I just installed GitKraken (A Git GUI) by downloading it from the website. When I try to install it via 'Discover Center', it doesn't work. So I found somewhere online the command dpkg -i [filename], used it on the gitkraken .deb, andddd MAGIC! It works!

I then tried to run GitKraken (by typing in gitkraken in the terminal), and that gave me this beautiful error:

In terminal...

  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install curl libcurl3

Now your app should work.

I installed libgnome-keyring-common and libgnome-keyring-dev on ubuntu 16.04 which solved it for me:

sudo apt install libgnome-keyring-common libgnome-keyring-dev

    This works for distributions with a desktop environment not based on GNOME, such as Kubuntu. – Bruno Finger Oct 8 '18 at 8:04

    this worked for me on Kubuntu as well! Thanks! – Brock Vond Nov 3 '18 at 21:42
