Not a week ago the official release of Ubuntu 15.04 and we already have a big bug in the distribution. Although this big mistake has easy fix and for what it is, it is possibly temporary. Apparently the new version of Ubuntu has removed a library from its repositories which makes programs used like Spotify or Brackets unable to work.
If you have upgraded, Spotify or Brackets, as well as other programs that use this library will still work, but if you do a clean install, you will have this problem.
The library in question is libgcrypt11 which is no longer in the Ubuntu 15.04 repositories, The nearest library would be libgcrypt20, so when installing the programs that use it, the installation will work but the program will not work.
It is necessary to use libgcrypt11 from previous versions to correct the problem
However, the solution to this problem is quite simple: install the library ourselves. Currently versions prior to Viviu Vervet have libgcrypt11 so we either download and install it or use a repository other than Canonical to install this library. What’s more, there is currently a version for 32 bits, per 64 bits and another multiplatform which we may well use. After that, Spotify, Brackets and other programs that use libgcrypt11 will be able to work.
While the problem is nonsense it is a serious mistake as there are many who use programs that work with the libgcrypt11 library, however, its solution is very easy even for novices; but these kinds of problems are appearing quite a bit in Ubuntu and its derivatives. Not long ago, in the latest LTS version of Ubuntu appeared a style error in the Lubuntu taste. While it is already fixed, the problem persisted long enough to become a nuisance. Maybe these issues are what Mark Shuttleworth saw as making Ubuntu not a rolling release or maybe not, but I have to admit that the Ubuntu community is doing a great job as their reports and solutions are fast and effective. , perhaps because of this, Ubuntu has over 25 million users.
