Install Errors - iptvx - Open Source IPTV Player


I am trying to install the above program located at:

Web Site
I am using Mint 18.3 - New install on a Gateway Laptop. The file on the download page I used was the Ubuntu 16.04 64 Bit file

Download Page
I used the install manager within Mint and it installed fine but it stated two libraries were missing...

As such the program is not fully installed as I cannot see the actual icon or program in the list.

I would very very appreciate someone assisting me installing the above program so I may be able to use or advise otherwise.

Did you check to see if that software is available in your OS repository?
You mentioned Gateway laptop, how old is this? Can you post output of "uname -a"

Which two libraries?

I don't have Mint, but it's based on Ubuntu, so this will probably work:

sudo apt-get install kodi kodi-pvr-iptvsimple
I haven't used kodi, but that should install it and the iptv plugin.
