GNUStep terminal.app conflicts with xfce4-terminal
I wanted to try out the latest GNUStep and then possibly etoile which looks quite interesting. However trying to install GNUStep I encountered a conflict I couldn't resolve so far.
Unpacking terminal.app (from .../terminal.app_0.9.4+cvs20051125-2_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/terminal.app_0.9.4+cvs20051125-2_i386.deb (--install):
trying to overwrite `/usr/bin/Terminal', which is also in package xfce4-terminal
Errors were encountered while processing:
This terminal.app is one of GNUStep's dependencies and xfce4-terminal is apparently one of xfce dependencies because in Ubuntu the xfce-desktop meta package seems to depend on everything it installs.
I tried removing xfce4-terminal, but due to above it wants to remove the whole xfce-desktop. I also deleted the /usr/bin/Terminal (since it's actually just a link), but that didn't help. I suppose dpkg still sees it in the xfce4-terminal package itself and doesn't let it slip through anyhow.
I tried the
apt-get -f install but that isn't of much help either.
It's not like GNUStep is the most important thing in the world right now, but since others may have this problem and it'd be nice to actually be able to install something when you want to without hitting these sorts of snags, it'd be nice to resolve this.
