.4+dfsg-0ubuntu9.1 is to be installed
                 Depends: libqt4-sql (>= 4:4.5.3) but 4:4.8.4+dfsg-0ubuntu9.1 is to be installed
                 Depends: libqtcore4 (>= 4:4.8.0) but 4:4.8.4+dfsg-0ubuntu9.1 is to be installed
                 Depends: libqtgui4 (>= 4:4.8.0) but 4:4.8.4+dfsg-0ubuntu9.1 is to be installed
                 Depends: libstdc++6 (>= 4.2.1) but 4.7.3-1ubuntu1 is to be installed
                 Depends: phonon-backend-gstreamer but it is not going to be installed

Seems to me that 2.17 >= 2.14, but maybe Math is different on unix-like systems? :( What can I do to resolve these dependencies?

Following a suggestion I tried to install phonon-backend-gstreamer

sudo apt-get install phonon-backend-gstreamer
[sudo] password for gilnaa:

Package phonon-backend-gstreamer is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source
E: Package 'phonon-backend-gstreamer' has no installation candidate

Do you have any PPAs enabled? –  guntbert Jul 2 '13 at 19:19
    
Yes, how do I copy the list and post it here? –  Gilad Naaman Jul 2 '13 at 19:21
    
Yes add it to your question. –  Jorge Castro Jul 2 '13 at 19:34
    
Ubuntu is having an update. When the update will finish, I'll screenshot and upload it here (from some reason, not all ppa's are listed in the /etc/apt/source.list file). –  Gilad Naaman Jul 2 '13 at 19:51
    
You will find files for additional PPAs in /etc/apt/sources.list.d, so no need for screenshots - just show us the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list and of the above mentioned directory. –  guntbert Jul 3 '13 at 16:06

1 Answer 1

When a dependency is not satisfied while attempting to install a package with apt-get, it lists the set of dependencies, including any that would be updated (it looks like you have some pending updates to install). The problem in your case is that phonon-backend-gstreamer is not going to be installed. You can run sudo apt-get install phonon-backend-gstreamer by itself, to see why it is not going to be installed.

Actually, it needn't be the gstreamer backend. Any phonon backend will do. Search, if there are others available to you. I use the vlc backend on my 12.04 install. –  soulsource Jul 6 '13 at 15:26
