Dear Dr. Peeters,

I am trying to install Cadabra 2.x on Ubuntu 16.04 which is running inside the Windows 10 using VirtualBox. I installed Cadabra 1.39 first successfully but during the installation of Cadabra 2.x I receive the following error. It's about dependencies but I checked these packages and all of them are installed.

As the package name indicates, it is meant to be installed on Ubuntu Trusty, that is, 14.04, not 16.04. I have simply not yet had the time to make a package for 16.04 yet.

Thanks for reply. You are right. I didn't aware of the incompatibility.
