Sub_title: Error while loading shared libraries
 

I have a thunderbird pet downloaded and installed by puppy package manager, but it won't start. I am running Wary 5, by the way. I followed the suggestion of running a command line; it gives the following result:
Code:

Code:
   
/opt/thunderbird//thunderbird-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libdbus-glib-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory



What does this mean, exactly, and what should I do?

Jake

Hi Jake- which version and did you install over an existing copy? Full install or frugal with a savefile stored somewhere?

According to 5.0's release notes, Wary's built without dbus support. Grab your third dbus pet from here and try again.

I'm pretty sure if all works out you can update to the latest through TB itself..

Hi, semme: I downloaded thunderbird-7.0.1. Previous copy was removed (I don't remember which version, but it didn't play either). I have a frugal install with a save file on disk.

After downloading the dbus package, still no joy. I get an error message thus:
Code:


/opt/thunderbird/thunderbird-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libdbus-1.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Question- why is TB in /opt? Run a system search for "libdbus-1.so.3" and let us know if it's onboard.

This or make life easy- uninstall yours and run it this way.. which may just appeal to your frugal side.

Semme:
It seems my last post disappeared. In it, I indicated that the thunderbird files are in /opt because the package manager put them there. However, you are right, they would be better of in /mnt/home, to save on memory.

Meanwhile, Pfind indicates there's no libdbus-1.so.3 anywhere on my system.

I have tried to download the .tar.bz2 files from the TB site - of two versions, in fact - but with no positive results. In fact it seems when I run the command line on the console, there is no command "thunderbird".

I have now reverted to the pet file, where at least I get a response to the command 'thunderbird', but with the same result as before.

At this point, I am at a loss as to how to proceed. Maybe there is an issue based in Wary5. (I have tried to install Sylpheed, with the same lack of success).

I would like to get away from Seamonkey, for various reasons, but the Seamonkey e-mail client seems married to the Seamonkey browser. I like Firefox better, but running two browsers side by side is not working very well.

Jake- forget the cli. Do it the way described by wuwei- drag to desktop and you'll have nothing but success.

PS- You drag thunderbird, not thunderbird-bin.

Thanks, semme: I'll keep experimenting. Will post to this thread when I get it going.

We'll try something else.. I've attached a file. Extract to your "/lib" directory, then issue from a shell:

Code:
ln -s /lib/libdbus-1.so.3.4.0 /lib/libdbus-1.so.3


Now try'n open TB.. If you receive that error again, TB's look'n for that lib in /opt
libdbus-1.so.3.4.0.gz
Description 
gz

OK! Now I get Thunderbird -- in Chinese! How do I change to an English language version, or do I learn Chinese?

I used my .pet version, by the way --which seems to work a little better for me. I will probably change the files from /opt to /mnt/home later.

Thanks, Semme

I got it from the only firebird pet source I could find, which is chinese ONLY. I have uninstalled this version, and downloaded a thunderbird tarball, which is now conveniently in my /mnt/home directory. It seem everything is working fine now. Thanks a lot for your help.

OK, great. I found out for myself all TB-7.0.1 needed aboard Wary was that file'n symlink I posted.
