    Sorry :( not working on Ubuntu 16.04

  2. Hi, just wanted to say to the above poster, Shamim:
    I recently installed 16.04 and also couldn’t get typecatcher to work.
    I was able to use the trusty “force” command to get it going…

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:andrewsomething/typecatcher
    sudo apt-get install -f typecatcher

    Hope this helps you.
