Is there a tool like Windows DependencyWalker for Ubuntu ? I would like to see all shared libraries my executable depends on.

In a terminal, execute:

ldd /path/to/your_executable


~$ ldd /bin/ls =>  (0x00007fff78fea000) => /lib/ (0x00007f1940858000) => /lib/ (0x00007f1940650000) => /lib/ (0x00007f1940447000) => /lib/ (0x00007f19400c4000) => /lib/ (0x00007f193fec0000)
        /lib64/ (0x00007f1940a99000) => /lib/ (0x00007f193fca2000) => /lib/ (0x00007f193fa9d000)
