Trying to install a .deb software (its a typewriter trainer).
Getting the error:
"Dependency is not satisfiable: libqtcore4 (>= 4:4.7.0~beta1)"

Sorry that Im not explaining the context/machine info/logs - just not sure what other info is needed.

Pls help.
 


G'day @astralpr0jector :)

I'll be out for a couple of hours Saturday morning shopping and someone else may help.

But meantime
  1. What is the output in terminal of
    Code:
    apt-cache policy libqtcore4
    ? and
  2. Which Linux Mint are you using - version and desktop?
Also, be sure to run a Timeshift snapshot before you go looking for that dependency, to be sure you can rollback if something goes wrong.

Cheers

Terminal output:

libqtcore4:
Installed: (none)
Candidate: (none)
Version table:


System info;
Release Linux Mint 20.1 Ulyssa 64-bit
MATE 1.24.0
Desktop
 
Sweet, I have an Ulyana MATE in my stable, if you want to tell me the name of the typing trainer and the source for download, I can take a look at it when I get back from shopping if you like?

So there's good news and bad news.

Good news is that qstamina will install on Linux, here's a pic of mine

Bad news is that you will not be able to install it without going through a lot of hoops, nor likely will Brian @Condobloke , whom you have met.

Simple reason, your Linux is too new. More complicated than that, and I can explain on my tomorrow, but for now, if you take that command I gave you earlier, and modify it slightly to read as follows

Code:
apt-cache policy libqtcore*

... that's an asterisk instead of the 4 - I suspect you will find that yours is in the 5 series, let me know and I will cover it.
