xpra not installable in Ubuntu 13.04 from the winswitch repositories

Reported by: krlmlr Owned by: Antoine Martin

Component: packaging Version:
Keywords: Cc:


Trying to install xpra from the winswitch repositories (both regular and beta) on a fresh Ubuntu 13.04 x86_64 results in the following output:

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.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 xpra : Depends: libwebp2 but it is not installable
        Recommends: python-numeric but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Note that Ubuntu 13.04 contains the libwebp4 package. The python-numeric package was last included in Lynx, now it seems to be called python-numpy. The latter is a recommended package and can be worked around, but the former is a true dependency.

This is pretty much exactly the same thing that was reported yesterday on the mailing list - please see there for a more complete answer.
To get the updated packages, you may need to run:

apt-get remove xpra
apt-get autoremove
apt-get clean
apt-get update
apt-get install xpra

Thank you. Currently, I'm fine with xpra from the Ubuntu repos, so I haven't tested it. Anyway, it seems that this ticket can be closed.

As I mentioned before, no one should use the buggy and outdated version in the Ubuntu repositories.
