Error Message: unmet dependencies libunity-core-6.09-9 (=7.2.2+14.04.20140714-0ununtu1) but 7.2.4+14.04.20141217-0ubuntu1 is to be installed

Removed compiz as directed by one of the answers earlier and it broke unity.

I don't have frames around firefox or any other app I can load from my desktop and I can only load apps that are on my desktop.

I tried sudo apt-get install unity and get an unmet dependencies error. The first time it listed about 12 or more items which i manually installed.

Now I only get this message.

I don't have unity back yet, but I was able to load Lubuntu-desktop, xubuntu-desktop and gnome. So at least I can get around now. However, gnome core has the same problem as unity.

I am still looking for an answer.

Thank you


run this commands

sudo apt-get clean    
sudo apt-get -f install

  • I tried the following: sudo apt-get clean sudo apt-get -f install (I just did the above ) sudo apt-get install -f sudo apt-get intstall -f -y unity sudo apt-get install --reinstall unbuntu-desktop sudo apt-get install unity and I don't remember how many others. – Buck Feb 12 '15 at 13:37
