yesterday i started the first installation of the file server package and i have to say that this package is very nice. After installing and making the first tests, i wanted to install a new module:

the "lcdproc" addon to show system informations on a lcd display

I tried to use the APT manager, but while installing the module i get an error, that some dependencies are not installed.

Is here anyone, who have installed this package without problems and could give me some informations?

I'm not familiar with that module, but a quick look on Ubuntu Package Search (scroll down to 'search package directories' > select 'lucid' from the distro drop down and click search) shows that the dependancy the install is complaining about should be available via the universe repository (see here - note '[universe]' after the title of the package).

So to enable that repo using the commandline (probably possible via Webmin but I don't know how OTTOMH):

nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/source.list

And remove the '#' from the start of the lines that end in 'universe'; save and exit (<Ctrl><X>). Then update your package lists (apt-get update) and try again.
