It seems to me that this package is only in beta stage,and synaptic package manager has problems with these;

Depends: libcdk4 (<=4.9.10) but it is not installable
Depends: libdotconf1.0 (>=1.0.13-1) but it is not installable

What Ubuntu version are you using?

Skip Synaptic Package Manager. If you're using Edgy you could try to download the debian package (.deb) from http://debian.harry-b.de/binary/  right click on the downloaded file and choose "Open with GDebi Package Installer". That'll take care of everything.

I use version 6.06.
Not sure if the program you mention is available here, or if it can be installed if not, but I'll give it a try.

As I runned GDebi cpm-0.23beta-1_i386.deb from ssh, I didn't use the graphical interface, however I suppose the functionality should be the same.
I get the following problem;

/tmp$ gdebi cpm-0.23beta-1_i386.deb
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/apt/__init__.py:17: FutureWarning: apt API not stable yet
  warnings.warn("apt API not stable yet", FutureWarning)

cpm
This program is a ncurses based console tool to manage passwords
 and store them public key encrypted in a file - even for more than one person.
 The encryption is handled via GnuPG so the programs data can be accessed via
 gpg as well, in case you want to have a look inside.
 The data is stored as as zlib compressed XML so it's even possible to reuse
 the data for some other purpose.
 This package is currently in beta stage.
 You can find more information about cpm at http://www.harry-b.de/
This package is uninstallable
Dependency is not satisfiable: libcdk4

Hmm..

Try having a look back in the package manager. See if you can uninstall 'libcdk4' from the package manager and reinstall (on demand) through the .deb with GDebi.

Ok, problem solved. The source for the dependent package was not found in my sources.list, and I needed to download that file manually first.
Thanks a lot!
