how to run a program that depends on libgstreamer-0.10 on Ubuntu 18.04

Asked by André on 2019-05-08

I need to run a program (Phooto: http://dls.photoprintit.com/download/Data/30095/hps/setup_Phooto.tgz) on Ubuntu 18.04, but it depends on libgstreamer-0.10.

Phooto is a great program to design photo books.

Installing libgstreamer-1.0 doesn't solve the problem.

I have tried to symlink those new libraries to old names, but in some step, it complains about a library that's not present in version 1.0.

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgstreamer-1.0.so.0 /usr/lib/libgstreamer-0.10.so.0
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgstapp-1.0.so.0 /usr/lib/libgstapp-0.10.so.0
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgstbase-1.0.so.0 /usr/lib/libgstbase-0.10.so.0

But then it complains about not founding this one to link:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgstinterfaces-1.0.so.0 /usr/lib/libgstinterfaces-0.10.so.0

You could try manually downloading and installing the last available package of libgstreamer-0.10 (0.10.36-1.5ubuntu1 for xenial).
Maybe that works.

Another solution would be to request from the provider of phooto to deliver a version that works with libgstreamer-1.0
