View Full Version : Emacs 23.2-19 error when running

Hi all,

An emacs error showed up again. After installing emacs i get following error:

$ emacs
emacs: error while loading shared libraries: libotf.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Any recommendations about a solution? I was looking online and it seems like the packages were fixed for this problem, but didnt seem to help here.

Do this as root:

yum install libotf

libotf is on the dependency list for emacs.

Either you didn't install Emacs from the repo OR you removed the library.

Any recommendations about a solution?

Don't do that ! Or if you want to install w/o repos - understand the issues.

yep the installation of libotf.so.0 worked and now emacs is able to load successfully.
