Linux install:

Extracted the game to:

/home/name/archive/games/

16:00:57 ~/archive/games/reaper-0.98.2$ ./reaper
./reaper: error while loading shared libraries: libpng.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
16:01:35 ~/archive/games/reaper-0.98.2$

yet libpng is installed. As root i checked:

16:05:59 ~# pacman -S libpng
:: libpng-1.2.14-1: is up to date. Upgrade anyway? [Y/n] n
16:06:08 ~#

I'm using Arch Linux. Not that it should matter?

Native games such at ut2004 and quake3 run sweet on my system so hardware shouldn't be a problem.

    Just downloaded version 0.98.2 myself with the same error. Running Gentoo Linux on an AMD64 system. I tried linking /usr/lib32/libpng.so to /usr/lib32/libpng.so.2 but then I get a version error:

    [29 12:16:27] hw::gfx(0) Videomode: 1024x768 0 0 -1
    libpng error: Incompatible libpng version in application and library
    [29 12:16:27] test_main(0) Fatal: N6reaper3gfx15gfx_fatal_errorE PngLoadImage: While reading arrow: png read error
    [29 12:16:28] test_main(0)

     
  • I go the same exact error with the latest version of Reaper (0.98.2). I'm running 32bit Ubuntu 8.10 with libpng12 and libpng3 installed and with libpng.so.2 link in /usr/lib/ to no avail. The error now complains about a version mismatch.
