I installed Brackets on Lubuntu 13.04. When I use the command brackets to open it, I get the error: /usr/lib/brackets/Brackets: error while loading shared libraries: libudev.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory. How can I get Brackets to work?

Thank you for any help.

You can found answer on Github

Just run:

cd /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/


ln -s libudev.so.1 libudev.so.0

Now should be able to run

What you can try is to link the installed files to the ones the program is looking for:

sudo apt-get install libudev1 && cd /lib/i386-linux-gnu/ && sudo ln -s libudev.so.1 libudev.so.0
