I need a GUI beautifier for C code. I've found UniversalIndentGUI on sourceforge. Downloaded a .deb file.Opened it with Ubuntu Software Center to install it but the button is grey and unclickable and there is a line saying

Dependency is not satisfiable: libqscintilla2-3.

I've installed via the Synaptic Package Manager libqscintilla2-5 but that didn't help. Is there any way to install the UniversalIndentGUI, the libqscintilla2-3 package or to some how work around the problem?

  • See answer below, the problem is solved.

I've installed the package "universalindentgui" with Synaptic Package Manager instead of trying to install the .deb file with Ubuntu Software Center.The Manager installed 8 other packages but I think all of them were the terminal tools used behind the GUI (such as astyle , uncrustify etc). The Manager didn't however installed a package with a similar name to "libqscintilla" or any of listed in blueXrider answer.The application seems to work fine.

  1. Sourceforge may not be the best source for this. There is a PPA for UniversalindentGUI
  2. Usually dependencies for your distribution are not being met because it was compiled for a different distro version. ie: installing something from Natty instead of Precise.
  3. Refer to the Launchpad for correct documentation HERE
  4. Prior to installation download the build dependencies stated.

Current stable version:

Build dependencies

debhelper (>= 8.0.0)
quilt (>= 0.46-7)
