I am unable to install eddie on Debian 11 Buster (stable), so any help will be greatly appreciated.

Toward the end of the steps, after I run:

sudo apt-get install eddie-ui

I get this:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 eddie-ui : Depends: libappindicator1 but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Running "apt-get install libappindicator1" did not do any good either, as it doesn't seem to be in the Debian Main repositories:

Package libappindicator1 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package 'libappindicator1' has no installation candidate

It is known, Debian finished a transition with Bullseye from libappindicator1 to libappindicator-ayatana which was not the case when Eddie stable was released. Eddie beta 2.21.x removed the dependency, but it's on the testing channel. Change the APT sources file (/etc/apt/sources.list.d/eddie.list, or whatever you named it) from stable to testing.
