Linux

Cheese fails to load

Hello,

Today on my linux box i tried shooting Cheese app after many days. Apparently to my surprise it failed to load couple of times. Immediately launching the same app via Terminal shows me that it cant load shared library libcogl.

The error shows like below:

libcogl.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

On googling, i came to know i need to re-compile x11-libs/xm package. Which i was unsure of why i should :O

To my surprise the solution is very simple and yet i failed to rectify it myself. Below is the solution:

  1. Log in as root (via command line also no problem)
  2. Run below commands:

ln /usr/lib/libffi.so /usr/lib/libffi.so.5
ln /usr/lib/libcogl.so /usr/lib/libcogl.so.5

Thanks,
Zen 🙂
