[Solved] Goldendict complains about missing shared libraries

I have installed the goldendict package from the community repo. When I try to launch it (from terminal), it complains about missing libeb.so.16. I cannot find a package in the official repos which provides that file. The libeb package in the AUR provides it. So I have installed it and tried to launch goldendict again. Now it complains about missing libavutil.so.55. I cannot find a package in either the official repos or the AUR that provides it (should be ffmpeg related).

Does anyone else have similar issues with the repo package? (Incidentally, I have tried the AUR package goldendict-qt5-git, but it also complains about missing libavutil.so.55.)

Thanks for your help.

Re: [Solved] Goldendict complains about missing shared libraries

The goldendict package in [community] depends on neither of these shared objects. Use lddtree (from the pax-utils package) to find out where these dependencies are coming from.

Re: [Solved] Goldendict complains about missing shared libraries

It does, however, depend on libavutil.so.56

So I'm thinking you've got huge issues with something from the AUR that has not been properly rebuilt.

Re: [Solved] Goldendict complains about missing shared libraries

Thank you both for your answers. I found the problem. Months ago, I had compiled goldendict with some custom patches for testing, and put the binary in /usr/local/bin and forgot about it. I should have used a PKGBUILD and pacman -U. Anyway, marking as solved.
