I'm trying to install Basilisk2 on 12.04. I converted the rpm from http://basilisk.cebix.net/#download to deb. Running it, however, gives me:

BasiliskII: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Any ideas?

Try this, source: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-1.2.so.0:

Download the following deb files ...

wget http://ca.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/g/gtk+1.2/libgtk1.2_1.2.10-18.1build2_i386.deb
wget http://ca.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/g/glib1.2/libglib1.2ldbl_1.2.10-19build1_i386.deb
wget http://ca.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/g/gtk+1.2/libgtk1.2-common_1.2.10-18.1build2_all.deb

You can swap out the ‘ca’ part of the url with ‘us’ or whatever your Ubuntu repository country code might be.

Now, inside the directory you downloaded them to, run

sudo dpkg -i *.deb
