I download the .deb 64 bit image in their homepage, untar and install. Launching the app by the icon is unsuccessful and also in terminal

/opt/XnView/XnView: error while loading shared libraries: libgstapp-0.10.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I do not want to add third-party repositories to my system like in the proposal of the thread for 14.04, since the official image must work if at all. I forwarded this thread already to the developer.

System: Ubuntu 16.04 64 bit
Hardware: Macbook Air 2013-mid
XnView: 0.81
Softwares: gstreamer

    Hey same here. I downloaded 64bit .deb file from their official website and installed via terminal. Seems like it get installed but clicking on icon doesn't do anything. I was like this is only with me. Now going for Gimp. – rainlover Nov 19 '16 at 14:18

Solution based on the German thread about the issue

sudo apt-get install libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0

Application starts successfully without apparent failures.
