Ubuntu 22 doesn't have liblttng-ust0, it has: liblttng-ust1.

sudo apt install plasticscm-client-complete

Unfortunately, we are aware of the issues with installing Plastic SCM on Ubuntu 22. Please watch this space, we intend to resolve this soon or at least provide a workaround.

Kind Regards,

Hey ollieblanks,

Is there any update to this? I'm attempting to install it on Ubuntu 22.04 and it is showing the same problem (Depends: liblttng-ust0 but it is not installable)

So, my worry about sharing is i tried a few things and im pretty sure a couple of the things i tried helped towards getting it working, i feel like the thing that worked was, instead of `running apt-get install`. I did `apt-get download plasticscm-client-core`, then gave exec permissions and forced the install, which errored on plasticscm-client-core missing and a bunch of other things.


Then i did apt-get install -f, which it proceeded to download the missing files. I also included 18.04 URL into packages so it could get packages from 18.04.


Added video of it working.
