    Default Kdelibs-dev, kdelibs4-dev broken packages

    Hi everyone,
    I was trying to compile Kontroller Lab and got the following error when running the ./configure script

    checking for KDE... configure: error:
    in the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE headers installed. This will fail.
    So, check this please and use another prefix!
    I figured it was because i didn't have the dev tools so i tried to install kdelibs-dev from the repositories and got the following broken package error.

    apt-get install kdelibs-dev
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Note, selecting kdelibs4-dev instead of kdelibs-dev
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
    the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
    that package should be filed.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
      kdelibs4-dev: Depends: kdelibs4c2a (= 4:3.5.10-0ubuntu6.2) but 4:3.5.100~0ubuntu1 is to be installed
                    Depends: libarts1-dev (>= 1.5.0) but it is not going to be installed
    E: Broken packages
    I also tried installing kdelibs4-dev and got a similar error. I'm not sure if installing kdelibs5-dev is a good idea because afaik it's for KDE4. If I try to do that, it tries to install lots of dependencies and I have a feeling I'll break things.

    Note: I've found a .deb for Kontroller Lab but still think it would be very helpful to be able to compile KDE apps.

    Well I don't know why you are trying to install kde4 packages when BT4 uses kde3.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    I solved by problem by this way:

    1st removed some packages that was causing dependencis
    apt-get remove "pack"

    them I used:
    aptitude install ...
    instead of
    apt-get instal ...
    hope it will work for you 2

    I treid the ubucleaner but before that the pakages weren't broken but I tried it anyways. I did try the aptitude install instead of apt-get install and that worked for me to.
    root@bt~# aptitude install kdelibs4-dev
    I didn't even have to "apt-get remove pakage", and to my surpize it started to work. So thank you Malko, for the grate advice.

    UPDATE: This can mess up your installation. I don't cry to get help but it was funny to see my Box get screwed up. I wouldn't recomend this unless you just like fooling around like I do. It still does work but it messed up my Konsole and other things. I had to reinstall BackTrack, wich was plainless for me but I do not recomend. The reason I needed this dependency was because of eye candy, and it was something to do. I wanted to install a theme manager, and it needed this dependency. But with that said risk this if you don't mind messing up your BackTrack box.
