    Question libltdl3 in 8.10

    Hi,

    I am using a close sourced program which requires the shared library libltdl.so.3.

    I think there was a libltdl3 package for that library, but I can't locate it in Ubuntu 8.10.

    Is there any way to install this library?

    Download from http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy/libltdl3 and install on 8.10

    Nice idea.

    I have done something else, though: I've created a symbolic link of libltdl.so.7 to libltdl.so.3. Luckily my closed sourced application worked!

    Re: libltdl3 in 8.10

    Hi there,

    I just installed libltdl3 so I could work with another package that needed it (if anybody needs to know, it's a package made by Avasys for my Epson Printer and Scanner).

    I downloaded it from here:
    http://packages.debian.org/etch/i386/libltdl3/download

    And all the info for the package is here:
    http://packages.debian.org/etch/libltdl3


    Cheers

    Edit:
    I can't install the package, apparently there is a conflict with pulse. It seems that this version is too old for pulse. I tried with the unstable version and I can install it, but, well.... its unstable so I don't think I am going to leave it installed. Here's the unstable version page from debian.org: http://packages.debian.org/sid/libltdl3

    Hi,

    It's really simple:

    cd /usr/lib
    sudo ln -s libltdl.so.7 libltdl.so.3

    Thanks for your reply, I thought it was something like that that you did.

    However, this method doesn't work for me, I'm guessing it's because I'm trying to install a .deb package and it looks in a database for installed packages or something, but I don't really know why this happens.

    When I try to install my package with the package installer, I get the following error (after doing your method):
    Code:
    Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libltdl3
    Did you use your method to install a .deb package? If so, how did you do it? Is there some additional step I'm missing?

    Cheers

    Re: libltdl3 in 8.10

    Perhaps I wasn't clear...

    Since I had the file libltdl.so.7, I thought it was obvious I had installed the libltdl7 package.

    You can install that package directly via apt-get, it's an Intrepid one and is located in Ubuntu mirrors (check here).

    After I installed the package, I've just linked the library like I said before.

    Well I already had libltdl7 installed, that's why I tried your method, but it did't work... That's why I was asking if you were using this method to install a .deb package or some other sort of program distribution style.

    Re: libltdl3 in 8.10

    What exactly didn't work?

    The symbolic linking or the program depending on libltdl.so.3?
