Posted by florian on April 29 2008,18:50I get the following error message while launching the program after loading gtk+-2.10.uci this and then this geany extension: /opt/bin/geany: error while loading shared libraries: libXfixes.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Posted by Jason W on April 29 2008,19:18I get the same error when I tested geany with the gtk+-2.10.uci. It _should_ work with gtk+-2.10.uci since geany does not require anything beyond a very basic gtk2 setup. I was hoping that it would. But does work with the gtk2 extensions mentioned in the info file for sure, even though they don't contain libXfixes.so.3. Juanito would be able to explain if this is an issue with the cairo/gtk2+-10.uci setup, or if it is a configuration issue on our part.
EDIT: geany works fine with the gtk+-2.10.uci extension. I just had to set it up right. The libXfixes.so.3 error comes up when /opt/cairo-1.2/lib is not in your /etc/ld.so.conf file. When that is added and ldconfig is issued that error goes away.

- but, in recent versions of dsl at least, when you load a uci extension the libs in that extension are automatically added to ld.so.conf??
Posted by Jason W on April 30 2008,11:28True. I was using DSL 3.4.11. For the most recent DSLs, a simple "export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/gtk+-2.10/lib" in the terminal before starting geany or any other app will do when using gtk+-2.10.uci.
