Wine Staging install problems

Post by Sheogoroth » Tue Oct 02, 2018 12:23 am

Hey everyone!

I am relatively new to Linux, and I’ve been trying to install Battlenet.

I get to this step

$ sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-staging

and it yields…

Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
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:
libsdl2-dev : Depends: libsdl2-2.0-0 (= 2.0.8+1) but 2.0.8+dfsg1-1ubuntu1.18.04.1 is to be installed
E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.

I tried…
$ sudo apt-get install libsdl2-2.0.8+dfsg1-1ubuntu1.18.04.1

but I get…

E: Unable to locate package libsdl2-2.0.08+dfsg1-1ubuntu1.18.04.1

libsdl2-dev isn't a dependency of Wine.

Did you run a

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
before installing?

and if you don't need libsdl2-dev you can remove it

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get purge libsdl2-dev
And try to install Wine again.
