Angry How to ignore a dependencie when apt-getting a soft ?

Hi. I do "apt-get install monkey-bubble"

apt answers it can't get libcroco2
Logical, this paquet isn't available anymore (why ?)

But I've got libcroco3 installed and working. So how can I tell apt-get to use libcroco3 instead of libcroco2 ? I've tried apt-get --fix-missing install ... : doesn't work.

Thanks for your knowledge ;-)

Hi ya,

I didn't know Freeduc was still active -- it's been a while since the latest release. It's good to hear it's still being developed.

About your problem, did you do "apt-get update" and "apt-get upgrade" before trying to "apt-get install monkey-bubble"? If you keep apt-get up to date, there are very seldom any unresolved depends problems. Hope this helps.
