Cannot start emacs


Hi all,
I have a strange error, and have no idea how to begin tackling it:-

Code:
emacs: error while loading shared libraries: liblcms2.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Anybody had this, or can point me in the right direction?

Regards

Is this in -current or 13.37?

What version of emacs do you have installed?

Either install the lcms2 package, or else start emacs-24.1-no-x11.
