    Question Can't run PopcornTime

    Backgroung

    I have an old x86 machine that I am trying to use as a media center using Lubuntu 17.04.

    For that effect, I downloded Popcorn-time for x86 and unzipped it.

    When running ./Popcorn-time a message showed saying:

    Code:
     ./Popcorn-Time: error while loading shared libraries: libgconf-2.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    So, like a good soldier, I find out that electron (the framework where Popcorn is built upon) requires this lib, and I install it using sudo apt-get install libgconf-2-4.

    That works and so when I try to run ./Popcorn-Time again, I get a different error:

    Code:
    ./Popcorn-Time: error while loading shared libraries: libudev.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    Doing sudo apt-get install libudev0:i386 didn't fix it, so I had to download it from a 3rd party website and install it manually.

    Problem

    After doing that I tried running ./Popcorn-Time, but it immediately crashes for no reason.

    It also created a dump file in what I assume is binary, thus being totally useless to me ...

    Question

    - How can I install popcorn time in my x86 machine ?
