Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-shell

when I start gnome-shell from terminal I can see:

(mutter:22487): mutter-WARNING **: Could not load library [/usr/lib/mutter/plugins/libgnome-shell.so (libmozjs.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)]

Is there some missing dependency?

On my system, I did have a /usr/lib/libmozjs.so.2d file, owned by the libmozjs2d package. Symlinking /usr/lib/libmozjs.so to this file seems to have fixed the issue.
