• Impossible update for dependencies issues with lightdm-webkit2-greeter


    Today I happen to upgrade the system by yakuake, but I got the following error and can’t update anything.
    On pamac the same, at pc switch on there were over 60 updates available.
    It’s italian but I suppose very easy to understand.

    //:: Aggiornamento del sistema in corso...
    risoluzione delle dipendenze in corso...
    ricerca dei pacchetti in conflitto in corso...
    errore: impossibile eseguire l'operazione richiesta (impossibile soddisfare le dipendenze)
    :: lightdm-webkit2-greeter: l'installazione di webkit2gtk (2.12.0-2) interrompe la dipendenza 'webkit2gtk<2.12'
    :: lightdm-webkit2-greeter: l'installazione di gtk3 (3.20.2-1) interrompe la dipendenza 'gtk3<3.20'```
    

    Any suggestion?

  • Same here, but XFCE install. Here’s what I get:

    could not satisfy dependencies:
    light-locker-settings: requires python-gobject<3.20
    lightdm-webkit2-greeter: requires webkit2gtk<2.12
    lightdm-webkit2-greeter: requires gtk3<3.20

    Any help will be appreciated. And shouldn’t the update manager handle these problems automatically?

    Thanks.

  • @Jeffrey-Needle yes, me on kde

  • Well it seems lightdm needs somewhere an old package version. But why? Also i dont want to switch to gdm on gnome. Because i did this last week. And because of it my system did not start anymore. Could never get into the loginscreen.

  • Don’t do this, ldm broke.
    If you want to upgrade the other packages before the dependencies are fixed, you can use the --ignore options for the three packages in question.

  • Same here, antergos gnome, we I get upgrade with pacman -Syu, light-locker just break here.

  • I have the same pacman error message… any help will be appreciated…


    Fer

  • error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
    :: light-locker-settings: installing python-gobject (3.20.0-1) breaks dependency ‘python-gobject<3.20’

    ditto ^^ will install other packages with --ignore

  • Same problem here, can’t update anything even on Live DVD.

    Edit: Switching to gdm and removing lightdm is a workaround.

  • same here on antergos gnome :(

  • also I have the same problem when trying to update the system

  • subscribing and awaiting further instructions.

    Yeah, i thought it odd to suddenly have 129 packages in my upgrade queue ;)

  • I have the same problem as well, I’m on gnome using gdm and even when I try to uninstall lightdm (which I should have done before), it crashes too.

  • Same problem here on XFCE. I unticked all and then installed all the updates that worked and now Package Manager and Update Manager crashes. I have tried through terminal with same issues on remaining updates having dependency issues.

  • @pedro.a.1smr it lets me install gdm; but systemctl enable gdm crashes
    ideas?

  • same here on antergos gnome

  • same here with example

    Error

    Failed to prepare transaction

    could not satisfy dependencies:
    light-locker-settings: requires python-gobject<3.20
    lightdm-webkit2-greeter: requires webkit2gtk<2.12
    lightdm-webkit2-greeter: requires gtk3<3.20

    **How to fix in layman terms? thanks in advance!

  • I suppose it’s a problem developers can easily solve. Just need to wait and let them know, and @Wyn already did it ;)
