I wanted to give weechat a try on my Ubuntu 15.04 install so I downloaded a stable .deb from here (https://weechat.org/download/debian/) but I think I missed a few instructions because now everything is screwed up. Software Center keeps telling me "New software can't be installed, because there is a problem with the software currently installed. Do you want to repair this problem now?"
I tried sudo apt removing and purging weechat but I keep getting various of the following error message:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package 'weechat' is not installed, so not removed You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these: The following packages have unmet dependencies: weechat-curses : Depends: weechat-core (= 1.1.1-1) but it is not going to be installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
sudo apt-get -f install yields this error:
Unpacking weechat-core (1.1.1-1) ... dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/weechat-core_1.1.1-1_amd64.deb (--unpack): trying to overwrite '/usr/share/locale/fr/LC_MESSAGES/weechat.mo', which is also in package weechat-devel-core 1.4-1~dev20150904 dpkg- deb: error: subprocess paste was killed by signal (Broken pipe) Errors were encountered while processing: /var/cache/apt/archives/weechat- core_1.1.1-1_amd64.deb E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
I'm at my wits end. I tried install weechat core via apt to try to fix the dependency issue but nothing seems to be working. Any thoughts? I apologize for my ignorance - I've a newbie to Linux and Ubuntu and I'm mildly afraid I've borked my entire system!
