Bug Description

Binary package hint: chmsee

Received the following error upon trying to start chmsee:
chmsee: error while loading shared libraries: libxul.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

chmsee Version:
1.0.0-1ubuntu1 (hardy)

Running Hardy 8.04

libxul located here:
/usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9b4/libxul.so
I believe this came w/ xulrunner-1.9 (version: 1.9~b4+nobinonly-0ubuntu1)

Added following symlinks:
sudo ln -s xulrunner-1.9b4/libxul.so libxul.so
sudo ln -s xulrunner-1.9b4/libxpcom.so libxpcom.so
sudo ln -s xulrunner-1.9b4/libsqlite3.so libsqlite3.so
sudo ln -s xulrunner-1.9b4/libmozjs.so libmozjs.so

Everything appears now to work.

Thanks Alexander. Went to use chmsee and it did not work. You saved perhaps a great deal of frustration.

I can confirm this bug on Hardy.

Saïvann,

The deadline for Ubuntu 8.04.1 uploads being /accepted/ into -proposed is June 1 (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardyReleaseSchedule). I'm not sure which "final" xulrunner upload you're waiting on, but this doesn't seem to leave much window for the chmsee upload to actually happen. As such, while I think this is a reasonable SRU candidate and will target it to the hardy release, I don't think it's appropriate to treat this as a blocker for 8.04.1 and am dropping the milestone.

Changed in chmsee:
milestone: ubuntu-8.04.1 → none

SRU will be enough for this package, thanks.

what about adding a /etc/ld.so.conf.d/xulrunner ? worked for me

Saivann Carignan (oxmosys) wrote :

mnemoc : I don't know about your solution but I know that the current chmsee will need to be fixed anyway to use the correct path because the current package is misconfigured, and the xulrunner path is probably going to change again when the final release of Firefox will get into hardy-updates so I'm waiting for it (will probably appears during june month).

This one worked for me:

see my comments on bug 232402 .... this needs to be fixed properly.

confirmed on hardy.

fixed by linking to shared libs:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9/libxul.so /usr/lib/libxul.so
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9/libxpcom.so /usr/lib/libxpcom.so
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9/libsqlite3.so /usr/lib/libsqlite3.so
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9/libmozjs.so /usr/lib/libmozjs.so

(as above, but without the b5).

Is this going in backports?
