Topic: How to run siren under Ubuntu 18.04

Extract and double click on "siren" did nothing.
I tried install GTK2 with "sudo apt-get install GTK2.0", and reboot but that did not help either.
I love this program when I was using windows but not trying out Ubuntu and having lots of uphill climbs.

Thanks for you help in advance.

Hello John,

The issue you are facing is a library that has evolved since siren executable has been created.
To fix this we are going to download the right package, install and finally remove it.

I assume you use a 64-bit version of Ubuntu.
Open a "terminal" and type the following commands :

sudo dpkg -i libpng12-0_1.2.54-1ubuntu1.1_amd64.deb
rm libpng12-0_1.2.54-1ubuntu1.1_amd64.deb

You can now try to start siren again.

Hoping this will help.
