In distros that use Apt (or the later and better Aptitude or Synaptic), using the command Apt get install *package* usually also installs any needed programs. T-Bird may not be available for Ubuntu 5.10, though I doubt it. Try Apt first. If that doesn't work, try this. Open another desktop, Google libstdc++.so.5.
These files are usually a part of another package.Download and install. This (multiple desktops) is one area Linux is ahead of Windows. Sometimes I have 3 or 4 workspaces open in a situation like this. I prefer RPMs when available. Good luck. chuck
apps from tar.gz.
I have tried to install Thunderbird-1.5 to Ubuntu Breezy 5.10 and get an error message that ''libstdc++.so.5 file is not found.''
Found article that stated file was at directory /usr/local/lib and should be in /usr/bin neither directory had file. Executed apt cache search and no file found.
Search of google searches and they only give substitute files from Red Hat and Mandrake.
Ftp searches do not have any ''so'' files.
I have tried locating other libstdc++ files without any success.Why are aps build without the depencies needed.
Is there any place that these libaries can be found. Is this one of those situations where we have to wait until the repositories offer the apps.
Thanks for the help
