Evolution can't find libs in its own subdirectories


Trying to install evolution I have downloaded and compiled the files listed here and compiled them all relatively painlessly (just a couple of glitches with that old chestnut PKG_CONFIG_PATH) but when I try to start evolution I get
Code:
mark@darkstar:/usr/local/bin# evolution-2.0
evolution-2.0: error while loading shared libraries: libeshell.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
but
Code:
root@darkstar:/usr/local/bin# slocate libeshell.so.0
/usr/local/lib/evolution/2.0/libeshell.so.0.0.0
/usr/local/lib/evolution/2.0/libeshell.so.0
/usr/local/evolution-2.0.4/shell/.libs/libeshell.so.0.0.0
/usr/local/evolution-2.0.4/shell/.libs/libeshell.so.0.0.0T
/usr/local/evolution-2.0.4/shell/.libs/libeshell.so.0
Also if I do ldd evolution-2.0 it shows a bunch of lib*.*.* => not found errors but all the libs reported as not found are present in evolution-2.0 sub-directories.

Thanks in advance for any ideas on how to get evolution to find its libs :)

Hello,

A temporary solution (i.e. you have to do that each time you want to run evolution from a new shell):
Code:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/lib/evolution/2.0
A definitive solution: add the following line in your /etc/ld.so.conf file:
/usr/local/lib/evolution/2.0
and then run (as root) ldconfig

Thanks so much for the reply Oliv' but unfortunately it didn't work.

Same error message and I also played around with the $ sign and adding a "/" at the end.

I am totally stumped with this one
