Photoprint won't start.

Postby NumNuts on Fri Feb 27, 2009 4:15 pm

Hi,

Photoprint won't start from the menu icon, when I try in a terminal I get:

photoprint: error while loading shared libraries: libgutenprint.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I've reinstalled but still no joy and I've looked in the package manager for the missing library, its not there.

What do I do next?.

Try to search for the library through CLI. You should see the needed package after you execute this command:
Code: Select all
apt-cache search libguten

There should be libgutenprint2 listed within the output, if I am not mistaken.

Thanks

Just solved it though.

Used this:

Sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libgutenprint.so.1 /usr/lib/libgutenprint.so.2

From this bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... bug/260849

Works fine now

Thanks again.
