How to make apt ignore unfulfilled dependencies of installed package?
You can’t make
apt ignore dependencies, but you can create a fake
gstreamer0.10-plugins-good package which will satisfy the missing dependency. The simplest way to do this is using
sudo apt install equivs
generate a template control file
fix the package name
sed -i 's/<package name; defaults to equivs-dummy>/gstreamer0.10-plugins-good/g' gstreamer0.10-plugins-good.control
build the package
sudo dpkg -i gstreamer0.10-plugins-good_1.0_all.deb
That should satisfy the
opera package’s dependency.
You can also remove the
gstreamer0.10-plugins-good dependency of the
opera package by editing
Just open it with a text editor, search for the line
Package: opera and under it in the
Depends: line remove the offending
apt works again.
