Library annoyances (libwxgtk2.8)


Hi,

I am trying to get Big3DSol (3d solitaire game) to work on my Debian system. I downloaded Big3DSol_1.4_Linux.tar.gz and extracted it to my desktop. It gave an error while trying to run it from the terminal - "./bigsol: error while loading shared libraries: libwx_gtk2_adv-2.8.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory". I then set out to install libwxgtk2.8. I couldn't find it with aptitude (apt-get) so I got the source and extracted it in /usr/local/bin. Then I did the usual ./configure;make;make install - then 'ldconfig' after that. All fine. So I went back to run the game but received the same error even though libwx_gtk2_adv-2.8.so.0 (which was a soft link to libwx_gtk2_adv-2.8.so.0.1.1) resided in /usr/local/lib.

Any ideas?

Does /usr/local/lib exists in /etc/ld.so.conf?
If not, you can add it and then run ldconfig. Afterwards see if your game works.

I recall adding /usr/local/lib to /etc/ld.so.conf but I can't be sure whether I ran ldconfig before or after I did that.

I just ran configure with --prefix=/usr/lib instead and it seemed to be able to find the library this time, although immediately after it produced an error about not being able to find some libwx_gtk2_gl library or something to that effect. It's too much hassle, I'll leave it.

The game isn't even for me. I installed Ubuntu for my dad because I was sick of re-installing windows all the time for him. He manages to get a lot of spyware and viruses. However, he likes to play the MS spider solitaire game so I've been scouting for an alternative. I have since seen KPatience (kpat), so I think that'll do him fine.

Thanks.

Sorry, --prefix=/usr/lib it not a usable option, /usr is.
