I installed EMBOSS yesterday on a system running Ubuntu. I did the canonical './configure; make; sudo make install' and I didn't see any errors. However, today I ran getorf and got the following error.
/usr/local/bin//getorf: error while loading shared libraries: libacd.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I checked, and there is a copy of this file both in
/usr/local/lib. Indeed, when I linked
/usr/lib/libacd.so.6, it did not complain about this library any more--it complained about another one! How do the binaries know where to find the libraries? Is there some configuration or environmental variable I am not setting correctly?
I know that this question might be general to Linux/Unix, but I hope it's specific enough to EMBOSS to bring up in this community.
