Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

You need to post the tail of your install log for anyone here to be sure, but my first thought is that you don't have the library the install program is looking for. I'm not sure if this is the most elegant way to handle it, but when I get a failed dependency, I pull up Software Manager and search for the library name, then install the basic and development versions of the library. Some libraries have a bunch of packages for things unrelated to what you are doing. I would stick with the basic and development version of each library before trying to install any others.
If you install a new library and then when you try to configure again you get the same failed dependency, try typing "ldconfig" as root.
