Do I have to create an Ubuntu One account to install this?


I want to install the Brackets text editor, so when I find it in the Ubuntu software manager I click on install, and it says that I need to create an Ubuntu One account in order to use Snaps. I have attached a screenshot of this message. I don't want to any more accounts, do I have to create an account with Ubuntu One?

Also, I tried doing it another way by going to the Brackets website and downloading a .deb file. After double clicking it the same Ubuntu software manager pops up, however this time when I click on install it just does nothing. I've tried over and over but it just doesn't seem to do anything. I'm used to things just working with Windows where normally I'll download an .exe and install it.

Thanks.

Have you tried, "sudo apt-get install brackets" ?

The Ubuntu Software Manager is a complete pain in this respect.

Instead of double clicking on the deb file to open it with the Ubuntu Software Manager, right-click on it and select "Open with GDebi Package Installer" (if you don't see that option, pre-install GDebi with sudo apt-get install gdebi).

Note that for Brackets, if you're on Ubuntu 16.04 or greater, you will need to pre-install libgcrypt11 as it's no longer available in the repos - you can get it from ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/mai...b7u4_amd64.deb

Is gdebi another package manager like apt and snap? This is so confusing. And I also need to install libgcrypt11? From the description it says libgcrypt11:

Quote:
"contains cryptographic functions. Many important free ciphers, hash algorithms and public key signing algorithms have been implemented
I'll assume I'll need this because Brackets isn't in the repository, as you say, well it's in the Ubuntu software centre, does that mean I'm installing an older version of Brackets?

gdebi is a program for installing *.deb packages that have been downloaded to your local computer.

Update: I just fired up my Ubuntu 16.04 VM and took a look at Synaptic. Brackets does not appear to be in the repos. There does, however, seem to be a PPA: https://launchpad.net/~webupd8team/+...buntu/brackets

Mm. I'm probably sticking my neck out, here, but isn't it rather 'jumping the gun' to automatically assume that the OP must be running a 64-bit system?

Architecture hasn't been mentioned anywhere in the original post. And some of us do still run 32-bit hardware.....or 32-bit systems on 64-bit hardware.

Good call.

For those of you with 32-bit systems, the link is ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/mai...eb7u4_i386.deb

Remember to hand crank your system up and normalise the transistor tubes first though.
