I'm not an experienced user, so please bear with me. I've been trying to install Kompozer from two different sources, but none of them worked.
First, I downloaded a .deb file from here (https://download.cnet.com/KompoZer-for-Debian-and-Ubuntu/3000-10247_4-75219243.html), but my package installer was unable to install it. The dpkg command didn't work neither. When I run sudo dpkg -i /home/jesus/Downloads/kompozer_0.8_b3.dfsg.1-0.1ubuntu2_amd64.deb, I get the following:
(Reading database ... 255283 files and directories currently installed.) Preparing to unpack .../kompozer_0.8_b3.dfsg.1-0.1ubuntu2_amd64.deb ... Unpacking kompozer (1:0.8~b3.dfsg.1-0.1ubuntu2) over (1:0.8~b3.dfsg.1-0.1ubuntu2) ... dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of kompozer: kompozer depends on libpng12-0 (>= 1.2.13-4); however: Package libpng12-0:amd64 is not installed. dpkg: error processing package kompozer (--install): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured Processing triggers for man-db (2.8.5-2) ...

I tried to install the libpng12-0 from (https://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/amd64/libpng12-0/download); However, I got another problem:
(Reading database ... 255283 files and directories currently installed.) Preparing to unpack .../libpng12-0_1.2.54-1ubuntu1.1_amd64.deb ... Unpacking libpng12-0:amd64 (1.2.54-1ubuntu1.1) ... dpkg: error processing archive /home/jesus/Downloads/libpng12-0_1.2.54-1ubuntu1.1_amd64.deb (--install): unable to install new version of '/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpng12.so.0': No such file or directory Processing triggers for libc-bin (2.29-0ubuntu2) ... Errors were encountered while processing: /home/jesus/Downloads/libpng12-0_1.2.54-1ubuntu1.1_amd64.deb
Then, I tried this PPA (https://launchpad.net/~giuseppe-iuculano/+archive/ubuntu/ppa), but it also fails. When I type "sudo apt-get install kompozer", I get the following:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done kompozer is already the newest version (1:0.8~b3.dfsg.1-0.1ubuntu2). You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these. The following packages have unmet dependencies: kompozer : Depends: libpng12-0 (>= 1.2.13-4) but it is not installable E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
I have seen a few answers on this site to people having similar problems with the installation of Kompozer, but they didn't work for me.
Any ideas? Thanks.
