Trigger rally: error loading shared libraries


I am trying to run the computer game Trigger Rally, but it refuses to start. If I click the associated button on the applications menu, nothing seems to happen. From the menu editor, I see that the button runs «/usr/games/trigger-rally». Trying to run that command in a terminal gives me the following output:

[foo@bar ~]$ /usr/games/trigger-rally
/usr/games/trigger-rally: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Searching the web gave me no exact answer to what causes this error, although I found this page which discusses a possible similar issue. I quote:

Ok I get it. Gazebo tries to access the wrong lib version.

ls -l /usr/lib | grep tinyxml2
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root        16 Nov 18 17:46 ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root        20 Nov 18 17:46 ->
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root    100312 Nov 18 17:46

On my computer, I get this output:

[foo@bar ~]$ ls -l /usr/lib | grep tinyxml2
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root        17 jan.   2 07:17 ->
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root        21 jan.   2 07:17 ->
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root root     92320 jan.   2 07:17

I seem to have a newer version of tinyxml2. Apart from that, I seem to get the same output as «Julianoes». However, I don’t understand what he is pointing out that is wrong in his case. Hence, I also don’t know how to correct the error in neither his nor my case.

Any ideas, anyone?

Re: Trigger rally: error loading shared libraries ?
You'll have to rebuild that.

The /usr/games/trigger-rally is linked against an older version of
Do NOT add a symlink! If this is somehow a binary-only version of the game you can get the older library from the and LD_PRELOAD it or put it into a special location and add thet to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH
