Install Odesk Tracker in Ubuntu

Today, I tried to install Odesk Tracker on by Ubuntu machine but it was throwing a number of errors.

shiv@localhost:~$ sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/odeskteam_3.12.9_i386.deb

Tried to install dependencies as well but no use. Same list of errors.

After lot of search and brainstorming I was not able to find any answer and contacted Odesk Support. After couple of hours they came up a solution which not at all working out. Finally found a very simple solution, the following chain of commands and it worked:

shiv@localhost:~$ sudo apt-get clean
localhost:~$ sudo apt-get -f install
shiv@localhost:~$ sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/odeskteam_3.12.9_i386.deb

That's it.

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Enjoy Programming :)
