**Brackets installation error?


I want to install Brackets.Release.1.12.64-bit.deb in the ubuntu 18.04, but get this error:
Code:
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of brackets:
 brackets depends on libcurl3; however:
  Package libcurl3 is not installed.
In this version of ubuntu libcurl4 is installed.
I created a soft link from libcurl.so.4 to libcurl.so.3 in the /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu but got the same error, this is the libcurl link in the x86_64-linux-gnu:
Code:
# ls -al | grep libcurl
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root       16 May  8 22:17 libcurl.a -> libcurl-gnutls.a
-rw-r--r--   1 root root  1048506 May  8 22:17 libcurl-gnutls.a
-rw-r--r--   1 root root     1000 May  8 22:17 libcurl-gnutls.la
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root       23 May  8 22:17 libcurl-gnutls.so -> libcurl-gnutls.so.4.5.0

dpkg will check the package database, not the library links, to determine if a particular package is installed.

You're not the only one to have come across the issue. It looks as if it is currently unresolved but there is a potential workaround half-way down the following bug report:

Just a note that I have now installed Brackets in Mint 19 beta, based on Ubuntu 18.04, and the fix suggested by jsanta in the thread I linked to above works fine. I'll reproduce those steps here (carry out the commands from the directory where the Brackets deb is located; substitute xed with your favourite text editor).

Code:
apt install libpango1.0-0

dpkg-deb -R ./Brackets.Release.1.12.64-bit.deb Brackets

xed Brackets/DEBIAN/control (and replace libcurl3 with libcurl4)

dpkg-deb -b Brackets Brackets-fixed.deb

sudo dpkg -i Brackets-fixed.deb
