Hi, having trouble with installing php7.2-gd on Ubuntu 17.10, I am trying to run

sudo apt-get install php7.2-gd

on my localhost and I’m getting such error and I’m stuck with it;

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 php7.2-gd : Depends: libjpeg62-turbo (>= 1.3.1) but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Did anyone got the same issue and kindly let me know if there’s a fix for this? TIA!

sudo apt-get install php7.0-gd


I have tried these two codes (sudo apt-get install php7.0-gd,sudo apt-get install php7.1-gd)
but still the problem is their,is their any other solution to solve this problem.

  • possibly because you are using php7.2. You can verify it by typing php -v in your terminal.

    If you are using php7.2, you can install gd library using sudo apt-get install php7.2-gd

I did an upgrade from PHP 5.3 to PHP 5.6 over PHP 7.x and had installed cs-cart whole the website was not showing images, its takes around 2 days trying to figure out how to solve the images displays. After check this post saw that’s the library for -GD was missing on upgrade.

I ran the command: sudo apt-get install php5.6-gd and it’s solved my issue.
Thank you!

Can’t find php5.6-gd on debian 9. On which system version did you sudo apt-get install php5.6-gd ?

if you are running php version 7.2 use:

sudo apt-get install php7.2-gd
