Hmm - not using apt? Why not?

So - that's the version of gpsim that's in Dapper....

I'm not sure this'll work, but try explicitly removing gpsim with
'apt-get remove gpsim', then try the 'apt-get -f install' to fix up any
remaining damage. Also get a net connection (can you?) and apt-get
update, then apt-get install gpsim to get the Breezy version.
Also, try to work out how you've got into this state of mixing Breezy
and Dapper packages - this may not be the only problem.
