    Loek - 2008-12-16

    I've installed bluezync4thunderbird 0.16 on Ubuntu 8.10. I resolved the missing libxpcom.so by installing libxul-dev  but now I'm stuck.
    ldd libBlueZync.so  still tells me libbluetooth.so.2 => not found

    libbluetooth.so.3 is installed and normal bluetooth connections are going fine. Trying to install so.2 alongside with the package manager throws an error:

    libbluetooth2:
    Package libbluetooth2 has no available version, but exists in the database.
    This typically means that the package was mentioned in a dependency and never uploaded, has been obsoleted or is not available with the contents of sources.list

    Maybe that's not advisable anyway?

    How should I continue? Will a bluezync built from source work with libbluetooth.so.3 ?

    Thanks for any advice!

      Hi,
      I would not try to try any further to get blueZync 0.16 to work on Ubuntu 8.10.
      Current SVN "should" work with Ubuntu 8.10, although I have only tried with 8.04.

        Should the SVN build work with calendar version 0.8 or even 0.9, or should I stick to 0.7 as mentioned here? http://www.kaarposoft.dk/bluezync/compatibility.html

        Thanks,
        Loek

          Hi,
          blueZync SVN should work with 0.7 or 0.8, but NOT 0.9.
          So, install calendar 0.7 or 0.8, and compile blueZync.
          At runtime, blueZync will work with the calendar version it was compiled for.

            Hi,
            Latest version out of SVN should now support Sunbird/Lightning 0.9.

      Henrik,

      Thanks for your reply. I will try building bluezync from svn and report back here later.

      I have the same problem as loek as libbluetooth.so.2 is missing. I have lightning 0.9 installed. and I followed the instructions at http://bluezync.kaarposoft.dk/0.1.6/manual.html#manual_installation

      ldconfig -p | grep bluetooth                                                                                                     
              libbluetooth.so.3 (libc6) => /usr/lib/libbluetooth.so.

      Any suggestion how I can solve this. Should I build it and not use the package provided. If so how can I remove the existing installation.

      Thanks

      Peter

        I have the same problem. I don't have libbluetooth.so.2 but libbluetooth.so.3. And I'm missing libxpcom.so
        What to do?
