On my laptop I can't find the language support icon in system setting.

I use the solution from the accepted answer in Ask Ubuntu I get the error

language-selector-gnome: Depends: language-selector-common (= 0.129) `

So I try to install language-selector-gnome in terminal with

apt-get install language-selector-gnome

I get the error

language-selector-gnome : Dependencies: language-selector-common (= 0.129)

So I try to install language-selector-common in terminal

apt-get install language-selector-common

It works fine, no error

And I return back to apt-get install language-selector-gnome,the previous error comes back again.

I don't know if I install the dependencies correctly, and how I can install language-selector-gnome to get the language support icon back.

I use Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 32bit system

And the output of the command dpkg-query -W language-selector-common

is language-selector-common 0.129.3

    Please edit your question and show us the output of dpkg-query -W language-selector-common – Gunnar Hjalmarsson Aug 20 '16 at 12:00

Version 0.129.3 is the current version in trusty-updates, while 0.129 is the version in trusty-release. This makes me believe that you previously had trusty-updates enabled, but have disabled it for some reason.

So to fix it, open Software & Updates, select the Updates tab, and enable trusty-updates. Then close the window and click the Reload button. After that you should be able to install language-selector-gnome 0.129.3.
