    Audacity


    Hi, i recently installed audacity and some package the site said i shoud install for audacity to run. Nevertheless, i get this message when trying to run the app from a konsole:
    "audacity: error while loading shared libraries: libwx_x11univ-2.4.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

    I have no idea what this could be. I just have a few ideas. Maybe i have to link with "ln" the file needed to audacity, like linking the jdk to mozilla when installing the virtual machine. Or maybe i have to tell the audacity installer where this required file is. Any ideas?

    Here's the link i've been using as a guide:
    http://audacity.sourceforge.net/unix.php

    Did you make you sure the path to necessary libriaries is in /etc/ld.so.conf

    This is what i currently have on this file you mentioned:

    Code:
    [rafa@00e0295c9f23 etc]$ cat ld.so.conf|more
    /usr/X11R6/lib
    /usr/lib/qt3/lib
    I can see right there that there is no xWidget thing what so ever.

    I tried adding the missing usr/local/lib where libwx_x11univ-2.4.so@ is, though i don't know what the @ is doing there. Anyways, this file now looks like this:

    Code:
    [rafa@00e0295c9f23 etc]$ cat ld.so.conf|more
    /usr/X11R6/lib
    /usr/lib/qt3/lib
    /usr/local/lib
    But the error is still the same.

    The @ at the end of name suggests it is a symbolic link. Try to figure out where it points to, by using -l option for ls. Pehaps it is a dead link and therefore the library can't be loaded.

    After you edit the file, you have to run the ldconfig command.

    Here's the outcome of the command you are talking about:
    Code:
    [rafa@00e0295c9f23 lib]$ ls -l
    total 6400
    lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           26 Dec  7 11:50 libwx_x11univ-2.4.so -> libwx_x11univ-2.4.so.0.1.1*
    lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           26 Dec  7 11:50 libwx_x11univ-2.4.so.0 -> libwx_x11univ-2.4.so.0.1.1*
    -rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root      6534302 Dec  7 11:50 libwx_x11univ-2.4.so.0.1.1*
    drwxr-xr-x    3 root     root         4096 Dec  7 11:50 wx/
    [rafa@00e0295c9f23 lib]$
    I am still kinda lost, so a little bit more detail on the explanations would be really great.

    It's starting to be frustrating... One more thing. At the shell prompt type
    Code:
    ldd `which audacity`
    This should give a list of libraries the program is expecting.

    Thanks to everyone!!! I got it running half way!!!

    After some first run configs, i though it was gonna run, but i got a "segmentation fault" on the terminal. What is this about?

    I read this somewhere and i wanted to know how to do it, how to "add" to my "path". Vague or what!!

    "You may also want to add "/usr/local/bin" to your path, so that programs can find the "wx-config" utility."
