"Error: Dependency is not justifiable: libglib 1.2".

Hello. I am trying to istall a .deb package and i keep getting the message "Error: Dependency is not justifiable: libglib 1.2". I installed through the synaptic all the packages that are related to libglib, but i keep getting the same message. The package i am trying to install is on a cd and it is a digital dictionary (if that helps). Does anybody have a clue? Thanx guys.

Please check if the package you want to install is available by apt, yum or a synaptic repository.

If it is, but installing still doesn't work try:

(Apt example):
apt-get install *package-name* --fix-missing
Hope that helps,

Unfortunately it doesn't exist over the internet. It's something i bought from a store...

When i try to install it in a terminal i get this:

va@va-desktop:~/Desktop$ sudo dpkg -i mgde_2006_i386.deb
Selecting previously deselected package mgde.
(Reading database ... 136917 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking mgde (from mgde_2006_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of mgde:
mgde depends on libgdk-pixbuf2 (>= 0.22.0); however:
Package libgdk-pixbuf2 is not installed.
mgde depends on libglib1.2 (>= 1.2.0); however:
Package libglib1.2 is not installed.
mgde depends on libgtk1.2 (>= 1.2.10-4); however:
Package libgtk1.2 is not installed.
dpkg: error processing mgde (--install):
dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:

However, when i try to install all these "missing" packages i get the message that all of them are installed and up-to-date.

Any clues??
