Bug #2649

[rstudio-desktop]: error while loading shared libraries:

Iolo - about 4 years ago - . Updated over 1 year ago.

% Done:



After installing rstudio-desktop from pcr, I tried to run the program. I got the error message.

rstudio: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Peeking into the libraries on my machine, I saw that the version of that file is 1.72.0 and not 1.66.0, so it looks like the packaged rstudio is looking for an outdated library file.

  • Status changed from unconfirmed to confirmed

thanks for noticing - ima not even verify this one manually - the build date is Jan 2018; so it almost certainly needs re-building - it specifies a minimum 'boost-libs', but not a maximum; so we should probably pin this package to the current 'boost-libs' version

I try makepkg say that error:

Updated by theova almost 4 years ago

Newer version of rstudio-desktop depend on qt-webengine (see Packaging Request #1461: [rstudio] add to PCR).
As a result, rstudio cannot be updated to the newest version.

I tried to build rstudio version 1.1.463 - without success. I get the same error as you.

this one is being quite pesky - the 'boost_signals' problem remains - some have suggested that the lib has been renamed to 'boost_signals2'l but that gives the same error

in addition to the last version which was compiled against webkit (v1.1.463), i also tried the latest version (with webkit instead of webengine); but it has unsatisfyable dependencies from the AUR
