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.
