Question Question about apt-get


have still another problem...

I want to install kwin-baghira (0.6a-1).deb using apt-get (locally) because I donīt have internet at home.

I used dpkg-scanpackages to create the Packages.gz file... no problems.
When I try

$ apt-get install kwin-baghira

I get the error that the package (kwin-baghira) want to install kdelibs(4.2.2..) but kdelibs(4.3.3...) installed.

I tried apt-get update but no chance to install it.

Is there a way to say the package that on the machine is a newer version of kdelibs installed.

Or is there a way to install it anyway?

Package management do knows, that kdelibs(4.3.3...) is newer than kdelibs(4.2.2..),
but maybe there is explicit dependency of that exact kdelibs on the package.

Even so, my package found from seems to depend on
kdelibs4 (>= 4:3.3.2-1)

without doing the scanpackages trick, just running
dpkg -i
apt-get -f install
afterwards should also do the trick.
