Cedega dependencies


Hi, i just put ubuntu in my main box (i'm trying to get into the whole linux thing) and it's been going well. i have one small problem though.

I'm trying to get Cedega up and running so i can play my games (obviously), however when i try to install it it says "Error: Dependency is not satisfyable: xlibs"

I cant quite figure this out, any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Try just forcing it, if you're using X then you should be right. If you don't have X installed then DUH! Go install it. It requires PyGTK for the Point2Play GUI but depending on the version you downloaded, everything you need may have been statically compiled in.

whoa, i should have caught on to that one anyway, so it's not your fault >_<

here's what i get from the apt-get:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Package xlibs is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
libxft1 xkeyboard-config
E: Package xlibs has no installation candidate


and from the apt-cache:

xcursor-themes - Base X cursor themes
xkeyboard-config - XKB data
xlibs-dev - X Window System client library development files transitional package
xterm - X terminal emulator
libxsharp-dev - DotGNU X11# libraries
libxsharp0 - DotGNU X11# libraries
ude - The Unix Desktop Environment
uwm - The ultimate window manager for UDE

Indeed. Not all dev packages for Dapper are already available.

xlibs-dev is still their though (sudo apt-get install xlibs-dev)

Depending on how you're trying to install Cedega you might need a lot more though.
Also see: http://wiki.winehq.org/Recommended_Packages

i had already gotten that one before posting here >_<

agh, this sucks

Edit: oh, i just saw the wiki link, i'll check it out.

Edit 2: well, i ran the script from the wiki, and it installed all those packages, but it still doesnt work, do you think it's because the specific package that i need isnt yet in Dapper?
