Nitro is among one of the most popular task manager in Ubuntu. With its ability to sync with Dropbox and Ubuntu One, it gets the edge over its rival, especially when Tomboy is not sync supported any more. While trying to install Nitro task manager from Software Center in Ubuntu 13.04, you may see the Package dependencies cannot be resolved error. The full error description reads:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
nitro: Depends: python (>= 2.7.1-0ubuntu2) but 2.7.4-0ubuntu1 is to be installed
Depends: gsettings-backend but it is a virtual package
Depends: gir1.2-launchpad-integration-3.0 but it is not going to be installed
Reason for this unmet dependency lies in the obsolete libraries. Nitro, in this case, is trying to use some libraries which are obsolete and do not exist in Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail. The developers have fixed the issue and it is available in their PPA but Software Center is yet to get the updated version of Nitro.
You don’t have to wait till the time Ubuntu Software Center gets the newer version of Nitro task manager. All you have to do is to install it from PPA. Use the following commands in terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cooperjona/nitrotasks sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nitrotasks
You can delete the PPA of you want to uninstall it.
I hope it solves your problem with Package dependencies cannot be resolved and you are able to install Nitro as easily as you install Skype in Ubuntu 13.04. Questions, suggestions are welcomed.
