Question A problem with "LibX11-dev"


Hello,

I have installed libX11-dev successfully on my Ubuntu
but when I type "locate libX11" it only returns
these two files.

************************************
/usr/lib/libX11.so.6
/usr/lib/libX11.s0.6.2.0
************************************

But there is "libX11.a" in "/usr/lib/" directory too.
And "locate" can not recognize it!

Does it need to be active or some thing?

With best regards,
Hassan

Hi,

You need to run
Code:
updatedb
right after adding new files, in order for locate to be able to find them.
Or else you have to wait until updatedb is run by cron

Regards

Hi Bathory,

I do not think it is because of updating or something.
It is updated!

Thanks anyway,
Hassan
