jeff@Thor-KUBUNTU:~/Downloads/BOINC$ ./run_manager
./boincmgr: error while loading shared libraries: libwebkitgtk-1.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I am running BOINC on UBUNTU 18.x with no problems. It installed and ran straight away. I instaslled KUBUNTU 20.10 and tried to install but hit this roadblock. Is the path lacking, or am I missing a part of the program?

Thanks fr the help. I am not a expert in LINUX flavors so the solution might be my ignorance

Message 101411 - Posted: 1 Nov 2020, 8:13:21 UTC

Looks similar to problem I had when upgrading Xubuntu to 20.04 though mine was complicated by the fact that I had compiled my own manager and client.

Is the client running? Can you start it with

 sudo /etc/init.d/boinc-client start
I ended up using boinccmd to control the client till I eventually found a workaround.

Have a look at This thread and see if it has any clues.

On two machines, one I managed by compiling my own again, I was able to get it going, The others never got past the ./configure stage and I ended up using the self extracting one . This may be your best bet.

Same procedures as here:
https://boinc.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=14031&postid=101418#101418
Just uninstall and purge first, before reinstallation.

[quote
add the development repositories:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:costamagnagianfranco/boinc
sudo apt update
sudo apt install boinc
[/quote]

Didn't work in my case. I tried all the remedies in that post hence my trying the self extracting file. When work on that machine is all done I will do a clean install of 20.10 and roll my own again.

Message 101501 - Posted: 4 Nov 2020, 22:51:39 UTC - in response to Message 101407.  

Thanks all of you for the replies and suggestions. None of the suggestions changed the situation. Anyone else have an Idea? I looked at the other web pages suggestions and became confused by the suggestion that I 'roll my own'. If that is the next step, I will need someone to show me how to do it since Kubuntu is a foreign land to me. I do have the BOINC app running under the OLD Ubuntu system with no problems; it installed and ran right out of the box. This trial is a bit more complex, it seems. I just want to join in to the scientific efforts using my spare computer time/power

The documentation is way out of date for current modern distributions. Init.d is no longer used in most of the mainstream distros.

Systemd is now the service manager.

sudo systemctl start boinc-client


Is the correct command to use. Other commands are:

sudo systemctl stop boinc-client
sudo systemctl start boinc-client
sudo systemctl status boinc-client
sudo systemctl restart boinc-client

Message 101549 - Posted: 11 Nov 2020, 5:08:06 UTC - in response to Message 101502.  

Again, thanks for the reply/help. unfortunately, I think I may have a configuration problem either in the BOINC download or the KUBUNTU system. the results returned when using the latest suggestion is as follows:

/home/jeff/Downloads/BOINC
jeff@Thor-KUBUNTU:~/Downloads/BOINC$ sudo systemctl start boinc-client
[sudo] password for jeff:
Failed to start boinc-client.service: Unit boinc-client.service not found.
jeff@Thor-KUBUNTU:~/Downloads/BOINC$ sudo systemctl status boinc-client
Unit boinc-client.service could not be found.
jeff@Thor-KUBUNTU:~/Downloads/BOINC$

Is there an installation step that I missed or executed in the wrong environment?

try going to /home/jeff/Downloads/BOINC and running the script that should be there

./
run_client


Then check using top whether it is running or not. Then
 ./run_manager
to start the manger.

Yes, Dave is correct with the local preface ./

I was responding as if you had installed BOINC in its default repo location of /usr/bin where the ./ local search would not have been needed.

If you are running the programs from your user /home location, you need to preface the commands with ./ to make the bash interpreter look in the current location first.

Message 101701 - Posted: 21 Nov 2020, 22:29:32 UTC - in response to Message 101555.  

Thanks for the suggestions. The results have not changed they are:

jeff@Thor-KUBUNTU:~/Downloads/BOINC$ ./run_client
./boinc: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.1.0.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
jeff@Thor-KUBUNTU:~/Downloads/BOINC$ ./run_manager
./boincmgr: error while loading shared libraries: libwebkitgtk-1.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
jeff@Thor-KUBUNTU:~/Downloads/BOINC$

where do I find the shared libraries "libssl.so.1.0.0" and/or "libwebkitgtk-1.0.so.0"??

