I got the following error message when trying to install Kompozer in Ubuntu 16.04.

saraswati@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install libatk1.0-0 libc6 libcairo2 libfontconfig1 libfreetype6 libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0 libglib2.0-0 libgtk2.0-0 libidl0 libnspr4 libnss3 libpango1.0-0 libpng12-0 libstdc++6 libx11-6 libxft2 libxinerama1 libxrender1 libxt6 zlib1g  
Reading package lists... Done  
Building dependency tree...
Reading state information... Done  
Package libidl0 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
  libidl-2-0:i386 libidl-2-0

E: Package 'libidl0' has no installation candidate

Please help me to sort out this problem.

Install the same packages you tried to install before except for libidl0. Open the terminal and type:

Ubuntu 16.04

sudo apt install libatk1.0-0 libc6 libcairo2 libfontconfig1 libfreetype6 libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0 libglib2.0-0 libgtk2.0-0 libnspr4 libnss3 libpango1.0-0 libstdc++-5-dev libx11-6 libxft2 libxinerama1 libxrender1 libxt6 zlib1g

Above answer for Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit no longer works. Problem on sudo dpkg -i libidl0_0.8.14-1_amd64.deb:

john@Laptop:~/Software/Kompozer$ sudo dpkg -i libidl0_0.8.14-1_amd64.deb
[sudo] password for john:

dpkg: error processing package libidl0:amd64 (--install):

Errors were encountered while processing:
 libidl0:amd64

Solved by:

sudo apt-get -f install
sudo apt-get remove libidl-2-0
sudo dpkg -i libidl0_0.8.14-1_amd64.deb

and then as before.

Problem referred to in my Comment on not working for 16.04 has been rectified in 18.04. However, on new installation of 18.04, am now getting:

john@JohnPC:~/Software/Kompozer$ sudo dpkg -i kompozer_0.8~b3.dfsg.1-0.1ubuntu2_amd64.deb

This error is rectified by:

sudo apt install libpango1.0-0

followed by:

sudo dpkg -i kompozer_0.8~b3.dfsg.1-0.1ubuntu2_amd64.deb

As of June 2020, you can install Kompozer on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (32-bit) with the following steps:

Step 1

Open a terminal and enter this command to install dependencies:

sudo apt-get install libatk1.0-0 libc6 libcairo2 libfontconfig1 \
libfreetype6 libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0 libglib2.0-0 libgtk2.0-0  libidl-2-0 \
libnspr4 libnss3 libpango1.0-0 libpng12-0 libstdc++6 libx11-6 libxft2 \
libxinerama1 libxrender1 libxt6 zlib1g

Step 2

For 32-bit systems:

wget https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archive/primary/+files/kompozer-data_0.8%7Eb3.dfsg.1-0.1ubuntu2_all.deb
wget https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archive/primary/+files/kompozer_0.8%7Eb3.dfsg.1-0.1ubuntu2_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i kompozer-data_0.8~b3.dfsg.1-0.1ubuntu2_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i kompozer_0.8~b3.dfsg.1-0.1ubuntu2_i386.deb

For 64-bit systems:

wget https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archive/primary/+files/kompozer-data_0.8%7Eb3.dfsg.1-0.1ubuntu2_all.deb
wget https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archive/primary/+files/kompozer_0.8%7Eb3.dfsg.1-0.1ubuntu2_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i kompozer-data_0.8~b3.dfsg.1-0.1ubuntu2_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i kompozer_0.8~b3.dfsg.1-0.1ubuntu2_amd64.deb

Kompozer should now be properly installed!
