total Ubuntu noob here but I did try searching this forum and I couldn't find an answer to my question. I'm following this guide on installing FreeRDP from source and I've run into a roadblock after entering the sudo make installcommand in my terminal. I've interpreted the excerpt

Now create /etc/ld.so.conf.d/freerdp.conf and add the following line to it: /usr/local/lib/freerdp

to mean mkdir /etc/ld.so.conf.d/freerdp.conf/usr/local/lib/freerdp Yet when I input this commmand, I get the following error:

mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/etc/ld.so.conf.d/freerdp.conf/usr/local/lib/freerdp’: No such file or directory

Can anyone explain to me what to do next? Am I even interpreting the directions correctly?


The directory /etc/ld.so.conf.d/ should already exist: either use an editor to create the file

sudo nano /etc/ld.so.conf.d/freerdp.conf

and then enter the text /usr/local/lib/freerdp, save (Ctrl+O) and close (Ctrl+X); or use the command

echo '/usr/local/lib/freerdp' | sudo tee /etc/ld.so.conf.d/freerdp.conf
