i'm trying to install armory on ubuntu 12.04 but it is not working:
$ sudo dpkg -i armory_0.88.1-beta_i386.deb Selecting previously unselected package armory:i386. (Reading database ... 222699 files and directories currently installed.) Unpacking armory:i386 (from armory_0.88.1-beta_i386.deb) ... dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of armory:i386: armory:i386 depends on python-qt4. armory:i386 depends on python-twisted. armory:i386 depends on python-psutil. dpkg: error processing armory:i386 (--install): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured Processing triggers for bamfdaemon ... Rebuilding /usr/share/applications/bamf.index... Processing triggers for desktop-file-utils ... Processing triggers for gnome-menus ... Errors were encountered while processing: armory:i386
it looked like i needed to install packages
python-psutil so i did this:
$ sudo apt-get install python-qt4 python-twisted python-psutil 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: armory:i386 : Depends: python-qt4:i386 but it is not going to be installed Depends: python-twisted:i386 but it is not installable Depends: python-psutil:i386 but it is not going to be installed python-qt4 : Depends: libqtassistantclient4 (>= 4.6.3) but it is not going to be installed Depends: sip-api-8.1 python-twisted : Depends: python-twisted-conch (>= 1:11.0) but it is not going to be installed Depends: python-twisted-mail (>= 11.0) but it is not going to be installed Depends: python-twisted-lore (>= 11.0) but it is not going to be installed Depends: python-twisted-news (>= 11.0) but it is not going to be installed Depends: python-twisted-runner (>= 11.0) but it is not going to be installed Depends: python-twisted-words (>= 11.0) but it is not going to be installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
for some reason they did not want to install so i did this: (was this a bad move?)
$ sudo apt-get -f install
and after a massive amount of output in which it looked like many packages were removed??? nothing happened. armory still won't run and now i think i have screwed up some other valid packages since i have a lot of empty links with question marks on my unity bar. even the
vim configuration file seems to have been altered!
(i should also mention that i recently upgraded from ubuntu 10.04 to 12.04 and that may not have gone too smoothly for bitcoind)
