Confirmation here. same error.

aqsis-libsc2a can't resolve libopenexr2c2a because it has been replaced by libopenexr2ldbl.
So, while waiting the package maintainer make a new DEB release, you can make your own aqsis-libsc2 DEB working by modifying the deb dependencies located in the control file of the deb archive:

1. First, Install libopenexr2ldbl:
      sudo apt-get install libopenexr2ldbl

2. Download the corrupted aqsis-libsc2 : aqsis-libsc2a_1.2.0-2_i386.deb

3. Extract the .deb:
      dpkg-deb -x ./aqsis-libsc2a_1.2.0-2_i386.deb aqsis-libsc2

4. Extract the DEBIAN files(control, postinst,...):
      dpkg-deb -e ./aqsis-libsc2a_1.2.0-2_i386.deb aqsis-libsc2/DEBIAN

5. Replace the "libopenexr2c2a" occurency by "libopenexr2ldbl" in aqsis-libsc2/DEBIAN/control (or download the attached file)
      (the libopenexr2ldbl seems to be the substitute of libopenexr2c2a in hardy H.)

6. Make your new DEB:
      fakeroot dpkg-deb -b aqsis-libsc2/ aqsis-libsc2a_1.2.0-2_i386.deb

7. Install your new DEB (eventually resolves the dependencies before):
      sudo dpkg -i ./aqsis-libsc2a_1.2.0-2_i386.deb

8. Install aqsis
      sudo apt-get install aqsis

Enjoy!

This is fixed in Intrepid.
In order for this to be fixed in Hardy, both aqsis and scons need to be SRUed. If you want, I can manage this task.

You know more about the full scope of the problem than I do so I'll leave it up to your judgment. But I think it would be nice to get Aqsis working properly in the LTS version of Ubuntu without the hoops. The SRU in this case shouldn't effect any aqsis users since it's currently not installable. Unless upgrading from Gusty to Hardy with Aqsis installed worked. Would any patches be required in scons that may effect other packages? If not then I don't see much to hold up getting approval for SRU.

I can confirm this. It would be nice if it was fixed before Intrepid. :)

I'm newbie to Linux. I can't install aqsis on Ubuntu 8.04 64-bit version as well. Need advice for workaround on 64-bit platform. Thanks.

Hope this helps, I found this on the Ubuntu French site.
They have a fixed aqsis-libsc2a deb package.

Worked great for me.

If you add up all the people who have wasted time on this bug, like me, it dwarfs the amount of time it would take to make this problem go away!

Sorry, I really don't understand the meaning of what you're saying.

I think he means: Why isn't this bug just fixed?

I did make a script to automate this task and an alternative package.

It's now 2009. Should we expect a fix for this seemingly trivial problem sometime this year?
