trouble with re-install onto Linux Mint-15 Cinnamon

(start laughing)
I shot myself during an 'apt-get' and a large number of package were removed automatically.
Now I'm trying to recover. I'd become complacent and did not have a backup.
(end laughing)

Before my mis-adventure, I had callibra v2.7.5 installed and running on Mint-15 Cinnamon and I was very happy with the workings. Can someone help me sort out all of this and get a useful install.
[PS/ I'm really looking forward to 'calligra-author'...]

When I try to install 'calligra' from the Mint-15 repositories, 'synaptic' reports that the package is broken.
'apt-get install' reports that calligra depends on 'kexi' and 'krita' (>=1:2.6.3...).

If I unravel all of that and add-apt-repository according to any of several articles that I find online,
I still cannot get an install. Again, there is some issue with 'kexi' and 'krita'.

If I try to install either 'kexi' or 'krita' separately, I get complains about 'calligra-libs' (=1:2.7.5).
It I try 'calligra-libs separately, that won't work either.

Thanks in advance,

Can you please provide a list of the repositories you have added to your system?
The following command should provide that information:
Code: Select all
cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/* /etc/apt/sources.list

Also, please make sure you have refreshed the repository data after adding a new repository. This can be done by running:
Code: Select all
apt-get update

It seems that Mint-15 repositories have the 2.6.3 editions of calligra parts.
Other KDE apps like 'k3b', 'okular', 'kate', all installed and run just fine. I don't know enough about running
KDE parts on Mint-15 with Cinnamon to know if some other KDE something has dropped a spanner into my springenwerks.

Thanks, again,

Can you please provide the full output from apt when it complains of broken packages?

Trying to install 'calligra', there was a complaint about dependency on 'kexi' and 'krita'.
I tried to install 'krita' and was told there was dependency on 'calligra-libs'.
I installed 'calligra-libs' without any messages, and tried again to install 'krita'.
Next I was told of dependency on 'krita-data'.
Following is the log from my attempt to install 'krita-data'. Notice that 'calligra-libs' gets
removed if I complete the install processing.
Code: Select all
prompt$ sudo apt-get install krita-data

The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:

Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.

Need to get 18.3 MB of archives.
After this operation, 45.5 MB of additional disk space will be used.

Abort.

This is typical of the sort of circular dependency troubles that I face.

Thanks, again,

It is likely that the packaging structure has changed - which is why it wants to remove calligra-data and calligra-libs. Have you installed the "krita" package?
