Gnucash libgailutil.so.17 error while loading shared libraries


I am experiencing the following error with Gnucash (version 2.0.2): “gnucash-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libgailutil.so.17: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.” Any pointers would be appreciated.

P.S. I tried the suggestions here, but they didn’t work for me: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...63#post2463963

libgailutil is part of the gail package. You may not have the correct version of gail installed for your version of gnucash. I recently got gnucash to work for me by doing a full Dropline Gnome install, then getting gnucash & all dependencies from the Freerock Gnome unstable folder. I've been pleased with it.
Edit: Just realized that the frg version of gnucash is 2.0.1, so you may not want to do what I did, but it still seems you need a different version of gail.
Regards,
Bill

Here you'll find packages which may be enough to get you going:

If you still run into failed dependencies, let me know what more is needed.
