I am trying to install hacketyhack software:

But i get an issue when installing thir script, cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I checked in synaptics and it is already installed, do you have any advice?

I'm on Ubuntu 12.04.

Are you running a 64bit version of Ubuntu? If so than you need to install the 32bit version of libjpeg via this command

sudo apt-get install libjpeg62:i386

It seems hacketyhack uses the 32bit version of libjpeg

That worked perfectly on 64bit Linux Mint. – Stephan Kristyn Sep 11 '13 at 21:13
For me this doesn't work (I have Ubuntu 14.04). Apt-get says: "libjpeg62:i386 is already the newest version. libjpeg62:i386 set to manually installed." When I try to locate the file I get: locate /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ I need the file to import caffe in python. Can I somehow point python to the file? – mcExchange May 19 '15 at 16:51
