I'm trying to install qgis-mapserver on my ubuntu 12.04. I just installed qgis desktop 2.6.0-brighton successfully. Here is my steps when installed the desktop :

sudo apt-get install python-software-properties 
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntugis/ubuntugis-unstable 
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install qgis python-qgis qgis-plugin-grass

But when I tried to install the mapserver :

sudo apt-get install qgis-mapserver libapache2-mod-fcgid

I got this error :

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
qgis-mapserver : Depends: qgis-providers (= 2.4.0-0precise2) but 2.6.0-0precise1 is to be installed
  • Using a "unstable" branch will could give you this kind of problems. I recommed you use (if you can, of course) "ppa:ubuntugis/ubuntugis-stable" as repository, instead.

The package is called "qgis-server" (no "map" part anymore) now.


sudo apt-get install qgis-server
