How do you install on Ubuntu?  I alway get output like this:

sudo dpkg -i librepilot_16.09-0zesty1_amd64.deb

Are you running Zesty ? (librepilot_16.09-0zesty1_amd64.deb)
If yes, you will be able to install the missing dependencies but seems you are running Trusty ?.

Try using repo, as described in Download page

Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:librepilot/tools
sudo apt-get update


Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:librepilot/release
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install librepilot

Or for Next:

Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:librepilot/next
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install librepilot
