Epiphany from Slackware Site


I have installed the epiphany-1.0-i486-1.tgz with slackware package manager (I have slackware 9.0), it installed succesfully, but the app complains
Code:
 epiphany-bin: error while loading shared libraries: 
libgtkembedmoz.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
but I do have two libgtkembedmoz.so's; one in /usr/lib/netscape/libgtkembedmoz.so and the other in /usr/local/mozilla/libgtkembedmoz.so .

I have read all the information I could find on the website and the docs that came with the app, but I have no idea how I can make sure epiphany knows where to look. I mean, these two files are under /usr/lib and /usr/local, shouldn't the app be looking into these dirs already by default?

Maybe I'm doing something completely stupid, but I'm kinda stuck and honestly have no clue what to do or what to read in addittion to what I already have read and done. Any help?

ldd can be used to find out what libraries are really missing. First cd to the directory where your program executable is, such as /usr/bin and then run ldd on the executable and you will get a summary of all the shared libraries the program uses and where they are. Now your program can't find that certain library. This is probably because the path to the library is not specified.
vim /etc/ld.so.conf and add the path, in your case /usr/lib/netscape/ then save and run ldconfig as root or reboot the computer. Now the library should be recognized, but you still MIGHT have to reinstall Epiphany if it gives you the same error as before...

Thank you very much! That was very helpful. Editing /etc/ld.so.conf solved the problem.
Now it complains
Code:
/usr/bin/epiphany-bin: error while loading shared libraries:
libasound.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
This time I indeed don't have this file.
Btw I see that this file is a part of ALSA, but I have no idea why a browser would need that. Should google it a bit, I guess.

Hmm, maybe try to install from source? It's possible that the slackpack has been compiled with special options that include ALSA support. Perhaps by compiling from source you will not need it.
Just a suggestion...

I just did a compilation attempt (beforehand I uninstalled the epiphany through pkgtool), it configured succesfully but now make gives an error like this.
Code:
/usr/lib/mozilla-1.4/libnspr4.so: undefined reference to `pthread_cond_signal@GLIBC_2.3.2'
/usr/lib/mozilla-1.4/libnspr4.so: undefined reference to `pthread_cond_broadcast@GLIBC_2.3.2'

I have this file ->

but have no idea how I to track down the reference with glibc.
(find / -name glibc returned no results btw)

Again, thank you very much for your help so far.

re: epiphany

I ran into this same problem recently, and as I understand it, for
Epiphany to work, you need a version of Mozilla-1.4 compiled
with gtk2 support. That's where the mozgtkembed is found.
You probably have the same feeling as me:
"Why didn't they just say that".

I have several different mozilla installations on my harddisk right now. But I give up, it's way too much of a hassle just to use an "easy to use" browser.

Dropline gnome looks interesting, I read that they are preparing a new package based on 2.4 in a week or so. I may look into this. I love gnome and gnome apps, but compiling them has proven to be always way more difficult than KDE. Maybe it's just me.
