libXm.so.3 and Fedora Core 7 - Where can I get it?

Postby normaldotcom » Tue Dec 25, 2007 6:13 pm

I am running Fedora core 7 (x86_64) and I installed the linux x64 driver for the space navigator. The install went fine, but then I tried to start

Code: Select all
/etc/3DxWare/daemon/3dxsrv -d usb


which returned

Code: Select all
/etc/3DxWare/daemon/3dxsrv: error while loading shared libraries: libXm.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory



I have tried finding libMotif3 packages for fedora which provide this file, but I have been unable to find any. I also attempted something I saw on another website which involved copying libttf.so.3 to libXm.so.3, which didn't do much of anything other than providing errors. Any help would be very nice!

Hi normaldotcom,

this post can give hints how to solve this problem. Or if you already have OpenMotif installed but in a newer version just link it like this user did:
Code: Select all
ln -s libXm.so.4 libXm.so.3

I tried creating that symblic link in /usr/lib/openmotif but even with that directory on my LD_LIBRARY_PATH it still did not work. When I made a link called libXm.so.3 in /usr/lib it worked correctly. Is there a reason the program looks only in /usr/lib instead of looking everywhere in LD_LIBRARY_PATH?

Thanks,

David
