    libpng12.so.0 is missed

    I am trying to install Maya 2019. Runing comand ./setup gave me this: error while loading shared libraries: libpng12.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    Where and how to get libpng12.so.0?

    According to https://github.com/tcoopman/image-we...ader/issues/95, you can use:
    Code:
    wget -q -O /tmp/libpng12.deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/main/libp/libpng/libpng12-0_1.2.54-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb \
      && dpkg -i /tmp/libpng12.deb \
      && rm /tmp/libpng12.deb
    This code d-loads the package to the /tmp/ directory and installs it, then removes the .deb (Package)
    Let it be clear here I bare no responsibility, if this creates other problems with your OS.

    Libpng 1.2 is the version from 2016. It's pretty bad that Autodesk are putting in hard dependencies on things that old.

    You can get it from packages.ubuntu and either install it like any other package or just extract the file you need and stick it in Maya's directory.

    You might even be able to just symlink your existing libpng 1.6 to libpng12.so.0 without installing anything.

    1. Thanks, will try to download from old repositories (I am on Debian 10 - so will try to get it from jessy).
    2. I tried to create symbilic link - did not work - still wants original libpng12-0.
    3. I also found out that Autodesk requiers to have multi-network license to run Maya on Linux. This is sad evem more than issue with libpng12.
