I uninstalled Imagemagik from my daughters netbook in Synaptic and i noticed it listed Calibre as one of the packages to be uninstalled along with it but I went along with it because I wanted rid of Imagemagik, after uninstalling sure enough Calibre was gone so I went back into Synaptic and tried to reinstall Calibre and when I mark for installation and apply it’s listing Imagemagik as one of the packeges to be installed again.
I tried installing Calibre from the terminal but as you can see it wants to install Imagemagik
angie@angies-netbook ~ $ sudo apt-get install calibre

Any ideas how I can install calibre without Imagemagik ?
Just because it’s installed, doesn’t me you have to use it. Personally, I ignore almost all the dependencies on my computer - if I want an app, I’ll have it regardless! If I was that anal about it, I’d run Slack!
The reason I wanted to remove Imagemagik is because it’s set itself as the default viewer and I don’t like Image magik which is an overkill for viewing images anyway, so rather than try to figure how to change the default viewer I just uninstalled it
