root@john:~/Desktop# dpkg -i Fern-Wifi-Cracker_1.6_all.deb 
Selecting previously unselected package fern-wifi-cracker.
(Reading database ... 251856 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking fern-wifi-cracker (from Fern-Wifi-Cracker_1.6_all.deb) ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of fern-wifi-cracker:
 fern-wifi-cracker depends on aircrack-ng; however:
  Package aircrack-ng is not installed.

Anyone know how i can solve this problem please? Thanks!


You have to install aircrack-ng first from the repositories (Synaptic or Ubuntu Software Center, what you prefer). Then try to install fern-wifi-cracker again.

  • I already have aircrack-ng installed

  • what i'd do is to uninstall them completely, using Synaptic, reboot and install them again.
