nios2-elf-gdb: error while loading shared libraries: libncursesw.so.5: cannot open shared object fil

Jump to solution

Hi

When I try to use "Debug configuration" in eclipse when trying to run my niios application, I get the error message

 

Error creating session
nios2-elf-gdb: error while loading shared libraries: libncursesw.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
nios2-elf-gdb: error while loading shared libraries: libncursesw.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
nios2-elf-gdb: error while loading shared libraries: libncursesw.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

 

 

I do have libncursesw.so.5 but not in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ instead they are placed in /snap/core/10126/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

How do I get them from the /snap/core/10126/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ ?

If they should be in /snap/core/10126/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/, should I modify the LD_LIBRARY_PATH ?

LD_LIBRARY_PATH does not exist at the moment.

 

Regards

I'm using ubuntu 20.04. I ran:

 

sudo apt install -y libncursesw5

 

Worked like a charm after that.
