I am new to Linux and new to the forum. I recently purchased Vector Linux 5.91 SOHO Deluxe. I have messed with Windows for years, so installing Vector was no problem. My troubles began when I tried to add additional packages that SOHO deluxe did not come with. I will start with Abiword for this post. I downloaded the Abiword package from http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-5.9/packages/x-apps/abiword-2.5.2-i586-1vl59.tlz
I was able to install it, however it will not launch. It will not launch from the menu, and it will not launch from Konsole either. Konsole returns the following errors:
abiword: error while loading shared libraries: libgnomeprintui-2-2.so.0:
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I have already tried ldconfig, as well as finding the abiword exe file by using the whereis command. Finally I learned how to use the lld command to list the dependencies, and the following two libraries appear to be missing:
libgnomeprintui-2-2.so.0 => not found
libgnomeprint-2-2.so.0 => not found
It was at this point that the paid support personnel referred me to this forum. I cannot find these exact libraries in any of the repositories. Anyone know how to get Abiword up and going on SOHO 5.91 Deluxe?
I am having similiar issues with trying to install gparted, but I will focus on Abiword for now. Any help is appreciated. Please be patient if I do not respond for several hours. I do not have access to the Internet where I work, so I will be checking in before and after work. Thanks!
