Hello there.

I'm using slackware 10.1 , and lately I was trying to read some documents encoded in the .djvu format , however I didn't manage to open these files.. I was told to get the djview program , and so I downloaded and compiled it , however it doesn't work.
I get this error message:

bash-3.00$ cd /usr/local/bin
bash-3.00$ ls
any2djvu  cjb2      ddjvu   djvmcvt      djvuextract  djvused    djvutxt
bzz       cpaldjvu  djview  djvudigital  djvumake     djvuserve  djvuxmlparser
c44       csepdjvu  djvm    djvudump     djvups       djvutoxml
bash-3.00$ djview
djview: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I have no idea what has gone wrong , but now I can't even remove what I have installed.
Is there any better idea how to read djvu files?

I think there is all right. The only problem you are lack of the specified

If 'ldconfig -p | grep' displays the library, so it is
either mystics or the symlink is broken and you can try to amend it.

Try to find it out. Look for any libdjvulibre*so* library. If you cannot find
it neither in the /usr/lib nor in the /usr/local/lib, so you should use
"find / -name libdjvulibre\*so\*".

If you find that library.
So ensure it outputs exactly
If it does not, create the symlink with the such name, pointing to or something like.
If it does, then ensure the directory entry, it is located in, listed in the
file If it does not - add it. If it does - I do not know what to

After any changes run ldconfig.

If you cannot find that library.
You should install particular package which contains the library.
