error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5


Ok, whenever I try to play ut2004 demo i get this error that says
Code:
./ut2004-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I read on another thread where this guy got the same error, but from a different program. He was running fedora(I'm on Ubuntu) and he fixed it by typing "yum install compat-libstdc++". I tried "apt-get install compat-libstdc++" but it said it couldn't find the package. Any ideas?

You can search in apt using the following...

apt-cache search name.of.package

If you get acres of stuff scrolling past, use the | less option.

apt-cache search libstdc++ | less

less allows you to view output 1 screen at a time. (q to quit)
