nScope binary requires libpng12, which is no longer supplied by Ubuntu #31
When I upgraded my (k)ubuntu system to 16.10, and re-installed nScope, it was failing to start up with this error:
You can't install libpng12 from the ubuntu16.10 (Yakkety) repos - because libpng 1.2 is quite old and really isn't supported anymore (see http://libpng.sourceforge.net/).
The workaround is pull the old version from old builds and manually install - see eg:
nScope should be rebuilt to use libpng 1.6, which is the most up-to-date version.
