I followed the instructions here: https://gavofyork.gitbooks.io/turboethereum/content/chapter1.html

For installing mix on my machine. The last step threw some errors saying I have some unmet dependencies (sudo apt-get install mix). I read in a thread in stackexchange that for ubuntu this has been changed to

sudo apt-get install mix-ide

Running that, the installation worked. But now it shows this error:

mix-ide: error while loading shared libraries: libsolidity.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

What could be the issue?

Mix is no longer supported. It was discontinued several months back and the TurboEthereum guide you refer to is probably a year out of date.

Some alternatives are suggested at http://solidity.readthedocs.org
