Looks like it's because libglut3 was replaced by freeglut3.

I know it, i use this package. It's problem only dependence. I thing that it will be really good when somebody repair this package.

Also having the same problem, Ubuntu 11.10

Here is a patch to fix this problem. You may also have to "sudo modprobe -r gspca_kinect" or blacklist the kernel module before the libfreenect demo software will run.

ACK on the debdiff, thanks. I've slightly adjusted the changelog.

SRU request:

libglut3 isn't in the Oneiric archive, it was replaced with freeglut3. Bad dependencies in the libfreenect file prevent it from being installable in Oneiric.

The package was fixed by the debdiff in comment #7 which adjusts the dependencies to freeglut3.

Regression potential:
Since the package is currently uninstallable, there's not much potential for regressing it.

Hello Pavel, or anyone else affected,

Accepted libfreenect into oneiric-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!
