I packaged Ghostscript 8.70 for Puppy

http://puppylover.netsons.org/dokupuppy/programs:ghostscript
direct link

It seems work fine, only, at end of installation, it shows a warning about a single dependency missing:

libgio-2.0.so.0

but it seems work fine

do you think gs may work also without libgio-2.0.so.0? otherwise
I will add

libgio is a part of GLIB, which in turn is a dependancy of GTK. libgio should be present, you might find a simple symlink would work. That particular file, libgio-2.0.so.0 is probably a symlink itself, pointing to the main file which will be similar but have a slightly different extension.

On my system it links like this: libgio-2.0.so -> libgio.so.0 -> libgio.so.0.1800.3

The last one is the only actual library, the others are symlinks.

sikpuppy,

I ran into this missing dependency for another package (Chrome for Linux), and I see the symlinks you're talking about. Is it Puppy that's looking in the wrong place for the package, or Chrome? And how do I point them in the right direction so I can satisfy my OCD need to have all dependencies satisfied (even though Chrome seems to be working fine)?

Thankee much.

Ghostscript is a cross platform clone to render and print using the Postscript scripting language.

One of the uses is to render PDF files for printing and screen-rendering.

Basically a lot of PDF readers use it as well as CUPS to print I believe.

... AND the GIMP uses it to render EPS format files.
