I tried to install logmein Hamachi for Linux but since .deb files do not work anymore, I tried to install it via the .tgz file and it seemed to work until I really got to the installation part.

When I type in:

pimmulder@PimPC:~/Desktop/logmein-hamachi-$ ./install.sh

It says:

LogMeIn Hamachi needs lsb package

Maybe someone could help me.

  • .deb not working indicates a serious problem and installing from .tgz is not likely to help. Back up, what error are you getting with the .deb ? – Panther Apr 25 '16 at 20:21
  • I'm not sure if this is related but my apache won't restart due to an lsb issue since upgrading to 16.04 – dibs Apr 25 '16 at 21:12
  • 16.04 software center has issue installing debs but manual way with dpkg -i works. Have you tried that ? – Sergiy Kolodyazhnyy Apr 25 '16 at 23:31

The newest version of Hamachi no longer requires lsb at all.

"[Hamachi] can now be installed without [the] LSB package."


You need lsb-core to solve this problem, but this package is not available to direct install on 16.04.
I had a similar problem, and i've downloaded and installed the lsb-core package for Ubuntu 14.04, and it works.

Try this:

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://cz.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu trusty main" && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install lsb-core
