Solving issues with libtiff.so.3 (under L- Ubuntu)

Post by rohdekage » Tue Dec 04, 2012 10:44 am

Hi out there!


[b]THX to all your help in this forum![/b] I would like to add a detailed solution to starting-error:

[code]/opt/medusa4_personal_v5_0/medcolraster/m2d/run/draft: error while loading shared libraries: libtiff.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory[/code]

You have to find the installed [i]libtiff.so.versionnumber[/i] . In terminal run:

[code]sudo locate libtiff*[/code]

It shows something like:

[code]/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libtiff.so.4.3.4[/code]

The path and version-number of your Linux-installation is important, here [i]4.3.4[/i]. You have to link the demanded [i]libtiff.so.3[/i] to your version with Linux-command [i]ln -s[/i]. So type in terminal
[code]sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libtiff.so.4.3.4 /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libtiff.so.3[/code]

With
[code]sudo /opt/medusa4_personal_v5_0/master_project/startmedusa[/code]

MEDUSA should start properly now.
