These are libraries that contain code needed by other programs. When you see ".so" it is a shared object. Basically like a Micro$oft DLL. Your going to get this kind of error message a lot when downloading software and trying to install it. That being said, let me recommend a general strategy. Take the name of the .so and put it in Google. Usually you will get tons of places to download the .so you need. Also try

Its somewhat easier to use because you just put the name of the .so you need in the search field and it takes you to a download for that .so
