Install PowerShell on ubuntu 17.04


Install PowerShell on Ubuntu 17.04

I see a lot of people struggling to get PowerShell on the new Ubuntu distro



The package manage was unable to install PowerShell due to missing dependent library "libicu55".

Here's the little tweak you can do:

- Download the library from - http://packages.ubuntu.com/en/xenial/amd64/libicu55/download


Once you download the file run the following command to install it

 sudo apt install ./libicu55_55.1-7ubuntu0.2_amd64.deb

Post the library install rerun the PowerShell install command and enjoy 

sudo apt-get install -y powershell
