Installing Inkscape on Debian/Knoppix

Anyone successfully installed Inkscape-0.40 on KNOPPIX? I'm trying to solve the one last obstacle: libpango

I tried installing libpango1.0-0_1.8.0-3_i386.deb... and the system complained that:

libpango1.0-0 depends on libpango1.0-common (>=1.8.0-3); however;
Package libpango1.0-common is not configured yet.

... so I downloaded libpango1.0-common_1.8.0-3_i386.deb... and another complaint from the system:

libpango1.0-common depends on libpango1.0-0 (>=1.8.0); however;
Package libpango1.0-0 is not configured yet.

... so it sounds to me that A depends on B and B depends on A... egg first or chicken first???

BTW, how do you configure the packages?
