View Full Version : Gnucash in F7

Gnucash worked fine in F6. In F7, it was missing a couple libraries which I installed, but still, when I try to run it I get:

ERROR: In procedure open-file:
ERROR: No such file or directory: "/usr/share/guile/1.8/slib/require"

Any ideas what to do about this?

Fixed! Just needed to create a link to the folder where slib actually is now, which I believe is /usr/share/slib. Easy.

I'm having a similar problem. I'm getting:
gnucash-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libgtkhtml-3.8.so.15: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Another thread indicated that this could be fixed by installing g-wrap & g-wrap-devel, but still no joy.

Thanks in advance

Yep, had that problem too. If you use yum to install gtkhtml2, I believe it will go away.

Gnucash installed in FC6 with everything it needed. Doesn't it do that in F7?

I'm not sure what happened, but it worked fine in F6, but not after upgrading to F7. Perhaps the upgrade moves the slib folder, and deletes those libraries for some reason? I dunno.

I have checked that gtkhtml2 is installed, and added gtkhtml2-dev, but gnucash still comes with the error:
gnucash-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libgtkhtml-3.8.so.15: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

Thanks in advance

Perhaps you could try installing the file here: http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=libgtkhtml-3.8.so.15 . In retrospect, I think that may have been what I did to fix the problem after all.

I found solve on my Fedora 7 (on OSConvert's problem):

yum install gtkhtml38
yum install libgsf-gnome
yum install goffice

and GnuCash now already works :-)
Hope it helps.

I spent a couple of hours downloading via dialup, gnucash 2.0.5, docs, Perl(Finance::Quote), perl(Date::Manip) and then used software update to get the rest. Gnucash works, but why was it not included in the DVD?

This worked for me - I've now got gnucash working!

Thank you kc8ukw and others for your help. :)

None of the above solutions have worked for me. :(


gnucash-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libgtkhtml-3.8.so.15: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

yum update -y gnucash guile-devel got closer:

gnc.bin-Message: main: binreloc relocation support was disabled at configure time.

ERROR: In procedure open-file:
ERROR: No such file or directory: "/usr/share/guile/1.8/slib/require"

yum install -y guile-devel gtkhtml38 libgsf-gnome goffice

still didn't work. ln -s /usr/share/guile/1.8/slib /usr/share/slib changed the error to:

ERROR: No such file or directory: "/usr/share/guile/1.8/slib/mklibcat"


http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=libgtkhtml-3.8.so.15 did not work, links to the library seemed to be broken.


yum install g-wrap g-wrap-devel
didn't help.

Any other ideas? I've had small issues with fc upgrades before, but never the number of issues I've had going from fc6->fedora-7.
