Apt-get Installation Problem


Hello.

I posted this question a couple of days ago, but I guess nobody saw it. I do need an answer so I'm asking again.

I want to make Flash movies, so I downloaded f4l (a .deb from Sourceforge).

When trying to install the deb, apt-get said the dependencies were unavailable, so I added the following Debian repositories:

deb ftp://ftp.us.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free
deb ftp://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US stable/non-US main contrib non-free


Then apt-get said it couldn't do it because of conflicts and I should try apt-get -f install.

That brought me this:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
sudo apt-get -f install
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Correcting dependencies... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
libqt3c102-mt
Suggested packages:
libqt3c102-mt-psql libqt3c102-mt-mysql libqt3c102-mt-odbc
The following packages will be REMOVED:
f4l k3blibs kdebase-bin kdelibs-bin kdelibs4-dev kdelibs4c2 libarts1-dev
libarts1c2 libdbus-qt-1-1c2 libqt3-mt libqt3-mt-dev licq licq-plugin-qt
qt3-dev-tools
The following NEW packages will be installed:
libqt3c102-mt
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 14 to remove and 10 not upgraded.
1 not fully installed or removed.
Need to get 3045kB of archives.
After unpacking 61.4MB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]? n
Abort.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
As you can see I aborted the operation pending advice because it looks like apt-get wants to remove half the system in order to install this one program.
Aren't these things needed for other apps? Would I dare let apt-get do this?

Thank you.

I think the deb file from Soureforge will not work with Debian stable, dependecies probably require much newer packages.
Possible workarounds:
1. Upgrade your system to Debian testing. No results guaranteed however, even testing may be too old.
2. Compile it yourself and update dependecies manually, based on documentation which hopefully comes with sources.
