I needed libpng 1.2 for the driver of my old Canon printer. On Debian > Jessie it is simply no longer available, but Antix Buster provides a package, libpng12-0. However, I could not install it using sudo apt-get install libpng12-0. The problem seems the same as reported here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1136302/can-not-install-libpng12-so-0-on-ubuntu-19-04-for-packet-tracert-7, i.e. /lib/ has become a symlink to /usr/lib/. The .deb from Debian Jessie will therefore no longer work. As a work-around, I installed the .deb provided by https://askubuntu.com/questions/1136302/can-not-install-libpng12-so-0-on-ubuntu-19-04-for-packet-tracert-7 and this seems to work fine, but it would of course be best to update the repos.February 17, 2021 at 11:51 pm #54542MemberDzhigit
Hello antiX developers. I have just encountered this same issue today. Is it possible to fix the libpng12-0 package in antiX?February 18, 2021 at 3:06 am #54544Memberskidoo
This is just patched to enable installation on antiX19 (debian buster base).
A later codebase version (12.54) which probably added further CVE -related patches is available from ubuntu archive.
You application may, or might not, also require the -dev package:

Thank you! libpng12-0_1.2.54-1.0antix1_amd64.deb is working for me. I also installed libpng12-0_1.2.54-1.0antix1_i386.deb, libpng12-dev_1.2.54-1.0antix1_amd64.deb, and libpng12-dev_1.2.54-1.0antix1_i386.deb to make sure there weren’t any APT errors, but the program I was using only uses the first one. Also, if anyone else installs these, be warned that these -dev packages will cause APT to uninstall libgtk-3-dev, in case you have that installed.
