Monodelop


I installed the mono program on my computer but received a notice saying that I do not have libglitz.so.1, libnspr4.so, libplc4.so, and liblcls4.so. What should I do? Where do I find these files? I used package manager to look for them but found none. Oh I'm using Debian ETch 4.0. Please help. I'm new to this.

Those are libary dependencies that the program needs to have in order to run. Just a do a google search for them and sure enough you'll find out which packages provides those libraries. For example, looking up libglitz shows that you need to install glitz which can be found here: http://freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/glitz. Hope that helps.

Did you include the file extensions when searching for them using the package manager? I've had better luck searching for packages if I didn't do that.

I.E., which of the many Debian package managers are you using? Your choices include, but are not limited to:
  • apt-get
  • aptitude
  • wajig
  • KPackage
  • Synaptic
  • Adept
Knowing which tool you are using may help us figure out what is going wrong & tell us how to tell you how to fix your problem.

Also, which version of which desktop (Gnome, KDE, etc.)?


IIRC, .so files are headers needed for development work & are usually found in -dev packages. How are you using your package manager to search? -- I had no trouble finding the following, both w/ KPackage in Etch-based MEPIS 7.0, & on http://packages.debian.org/:
  • libglitz1-dev
  • libglitz1-glx1-dev
  • libnspr4-dev
Have you installed any of these -dev packages?


I did NOT find anything at all to do w/: libplc4.so, at least, appears to be a legitimate file name as Google turns up plenty of references to it:
http://www.google.com/linux?num=100&...an&btnG=Search
OTOH, your post is the only reference to liblcls4.so

I kind of hate to ask this -- I don't want to be rude or insulting -- BUT, is there any chance there is mistake in these names in your post? -- Did you copy them from an error msg. & paste directly into LQ, w/ no typing involved?
http://www.google.com/linux?q=liblcls4

Possibly these last 2 are not separate packages, but rather files that are part of other packages. Maybe, if you can solve the libglitz.so.1 & libnspr4.so part of the problem, libplc4.so & liblcls4.so will take care of themselves.
