    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:

    Follow up:

    1) Install Emerald Theme Manager
    Start Synaptic Package Manager by clicking
    System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager
    In Synaptic Package Manager
    You need linemeraldengine0->package too.
    So when you will select Emerald Theme Manager ,it will autometically select this one for installation.

    2)Go and get it
    install it by using :dpkg -i emerald-themes_0.2.1-0ubuntu1_all.deb

    3)Installing Compiz Fusion Icon
    Now that you can access Emerald Themer by clicking
    System > Preferences > Emerald Theme Manager
    and you can see themes listed, you need to change window decorators to use those themes.

    4)Now, to change the window decorator, right-click the Compiz Fusion Icon in the top-right corner of your screen (It’s the blue cube). Then choose Select Window Decorator > Emerald. Your window borders may disappear for a second, but they should come back.
