Summary0001128: Version 2.11.22 has unmet dependencies when installed under Ubuntu 17.04 x64
DescriptionWhen I try to install 2.11.22-1 under Ubuntu 17.04 64-bit with the latest auto updates installed, pressing the "Install" button in Ubuntu Software Installer has no effect - nothing happens (not even a flickering drive light).

I then tried installing it via a dpkg command line, which reported unmet dependencies. I then ran apt --fix-broken install, and after that, DCP-o-Matic worked OK.

It looks like, therefore, the test version for Ubuntu 17.04 assumes that some libraries are installed by default that actually are not in Ubuntu 17.04 desktop. A copy-and-paste of the terminal window I used is in "additional information" below.
Steps To ReproducePerform a fresh installation of Ubuntu 17.04 deskop on a blank partition, formatted as ext3, using the downloaded ISO from Ubuntu.
Download the Ubuntu test version for Ubuntu 17.04 (dcpomatic_2.11.22-1_amd64.deb)
Enable executing this file as a program (right-click on it in Nautilus, then Properties > Permissions > check "Allow executing file as program."
Right-click on the file, and select "Open with software install."
Press "Install." Nothing will happen (or at least it didn't for me).
Open a terminal window (ctrl + alt + T)
Navigate to the window containing the DCP-o-Matic installer (.deb) file, then sudo dpkg -i dcpomatic_2.11.22-1_amd64.deb
After this gives you a bunch of unmet dependencies, enter sudo apt --fix-broken install
DCP-o-Matic should now open and work OK.

As far as I can see the dpkg -i then apt-get -f install dance is to be expected (dpkg doesn't install dependencies). The question is why the GUI installer doesn't work...
