you could try to uninstall the 'wpasupplicant' package and try again to 
install dldr-wpa-supplicant.

Alternatively, you could use NetworkManager to control the wireless 
connection. This tool can be installed with the:

sudo apt-get install network-manager-gnome

command in a shell. This graphical tool supports WPA, is easy to use and 
does not require dldr-wpa-supplicant to be used.
