Title: MEGASync installation failed due to dependency
Post by: josephgodwinke on April 26, 2017, 12:18:48 am
I am trying to install MEGASync Client -> megasync-Debian_7.0_amd64.deb but returns Dependency is not satisfiable: libcrypto++9 in terminal. I tried installing libcrypto++9 but it says it was replaced by libcrypto++9v5:i386 and libcrypto++9v5. So I installed 9v5 for amd64. I confirmed it was installed
Code: [Select]
apt-cache policy  libcrypto++9v5 it return its installed. Tried updating but no luck yet - cannot install.

Welcome aboard, josephgodwinke !

Generally speaking, when I run across situations like that, I simply haxor the .deb file, remove the dependency  from the control file, and repackage it. 

I need to run.  If you're not comfortable doing the above, I'm sure someone else will provide a more conventional solution.

Have fun !   :)

Hi josephgodwinke,

Welcome to the forums.

It would be better if you downloaded the Ubuntu .deb file for 16.04. You can get the 64bit version here
https://mega.nz/linux/MEGAsync/xUbuntu_16.04/amd64/megasync-xUbuntu_16.04_amd64.deb (https://mega.nz/linux/MEGAsync/xUbuntu_16.04/amd64/megasync-xUbuntu_16.04_amd64.deb)

or the 32bit version here
https://mega.nz/linux/MEGAsync/xUbuntu_16.04/i386/megasync-xUbuntu_16.04_i386.deb (https://mega.nz/linux/MEGAsync/xUbuntu_16.04/i386/megasync-xUbuntu_16.04_i386.deb)

Hope this helps

Regards Zeb...

Hi josephgodwinke, welcome to the Peppermint Forum  ;).  You're using the wrong .deb file.  You need to use the one for Ubuntu 16.04 not Debian 7.  Make sure you download the correct version for your machine, 32-bit or 64-bit.  If it still gives you problems. let us know and well show you how to install it from the command line.  I hope this helps - good luck  ;).

This worked! Actually All the answering posts before this one are correct @AndyInMokum (https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php?action=profile;u=21)

I guess i am mistaking peppermint for debian instead this is actually a fork of ubuntu. I am newbie Peppermint os (https://peppermintos.com/) user but I have used other linux distributions for 5 years now!
