Error installing Marble: dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of marble


Hello!
I'm noob in this "linux world", so sorry if I ask something obvious.

I've a Raspberry Pi 3 with Debian 8 Jessie and I'm trying to install Marble but I can't. I've this error and I don't know what to do now...

The package you are trying to install is dependent on other packages being present, which aren't. dpkg doesn't handle dependencies when installing a package.

I would suggest you install gdebi (sudo apt-get update followed by sudo apt-get install gdebi), then use it to install debs (you should then just be able to double click a deb in the GUI to install it and all its dependencies, or use sudo gdebi package.deb on the command line).

I tried with gdebi instead of dpkg. It works perfectly! I've Marble installed in my RPi.
Thanks a lot!
