Kiba Dock-Dependency Dilemma

Hi all,
I recently decided that I would try to install Kiba Dock on Mepis. I already have Beryl running nicely, and now I would like to get Kiba Dock running. Unfortunately I ran into dependency hell quickly; however, I found that I was able to fight my way through it. The problem is that I have hit a dead end. One dependency of something is libfontconfig1, which, in turn, depends on fontconfig-config. The problem is that the system will not allow me to install fontconfig-config because it would have to remove fontconfig first. There are quite a lot of programs depending on fontconfig, and Mepis will not allow me to replace fontconfig. I tried removing fontconfig with synaptic, but it would not allow me to remove it without fixing broken packages. libfontconfig1 is the broken package, and I can't fix it without removing fontconfig. Even if there is a way to remove fontconfig, I'll lose most of my software. Isn't there a solution that allows me to use Kiba Dock without removing half my software.
Any feedback would be great. Thanks
