I just tried to install Ubuntu Tweak http://ubuntu-tweak.com/ by downloading and installing the Debian package. Unfortunately I forgot to check its dependencies first, so when I ran
sudo dpkg -i ubuntu-tweak_0.8.5-1_all.deb
I recieved several errors. My terminal output is below:
"..."@"...":~/Downloads$ sudo dpkg -i ubuntu-tweak_0.8.5-1_all.deb [sudo] password for kyle: Selecting previously unselected package ubuntu-tweak.

Ubuntu Tweak now shows up in the Unity Launcher but I have been afraid to try launching it yet since I don't quite know exactly what's been done now. I am not very familiar with Ubuntu yet so I have no idea how to reverse what I did and start over.
Additionally now when I opened Ubuntu Software Centre hoping that I could find a way to remove Ubuntu Tweak I received a message warning that Items wont be able to be installed or removed until the package catalog is repaired. Not wanting to do additional damage I cancelled instead of repairing and closed Software Centre. Now I am wondering what I should do next to reverse or fix all of this and feeling a little out of my depth. Could someone please give me some advice on what I should do?
I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
