  • Hi all.
    when trying to run xvidcap i get the following msg

    "xvidcap: error while loading shared libraries: libpng.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

    what can i do ?

     
    • Hi,
      this is due to a faulty build system on one of my previous packaging systems. When building from source, this should not happen.

      For a quick fix, install libpng2. This, however, may result in problems when using pixmap themes in gnome. Building from  source is the cleaner solution.

      Karl.
