It doesn't work for me

Asked by Pierce March on 2012-01-06

This app doesn't work for me. Here is the error it gives me:

/FreeFileSync$ ./FreeFileSync
./FreeFileSync: error while loading shared libraries: libunity.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I am kind of new to Linux. Here are the steps I took:
 I tar extracted the files in /opt/

changed chown -R * for user:user and
chmod -R 744 *

then attempted to execute the ./FreeFileSync

What is exactly the libunity.so.6?

I already have the following installed:
libunity-misc0 and libunity4

Do I need to install another libunity in order for this app to run?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Pierce, StepNjump

It seems the problem is caused by Unity 5.0. You can uninstall it or create a link to newest version of the library (dirty solution):

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libunity.so.9 /usr/lib/libunity.so.6

Last month I removed the package and today, just reinstalled it for a try. Works like a charm. Thanks for your help txelu.

Step.
