DEB package for Debian, is not installable.
|Reported by:||SF/gk967||Owned by:||csnover|
I'm in Debian Jessie x64 KDE. The repository has an outdated version (not surprisingly for Debian), :-) and I wanted the last stable version.
Debian 8 (jessie) x86 64bit package is not usable out of the box (although I can't think a new Linux user, running Debian).
It complains that it misses libjpeg8 and aborts.
Here's my konsole output:

Well...I filed this bug report, because there's no libjpeg8, in Debian Jessie. https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=libjpeg8
1) At Debian forum there's the pinning solution (in order to install the missing file from Sid), although I didn't try it: http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=124941
2) What I've done, is just downloading and installing it. (From here): https://packages.debian.org/sid/amd64/libjpeg8/download
After libjpeg8 installation, ScummVM installed properly.
Bye! :-) G.
