I have a problem with brltty. The main problem is that it doesn't work.
I just don't get anything on my braille display. I know the display is
working because I can boot with a thumb drive and it works. I thought
I'd try uninstalling brltty and reinstalling it but when I did that, it
wanted to uninstall the mate desktop as well. In other words, if I
type, "dpkg --purge brltty', it says it says that it can't do that
because I'd have to uninstall ubuntu-mate-desktop first. If I ask it to
show me the dependencies for brltty, ubuntu-mate-desktop is not listed.
This is a fresh install of ubuntu vivid, 15.04.
Is there a way to force dpkg to recalculate it's dependencies? It has to
be that the dependency date is messed up.
