How to run Total Phase Data Center on Ubuntu Linux 18.04

 On fresh install of Ubuntu Linux 18.04 you may see this message when you start the Data Center:

data center "error: unable to execute application"

This message should be in top 10 of most useful error messages.

'strace' said that the executable wanted to load libpng.so and gstreamer-0.10.so. This libraries do not exists in Ubuntu 18.04, therefore some old sources should be added to the list of APT.

# Add to /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-security main restricted
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-security universe
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-security multiverse
deb http://hu.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ xenial main restricted universe multiverse

Then install the missing libraries:

sudo apt install libpng12-0
sudo apt install libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0

After that you should be able to run Data Center.
