Missing x-sharedlib files

Post by Hopestation »

Hi.
I've just installed Mint 20 Cinnamon on a X86-64 pc.

I copied fpcupdeluxe from my previous Mint 19.1 installation and assumed it would work without any changes, but it doesn't.

I get the following messages:

fpcupdeluxe: Start of compile error summary.
fpcupdeluxe: ERROR: Missing library:
fpcupdeluxe: Start of compile error summary.
fpcupdeluxe: ERROR: libX11.so
fpcupdeluxe: Start of compile error summary.
fpcupdeluxe: ERROR: libgdk_pixbuf-2.0.so
fpcupdeluxe: Start of compile error summary.
fpcupdeluxe: ERROR: libpango-1.0.so

fpcupdeluxe: ERROR: libcairo.so
fpcupdeluxe: Start of compile error summary.
fpcupdeluxe: ERROR: libgdk-x11-2.0.so
fpcupdeluxe: WARNING: You need to install at least the libraries to get libX11.so and libgdk_pixbuf-2.0.so and libpango-1.0.so and libgdk-x11-2.0.so, but also make and binutils to build Lazarus !!
fpcupdeluxe: WARNING: Make, binutils, subversion/svn [and gdb] are also required !!
fpcupdeluxe: WARNING: LazarusNativeInstaller (DownloadFromSVN: Lazarus): svn is needed, but cannot be found on the system !!
fpcupdeluxe: info: LazarusNativeInstaller (GetModule: Lazarus): Lazarus is at revision: 62944

I've found that libxxx.so files are in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu but when I look there I find that each is a link which is marked as link to unknown.
Checking the properties gives "Link to Unknown (application/x-sharedlib)"

I've done a search in File System for "x-sharedlib" and got a list of .png, .svr files which in folders called mimetypes, and xml files which are in various /mime/application folders.

Should I change these links to /usr/share/mime/application/x-sharedlib.xml?
