    hi Daniel

    libXm.so.4 will be installed by libmotif4 in the folder:
    /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/
    this is in Ubuntu; you can find libmotif4 at ubuntu repositories.
    if it is already installed your program may be looking in /usr/lib/
    you can then link the file in /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ to /usr/lib/ by doing:
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib//i386-linux-gnu/libXm.so.4 /usr/lib/libXm.so.4
    it's best to copy above line and paste it into the terminal in order to avoid errors like missing a space.
    good luck
