Hey All, I want to use ubuntu as a complete desktop replacement; however I am unable to do this without the newest rdesktop client. I can not get it installed for the life of me. It keeps telling me it can't find my openssl directory even though the package manager states that openssl is installed. I read through a few posts I found on google and it seems that people there got it installed by installing libssl-dev.. however when I try to install libssl-dev it tells me that its missing zlib1g-dev which is not installable. I have tried to get zlib1g-dev installed every which way but its just not working and I am just about fed up. error msgs: The following packages have unmet dependencies: libssl-dev: Depends: zlib1g-dev but it is not installable E: Broken packages [email protected]:~/temp$ and trying an apt-get install zlib1g-dev Package zlib1g-dev is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package zlib1g-dev has no installation candidate [email protected]:/$ any help would be appreciated.
