Issue with installation Wing IDE on kali - libpango1.0-0 dependency - libpango1.0-0 vs libpango-1.0-0 (additional '-' )

I tried to instal libpango1.0-0 but I have got (and I already have the 'libpango-1.0-0'):
Package libpango1.0-0 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
However the following packages replace it:
and when I try to instal it I get dependency problems because it wants the name without the ' - '

In any case, I suspect the solution is to force dpkg to ignore dependencies with the --ignore-dependencies flag or --force-depends although the latter might cause problems later as mentioned in https://superuser.com/questions/739274/ignore-all-dependencies-for-a-specific-package-with-apt-get
