Configuring Compupic


Hi all. Wonder if anyone is using Compupic for Linux. I recently installed this program following instructions I found on the web. Needed to install an older version of glibc for compatibility reasons. That done, I opened a terminal and typed the following, per the tutorial:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib/libc/lib compupic (what's that all mean?)

Compupic showed it's banner and loaded like a champ, running flawlessly. I proceeded to create a desktop launcher, using the same command that I used in the terminal. However, I receive this error message:

There was an error launching the application.
Details: Failed to execute child process "LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib/libc/lib" (No such file or directory)

I also edited the command line to append the character & after the word compupic, per another tutorial on the web, but nothing changed.

This puzzles me. I have had Compupic working from a desktop launcher in the past, but not this time.
I'm running Gnome under Mandrake 10.

Anyone have any ideas as to why this won't work? Your thoughts greatly appreciated.

Glennzo

Did you ever get it to work?

When icons don't cooperate, write a simple script.

vi startcompupic.sh

copy the lines below.

#!/bin/bash
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib/libc/lib compupic




save it

chmod u+x startcompupic.sh

Point the icon to that script and voila!

What version of glib does compupic need? I have a client who wants a picture manipulation program that allows thumbnails, slideshows and selection for printing. Does compupic do this?

TIA,

Alex

I never got it to work. It's not as though I need the program as I don't do much with graphics. It's just something that I've been using for years. I don't even have it installed on the machine at this time.

Compupic needs an earlier version of glibc than what's packaged with today's Linux's, but I'm not sure which one. If you really need to know I can find out. Thank you for you help.

I'll rtfm and figure out which glib is needed

Thanks,

I'll find out which glib is needed by the tried and true - rtfm!

ImgSeek looks pretty cool and installed very easily : )

Thanks,

Alex

Hope you didn't think I was blowing you off by not telling you what version of glib is needed by Compupic. I didn't have the info handy. I might have a printout around somewhere. I actually e-mailed Compupic tech support about it. That's how I found out that I needed an older version of glib. If you want me to research it I can.

Swiftnet, I found myself on Google! Here's the text of the message regarding Compupic:

Re: Compupic segfaults under Redhat 9

Alan, here's the text of an e-mail I got from Compupic tech when I asked them
why Compupic worked under Mandrake 9.0 but not under Mandrake 9.1. I followed
the instructions and now Compupic works for me in MDK9.1. Maybe this will
help you under Redhat.
