Bug Description

Binary package hint: drapes

Drapes raises an exception due to missing libX11.
Libx11-6 is installed on my Natty beta1 system, so I guess Drapes shall be relinked.
Details from terminal below:

Monitoraggio della cartella :/Documenti/Documenti/Drapes non esiste
Exception in Gtk# callback delegate
  Note: Applications can use GLib.ExceptionManager.UnhandledException to handle the exception.
System.DllNotFoundException: libX11.so

I had the same problem in Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit.

This is what I have done to solve it:

    cd /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu
    sudo ln -s libX11.so.6 libX11.so

Tried command in comment #2 but now the program just hangs with no terminal output.

Using ubuntu 11.04 64-bit

The command in comment #2 would only work on 32-bit systems
The better option is to install libx11-dev
That should work on 32-bit and 64-bit systems

My libX11.so already exists (linked to libX11.so.6.3.0 ... same as libX11.so.6), and my libx11-dev is up to date and installed as well. I'm having the same problem Joel is in comment #4. Running in terminal or from Unity the program doesn't do anything, just hangs.

Ubuntu 11.04 32bit.

Actually.... drapes DOES start, but under the Unity desktop, as configured by default, you can't see the icon to let you see that fact, or to allow you to configure drapes, making it rather useless. If you configure the Unity panel to show all system notification icons (as I just did) then it works just fine.
