I have some trouble at Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS - does anybody have an idea for me?

Hi @ChaotY2k ,

according to my sources, this “problem” should be fixed. That apt-get installs the necessary packages. :thinking:

An easy and quick workaround would be, to manually install the dependencies, like describted here:


#3

As OP is already using the install method, I guess something is wrong when trying to solve the dependency for whatever reason.

What happens if you apt-get install libimlib2-dev ?
If that succeeds, try again with apt-get install zammad

I keep on ignoring that your issue template is not complete.

I did a google search for you.

apt-mark showhold to check if your system holds back any affected packages (for whatever reason)
apt-get clean && apt-get update Clean the cache of apt-get and do a friendly refresh of your sources

If this still does not help, post the result of cat /etc/apt/sources.list

Please note that this is a host issue on your end which is not bound to Zammad and likely strike you on several installations with dependencies.
