How to solve missing library on Ubuntu 16.04

In some cases, after trying to run some applications on Ubuntu, it requires library. Without this package, the application won’t run at all. For example, after downloading Popcorn Time and try to run it, I got the following error on my Terminal

./Popcorn-Time: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Ubuntu 16.04 does not shipped with package by default. We need to manually install the package first before attempting to reinstall the software that needs this package. Unfortunately, we cannot install using apt-get install command.

To solve this problem, first we need to download the package called libudev0_175-0ubuntu9_amd64.deb. This libudev package is available for 32 bit and 32 bit system. You can download and install this package via Terminal using the following command:

64 bit Ubuntu

32 bit Ubuntu

Once completed, you can try to reinstall the software that requires package and now it should works.
