Missing dependencies

Post by Brad_Reed » Sat Feb 01, 2020 11:32 pm

I just tried to give XnViewMP a try on my linux laptop, but apparently I am missing a few libraries.

$ ldd /opt/XnView/XnView | grep found
libQtAV.so.1 => not found
libQtAVWidgets.so.1 => not found
libwoff2dec.so.1.0.2 => not found
libhyphen.so.0 => not found

I have qt5-5.13.2 and qt5-webkit-5.212.0_alpha3 installed. Where can I find libQtAV?

Is a download of the previous version still available?

Hi, what distribution are you using?
Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, etc.

Have you tried to launch the software using xnview.sh?
That script will also use the libs coming with the software.

I'm having the same problem.

It's installed on Ubuntu from XnViewMP-linux-x64.deb

This is what I see:
/opt/XnView/xnview.sh %F
/opt/XnView/XnView: error while loading shared libraries: libopenal.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I'm having the same problem.
Xnview worked for me well in Ubuntu 19.10 and before, in Ubuntu 20.04 I get the error message
"error while loading shared libraries: libopenal.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
The same thing when I try to reinstall it via /opt/XnView/xnview.sh.
If I try to install libopenal1-dev (as stated above) the package is not found by the system.

I have a similar problem with Linux Mint 20 (Linuxmint 20 "ulyana" (Ubuntu 20.04 "focal") kernel 5.4.0-40-generic Cinnamon 4.6.6 Gnome 3.36.2 Bash 5.0.16(1)). Mint 20 was released a few days ago. When I run xniew or xnview.sh, I see
qt5ct: using qt5ct plugin
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Following Pierre's post, I tried installing libopenal1-dev, but Mint 20 doesn't have it, it has libopenal-dev. Installing that did not resolve the problem. Now I can't use xnview, I am forced to use nomacs, qui n'est pas à la cheville de xnview.
