Priority: normal Component: Port: Linux

Version: 1.4.1-1 to 1.50
Platform: Linux - Ubuntu 12.04

Minor error when installing the new version of scummvm when you already have a previous version installed. I was using 'gdebi' to install the debian package and here is it's output.

Preparing to replace scummvm 1.4.1-1 (using .../scummvm_1.5.0-precise.1_i386.deb) ...

Uninstalling scumm then reattempting obviously allowed it to work but some may not understand the problem and not do that.

I think the problem here is that the Ubuntu packager packages ScummVM in a different way, thus upgrading ScummVM from an official Ubuntu package to our Ubuntu packages won't work.

I am so far not convinced that this is really a bug.

This is not a bug and is out of scope of ScummVM. You really need to submit this to Ubuntu package maintainers.
