When attempting the Ubuntu HTML5 tutorial on the Ubuntu site, I have just created the template app and am attempting to run it. When I run it, I get this error:

Starting ubuntu-html5-app-launcher --www=/home/shah/Code/qrcode-scanner

/usr/bin/ubuntu-html5-app-launcher: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory ubuntu-html5-app-launcher exited with code 127

I am not sure how to resolve this and I cannot find any threads with fixes regarding this problem. I have tried a sudo apt-cache search libQt5Core which indicates libqt5core5 but I already have that installed, so I'm wondering if something else is wrong.

@DavidPlanella ? Shah, do you have the /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ file? – Wilf Jan 31 '14 at 21:16
@wilf - That file isn't there, I did a locate and found it here: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/. I'm using 64 bit Ubuntu. – Mendhak Jan 31 '14 at 21:23
Oh sorry, mine was for 32bit, not 64bit - though if the Qt Creator is 32bit version... you could try sudo cp /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ - as this a library file, it should not cause any damage if it is also elsewhere (hopefully) – Wilf Jan 31 '14 at 23:08

It should be fixed now, it was a packaging issue.
