Ubuntu: Problems with kde plasma dependencies



Question:

I wanted to try kde but when I installed it I got a few errors. I didn't think much of these and loaded up kde, and all I had was a cursor and a black screen. So I try'ed to uninstall it and it threw up this error.

eelis@eelis-All-Series:~$ sudo apt-get purge plasma-desktop  Reading package lists... Done  Building dependency tree         Reading state information... Done  You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:  The following packages have unmet dependencies:   kde-config-touchpad : Depends: plasma-desktop but it is not going to be installed   kde-telepathy-minimal : Depends: kde-config-telepathy-accounts (>= 15.04.0) but it is not going to be installed  E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).  

So I run sudo apt-get -f install and I get this error.

Errors were encountered while processing:   /var/cache/apt/archives/kde-config-telepathy-accounts_15.04.1-0ubuntu1~ubuntu15.04~ppa1_amd64.deb  E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)  

Dpkg tells me kde is not installed but apt tells me it is.

It would be great if any of you could give some insight into my problem. Thanks.


Solution:1

Looks like I managed to solve my issue.

I ran:

sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports  sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get -f install  sudo apt-get autoremove  

and worked fine.
