#7157 closed defect (duplicate)

DEB package for Debian, is not installable.

Hi! :-)

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 The repository has an outdated version (not surprisingly for Debian), :-) and I wanted the last stable version.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: ~~~ giorgos-Wed 06/07/2016 09:53 PM~/Λήψεις>gdebi *
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done Building data structures... Done Building data structures... Done This package is uninstallable Dependency is not satisfiable: libjpeg8 (>= 8c) giorgos-Wed 06/07/2016 09:53 PM~/Λήψεις> ~~~

Well...I filed this bug report, because there's no libjpeg8, in Debian Jessie.

1) At Debian forum there's the pinning solution (in order to install the missing file from Sid), although I didn't try it:

2) What I've done, is just downloading and installing it. (From here):

After libjpeg8 installation, ScummVM installed properly.

Bye! :-) G.

This seems to be related to outdated control data for packaging so I am going to merge this into bug #7105.
