Installation Error with GnuCash and Homebank in the system Owed squeeze 6.04

Asked By 40 points N/A Posted on -


When I try to install GnuCash and Homebank in my system Owed squeeze 6.04 using the center of Software the error message goes out for me:

'It is not possible to solve dependencies on bundles'

Under the details card there is a bundle they appear: python-apt

When I open the agent of bundles Synaptic shows python-apt like(as) installed and updated.

How can I know if it is a question of a conflict between bundles or what additional bundles are needed?

What must I do to solve it?

Of course these two bundles must be capable of installing and of executing on my system.

If not someone suggests a good similar bundle that it might use in its place?

I think it’s a clear sign of incompatibility. Since I didn’t understand the kind of computer you are using and or the operating system it is running on, I will simply explain below the compatible versions where the programs can be installed. First is the GnuCash. The latest stable version for this application is GnuCash 2.4.12 which includes different installer versions for various operating systems. It supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Mac OS X.

For Linux-based platforms, most of the distributions are already packed with a version of GnuCash. But most of the time it is not installed automatically during the operating system installation and may also not be the latest version. Even if it isn’t the latest release, it still is recommended to use the version that comes with your distribution. For users using Fedora, you can install GnuCash either by navigating to System, Administration, Add/Remove Software [Gnome] or from Applications, System, Software Management [KDE]. For Mandriva users, you can install GnuCash by going to the Software Management in the Mandriva Linux Control Center.

For Redhat/Centos users, they don’t have GnuCash in their repositories by default. But you can still install it using the third-party Epel repository. For more information, please visit Fedora™ | Page | Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL). And lastly for Ubuntu users, you can install GnuCash from the Software Center. To download GnuCash 2.4.12, visit GnuCash – Free Accounting Software | Download GnuCash. Download the version applicable to your operating system.

For HomeBank, you can download the latest version, HomeBank 4.5, from – Powered by cnet | HomeBank. This version works on Windows NT, Windows 98, Windows Millennium, Windows 2000, Windows 2003, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. If you have a different operating system, please visit the software’s official page to see if there is an available version for you.

 As per your problem description, I see that the issue is with unmet dependencies. 

If you get the following kind of error:

<some-package>: Depends: <other-package> (= version) but this-version is to be installed

Check if the restricted and universe repositories are enabled in the software sources.

Apart from this, whenever you hit a dependency issue, please follow the below mentioned steps to resolve the dependencies or broken packages:

Sudo apt-get clean 

Sudo apt-get autoclean

Sudo apt-get install -f

This will clean the partial installations and fix broken packages

The expected output is 

0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

Remember to perform "sudo apt-get update" finally. 

One other alternative is fix the broken dependencies via Synaptic:

Synaptic broken selection

This will display the list of broken packages if any. Select them all and upgrade them to fix the same and try to install the software.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your generous contributions and excellent description for me. Actually, I am very interested in installing the GnuCash and Homebank in my system, although my understanding on how to install it is much limited, for that reason, this error message was hanging heavy upon me.

After reading your explanations I felt more assured, I visit directly the link to download the latest steady version of this application is GnuCash 2.4.12 and for Homebank, the latest version,

HomeBank 4.5, which were compatible with my Windows 7 operating system, it is really helping me to solve this problem. Thanks guys, for perfect solutions as well as Techyv for bringing out this post.
