When a user adds a "whack-a-mole" program like minitube in to UberStudent, it really isn't something I can devote a lot of time to supporting, given the nature of the program.
Still, I installed it just as you did--and the list of dependencies you gave is correct, according to the package's control file--and it runs just fine. However, it won't communicate with YouTube.

This is almost certainly related to a change Google made in its api, and such changes are not always well documented. This is something you'll need to take up with Minitube's developer
. I'm guessing he is already well aware of the issue but that fixing it may take some time.
