    Just to say “THANK YOU”, i have search all over the net after a solution to fix my broken depencies….and after tried 40 commands on my terminal (i am on Lubuntu 64-bits), and 2 hours of hell… I found your website…
    Without conviction, i have type in my term : “sudo apt-get autoremove libatk-wrapper-java”

    And it works, it solves my problem…. So thank you, because, i will not have to format, back up and restore my data, it was my last solution.
