Ubuntu 16.04 - error libfreecadgui.so

Postby Vince-Fr » Sun Nov 10, 2019 6:08 pm

Hello,
I am using Ubuntu 16.04 and I have installed freecad 0.18 with repository "ppa:freecad-maintainers/freecad-stable".
When I want to start I have the error:
"freecad: error while loading shared libraries: libFreeCADGui.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
Thank you in advance.

Can you provide the output of the command

Code: Select all

dpkg -l | grep freecad
please?

Edit: Nvm, was able to reproduce this myself. I'll try to fix it shortly.

I found the problem! It was a renaming mistake between version 0.19 and 0.18 in the packaging files:

Code: Select all

libfreecad-python2-0.18.install
libfreecad-python3-0.19.install
I will be triggering a build shortly which will provide the fix. Thank you for reporting this.
