Maya, ubuntu 19.04, the libpng12 issue and me going MAD
Hi folks, well it cant ever be easy can it? I need some help. I’m trying to install Maya on ubuntu 19.04 but i’m having a heck of a time with libpng12. I read this thread https://support.linuxhint.com/question/maya-2019-ubuntu-19-04-guide-libpng/ where they seem to figure the issue out but i’m very new to linux so im having trouble following along.
I seems 19.04 hates libpng12 with a passion, so you have to uncompress the DEB file manually, then copy it over manually to force 19.04 into submission. So, how does one manually decompress a DEB file?
