Install Brackets on Kubuntu/Ubuntu


I tried to install Adobe Brackets on Kubuntu 15 but sadly I couldn’t do it directly. The problem was an old and obsolete dependency called libgcrypt11. The “solution” for this is for Adobe to update the .deb package but obviously this is not an acceptable solution, for us users. What you can do is install the obsolete libgcrypt11. For this you should:

  • Download the libcrypt11 library from here.
  • Install the package using QApt Package Installer (right click on the downloaded file and Open With QApt Packakge Installer) or from command line using: sudo dpkg -i libgcrypt11_1.5.3-2ubuntu4.2_amd64.deb
  • Install Brackets .deb the same way as above.
