Is there any way to install "libgtk1.2" on Ubuntu 12.04, please? I try to install that in terminal :

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:adamkoczur/gtk1.2
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libgtk1.2

Output :

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package libgtk1.2
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'libgtk1.2'

any suggestion ?

libgtk1.2 is no longer supported in 12.04.

You need to install libgtk2.0 and the packages are available in repository. To install libgtk2.0 use the command

 sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0

For dependencies and other information look here

Hope this helps.
