I have installed Mendenley (32 bits) on a fresh Ubuntu Mate 18.04.5 LTS 32 bits, when I try to launch it by this command
mendeleydesktop , it shows me the following error message:
/usr/bin/../../opt/mendeleydesktop/bin/mendeleydesktop: error while loading shared libraries: libpng12.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
How can I solve this issue ?
It appears that the problems related to the missing “libpng12.0” file are common in some Ubuntu distros.
It has been solved simply as follow:
- Download “libpng12.0” file from this link (i.e, libpng12-0_1.2.54-1ubuntu1.1_i386.deb),
- Install it:
sudo dpkg -i libpng12-0_1.2.54-1ubuntu1.1_i386.deb
and finally Mendeley launched successfully.
