Error while loading shared libraries: libQtWebKit.so.4

I have Fedora 16 x86_64 (Xfce) on my laptop where I am trying to run a small program to view medical information stored on an SD card. To install the program I used a script provided at Sourceforge:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/slee...eleases/Linux/

The script worked fine, but when I try to run the program I get:

Code:
error while loading shared libraries: libQtWebKit.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
There is a previous thread in these forums:

http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showth...bQtWebKit.so.4

Where it was explained that libqtwebkit.so.4 is actually a symlink to the real library file. However, the thread ended when the original poster discovered that he had some misconfigured packages and that fixing them resolved the problem for him. Everything on my computer is fine, so there is nothing to fix.

The above thread also said that libqtwebkit.so.4 was provided by qt-x11. I already had the 64-bit version of qt-x11 installed, but I installed the 32-bit version as well. Still no joy.

I am out of ideas. I really need this program. Can someone offer some suggestions? Please?

Try installing gtwebkit:
Code:
BASH:~/-> yum provides */libQtWebKit.so.4
  ---<snip>---
qtwebkit-2.2.1-2.fc16.i686 : Qt WebKit bindings
Repo        : updates
Matched from:
Filename    : /usr/lib/libQtWebKit.so.4

Try installing the qtwebkit package. It contains that library. I found it with:

yum provides */libQtWebKit.so.4

I see PabloTwo found it faster.

Re: Error while loading shared libraries: libQtWebKit.so.4

Thanks PabloTwo and JEO. I already had the 64-bit qtwebkit package installed, so I installed the 32-bit version. It insisted on installing 50 MB of additional 32-bit stuff (grrr), but I went ahead. Problem solved. Now the application launches and runs fine.

Re: Error while loading shared libraries: libQtWebKit.so.4

I'm bumping this old thread to say that it solved my problem starting digikam with Fedora 18 (also using Xfce).

I was getting the same error ("error while loading shared libraries: libQtWebKit.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.").

Like the OP, I found earlier threads but could not solve the problem.

In my case, neither version of the qtwebkit package was installed. I installed qtwebkit with:

sudo yum install qtwebkit

digikam is now working. Thank you!
