i'm running elementaryOS 0.2 (Luna [Ubuntu 12.04 LTS based fork]) with Radeon HD3000 series open-source linux driver.
I tried once to run this blender version while using fglrx, its running. But, when i back to open-source driver, this error bother me again.

~$ ldd /usr/lib/blender/blender | grep "not found"

gives me this result: => not found => not found => not found => not found

it appears there are some missing libraries

I get same list of missing libs as Riki Villalba (rikivillalba). Tried installing the dev versions of these libs
eg libavformat-dev , libavdevice-dev etc. Did not help

I have libavdevice53 installed but there is no libavdevice in synaptic

Blender 2.69+svn61239+git201401010427.d8f4cb9 on Ubuntu 12.04 (precise) 32-bit

And blender was working before on this machine. Not sure what has changed.
