           Summary: Gnucash installation fails (unmet dependencies)
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: gnome-desktop
        AssignedTo: seb128 at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: kenan.esau at conan.de
         QAContact: desktop-bugs at lists.ubuntu.com

I am using Breezy Badger on an i386. Installation of gnucash fails:

[speedy2:~]$ LANG=C sudo aptitude install gnucash

Some packages had unmet dependencies.  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 packages have unmet dependencies:
  gnucash: Depends: libgal23 (>= 0.24) but it is not installable
           Depends: libgdk-pixbuf-gnome2 (>= 0.22.0-8) but it is not installable
           Depends: libgtkhtml1.1-3 (>= 1.1.10) but it is not installable

There seems to be a "workaround" according to
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=97239&highlight=gnucash but doing the
installation with dpkg and enforcing everything doesn't seem to be a good
solution to me.
