I'm trying to run an application and getting the following error on screen:
error while loading shared libraries: libgobject-2.0.so.0
How do I fix this problem under Debian or Ubuntu 64 bit (amd64) Linux?
You need to install the GTK+ ia32 shared libraries under 64 bit Debian or Ubuntu Linux. This package delivers a set of pre-compiled ia32 (i386 family) shared libraries, so that third-party 32bit programs can use the GTK+ widgets on 64-bit systems that include appropriate emulation support. You may need to install and use ia32-lib package on amd64 and ia64 systems. This package contains runtime libraries for the ia32/i386 architecture, configured for use on an amd64 or ia64 Debian system running a 64-bit kernel.
Install ia32-lib and ia32-libs-gtk On Debian / Ubuntu Linux
Open a command-line terminal (select Applications > Accessories > Terminal), and then type:
$ sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-gtk ia32-lib
# apt-get install ia32-libs-gtk
Type the following command to set up the correct links for the shared binaries and rebuild the cache:
# /sbin/ldconfig -v
A Note About Searching Missing Libraries On Debian and Ubuntu Linux
Use the apt-cache command as follows:
$ apt-cache search lib-name-here
$ apt-cache search libcgal
You can also search missing libraries on line at the following locations:
