Help finding lib files for Linux Mint 17 64bit


I am trying to run FEA (Finite Element Analysia) LS-DYNA and LS-PrePost software. I get an error that there are missing lib files. Can anyone help me locate these lib files:

libtiff.so.4 => not found
libLSIO653.so.0 => not found
libLSAF653.so.0 => not found
libLSVI653.so.0 => not found
libLSMA653.so.0 => not found
libLSMD653.so.0 => not found
libLSFC653.so.0 => not found
libavformat.so.0 => not found
libavcodec.so.0 => not found
libavutil.so.0 => not found
libswscale.so.0 => not found
libGLEW.so.1.9 => not found
libintlc.so.5 => not found

Thanks for any help. Good Hunting... from Varmint Al

did you read the install instructions from where ever you got the software ?

some of those will be in your OS's standard repos like "libtiff" and "GLEW"

Yes. Followed instructions

Yes, I followed the installation instructions:

Instructions to install and run Lsprepost 4.2 on Linux systems
-------------------------------------------------------------

1. Download the lsprepost-4.2-xxxxx.tgz file, xxxxx is the operating
system name

2. Unzip and untar the lsprepost-4.2-xxxxx.tgz file using the following
command:

tar xvfz lsprepost-4.2-xxxxx.tgz
or
gunzip -c lsprepost-4.2-xxxxx.tgz | tar xvf -

3. A directory lsprepost-4.2-xxxxx will be created, there are 3 files
and 2 sub-directories in this distribution directory:

README.txt - This file
lspp42 - a script to run lsprepost 4.2
lsprepost - the executable of lsprepost 4.2
lib - subdirectory contains the dynamic runtime libraries
resource - subdirectory contains the help file and other resource
files

4. Modify the lspp42 script to set the two environment variables:
LSPP_HELPDIR and LD_LIBRARY_PATH with properly path name,
in the script, set variable DN to the directory name where the
lsprepost 4.2 distribution is.
e.g. DN="/home/pho/lsprepost4.2_ubuntu12"

#!/bin/bash
# modify the following line for your directory name
DN="/home/al/lsprepost4.2_ubuntu12"
export LSPP_HELPDIR=$DN/resource/HelpDocument
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$DN/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
$DN/lsprepost $*

5. Put file lspp42 in a directory that is in your default search path.
My system is: /home/al where I edited the line: DN="/home/al/lsprepost4.2_ubuntu12"
Then I placed the script in the /usr/bin directory and went there and issued the chmod 755 lspp42 command to make it executable.
When I tried to run lspp42 I got the error that it could not find "libtiff.so.4 => not found"

When I issued the sudo ldd lsprepost command it showed the missing lib files.

As Mint is based on Ubuntu, this may help.

man , this is supporting dead and unsupported operating systems
there is a cent 4 version made this year
a suse10 and a opensuse 11
all unsupported OS's
ftp://ftp.lstc.com/outgoing/lsprepost/4.2/linux64/

and also opensuse 13.1
and cent6

now "File:lsprepost-4.2-ubuntu12.tgz"
might have issues on Mint 17

i would install it on the Long term support LTS ubuntu 12.04
mind you it will be out of support in 2 years

or
have fun with incompatible libraries

or
install the "lsprepost-4.2-centos6.tgz" on CentOS 6.5
----------------------------------------


but as to not finding the files in the
"/home/al/lsprepost4.2_ubuntu12/lib"
folder

you did not export that location

did you edit "lspp42" to match your settings

after you run the script "lspp42" and in the SAME TERMINAL SESSION ( do not close the terminal or you will have to rerun "lspp42" )
run
Code:
echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH
the folder "/home/al/lsprepost4.2_ubuntu12/lib" should be there

Problem solved.

Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca had libtiff.so.5 and the LS-PrePost (lsprepost4.2_ubuntu12) was looking for libtiff.so.4. So I installed ubuntu 12.04 on a small hard drive and then installed LS-PrePost. ubuntu had the correct library .4. I copied the libtiff.so.4 and placed it in the correct directory: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
Voila! LS-PrePost works fine on Linux Mint.
