The end of the Linux version is near????

Post by HLarzac »

Hi,
I have a feeling that the Linux version of qDDB is about to end. I tried to install qDDB on different (.deb based) distro. Obsolete and no longer maintained libraries (e.g. libjepg.so.8, libpng12-0 and more) are always requested for subsequent installation. After a long search I got qDDB up and running on the ubuntu based Mintlinux. No chance with Debian-based variants such as Emmabuntüs (small ones for old laptops) or MX-Linux (currently very popular). What are your experiences like? I would find it a shame if the Linux version of qDDB would be leveled out or even discontinued. I reactivated my old eeePc and use it with MintLinux and qDDB (I would prefer a lightweight distro).
have fun with it.
Harald

Do you use 32 bits or 64 bits Linux ?

Maybe that those libraries on your system are 32 bits ?

Maybe an idea ?

I use 64bit Linux versions. But after I didn't find the missing libraries in the repos, I generally googled for them. Even there with moderate success. I could only find the missing files for Ubuntu (including MintLinux). In reality I didn't pay attention to 32 or 64 bit anymore, I wanted to get qDDB working somehow. With MintLinux 19.1 I also succeeded, but I have my concerns whether this will still be possible in future versions?
I would find it a shame if qDDB would no longer work under Linux because the suitable libraries can no longer be found.

I have the current linux x64 version 3.5.9 dashboard up and running on a Linux Mint version 19.2 ex window 7 laptop. It seems to work ok with a canon DSLR. Live mode look fantastic on the bigger screen. It takes photos and video no problem.

On my slightly newer windows 8 lappy also running mint 19.2 it is a different story.

I got over the missing shared libraries: libpng12.so.0: by searching and downloading from
http://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/amd64 ... 0/download I let the package manager install it.

Now I'm stuck on 'libjasper.so.1'

Code: Select all

 error while loading shared libraries: libjasper.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I have found some RPM packages that look similar but I don't want to risk downloading.

The mystery is why the different result on two similar machines runnig the same os.

Here is the system report (most of it) for the system with the missing library problem.
