efl package error on ubuntu 14.04 [SYSTEM SPECIFIC]


I cannot install Moksha on ubuntu 14.04. It has 5 desktops; KDE, Cinnamon, Lubuntu-desktop, Xfce. Previously I had no problem installing Moksha but after installing KDE and then trying to install moksha i encountered many errors but I managed to solve them. Only this error is left out

Preparing to unpack .../efl_20150806bodhi1.15.0-1_i386.deb ...
Unpacking efl (20150806bodhi1.15.0-1) ...
dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/efl_20150806bodhi1.15.0-1_i386.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite '/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libecore.so.1', which is also in package libecore1 1.7.7-2ubuntu1
Errors were encountered while processing:
Error: Timeout was reached
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Due to this error I cant run Moksha as many packages (like edbus, ephoto, elemenatry, moksha, etc) depends on efl. Also it breaks the sudo apt-get update command. Anything to do without uninstalling other DE's? Help plz :).

You need to remove the conflicting libecore1 package from your system. This is the upstream Ubuntu package for the efls that is much older than what Bodhi provides.


At some point I'll updated the Bodhi packages so they cleanly remove these Ubuntu packages automatically.
