Recently (I don't don't know when, might have been after an update) the sound indicator disappeared from my panel, and I haven't been getting any sound either. I tried installing the
indicator-sound package, but all I got was this error message:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
indicator-sound: Depends: libido-0.1-0 (>= 0.1.1) but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages
Seems to be a bug, but how do I get around it? Could I install an older version of libido? If so, how do I do that?
Everything had worked fine until a couple days ago, so I'm sure that the package is the problem.
$ dpkg --get-selections | grep libido returns the following output:
Ok, that's embarassing. Yesterday I uninstalled and reinstalled the libido package half a dozen times, and the indicator-sound package kept reporting the same error. Today, however, I just installed the libido package and now the indicator-sound package installed with no errors. Maybe the system needed a reboot or something.
(Should I answer my own question or just wait for a moderator to close it?)
