Issue description

When installing latest stable version of synfig on (fresh) ubuntu 14.04 from .deb (downloaded from synfig site)

gDebi warns about a missing dependency = libtiff4

Workaround is to install libtiff4 which was available on 13.10 but no longer in 14.04 - where libtiff5 is installed by default - for example from Ubuntu Packages

But maybe a better solution would be to check the .deb package and see if libtiff4 is really compulsory, libtiff4 or newer, or any version of libtiff ?

The problem does not occur with ubuntu 14.04 upgraded from 13.10 as libtiff4 is already installed in that case.

Steps to reproduce this issue
Nothing entered.
