For aptitude, is there an equivalence to
# apt-get install -f

What is it that you need to force?

 -f means --fix-broken

That's what I meant... :D  (Force a broken install to go thru.)

well, last time i tried aptitude install -f did not work to solve deluge

So, aptitude *does* have a "fix".

dependencies (the package from its website) but apt-get install -f does.

aptitude and apt-get are not the same. Thus, one may succeed where the other fails.

Hence question asked.

Since you know that aptitude has a "-f", you asked the wrong question. The correct question should have been:

  Why does 'apt-get -f' work, but 'aptitude -f' does not?
