Dependency Resolution failed

Hi All,

I am having an odd problem with “Dependency resolution failed” after I have installed the 64-bit version of both Dragon Player Version 2.0 and well as the evaluation version of Minitube 2.1.5 on my Lenovo Thinkpad X201 laptop computer, running OpenSUSE 13.1 64-bit OS and KDE 4.11.5.

When I run either Dragon Player or Minitube and search for any video or load any video file from hard disk, a window appears, which says:

Install GStreamer Resources

/usr/lib/gst-install-plugins-helper requires additional plugins to decode this file

H.264 decoder

MPEG-4 ACC decoder

The following plugins are required. Do you want to search for these now?

[Continue] [Cancel]

Then it displays:

The following packages were found

gstreamer-0_10-plugins-bad
gstreamer-0_10-plugins-bad
gstreamer-0_10-plugins-orig-addon
gstreamer-0_10-plugins-ffmpeg

When continued, it refreshes the dependencies but then shows:

Dependency resolution failed – Apper

A package dependency could not be found.
More information is available in the detailed report.

Which is as follows:

cannot install both gstreamer-0_10-plugins-bad-0.10.23-13.1.4.x86_64 and gstreamer-0_10-plugins-bad-0.10.23-13.1.4.x86_64

I have checked the gstreamer versions and they all matched the requirements.

Any ideas to try will be greatly appreciated. :wink:

Thanks,

Please follow this

Also delete the hidden folder
~/.gstreamer-0.10/

Yes, your suggestion solved the “Dependency resolution failed” issue with Apper. However, Dragon Player won’t play .avi files and neither Dragon Player, Minitube or Amarok have sound output through the sound card system of my Lenovo X201 Thinkpad laptop. I have PulseAudio enabled as well as asal. The system sound was working before I fixed the “Dependency resolution failed” issue.

Any ideas? :expressionless:

Thank you,

I don’t use Dragon Player

Check you sound device/s (you may have more than 1) In System Settings > Multimedia > Audio and Video Settings
The info you set there needs to match the device set in KMIX

Hi
Dragon Player 2.0 is from some 6 years ago…? Why not install the
version shipped with KDE 4.11.5 (as in Dragon Player version 4.11.5)?

Hi
And minitube 2.1.6 is available from;
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/multimedia:/apps/openSUSE_13.1/

???
Even KDE 4.12.2 still contains Dragon Player 2.0:

wolfi@amiga:~> dragon -v
Qt: 4.8.5
KDE: 4.12.2
Dragon Player: 2.0

Dragon Player just uses Phonon to play back files, so you might want to try the VLC backend. (install phonon-backend-vlc, and move it to the top in KDE’s Video and Audio Configuration if necessary)

But even the default gstreamer-0.10 backend should work.
Maybe try to switch all packages to the Packman versions, as described here:

Hi
Ahh ok, so it’s a KDE thing, shipping a bundle based on release
numbers, rather than product versions.

Yes, your suggestion fixed my sound problem with Dragon Player, Minitube and Amarok. However, I had to use PNMixer 0.50 to get the sound working with these applications. I would like to know if PNMixer can be use in place of KDE Mixer and will the Lenovo Thinkpad X201’s volume control buttons also work with it?

Thank you,

David A. Smith

You ThinkPad volume controls may or may not work, depending on your keyboard settings

I never had to use anything but kmix in kde
And I do feel the problem you have with kmix is just cognitive

ThinkPad’s usually depend on the kernel module thinkpad_acpi (and an ALSA sub-driver) for supporting volume control buttons. ThinkPad X201 is in the supported list on ThinkWiki: Thinkpad-acpi - ThinkWiki

If the button’s are not working you may need to report it on bugzilla (check there as a reprt may exist already). Please refer to openSUSE Wiki for info on how to do it.
