After opening TexStudio I got a message to update from version 2.8.4 to 2.9.4. After downloading the needed package, Ubuntu Software Center opens and it says that:

Breaks in the package texstudio-dbg dependency texstudio(=2.8.4+debian-3)

What can I do?


1st, read this:


We recommend that you first try to install TeXstudio from the repository of your distribution. Only if TeXstudio is not available there, use the following pre-packaged versions.

texstudio-dbg 2.8.4 needs texstudio 2.8.4, but you installed 2.9.4

Normally you do not need debug packages.

2nd, if you insist on 2.9.4, use the following steps:

  1. Remove the texstudio-dbg

    sudo apt-get remove texstudio-dbg
  2. Install your .deb file again:

    sudo dpkg -i texstudio_2.9.4_amd64.deb
  • Does this get rid of user settings like colour themes etc? – LondonRob Jan 16 '18 at 16:15
