Subject Re: libmozjs-dev conflict in Karmic
Date Fri, 06 Nov 2009 12:06:45 GMT
Hi Brian,

I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 from scratch yesterday and all I did was
install couchdb from synaptic adapter. It all worked without any
problems. It installed all the necessary libraries and did not remove
my firefox installation.

have you tried sudo apt-get install couchdb?

All the best,

Fidel.
