    Thumbs up Re: missing file

    OK, making some progress. These three commands were successful ....
    $ sudo apt-get install libunistring2/focal
    ~/build/libunistring$ apt-cache policy libunistring2
    sudo apt-get install libunistring-dev
    However, another fatal error - missing file similar to the one documented in post #1.

    I will close this thread as solved since the original missing file issue was successfully addressed. I will also follow the posts in this thread while attempting to address the current missing file.

    @halogen2 You have been so helpful and patient as we worked through this issue. Thank you. Should we ever meet in person, the beer or coffee (your choice) is on me. Have a nice day, you earned it
