Fixing Cannot load XPCOM for nightingale on Ubuntu 10.04

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

Basically it can’t find the xulrunner libraries

running the ‘nightingale’ script as: strace -vv -ff sh -vex nightingale –debug 2>&1 showed me it was looking for and failing

finding that: smeacher@pandora:~/bin/Nightingale$ dpkg -S thunderbird: /usr/lib/thunderbird/ xulrunner-1.9.2-dev: /usr/lib/xulrunner-devel- xulrunner-1.9.2: /usr/lib/xulrunner-

So then add that path to that looked for via ldconfig (where to load/search for $LD_LIBRARY_CONFIG) sudo vim /etc/ add /usr/lib/xulrunner-

then run

sudo ldconfig to update this cache

You can also look here for a ppa:

except this package requires firefox (and I have UX installed), although it really only need xulrunner as shown above

so install without firefox via: aptitude download nightingale sudo dpkg -i –ignore-depends=firefox nightingale_1.11.0-80~lucid_amd64.deb
