I have installed Fatrat in Lubuntu/LXDE and it would not initiate.

--- I have it in the menu, even added the rat to the launch bar, trying to run it in grun, it would not start, just the processor seems to work 3 seconds and then nothing. - Runing fatrat -f in terminal gives:

fatrat: symbol lookup error: fatrat: undefined symbol: _ZN10libtorrent7sessionC1ERKNS_11fingerprintEii

(A description of the app here)

Is it because Fatrat is based on QT library?

How could I make it work in Lubuntu?

I think it refers to a problem with the libtorrent library. – Cumulus007 Aug 3 '12 at 23:40
what's libtorrent? should i uninstall it? i've seen it in synaptic . do i need it to use my default qbittorent? – cipricus Aug 3 '12 at 23:48
Could you post the output of apt-cache policy libtorrent-rasterbar6 fatrat? – andrewsomething Aug 3 '12 at 23:58

Hmmm... Some how you have a newer version of libtorrent-rasterbar6 than is actually in the Ubuntu repositories. You should re-install it. – andrewsomething Aug 4 '12 at 0:11

this answer is in fact andrewsomething's comment that i post here as answer:

a newer version of libtorrent-rasterbar6 is actually in the Ubuntu repositories. So, the solution is to re-install it.
