do you want to uninstall them or fix them?

to fix them its easiest with Synaptic under the edit menu there is a Fix Broken Packages Option
just click that and the missing dependencies will be installed

or if they are unnecessary files in Konsole type sudo apt-get autoremove and type in you password when it asks for it.

Hope I have helped you.

also from the research I have done these packages arent critical for system function so you may just uninstall them if you wish.
