libXft problem on Ubuntu Hardy

Post by leifbrunosson » Sun Oct 19, 2008 5:30 pm

I have installed Medusa4 free ware on Ubuntu Hardy AMD64

First run of ./startmedusa gave

>/opt/medusa4_pers_v3_0/med2d/m2d/run/draft: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libXft.so.2: undefined symbol: FT_Library_SetLcdFilter

Gooogeld around and fond a workaround on a Ubuntu forum

>Download libxft deb from http://packages.ubuntu.com/feisty/libxft2
>Do:
>dpkg --extract libxft2_2.1.12-1_amd64.deb /tmp
>sudo mkdir -p /opt/medusa4_pers_v3_0/lib
>sudo cp /tmp/usr/lib/libXft.so.2* //opt/medusa4_pers_v3_0/lib
>LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/medusa4_pers_v3_0/ ./startmedusa

This gave a new error

renaming /opt/medusa4_pers_v3_0/medsys/med/share/libfreetype.... to ...old did not help.

Is there anywon having new ides?

This looks like you have downloaded 64 bit libs. MEDUSA is a 32 bit program so can not use these. I would try just renaming the libs in medsys/med/share and not use the libs you download or change LD_LIBRARY_PATH

Thanks Simong,

I think I have found the problem.
When trying to install X11 libs my proprietary ATI Radeon video driver fuckes upp and I get 800x600 resolution. I guess I have to live with a medusa4 installation i have on a old windows PC time been.
