  • Front Panel Designer will not start on Kubuntu 16.10

    I'm unable to get Front Panel Designer to start on Kubuntu 16.10 Front Panel Designer appears to be dependent on libpng12, which is a rather old version, so it fails to start. libpng16 is the current version. Anyone know a workaround? Can Front Panel Designer be recompiled so it will work with the current version of libpng?

    Thanks

    Hi Stan,

    A possible workaround would be to install libpng12.

    For 'libpng12' ubuntu suggest to install
    libpng12 from the 'xenial' repository which refers to (K)ubuntu 16.04

    This link will help with explanation:
    https://askubuntu.com/questions/840257/e-package-libpng12-0-has-no-installation-candidate-ubuntu-16-10-gnome/840268

    We will look for a better solution regarding libpng12 / libpng12 in the
    future.

    Respond back to info@frontpanelexpress.com if you have any other questions.
