libpulse0 dependency issue on Debian
Ran into some dependency issue on Debian.
Debian uses a different version scheme without the epoch entry for libpulse0:
[email protected]:~/Downloads$ sudo dpkg -i showtime_4.10.25_amd64.deb Selecting previously unselected package showtime. (Reading database ... 251570 files and directories currently installed.) Preparing to unpack showtime_4.10.25_amd64.deb ... Unpacking showtime (4.10.25) ... 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): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured Processing triggers for man-db (220.127.116.11-5) ... Processing triggers for desktop-file-utils (0.22-1) ... Processing triggers for mime-support (3.58) ... Processing triggers for hicolor-icon-theme (0.13-1) ... Errors were encountered while processing: showtime
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: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=636724

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