Check /usr/X11R6/lib is in /etc/ld.so.conf then run ldconfig. That's all I have in my /etc/ld.so.conf, just the one line,

/usr/X11R6/lib

Edit - I should add, well done for making it this far. Looks to me like you're doing well.

Thank you! I had the same question. I noticed when I edited ld.so.conf that I had /usr/local/lib and /opt/lib in there too. Is this good? Bad? Unimportant?

Thanks.

If you have things installed in /usr/local and in /opt (with their libraries being in /ust/local/lib and /opt/lib ) - than this is not only not bad, but neccesary for those things to work

If the library loader does not know about these location of libraries - they could just as well not be installed at all - because you would not be able to use them (because they will not be found).

There are ways around this, but telling ld.so about all the places, where libraries are installde via its config-file /etc/ld.so.conf is the most convenient.
