Here is what I tried mates.
Since the libx264 dependency is too hard to trick (at least for me), I stopped trying to fool Splashtop to believe there is a shared object called libx264-120, pointingt o the libx264-123 library.
I dont garantee your computer will return safely, or that it will be the same after running these commands, proceed on your own risk:
- Code: Select all
# apt-get remove libx264-123
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following package was automatically installed and is no longer required:
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove it.
The following packages will be REMOVED:
gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly libmjpegtools-1.9 libquicktime2
libx264-123 mint-meta-codecs vlc vlc-nox vlc-plugin-notify vlc-plugin-pulse
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 10 to remove and 5 not upgraded.
After this operation, 16.9 MB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]?
dpkg -i libx264-120_0.120.2151+gita3f4407-2_amd64.deb
apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse* gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly* libquicktime2* mint-meta-codecs* vlc* vlc-nox* vlc-plugin-notify* vlc-plugin-pulse* python-keyring
dpkg -i Splashtop_Streamer_Ubuntu_v18.104.22.168_amd64.deb
The downside is the amount of packages you end up re-downloading, but aside of this, all went well
I am now trying to connect.....
