Assuming that by "installer" you mean dpkg, you should try to install
both packages from the SAME command:

# dpkg -i libpango1.0-0*.deb libpango-common*.deb

Or, make life easier on yourself and just use APT:

# apt-get install libpango1.0-0

which will take care of dependencies automagically for you.
