How to fix “error while loading shared libraries:”

By | March 4, 2013

The following error came up when I tried to run Adobe Acrobat Reader on ubuntu 12.10

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

To fix this, simple install the package ia32-libs-gtk

$ sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-gtk

Now run the application again and the error should go away.

    You’re just about the only person to suggest this. It didn’t get LightTable to work on Ubuntu 13.04 but, it got me past the immediate problem, and right into the next one!

    Now, how do I fix a GTK warning!?
