I just installed pidgin 2.4.1 on my linux(gnome).
And I tried to launch pidgin and I get the following error
pidgin: error while loading shared libraries: libpurple.so.0: cannot open
shared object file: No such file or directory
I checked for this file and it exists in these locations.
ibpurple.so.0 is a sym link to libpurple.so.0.4.1 :
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 2313354 Apr 24 21:01 libpurple.so.0.4.1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Apr 24 21:01 libpurple.so.0 ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Apr 24 21:01 libpurple.so ->
And I googled for solution and I found that many others had similar problem
and the solution was :
1. install gnutls and gnutls dlevel
I checked my installation and gnutls and gnutls dlevel are installed.
And I used the following command to start installation of pidgin
*./configure --prefix=/usr --with-gnutls-includes=/usr/include/gnutls/
I feel I have everything installed and made no mistakes. But still pidgin
refuses to launch!!
Can anyone tell whats wrong?
