I'm pretty sure you need to do a "apt-get -f update"  After initially 
loading the software, if you go directly to the "additional software" 
module on root's desktop, the error log shows those instructions, but if 
you've already done a yum update or RHN update, that little message to 
help you goes away, but the command still works.

After the "apt-get -f update", go back into "additional software" and 
try it again, should work like a charm.
