MX-Flash installer will not run

#1 Post by towwire » Wed Sep 02, 2015 1:53 pm

I get this when I try to run mx-flash: Cannot execute command ' mx-flash'.
and this:
towwire@mepis1:~$ su
Password:
root@mepis1:/home/towwire# mx-flash
mx-flash: error while loading shared libraries: libQtGui.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
root@mepis1:/home/towwire#

I tried reinstalling and the errors are the same. I show libQtGui.so.4 located here: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu

What does

Code: Select all

aptitude show mx-flash
report?

FWIW, it does work on my 64-bit M12 machine.

Since it's built on MX 14, and that is using a newer Qt 4 from wheezy-backports, you'll probably have to do the same upgrade in M12 to have it run.

It worked for me before also, I was just using it to see if there was an update to flash.
