unmet dependendies : audacity versus gftp

I've apt-get installed audacity, and wanted to do the same with gftp.

Now, before that, I uninstalled most of KDE, and audacity was uninstalled then (wonder why?).

I tried -f install as suggested below, but then there's an error with the libartsc0...package.

apt-get -f install

Unpacking libartsc0 (from .../libartsc0_1.2.3-1_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/libartsc0_1.2.3-1_i386.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite `/usr/lib/', which is also in package libarts1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Of course now I can't upgrade gftp and can't remove gftp (for the same reason: that package).
Perhaps I could simply manually remove that error package: /var/cache/apt/archives/libartsc0_1.2.3-1_i386.deb

and try again with apt-get install gftp

Thanks in advance for your help!
