    .bin file not found - trying to use program sunbird

    Unpacked sunbird to /home/pc/.DownloadedSoftware/sunbird

    tried to run by clicking on sunbird - run in terminal:

    /home/pc/.DownloadedSoftware/sunbird/run-mozilla.sh: 166: /home/pc/.DownloadedSoftware/sunbird/run-mozilla.sh: /home/pc/.DownloadedSoftware/sunbird/sunbird-bin: not found

    Added directory to path:

    pc@dell:~$ export PATH=/home/pc/.DownloadedSoftware/sunbird:$PATH
    pc@dell:~$ echo $PATH
    /home/pc/.DownloadedSoftware/sunbird:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games:/snap/bin

    Still the same error message:

    /home/pc/.DownloadedSoftware/sunbird/run-mozilla.sh: 166: /home/pc/.DownloadedSoftware/sunbird/run-mozilla.sh: /home/pc/.DownloadedSoftware/sunbird/sunbird-bin: not found

    Went to README.txt

    For information about installing, running and configuring Sunbird
    including a list of known issues and troubleshooting information,
    refer to: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/

    Nothing there! Search for "sunbird" gives 7 results and the most relevant is:

    Mozilla discontinued the sunbird project many many years ago. https://www-archive.mozilla.org/proj...nbird/download

    Yes, I know it is discontinued, but I would like to give it a try. I need a calendar that works like Lightning, and I need it to run independently of Thunderbird.

    Not really surprising that you can't find any information on sunbird at mozilla. The project was stopped in 2010. The official calendar application by mozilla is the 'Lightning' add-on to the Thunderbird email client. I tried the sunbird 1.0 beta 1 (the final release of the project) from mozilla's ftp and it started without any problems when I called it with './sunbird' after unpacking the archive into ~/bin and changing into the directory created by unpacking with 'cd ~/bin/sunbird'.

    Thanks.

    I was not surprised either. Just wanted to show I had tried some obvious options.

    I tried the software in my home dir, and just now made a ~bin and put it in there. No change.

    I downloaded it again from this link and got the same result again:

    http://download.mozilla.org/?product...nux&lang=en-US

    on this page:

    https://www-archive.mozilla.org/proj.../download.html

    Are you going somewhere different?

    What you're using is the 32 bit version 0.8. I tried that first but it wouldn't run because it needed several libraries of which I had only the 64 bit versions installed. The link in my previous post goes to ftp.mozilla.org/pub/calendar/sunbird/releases/1.0b1/linux-x86_64/en-US/ and has the latest / last version published.

    Are you sure? Please post the output of:
    Code:
    ls -al /home/pc/.DownloadedSoftware/sunbird
    Code:
    /home/pc/.DownloadedSoftware/sunbird/run-mozilla.sh: 166: /home/pc/.DownloadedSoftware/sunbird/run-mozilla.sh: /home/pc/.DownloadedSoftware/sunbird/sunbird-bin: not found
    ^ Might also be incorrect permissions. See above, we need the output of "ls -al" of that directory to be sure. If the "execute" permission isn't there, then you will not be able to execute that program and I'd expect error messages such as the one you see there.

    And you found no other software that you could try? Oh well, it's your PC. Do as you please.

    Re: .bin file not found - trying to use program sunbird

    So I downloaded it and see what is inside. First of all instead of invoking sunbird-bin, you should invoke the script sunbird which sets the environmental variables in order to run the bin

    Code:
    cd /home/monkeybrain/Downloads/sunbird
    
    ./sunbird
    But this gives the error
    Code:
    ./sunbird-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.
    I checked that libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 is already in my system but this is a 32 bit app and needs the 32 bit (:i386) version of the lib. To find out what other runtime libraries are required

    So in order to run this you have to install all the "not found" libs (the i386 version) Some may be in the repository, some may be not since they may be obsolete. But even if you can install them it may not run because the new versions may not be backward compatible.
