I am trying to install this software called Vlab. Its a Plant modelling software. I am following their instruction to install their software. After that if i run the command


which is supposed to start the application, it says

raja@raja-XPS-8300:~$ vlab-splash vlab-splash: error while loading shared libraries: libQt3Support.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I have all the dependencies installed. I have qt4-sdk qt4 creator. Help me fix this. Thanks

  • How did you determine that you have all the dependencies installed? The libQt3Support.so.4 library appears to be part of package libqt4-qt3support, which AFAIK is a dependency of the qt4 development packages (but not of the qt4 runtime framework) – steeldriver Jan 28 '16 at 2:46
  • I have libqt4-qt3support installed. Still it doesn't work. I also have qt4-dev-tools, qt4-sdk installed. Hence I assumed dependencies should have been met. Appreciate your help. – Raja Jan 30 '16 at 0:45

This might be because you have the 64-bit libqt4-qt3support libraries. Get the 32-bit libraries like so

dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update
apt-get install libc6:i386 libqt4-qt3support:i386
