Ubuntu (Pop OS 20.04) install + loading issues

My initial issue was resolved by this solution:


Then after running the final command from the above post, this is the output

(Reading database ... 319329 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to unpack pulse-fixed.deb ...

Pulse Secure is now listed as a program in my computer.  However, when trying to open, there is no response from the program (i.e. there is no GUI that appears.)


What are the next steps for opening Pulse Secure?

Probably of you do a ldd on pulseUi, you will see is not installed.

$ ldd /usr/local/pulse/pulseUi


To fix it, you just need to add Bionic Beaver (18.04 LTS) repository (or adapt to PopOS)

# add-apt-repository 'deb bionic main universe'

Then install the missing package.

# apt install -t bionic libwebkitgtk-1.0-0

Tested with Pulse Secure 9.1R4

@B-E_Susan Pulse UI will not be displayed in case of any missing dependency packages, please review @flipPipe's update, and see if that helps.
