Hi McRai,

I encountered the same problem when I recently upgraded to ubuntu 17.04. From what I've read, it seems that BeerSmith requires version 12 of libpng but that version is not included in 17.04.

I managed to get around the issue and use BeerSmith by installing version 12 on libpng

You can find and download this package at the links below, it will then install through the Ubuntu Software Center

64bit https://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/amd64/libpng12-0/download

32bit https://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/i386/libpng12-0/download
