To whom it may concern,

I am trying to install seamonkey through the terminal. I have put the installer folder where I want it to be. When I run the command ./seamonkey-installer this message comes up:

./seamonkey-installer-bin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Does it simply mean that I do not have and that I will need to download it? I ran the same thing from the terminal from my desktop and it work flawlessly. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If I do need that libstdc where should I put it after I get it?

Yes, it seems it depends on the library, and can't find it.

What distro are you running? You might be able to install with a package manager (apt, yum, etc) which would download and install all dependencies at the same time.

For debian or Ubuntu that would be in a package called.. libstdc++5

Using the package manager in your distribution to install programs will automatically fix these types of issues..

aptitude install seamonkey

sudo apt-get install seamonkey

urpmi seamonkey


yum install seamonkey
