Unable to install Sonic Visualiser in Ubuntu 9.04
« on: April 25, 2009, 11:38:55 »
I have been attempting to install sonic-visualiser_1.5cc-1_i386.deb in Ubuntu 9.04 i386.  The install fails because of a missing dependency error for libxcb-xlib0.  Below is the result from my attempt to install the software package.

$ sudo gdebi sonic-visualiser_1.5cc-1_i386.deb
Reading package lists: Done
Reading state information: Done

This package is uninstallable
Dependency is not satisfiable: libxcb-xlib0

How can this dependency problem be resolved in order to install the software package?  I even located informatoin about the missing software package on launchpad at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/hardy/i386/libxcb-xlib0/1.1-1ubuntu1.  I downloaded and attempted to install libxcb-xlib0_1.1-1ubuntu1_i386.deb, but that fails too.  Below is the error output from my attempt to install libxcb-xlib0_1.1-1ubuntu1_i386.deb.

Do you want to install the software package? [y/N]:y
Selecting previously deselected package libxcb-xlib0.
(Reading database ... 165934 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking libxcb-xlib0 (from libxcb-xlib0_1.1-1ubuntu1_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of libxcb-xlib0:
 libxcb1 (1.1.93-0ubuntu3) breaks libxcb-xlib0 and is installed.

I've updated the Sonic Visualiser download page with links to newly built .deb packages (1.5cc-2) that I believe should install on both Ubuntu 8.10 and 9.04.

Note that the software build is unchanged, so if you have a 1.5cc-1 deb installed successfully already, there is no reason to upgrade it.
