Problems starting abiword 2.4.1

I recently installed upgraded abiword via pacman. After the upgrade, whenever I try to start abiword I get: "abiword: error while loading shared libraries: libgnomeprintui-2-2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory". So I tried reinstalling libgnomeprintui, but it still gives me the same error. Did anyone get the same error when they upgraded, and did you manage to fix it? If so, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Problems starting abiword 2.4.1

it probably has to do with your path. i'm assuming this because i had the same problem, but i don't have any other gnome apps installed, and thus i don't think it would be able to find libgnomeprint very easily.

i ended up deciding that i use openoffice more anyway ... even though it's a blasphemous 100mb

Check if you have:
/opt/gnome/lib
in /etc/ld.so.conf
If not, add it and run ldconfig as root.

Well, that was embarrassingly easy. roll One of these days, I'm really going to have to figure out what all of the files in the /etc directory do. Well, thanks for the fast response, I was kind of worried since I need to use AbiWord to type up my outline for school and really didn't want to install OpenOffice (100 MBs is just way too big -_-).

No problem. This should have been done when installing the gnome-common package. Maybe something went wrong when it got installed. :? BTW, is it installed?

I thought libgnomeprint(ui) had moved a long while ago from /opt/gnome to /usr and from extra to current for this. gnome-common isn't needed at all to get abiword working.

Seems libgnomeprint{,ui} weren't moved to /usr yet. Did that this morning, also moved libgnomeprint-cups and its dependencies to current with /usr prefix.

Re: Problems starting abiword 2.4.1

Yeah, I didn't have gnome-common installed since I wanted to have little gnome/kde stuff as possible, and it wasn't listed as a dependency for libgnomeprint. But now with the new libgnomeprint package, you don't have to do all that mucking around in the /etc folder (I just checked because I was bored tongue).
