    Default Issue with feh

    Hi,

    I'm trying to make conky transparent using feh (found an article that showed me how to do it).

    I don't have root access so I installed feh in my home directory without any issues.

    But when I type feh in the terminal I get the following error.

    Code:
    feh: error while loading shared libraries: libgiblib.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or director
    I can find the library libgibli.so.1 in the directory (/home/me/my_programs/lib/) and I don't know why it's giving me this error.


    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    You have to set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable to point to the directory where you have those lib files.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply. Sorry I'm still very new to Linux, how do I actually do this?

    At the terminal:]
    Code:
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/me/my_programs/lib
    And, then, run the program from the same terminal.
