Conky cant find libmowgli after upgrade to current


I thought I would try out Eric's KDE 4.5.1 and Robby's new Xorg pacakges. The upgrade went off with out a hitch, but now when I try to launch conky I get

conky: error while loading shared libraries: libmowgli.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

So I rebuilt conky and reinstalled libmowgli ran ldconfig but I still get the error.

Any Ideas?

Thanks

Greetingz!
Well for starters, I'd make sure you have an actual file named "libmowgli.so.1" somewhere;

As root;
find / -name "libmowgli.so*" 2>/dev/null

Then I'd check and see what conkey is actually looking for;

ldd `which conkey`
Note: That's a "command within a command", that uses the back-tick character (a backwards apostrophy). if "which conkey" returns the name of the script, run the ldd command against the actual binary the script calls.

Now, if your find command returns something like "libmowgli.so.1.0.1", and the "ldd" output for "conkey" is looking for plain old "libmowgli.so.1", then you can create a symbolic link to help "conkey" out.

ln -s /path/to/the/real/libarary /path/to/the/libarary/conkey/wants

Example:

ln -s /usr/lib/libmowgli.so.1.0.1 /usr/lib/libmowgli.so.1

Ha, I figured it out right when you posted, lol. I just created the symlink myself like you suggested.

Thanks for the quick reply.
