Installing Brackets in Ubuntu 16.04

Overcoming “brackets : Depends: libgcrypt11 (>= 1.4.5) but it is not installable”

Trying to install the code editor Brackets on Ubuntu 16.04 results in the above error. Luckily though there’s an easy fix and hopefully you won’t have to spend the time I did to find it.

Terminal (command line) Instructions:

wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/279485070/libgcrypt11_1.5.3-2ubuntu4.4_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i libgcrypt11_1.5.3-2ubuntu4.4_amd64.deb
wget https://github.com/adobe/brackets/releases/download/release-1.9/Brackets.Release.1.9.64-bit.deb
sudo dpkg -i Brackets.Release.1.9.64-bit.deb

OwnCloud “You don’t have permission to upload or create files here.” – Quick Tip

You don't have permission to upload or create files here.
You don’t have permission to upload or create files here.

 

In an OwnCloud server if you change the permissions of an external drive to give r/w access (in my case chgrp www-data) and OwnCloud isn’t updating those permissions you can do this. In your MySQL database find your external storage in oc_storages and make note of the numeric id. Then run this query “Delete from oc_filecache where storage = numeric_id” replacing numeric_id with the one you found in the oc_storages table.

My Setup:
Ubuntu 14.04 Server
OwnCloud 7.0.2
MySQL 5.5.38
Apache 2.4.7
