The UEX .deb for Ubuntu 16 64-bit (probably both) does not actually install on a Ubuntu 16.04 machine. It relies on gksudo which has been deprecated for years and is now no longer supported. ... nt-find-it

If a version really does exist in the repositories, the dependency list in the .deb should give the option to install.

Ubuntu 14.04 gets its repositories officially turned off 04/01/2017.
Installed fine for me (64 bit Ubuntu 16.04 with all the latest updates). gksudo appears to be installed on my machine. Cannot comment on how it got on there though. If you want me to check anything I'd be happy to help.
Solution for uex_16.1.0.18_amd64.deb not installing on Ubuntu 16.10:

I encountered similar dependency problems when attempting to install UltraEdit:

Code: Select all
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of uex:
 uex depends on libpng12-0 (>= 1.2.13-4); however:
  Package libpng12-0 is not installed.
 uex depends on libwebkitgtk-1.0-0 (>= 1.3.10); however:
  Package libwebkitgtk-1.0-0 is not installed.

Solved as follows (found after searching Ubuntu forums):

  1. Install ibwebkitgtk-1.0-0 (I used synaptic package manager).
  2. Download and install libpng12-0_1.2.54-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb
  3. Install UltraEdit
Code: Select all
sudo dpkg -i uex_16.1.0.18_amd64.deb
sudo apt-get -f

And everything should work :-)
I got following information from IDM support about installation of UEX on Ubuntu 16.04:

IDM Computer Solutions is aware of gksudo being depreciated, and are planning to address this. There is a known issue with Ubuntu 16.04 that is preventing it from automatically installing dependencies as it installs deb packages. This is not something IDM Computer Solutions can control unfortunately. IDM Computer Solutions recommends that a user first installs package from command line using sudo dpkg -i packagname, and then use command line to detect and install missing dependencies with sudo apt-get -f install
