Error while loading shared libraries created by myself.

  • I create a shared library and successfully build in QT GUI. I want to run the excutable file in the terminal, but I get the error:

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

    I can run normally in the QT GUI, but can not run in the terminal, and get the above error. So what should be the reason for that? Something is wrong when I create the lib?
    My operation system is :ubuntu 14.04

    everything is ok i think
    It just cannot find
    so is this your lib ?
    and if you do "locate"
    where is it then ?

    Also try ldd on your exe and see

    Its important to understand that your exe NEEDS the Qt so files
    to run
    Look in linux section.
    "Linux GCC 32-bit and 64-bit compilers:"

  • @mrjj thanks for your reply, I just find the method, I need to set the environment variable, LD_LIBRARY_PATH. After setting that, I can run it on terminal. Thanks anyway!

    Ok. super. Well you need such folder if u plan to give programs to others.
    And yes LD_LIBRARY_PATH and rpath is how one can do it.

    hi,i meet the same problem as you,can you detail how you solve this problem?

    bascially, you include the needed SO files etc and do

    cd /mnt/xx/theprogfolder
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./

    its shown in
    section Creating the Application Package

    This is best used for testing. the rpath way is better for real deployment.
    or so i have been told.
