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

Adam

  • Thanks for replying, I tried this and got: ~/Downloads$ sudo apt install libwebkitgtk Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package libwebkitgtk – AdMaN May 16 at 4:24
  • 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. – Eate May 16 at 4:33
  • Thank you very much Eate, I followed those instructions and it worked. There was a dependency for libjavascriptcoregtk-1.0-0_2.4.11-4_amd64.deb which I installed in the same manner. I was then able to install Tizen Studio. The next problem is that the package manager will not load - just click and nothing happens, and trying to run Tizen Studio (Eclipse?) gives me a very long error message. I will raise another question for this. – AdMaN May 16 at 5:00
  • Hm. This might be because it was for another version, and might have broken something — it should still work, though, – Eate May 16 at 5:29
  • I'm adding this as an answer so that the question can be answered; I'd appreciate it if you marked it as accepted. Thanks! – Eate May 16 at 5:31

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
