Hi. I've been trying to compile Sylpheed in both Vector 6.0 Standard and 6.0 KDE Classic, but in each case I've had to admit defeat. The error message I keep getting when I try to use Sylpheed is as follows;

sylpheed: error while loading shared libraries: libsylpheed-plugin-0.so.0

cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This happens whether I'm trying to build and run Sylpheed 2.7.1 or 3.0.0 (the latest version).

It's not the end of the world as Sylpheed Claws 3.7.5 builds and runs fine in Vector 6.0 and does everything I need from an email program, but I'm curious as to what might be going wrong.

Has anyone got any ideas about this?

Thanks in advance,

Colonel Panic.

I am running Sylpheed 2.7.0 and will install soon version 3.0. I do not recall having had an
install problem. I do have that library:
$ locate  libsylpheed-plugin-0.so.0
/usr/local/lib/libsylpheed-plugin-0.so.0
/usr/local/lib/libsylpheed-plugin-0.so.0.0.0

Normally I am using Claws-mail, except when I have to use an external print command
a feature which got lost in claws-mail or I am unable to make it work unlike in previous versions
of claws-mail.

I just installed sylpheed-3.0 and to run it I had to do "ldconfig" first as sudo otherwise
I got the same error you mentioned. In fact giving command:
"ldd /usr/local/bin/sylpheed|grep found"
showed it missed even 2 libraries. Not anymore after ldconfig.

Thanks for this, I'll give it a try soon.

Just one thing though; even in Sylpheed Claws I'm unable to send E-mails with SSL enabled. Normally it doesn't matter much but there are times when it might, so I'd like to get it fixed if possible.

Just installed Sylpheed-3.0.2. Went smooth and this time I had not to do ldconfig
to start it.
And true mail will not leave when SSL is checked to be used even when non-blocking
SSL is turned off as suggested.
