Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
openmusic : Depends: libcurl4 but it is not installable

I installed libcurl4-openssl-dev and libcurl4-gnutls-dev but OM still would not install.

What’s the correct package name for libcurl4 the various Ubuntu releases? I needed libcurl4 in the .spec file to take care of some dependency of Juce, and have OM run on Ubuntu 18.04.1

I don’t use Ubuntu myself, and have no idea why the various releases use different names for packages. Perhaps it’s stupid of me to use the latest release, ie Ubuntu 18.04.1? Would be very happy for some guidance here as to what is the right thing for Ubuntu-users, thanks.

Perhaps I should list libcurl4-openssl-dev as a dependency in the .spec file when building the package?

You could also try ‘apt-get install -f’ after the first ‘apt install OM-6.14.1.deb’ fails, to make the install complete. If the various libcurl4-** packages you have installed provides the right libs for Juce, OM should run just fine.

If it’s just name conflicts of the various libcurl4*** packages, you could also use the tar-ball, and just run OM from inside the extracted directory.

I’ve updated the various linux builds with the fixes to the global variable package.

For Ubuntu 18.04.1 i checked substituting libcurl4 with libcurl4-openssl-dev in the deps in the controlfile for dpkg. But while building this dep in turn dragged in libcurl4, so doubt this will fix the issue you’re seeing on 17.10.

Updated downloads for Linux. Only edit is incorrect version-numbers in previous files.
