I have actually found an even better way: download and install the library from http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/amd64/libgcrypt11/download and you’re good to go.
=== Old article for reference
I have used two sources for this article: https://brbsix.github.io/2015/10/29/fix-missing-libgcrypt11-for-brackets-text-editor/ and https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1687348.
The problem with Brackets is that the file ibgcrypt.so.11 is missing. To install it, there are two solutions: using an ipa or modifying the deb file. This tutorial explains how to change the deb file. For this tutorial, I will work in the tmp directory but you can use any directory.
Download the deb file from the brackets website
Create a directory in tmp and go in the directory
mkdir /tmp/brackets cd /tmp/brackets
Extract the deb file
dpkg-deb -x [path of the deb file]/Brackets.Release.1.8.64-bit.deb . dpkg-deb -e [path of the deb file]/Brackets.Release.1.8.64-bit.deb
Remove the text “
libgcrypt11 [..],” in the file
control in DEBIAN/.
Copy the file in
Go back to the root of the files.
Repackage the file.
dpkg-deb -b . [path where you want your brackets deb file]/brackets.deb
