Unable to install essential software

Hi everyone! I was hoping someone could give me a hand with this. I've been trying to install Kit Scenarist, a screenplay writing software that is essential to me for work.

I'm on a fresh install of Zorin OS 16.2 and everything is up to date.

Even downloading the packages from the software's official website gives me a similar error, saying that the packages have unmet dependencies.

I've been following the Ubuntu 22.04 installing guides, since it's my understanding that's what this version of Zorin's based on.

I've tried a couple solutions found online but so far none of them has worked, every time I end up with some sort of version of the same error related to this package: qtbase-abi-5-11-3

Has any of you ever tried installing this particular software on your Zorin machine? I'd appreciate any kind of help. Thanks.

do this:

sudo apt --fix-broken install

Let us know the results.

Zorin is based on 20.04 not 22.04 that may be the cause of your issue.

They have instructions for 20.04 as well as an AppImage here

If you use the AppImage version I personally think AppImageLauncher makes them a more enjoyable experience. It will integrate it into the system after you launch an AppImage

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:appimagelauncher-team/stable
sudo apt update
sudo apt install appimagelauncher

Hey, thanks for the clarification. I followed the 20.04 guidelines and it is now correctly installed.
