I am new to Ubuntu SAUCY and I must confess the transition from Windows has not been really easy for me. On Windows everything seems pretty much straight forward but I am getting frustrated because It seems when I try to install either pyproj, GDAL, Mapnik, proj4, PostgreSQL/PostGIS and other Web GIS packages they probably don't work together and their dependencies aren't the same.
My question is isn't there an easy way to get all these packages to work together?
When I install QGIS it removes something else same goes to Mapnik.
I install Mapnik the other day it even crashed and messed up my system, had to do a clean OS install all over again.
Here's the error I'm getting now:
libmapnik-dev: Depends: libmapnik (= 2.2.0-ubuntu1~saucy1) but 2.2.0-ubuntu1~saucy1 is to be installed Depends: mapnik-utils (= 2.2.0-ubuntu1~saucy1) but 2.2.0-ubuntu1~saucy1 is to be installed Depends: libpng-dev but it is a virtual package Depends: libtiff-dev but it is a virtual package Depends: libltdl7-dev but it is a virtual package Depends: libicu-dev (>= 4.2) but 188.8.131.52-12ubuntu2 is to be installed
Here is the last link(help) have have used. https://github.com/mapnik/mapnik/wiki/UbuntuInstallation
All the GIS packages I have tried installing are throwing this same error message.
I really need help on how to go about getting these installed because I can't work without all of them.
