Ubuntu – E: Package ‘libpng12-0’ has no installation candidate [ubuntu 16.10 Gnome]


I tried to install WPS Office on my laptop (ubuntu 16.10 Gnome, 64 bit) with Gdebi installer but it said

Dependency is not satisfiable: libpng12-0

Then I tried to open this library as follows

sudo apt-get install libpng12-0

But I encountered an error:

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

Can anyone help? Thanks a lot

You can download the libpng12-0 package from here:

I had the same dependency problem. But downloading and installing fix edthe error. Ubuntu 16.10 killed these libs jeje.
