Ubuntu – How to install libwebkitgtk-1.0-0 on Ubuntu 19.04

19.04dependenciespackage-managementsoftware installation

My main goal is to install Tizen Studio IDE so I can learn Tizen development, and I want to do this on Ubuntu.

I have downloaded web-ide_Tizen_Studio_3.2_ubuntu-64.bin and make it executable, and can run this (after a long struggle to install the JDK, but thats another question for another time). But when I do, it says that i have not installed the prerequisites, and I must do the following:

sudo apt-get install libwebkitgtk-1.0-0
sudo apt-get install rpm2cpio

The rmp2cpio package seemed to install, but not the libwenkitgtk-1.0-0. It gives me the error:

~/Downloads$ sudo apt-get install libwebkitgtk-1.0-0
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done Package libwebkitgtk-1.0-0 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 'libwebkitgtk-1.0-0' has no installation candidate

I have tried searching for a package but it looks like there is not one available (only for older versions of ubuntu) but there must be some way I can force it or even install the version for Ubuntu 18.04 or 18.10?

Thank you

Based on this, it seems to only be available for up to 18.10. I would suggest to download the .deb file from the PPA here, by expanding version 2.4.11-4 of webkitgtk for Cosmic (18.10), and downloading libwebkitgtk-1.0-0_2.4.11-4.deb for the correct architecture. Then, use sudo dpkg -i libwebkitgtk-1.0-0_2.4.11-4_<your architecture>.deb. You may also need to install dependencies with sudo apt install -f.

Edit: As @fkraiem said, installing 18.04 will also solve your problems, and I personally recommend using the LTS versions unless you really want the latest version.

Install 18.04... – fkraiem
