I have problem with Vice C64 emulator (runner). I have .tap with Giana Sisters game, but when I try
run this game log says:
Running /home/maciek/.local/share/lutris/runners/vice/bin/x64 -chdir /data/Programy/Commodore 64 -VICIIdsize -sdl2renderer opengl /data/Programy/Commodore 64/Giana Sisters.tap
/home/maciek/.local/share/lutris/runners/vice/bin/x64: error while loading shared libraries: libreadline.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I have libreadline .so.7, but symbolic link from it doesen’t work. This is independent if I have in settings “use system libraries” on or off.
Please help, i love this old game
having a very similar issue with my vice plus/4
/.local/share/lutris/runners/vice/bin/xplus4: error while loading shared libraries: libreadline.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I have searched for the file, which does exist
any clues on how to fix?
I’m into retro games myself. I own a real C64C (and an Amiga 500).
I’m currently building a box which will let me connect a C64/Amiga joystick to a PC’s USB port so I can use it to play on Vice too.
Regarding your problem:
If the emulator can’t find the ones provided by Lutris you could try to install the package:
sudo apt-get install libreadline6
32bit multi lib:
sudo apt-get install libreadline6:i386
I don’t know what distro you are running, I’m not using Ubuntu so I cannot test the above…
you could try to install the package
That won’t work unless you’re on 16.04: https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=libreadline6
Then maybe adding these to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable? Bit weird though, as the are provided by Lutris and xplus4 is started from Lutris, one would expect these paths should be available already…
On Xubuntu 20.04. Vice runner is also broken for me. The above suggestions didnt work??
error while loading shared libraries: libreadline.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
OK made progress. I had to symlink to libreadline.so.8.0
now I get Exit with returncode 132
Same issue here; libreadline6 is no longer available from my repos.
I compiled up (with all options) and dropped in a replacement VICE.
As of version 3.4, it drops x64 as the default executable, and we have x64sc and instead.
GTK3 compiled version doesn’t understand the -sdl2renderer flag any more, amongst others.
Unknown option ‘-sdl2renderer’.
Error parsing command-line options, bailing out. For help use ‘-help’
Seems like the runner options need updating, but against what build version?
“error while loading shared libraries: libreadline.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory” on Linux Mint 20. Any help is greatly appreciated.
@Terrum what is the result of this command line:
