The .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.
That is an interesting information. But do you know that this is a user-to-user forum? It would be much better to report this issue to IDM support by email, see top of the page.

While I will do that at some point I was more interested in protecting people from paying for something they cannot use.

Professionals don't do Windows
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.

Also, I've been a professional software developer for more than 25 years, primarily on Windows so I'm not sure what you're implying by "Professionals Don't Do Windows". Surely Professionals do whatever they are paid to do!
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 fora/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 :-)
