LMule wont start
Posted 18 October 2003 - 03:15 PM
I used the tar.gz package as there was not one for Mandrake. I installed wxGTK first which seemed to work without any problems and then I continued with lmule ./configure && make etc...
This seemed to work well also, although it did seem to take a while. I then proceeded to run lmule.desktop which I assumed is the correct way to launch the app, but when I do this a taskbar button appears as you'd expect but the hour glass ticks away for a while (on the taskbar button) and then it just disapears and nothing happens?
Could someone please point out what may be wrong here please! :wink:

I then tried what you said above about running it from the terminal and with xMule I get the following error message:
/usr/bin/xmule: error while loading shared libraries: libwx_gtk-2.4.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Does this mean that when I ran the compile program it did not pick up libwx_gtk-2.4.so.0 properly? If so how would I go about getting it to pick it up?
I remember the rpm would not install becuase it needed the above so I went and found a different rpm which had this, so it should be installed?
Thank you, any further help would be appreciated! :oops:/>

I solved the problem by finding out where libwx_gtk-2.4.so.0
Now when I type in xmule it seems to work fine!
Thanks for all your input though, I will make a note of your comments to use in future problems while troubleshooting! :P/>
I dont feel like such a linux n00b now!
