error while loading shared libraries

Post by erichmond » Wed Oct 21, 2020 4:27 am

I'm not sure this is the right forum, but here it goes. I moved VMWare + Ubuntu + ABINIT from my old Windows 10 laptop to my new Windows 10 Workstation laptop using PC Mover by Laplink. I then upgraded VMWare to Workstation Pro 16 and Ubuntu to Ubuntu 20.04. ABINIT was working until I tried to run a program using the command abinit.
abinit<slabbulkPdslab11layer092820.files> log092820-11
The input file is attached. After I hit Enter, I received the following error message - "error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory".

I am quite lost as to what the error message is telling me to do. Can someone help?

Dear Eric,
I think you need to recompile Abinit because it looks like the path for the libraries have changed in your Ubuntu...
Best wishes,
