So… I had to reinstall after a botched upgrade and that meant downloading xojo again. The old version ran great the new version… won’t even start so I am dead in the water as I can’t sort out the issue.
I am running Linux Mint 19.3 Tricia and the old version of xojo2019r3.1 ran fine, but like I said xojo2019r3.2… won’t start and it’s driving me crazy! Especially since I paid for the license to compile and I am in the middle of a project. According to the installer all dependencies are met. Here’s the error when I start from the CLI
libocci.so.10.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I am pulling my hair out as I can’t find an answer, let alone a solid reference to libocci.so.10.1…
i think that is a library used in conjunction with the Oracle DB Plugin (OraclePlugin.xojo_plugin). A workaround is for example removing the plugin from the Plugin Folder. - Or installing the needed Oracle Db library File from the Oracle Website.
I was thinking along these lines also. I just did not have time to test 3.1 on Mint 20 to confirm that this is a Xojo or a Mint issue. I actually suspect a Mint issue. There are a number of libraries removed from the Debian repositories (and Ubuntu), which would cause a ripple effect on Mint as well. Perhaps Xojo needs to update to newer libraries, perhaps there is a way to find and install the problematic dependencies manually. Either way, I haven’t had the time to investigate thouroughly.
Interesting. I downloaded the deb package and tried to install using the package installer. Either the deb package is missing some stuff, or the package installer is missing repositories to fetch dependencies.
So renamed them both - .Xojo-Old and Xojo-Old and then restarted the dev environment and viola’ everything except the binary build (compile) is working fine. I have a current license and I see it in the newly created .Xojo/Xojo/License Keys but I still can’t create a binary (compile) my project. So I am waiting for customer service/tech support to sort that out.
