*** Original post on bio 1931 by fozzy AT slogeeks.net at 2013-04-14 07:16:00 UTC *** Ubuntu 12.10 64bit My SO and myself have the *same* hardware, OS, etc. In fact, i installed them both. For some bizzare reason, i cannot start instantbird, not matter what i do on her system, while it runs fine on mine. This is the error when i run it from the command line. error while loading shared libraries: libpangoft2-1.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory I have been searching the net for months about this and nothing i have found or tried works.
