Hi I’m sorry for asking, but I have a problem with running SynthV (especially the newest build) on Linux Mint. The problem seems to be that “SynthV” get interpreted as an “application/xsharedlib”.
(The make the file executable is checked in the permissions tab)
I’m new to Linux and in the previous build (014) I found out that adding the .sh after the name on the “synthesizer-v-editor” lets you run it (double clicking on it). However this method does not work with the newest build.
I’m really sorry, but could anyone provide any help, because what I find in other Linux forums still confuses me a bit. Thank you
I had the exact same problem you are having right now (it’s missing package). I fixed it by installing libcurl-compat package but I am on Manjaro and i don’t know if Linux Mint has the same package. I hope this was usefull information.
Check if any of these packages are installed, if not install them
Since there are libcurl4 and libcurl3 try with v.4 first but it’s probably not going to work. then try v.3
Also try launching from terminal with LD_PRELOAD, that fixed it for me but I had to install the libcurl-compat package first…
If all fails experiment in virtual machine with debian stretch, it’s always better to use the stable version with non-rolling release distros (because some packages are missing in buster currently) or some other distro.
The solution suggested is cumbersome. The synthesizer-v-editor itself should be fixed to work both libcurl.so.3 (on old OSs) and libcurl.so.4 (current OS releases), so that it would work out-of-box. This is reasonable, since Synthesizer V download for Linux says Ubuntu is the target OS. It, however, works with neither of current Ubuntu production releases (220.127.116.11 and 18.10). It worked on 18.104.22.168 but that release is no longer available.
Yes. It would work. Thanks for information that the libcurl3 needs to have its dev package installed. I couldn’t find libcurl3 for Ubuntu 18.10 anymore as you pointed out. So I stopped there. I would also need to install gcc and make, etc., wouldn’t I? The regular “normal installation” doesn’t come with any dev packages or tools.
You could try to search and download the deb packages from https://www.debian.org/distrib/packages.
When you run sudo dpkg -i libcurl3_xxxx.deb It may show that some dependent libs are missing. Just search them on the above url again…
