Stefan, Hullo from Greg Bennett
I have returned to my Linux box and issued the assorted commands you so 
described below.
Now I receive --
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  texworks: Depends: libhunspell-1.1-0 (>= 1.1.6-1) but is not installable
                  Depends: libpoppler-qt4-2 (>= 0.6) but is not installable
                  Depends: libpoppler2 (>=0.0) but is not installable

I was wondering whether I have broken something, or whether I have 
failed to take precautions
before invoking the attempt to install TexWorks.

Thanks for any and all assistance
Cheers /Greg Bennett
