Missing libpng12.so.0
« on: 2017/01/25, 19:23:23 »
To access the VDI I use at work, I am expected to use VMWare Horizont Client. It is available here. According to this article in Debian wiki it should be possible to run the client on Debian. I have downloaded the bin and run it. When I try to run the viewer, I end up with this in the shell:
Code: [Select]
usr/lib/vmware/view/bin/vmware-view: error while loading shared libraries: libpng12.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Also, I have symlinked libudev.so.0 as described in the article


Where do I find libpng12.so.0 ?

Thanks, I actually tried that without success:
Code: [Select]
root@siductionbox:~# apt-cache search libpng12-0
root@siductionbox:~# apt-get install libpng12-0
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package libpng12-0 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 

E: Package 'libpng12-0' has no installation candidate
root@siductionbox:~#

nu ja - in stable isses drin, ob es allerdings ne sonderlich clevere idee ist, dass in ein laufendes sid zu mixen - aber im allgemeinen brauchts ja nur die binaries und nicht die -dev's

Google translates this to "I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but it's not a good idea"


I'll give it a try anyway...

I don't know if I'm doing this correct. Trying to follow this instruction

searching at packages.debian.org ends up with this list
