Re: [SOLVED] Bad package install help

If you really want teamviwer, I'd suggest:

sudo apt-get update

cd downloads #or wherever you save downloaded files)

sudo rm <teamviewer (if it's there)>

Try and download the teamviewer archive or package again. Make sure you download the correct package (i.e. for Debian, and for your architecture (32bit/x64 - 64bit will not work on 32bit).

cd /where you saved the file. 

dpkg -i <debfile>

Re: [SOLVED] Bad package install help

In a terminal, what do you get if you run

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

?

If you get any errors, please post them here; if you don't get errors, but Synaptic is still giving you errors, we will have narrowed our search for the problem.

Re: [SOLVED] Bad package install help

I think you must delete in the first part "teamviewer".

How do you have install it?
Is there perhaps a package

dpkg -l|fgrep teamviewer

Test to deinstall it. After that

sudo apt-get upate
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Re: [SOLVED] Bad package install help

Looks like `sudo dpkg purge teambuilder` should do it; if not, I'm sure someone with more experience with manually installed third-party packages will have more advice.

Re: [SOLVED] Bad package install help

I'd give

sudo apt-get --purge remove <package>

A shot first.  If that fails, we could always go the hardcore route.  You can CAREFULLY open '/var/lib/dpkg/status', and using your text editor of choice with SU privilages, search for any reference to the "teamviewer" package.   Remove JUST those entries.  I'd make a backup of the file first, though... you can break stuff here.
