do this ---> #locate libncurses.so.5

that should give u the location of it

then change the permissions for the file using the chmod command...

#chmod a+r path_to_libncurses.so.5_file

a is all
r is read


[or what ever permissions u want --->
r means read
w means write
x means execute

eg. # chmod a+rwx file-name
gives all users read , write, and execute permissions on a file
