I'm trying to install musescore but this error comes ahead:

enter image description here

I tried sudo apt-get install -f but nothing happens. Any ideas?

Try running:

sudo apt-get clean

and then try again this command:

sudo apt-get install -f


sudo dpkg --configure -a

and finally update your packages:

sudo apt-get update

If this doesn't work I'd advise you to install synaptic package manager (it's a gui client) and it will be way easier to manually remove the broken packages.

To install synaptic just run this command:

sudo apt-get install synaptic

And it should appear on your slingshot on the system tools tab with an old weird icon.


Install them manually, that should fix it.

  • If you mean by that to install libqt4-scripttools by sudo apt-get install libqt4-scripttools, yes I have tried it and I have more broken packages and more unmet dependencies

  • for [sudo apt-get install libqt4-scripttools] unmet dependencies: libqt4-script, libqtcore4 and libqtgui. If I try to install them manually by apt-get, they are already the newest version.

  • What do you get for apt-get -f? Or by removing all packages, and reinstalling them?

  • apt-get install -f: 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 128 not upgraded. reinstall packages: problems with unmet dependencies and broken packages, again.
