libpulse0 dependency issue on Debian

Added by Daren K about 6 years ago

[email protected]:~/Downloads$ sudo dpkg -i showtime_4.10.25_amd64.deb
Selecting previously unselected package showtime.

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of showtime:
 showtime depends on libpulse0 (>= 1:1.0); however:
  Version of libpulse0:amd64 on system is 5.0-13.

dpkg: error processing package showtime (--install):

Errors were encountered while processing:

Can you fix this?

Anyway, my current workaround is to manually edit the dependency from libpulse0 (>= 1:1.0) to libpulse0 (>= 1.0) using this script:

This is caused by the dpkg build system that automatically insert dependencies. I'll override that list manually will come up in master soonish.
