SOLUTION

Oh, thanks.
You just solved my problem on Debian Sarge 3.1.
Installing openmotif (libmotif3) solved by problem and the citrix client is running now.

cheers

Question libXm.so.3 dependency

I tried to install the Dislin plotting libraries but rpm complained that libXm.so.3 is not present. From reading earlier posts to this forum, I gather this is a library for OpenMotif. If I download and install OpenMotif from OpenMotif.org will that solve the problem? Will that installation automatically put the library in the right directory or does Mandriva expect it in a different location? Is there any conflict between QT widgets and OpenMotif widgets? (I plan to start learning QT programming, but I haven't begun yet). Thanks for any help.

I get the same error that I need to have package "libxm.so.3" when trying to install "ICAClient_9.0_1.i386.rpm".

I am running Mandriva 2006 and installed Openmotif, but I get the same error when trying to install citrix ICAClient_9.0_1.rpm.

Also the citrix website does not like my mozilla download browser, when I click "download" it nevet starts the process to begin download, it says starting, but nothing ever happens. I had to go to Internet Explorer and download the Citrix ICAClient .RPM package.

Any suggestions to resovle my above issue?

Well I finally got it "ICACitrix Client" and "openmotif" installed, but when I try to open citrix it wants to open but it always seems to stall out on me.

If you're running a 64 bit distro, You'll have to install the 32-bit version (i386) rpm of openmotif. Citrix hasn't been able to port their product to a 64-bit Linux platform yet, so you will have to use the 32-bit libs.

The 32s should install ok with rpm. I used the FC4 rpm from rpmfind.net. Doesn't seem to be one there for Mandriva.

#[2]$ rpm -iv /tmp/openmotif-2.2.3-10.i386.rpm

libXm.so.3 dependency

Like others in this discussion, I am currently trying to install iSeriesAccess-5.2.0-1.14.i386 ... in order to connect a linux box with a DB2 database.

I am encountering the same libXm.so.3 dependency problem; however, my problem is due to my having the newer libXm.so.4 installed.

Is there anyway I can get around this dependency issue?

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer.

If any of you are using Mandriva, try using urpmi rather than rpm to do these installs. urpmi will resolve package dependencies for you (even on mdk 10.x) .

HTH,

symlink it
# ln -s /usr/lib/libXm.so.4 /usr/lib/libXm.so.3

This is what has helped me (on ~amd64):

ldd /opt/ICAClient/wfcmgr.bin
linux-gate.so.1 => (0xffffe000)
libXm.so.3 => not found
libXp.so.6 => /usr/lib32/libXp.so.6 (0xf7f8c000)
libXpm.so.4 => /usr/lib32/libXpm.so.4 (0xf7f7b000)
libSM.so.6 => /usr/lib32/libSM.so.6 (0xf7f71000)
libICE.so.6 => /usr/lib32/libICE.so.6 (0xf7f58000)
libXmu.so.6 => /usr/lib32/libXmu.so.6 (0xf7f42000)
libdl.so.2 => /lib32/libdl.so.2 (0xf7f3e000)
libpthread.so.0 => /lib32/libpthread.so.0 (0xf7f27000)
libc.so.6 => /lib32/libc.so.6 (0xf7df7000)
libXt.so.6 => /usr/lib32/libXt.so.6 (0xf7da7000)
libX11.so.6 => /usr/lib32/libX11.so.6 (0xf7cba000)
libXext.so.6 => /usr/lib32/libXext.so.6 (0xf7cab000)
libXau.so.6 => /usr/lib32/libXau.so.6 (0xf7ca7000)
/lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xf7fab000)
libXdmcp.so.6 => /usr/lib32/libXdmcp.so.6 (0xf7ca1000)


and the magic line:

ln -sf /usr/lib32/openmotif-2.2/libXm.so.3 /usr/lib32/

Hi,

I'm using Fedora 9 (64-bit version), and currently dealing with the same problem as the topic starter.
A program I've installed, is looking for libXm.so.3. I have installed a newer version of openmotif (2.3), so I have the libXm.so.4 file available, not libXm.so.3. When I tried installing Openmotif 2.2, it gave an error of another file missing, when I tried to install that file, yet another was missing, etc. I suspect that this software is a bit too old, but I need it anyway.
I have tried to symlink it as described before, and it worked for that one time. But after every reboot, I have to make that link again, and it only works when I'm logged in as root! Is there a way to permanently link the libXm.so.3 to libXm.so.4, for instance by adding a rule to the etc/profile file?
I am a linux-newbie, please keep that in mind when answering my questions... Thanks!

Linking (missing) libXm.so.4 to (existing) libXm.so.3 helped me on Debian Sid 64 bit.
I tried to run DISLIN too, it now starts.

I have found a solution in the meantime: not only linking libXm.so.4 to libXm.so.3, but also copying these files into an other directory (as the program was appearantly looking in the wrong one).
