I've just installed Ubuntu 12.04 and was about to manually install Rawstudio with the packages from SourceForge repo, but I've been stuck with dependency issues and I am short on apt command lines to sort this out.

Here's the report I'v got :

I've tried "apt-get -f install" but without success. What is the mahick command line that will unblock the situation ?

Thanks
