Install NuSphere PHPED on Ubuntu

Download the Linux installer from the NuSphere website ( )

$ chmod a+x ./
$ ./

If you get an error similar to the following

ERROR: The installer was unable to find shared libraries which are required
in order to run PhpED.

You should have these libraries installed:
To get these libraries installed you may need to install the package which
contains them. It may be named as libstdc++2.10-2.96, compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96
or have a different name, dependant on your Linux distribution. If you will have
any problems, you may consult your Linux manual or get help from forums.

$ cd /usr/lib
$ sudo ln -s
$ sudo ln -s

cd back to where you downloaded the installer to. In my case it is as follows

$ cd ~/Desktop
$ ./

If you get another error

error while loading shared libraries:

Then install the following

$ sudo apt-get install libgtk1.2

Then go back and try the installer again.

$ ./

From here just follow the prompts and it should work fine. :yes:
