Musescore 2.0.2 Installation in Debian 8 (jessie) 32 bit (unmet dependencies error)

• Feb 15, 2016 - 21:10

I am trying to install MuseScore on a Debian 8 computer. I followed the instructions on the install page to add the Launchpad repository to /etc/apt/sources.list with:

deb trusty main
deb-src trusty main

After updating the package lists, I tried to install MuseScore using apt-get install musescore. I got this error:

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:
musescore : Depends: libpulse0 (>= 1:0.99.1) but 5.0-13 is to be installed
Depends: qtbase-abi-5-3-0

libpulse0 is already installed on my system, and qtbase-abi-5-3-0 is a virtual package. Any ideas on how to fix this?


I've just figured out how to install musescore 2.0.2 in debian jessie stable. You need to use the jessie backports repository.
Add this lines to your source.list:
deb jessie-backports main contrib non-free
deb-src jessie-backports main contrib non-free
#apt update
#apt-get -t jessie-backports install musescore
and voilá. You get it. I tried with another mirrors but for some reason the package didn't appear,so use to be sure it will be found.

For debian stretch,just change jessie-backports for stretch-backports in the sources.list and the installation command,just as in my previous message. For spanish lyrics with accents like áéíóú is mandatory: the appimage version have issues with that.
