Question Ldoce4

I want use LDOCE4 program from Pearson Longman, but getting error during start-up:

./ldoce4-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Searched for problem solutions and found only for Ubuntu by installing GTK-1.2 ...

Is is possible to install GTK-1.2 on FC12? How?

You could look for an rpm for it on rpm.pbone.net. I think you can install it, but it might not be wise to install it since the installation might make links to it that would cause programs other than LDOCE4 to use it.

We need an gtk expert to explain the current status of the libraries. On my FC12, I have libraries named libgtk-vnc, libgtk-x11, libgtkhtml etc. but no plain libgtk.

Re: Ldoce4

Of course you can have gtk in Fedora 12.

su -c 'yum install gtk+'
Most of the cases when someone claims fedora does not have package while ubuntu has is caused by the different package naming conventions.

Re: Ldoce4

Yes, but if the package is written for Ubuntu/Debian, at times, one has to symlink libraries to the new name. At any rate, one way to find out exactly what you need is to use the provides option

yum provides */ libgtk-1.2.so.0

In this case, lovenemesis has given the answer, but it's a handy option to have for future reference.

Re: Ldoce4

Hi ,
I solved it without installing this library.
Please create a file in /etc/ld.so.conf.d/ directory such as /etc/ld.so.conf.d/ldoce5.conf
put path of your ldoce5 in above file, then run as super user:
ldconfig -v
Then restart your compouter, Your problem will be solved!!!
