jitsi installation complains about unmet dependency that apparently IS met


Jitsi install complains about missing libxss1, but libxss1 1:1.2.1-2 is currently installed. This is LinuxMint13Xfce. The Jitsi .deb file was downloaded from the main Jitsi website: https://jitsi.org/Main/Download

Any idea what's up?

Code:
# dpkg -i ./jitsi_2.2.4603.9615-1_i386.deb
Selecting previously unselected package jitsi:i386.

Are you by any chance trying this on a 64 bit version of Mint?
It seems that jitsi asks for the 32 bit version of libxss.

Ah, ... yes! Running on 64 bit. That would be it. Thanks!

(Going to go download the 64 bit version of Jitsi now - my error in the initial download)

[solved]

Yes, things run so much better when you actually try to install the correct architecture package (Jitsi) in the first place.

Thanks TobiSGD!
