That site says the packages are for sarge, so you should have no
First, the site says you need three packages from there: libgtkextra,
gpsim and ktechlab. Obviously you need all of them and I presume you
have used dpkg to install them all?
If that is so, you now want to do:
apt-get update # to get any security updates
apt-get -u -f install
which will sort out the mess. The -u option ensures that it tells you
what it is going to do before it starts deleting or overwriting stuff
you want to keep.
