I was trying to install Brackets on Ubuntu 16.04. It seeks the dependency on libgcrypt11. I installed that as well from the link.

Now everything is working fine. But I just wanted to know if I can change the dependency of Brackets to libgcrypt20.

  • Could you please add a little more detail? What exactly did you do, what did you want to achieve and what happened instead? Did you encounter any warning or error messages? Please reproduce them in their entirety in your question. You can select, copy and paste terminal content and most dialogue messages in Ubuntu. (see How do I ask a good question?) – David Foerster May 21 '17 at 23:38

Due to the dependency issue of libgcrypt, the solution can be found here


Brief steps:

  1. Unpack Brackets
  2. Remove the package’s dependence on libgcrypt11
  3. Copy the library into the unpacked package directory
  4. Rebuild the package
  5. Install

  • How and why are you assuming that Bracket will function exactly without gcrypt? gcrypt is required for handshaking things over the internet afaik and there should be some missing functionaliy normally. – Anwar May 22 '17 at 8:57

You can download the latest fixed Brackets .deb files from here: https://fourthfruit.github.io/fixes/ where it explains the fixed Brackets file or you may skip all of that and download it directly from here: http://mega.nz/#!U3I0gRpY!9oJQ7E6Npz-3IK3mCrf1pKxM3lKybXLUq-c6QdWTu‌​N4

  • Oops... fixing it now! – Max May 21 '17 at 23:41
  • you can go directly to it here : mega.nz/#!U3I0gRpY!9oJQ7E6Npz-3IK3mCrf1pKxM3lKybXLUq-c6QdWTuN4 but I will also be fixing the github.io page. – Max May 21 '17 at 23:42
  • You should probably disclose your affiliation with the web site linked in your answer. Posting links to affiliated sites without disclosure is considered spam on Ask Ubuntu (see askubuntu.com/help/promotion). – David Foerster May 21 '17 at 23:52
  • On the page it says that you should not talk about or use your your website too much. The only reason I put it through that site is because it explains what the file is for and such. There is no marketing or advertising involved with the site given as there is none on the site. The fourthfruit.github.io site was created purely for educational and helpful purposes to assist those requiring help with Brackets on Ubuntu 16.04+ as it is a large issue. – Max May 22 '17 at 2:05
  • I understand that but it would help to fend off trigger-happy flag raisers and reviewers if you show them that you're aware of the rules and restrictions on self-promotion. :-) (You can also delete your earlier comments once they're obsolete, e. g. if the problem was resolved and/or the info added to the parent post.) – David Foerster May 22 '17 at 4:17
