[SOLVED] broken .deb installation hinders package management; dpkg --configure -a won
I attempted to download deja vu fonts, but the installation somehow went wrong. I tried from the command line, perhaps with the wrong parameters for dpkg. I tried also synaptic, and eventually I found that the package was "broken". If I mark to uninstall it on adept manager, it suggests to uninstall so many things that I'd be left only with gnome-calculator I guess... about 90% of the installation that never depended on that font.
I think that dpkg may help, perhaps with dpkg -r ttf-dejavu or maybe --force remove-reinstreq ttf-dejavu.
But I don't know if these commands will also remove all these innocent packages that got somehow implied... :cry:
(apt-get update didn't work either; someone sugested it somewhere else).
Help will be so much appreciated! A fresh new install, so soon condemned... what a shame...
