Synaptic doesn't let me install the 'compiz' package or any related to it.

Bug #138457 reported by Vadim Peretokin on 2007-09-09
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
synaptic (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: synaptic


In a fresh install of Fiesty, I've completely removed all packages relating to Compiz, and want to reinstall again. I do have one third-party repository in my sources list (deb feisty main), but it's not checked.

The problem lies that when I select the Compiz package for installation, and it says that it needs other packages too, I cannot click on the 'Mark' button. The little window just goes out of focus, and nothing happens.

I tried this with other packages, and other seem to be working fine.

I've downloaded and installed a different package via synaptic, tried Compiz again, and this time it marked all the packages successfully. So, eh, this isn't really replicatable.
