libpng12-0 install

Postby Alma110 » 2020-09-23 11:02

Hi.
I'm trying to install the "libpng12-0" library on Debian bruster 10.5 I386. Because it is a dependency of a program.
I have tried it with dede root:
Code: Select all
apt-get install libpng12-0


But it tells me that the library is not available.
I downloaded it from
Code: Select all
http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/libp/libpng/libpng12-0_1.2.50-2+deb8u3_i386.deb


and then I tried to install it with
apt install /home/Alma/libpng12-0_1.2.50-2+deb8u3_i386.deb
Code: Select all
 apt install /home/Alma/libpng12-0_1.2.50-2+deb8u3_i386.deb

here gives me the error:
E: Sub-process / usr / bin / dpkg returned an error code (1)

Some idea to install this library. :roll:

That package is for Jessie only https://packages.debian.org/jessie/libpng12-0

For Buster you will need a more up to date one.

Have you got Synaptic?

Why do you need that package? What are you trying to install?

https://www.debian.org/releases/jessie/debian-installer/

This is easily found through any search engine.

To install a file you have already downloaded, use dpkg as root.
Code: Select all
#: dpkg -i packagename.deb
where packagename.deb is the actual filename. As noted above, installing packages from earlier versions is usually not a good idea. The package for Buster is libpng16-16. That should work for the software package you want to use on Buster, and should provide the latest updates of the library. I would revert to Jessie only if the software won't run on Buster with libpng16-16.

Take my advice, I'm not using it.

Jessie also benefits from Long Term Support (LTS) until the end of June 2020.
Source - https://www.debian.org/releases/jessie/

Jessie has reached the end of its life and is no longer supported----
