Posted by artturi on Jan. 22 2006,21:23Hello,
I've just installed the latest dsl (2.1b) with frugal-install and I'd like to use gnucash.
Unfortunatly, I get this error :
ERROR: In procedure dynamic-link:
ERROR: file: "libgw-gnc", message: "libart_lgpl.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
Here's how I've procedeed :
Would anyone have a tip ?
Posted by cbagger01 on Jan. 23 2006,04:24I think you need to activate the gtk2 extension from the menu after you load the extension.
It should be listed under the Fluxbox Right-Click menu in the "MyDSL" section.
Posted by artturi on Jan. 25 2006,21:47Thanks for the input but the problem wasn't there.
I searched for the missing library and found a very close one : libart_lgpl_2.so.2
so I did :
sudo ln -nsf /usr/lib/libart_lgpl_2.so.2 /usr/lib/libart_lgpl.so.2
and gnucash started
Posted by jpeters on Feb. 06 2007,08:41Thanks for figuring that out, artturi. I had the same problem, and the link you suggested fixed it. Hopefully, someone can fix the bug as this app is a significant contribution to DSL.
