On Mint:-
Code:
jeremy@hector:~$ locate libcairo.so
produces

/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcairo.so.2
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcairo.so.2.11200.16

Perhaps you just need to create an appropriate symlink?

Have you tested if that file is present? It should be a symlink and point to libcairo.so.2.11200.16 in the same directory.

Suggest : Reinstall / update cairo
ftp://ftp.slackware.org.uk/slackware..._slack14.1.txz

# upgradepkg cairo-1.12.16-x86_64-1_slack14.1.txz
( # installpkg cairo-1.12.16-x86_64-1_slack14.1.txz ).

/usr/lib64/{ libcairo.so -> libcairo.so.2.11200.16 }

# locate libcairo.so

/root/cairo/src/.libs/libcairo.so
/root/cairo/src/.libs/libcairo.so.2
/usr/local/lib/libcairo.so
/usr/local/lib/libcairo.so.2.11301.0
/usr/local/lib/libcairo.so.2
/usr/lib64/libcairo.so.2.11200.16

/usr/lib64/libcairo.so.2
/usr/lib/libcairo.so.2.11200.14

According to your locate output the symlink is already in place.
