I'm new to Ubuntu and this forum too, so sorry if I break any posting rules or asking a stupid question.

I'm trying to install Splashtop Streamer, on Ubuntu 14.04, However I get the following error message.

Package dependencies cannot be resolved

This error could be caused by required additional software packages which are missing or not installable. Furthermore there could be a conflict between software packages which are not allowed to be installed at the same time.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
splashtop-streamer: Depends: libx264-123 but it is not going to be installed

Can anyone help? Or recommend something to remote desktop from Android to Ubuntu 14.04

Regards Richard


There is a working solution here.

From the above link, as stated by Northreigh:

Download : libavutil51_0.8.10-1_amd64.deb

Install the downloaded deb file:

sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/lib*

Now , installing splashtop via Software Center should work.

Start splashtop via command-line as launcher icon failed to work:

python /opt/splashtop-streamer/SRStreamer.pyc
