I've installed a .deb package (which requires jre and I already have Oracle JDK) using the command
sudo dpkg -i packagename.deb
The app runs successfully, but there is an error message in the Ubuntu top panel that says
BrokenCount>0 which means installed packages have unmet dependencies. Until today I've been using the zipped version of that package and it was working fine. But I wanted to give the
.deb version a try and now I'm in trouble! The package is specifically looking for JRE, which I already have in JDK.
sudo apt-get check:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these. The following packages have unmet dependencies: xdman : Depends: default-jre but it is not installed or sun-java6-jre but it is not installable or sun-java7-jre but it is not installable or openjdk-6-jre but it is not installed or openjdk-7-jre but it is not installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.
I have not run
apt-get -f install because I am unsure of its result. Is it going to install another JRE? Can I fix this broken dependency issue without installing anything else?
