[lubuntu-users] Did anything change regarding libpng12.so.0?

I posted this to the FreeFileSync support forum. I thought I'd post it here
in case anyone knows something specific to Lubuntu:

--- start

I just installed Lubuntu 16.10 (64bit) and FreeFileSync now errors:

./FreeFileSync: error while loading shared libraries: libpng12.so.0: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory

I installed the latest 64-bit version
(FreeFileSync_8.5_Ubuntu_16.04_64-bit) and still get the error.

Can someone tell me how to fix this? I googled and didn't see anything
specific to FFF. I don't see anyway to install libpng.

I found libpng16.so.16.25.0. I tried creating a symbolic link named
libpng12.so.0 in the same directory (/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu). But, then
FFF errors with:

./FreeFileSync: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpng12.so.0: version `PNG12_0'
not found (required by ./FreeFileSync)

--- end
