*** SOLVED *** Installation on Ubuntu 18.04 does not work

Post by rdeanw49 » Fri Jun 08, 2018 1:26 am

Installed latest Quick and Easy Web Builder on Ubuntu 18.04 using deb file. Icon appears in applications, but clicking results in no response. Installed Microsoft Core Fonts as well as other recommended libraries for 64-bit systems. Any suggestions?

What is the error message when you try to launch the application via terminal?

Maybe this will be helpful?

Running qnewb from command line returns: ./qnewb: error while loading shared libraries: libpng12.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory. Search using Synaptic does not show any results for libpng12.so.0. Have tried all of the other posted suggestions you referred to.

You will need to install libpng12.so to make it work.

Apparently the package for libpng12.so is not available in Ubuntu 18.04. However you can get it here: https://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/i386 ... 0/download. You also will need Font Awesome which you can find here: https://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/all/ ... e/download. Be sure to get the i386 version of libpng12.so. Everything works once the above packages are installed.

Thanks,

Randy

Hi Randy!
You made my day! Just stumbled across the same problem! (Having WINE setup problems also with 18.04 ;-)
Thanks for sharing the solution!
Michael
