#1 Re: Salome-Meca installation » How to launch or uninstall Salome Meca 2018 in ubuntu 16.04 » 2018-12-02 13:58:43

This is a typical issue with outdated libraries. Other apps like Matlab have the same problem. The solution is to use the libraries present on the system instead of loading new ones. You can make this work on any ubuntu distro executing the command 

LD_PRELOAD='/usr/$LIB/libstdc++.so.6' ./salome 

This command preloads that library from the system and executes Salome. However I still get some warnings:

****************************************************************

     Module HYBRIDPLUGIN will not be available in GUI mode!

Matlab solves this kind of problems with libraries installing a package called matlab-support which is available on the Ubuntu Universe repository. Maybe the devs of Salome should consider a similar solution.

There are other ways to avoid packaging errors on linux distros. Like using appimages, snaps or flaptak files. Those 3 options are distro-agnostic and probably require less support on the long run. It would be great if you could create a package with any of them smile