Are they part of the OS or do I need to get them somewhere else outside of BOINC? How do I search for them in the OS (I am very unfamiliar with the OS)

Not sure how you are getting an SSL library issue with a 20.10 distro. Certainly is up to date. That distro should distribute openssl 1.1.1.1f
The libwebkitgtk error is caused by the old BOINC code.
ldd ./boinc

ldd ./boincmgr

You should get printouts of what libraries are missing. Look for "not found" entries.

Not sure what version of BOINC you are running and where you got it from. All the current versions are up to date and would have been compiled for the current shipping OpenSSL 1.1.1.1 library.

Also you should not be getting the WxWidgets error. In any case try installing this library for the Manager and running the ldd command against the Manager afterwards to see if that error is gone.

sudo apt install libwxgtk-webview3.0-gtk3-0v5


Your first post in this thread showed no SSL dependency errors, just the WxWidgets one. So you aren't running the same BOINC version that you started with I assume. What BOINC are you actually trying to run?

Message 101772 - Posted: 25 Nov 2020, 17:45:24 UTC - in response to Message 101702.  

Thank you for the suggestions and command recomendations
After running the "sudo apt install libwxgtk-webview3.0-gtk3-0v5" (ran without error), the ldd command produced "not found" for

libwebkitgtk-1.0.so.0 => not found
libpng12.so.0 => not found
I re-downloaded and ran the script for "boinc_7.4.22_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu.sh" and the errors still remain.

Message 101794 - Posted: 26 Nov 2020, 22:22:30 UTC - in response to Message 101772.  

It could be those libraries have been deprecated finally in the latest distros.

That old 7.4.22 should be removed from the download list. Long past due.

Try running the latest BOINC release from the ppa.

Message 101799 - Posted: 27 Nov 2020, 2:09:13 UTC - in response to Message 101794.  

thanks for the reply and suggestion. The site suggested did, indeed, download and start the BOINC package. When I enter 'boinc' in the console, it says it is already running.
This is what I was aiming to do. Now it shows as running in the processes list .

Now for a really stupid question.

How Do I get the program to show up so I can add tasks, etc? It is not on the desktop or in the icons at the bottom of the screen. Since I know it is running, I just need to find the ability to configure it.

I am sorry that I know so little as to the OS that I am running.. Th e previous UBUNTU system just ran and I just had it on the screen with no interaction; now I need to find it to get anything to display

Message 101808 - Posted: 27 Nov 2020, 16:38:07 UTC - in response to Message 101799.  

Assuming that the latest BOINC application from the ppa installs into Kubuntu in the standard location, you should have the Manager installed in the same place as the client.

That should be /usr/bin/boincmgr. Navigate to that location and run it in Console. That should start up the BOINC Manager and connect to the client. That should prove the Manager is connecting to the client.

I don't know KDE at all and can't offer any more suggestions. You need to make a desktop application so you can click the Manager to change settings and see the running tasks.

Ask for help in Kubuntu and KDE forums about how to create a desktop application for the Manager.

The manager is probably under the system menu for starting applications as it is with other desktop environments such as xfce which I use or gnome. It has been there with KDE distros I have used in the past though that is some years ago.

Message 101819 - Posted: 27 Nov 2020, 19:18:06 UTC - in response to Message 101810.  

There is no entry in any of the application windows. the system monitor says it is sleeping, waiting for something to happen with 2 threads and 0 % use cpu as user 47.7 sec and cpu use as kernal 58.8 the parent is plazmashell and the command line is /usr/bin/boinc, it's pid is 1921 and parent pid is 1348

it is running but needs me to tell it what to do. I just need to be able to access the program window to get it attached to some projects but there is no place that shows the window interface. If I run 'boinccmd' it shows command line arguments. Is there a GUI interface so that I can attach to the various projects?
