DigiKam missing shared library libpulsecommon-13.99.so

Running Ubuntu 20.04 with updates and the snap version of Digikam, but after updates it does not run.

Dropping to the command line I get this error run running it:

qubes@qubes-Stardard-PC-Q35-ICH9-2009:~$ snap run digikam
/snap/digikam/16/usr/bin/digikam: error while loading shared libraries: libpulsecommon-13.99.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This error continues after a remove and install. When I do a snap connections digikam, there don’t seem to be any missing connections. Does this just require a new release/rebuild to link against new PulseAudio libraries?


i’d just do a snap revert digikam for the moment and wait til @sergiusens has fixed it :slight_smile:

This is strange, I use (and maintain digikam), here it is on a fresh kubuntu 20.04 install.

Can I see the output of cat /etc/os-release and snap version? The issue is with revision 16 of digikam? (This is the one that adds video support fwiw).

Also, thanks, I just noticed I have two copies of libpulse, time to trim the snap :slight_smile:

sergiusens@lothlorien:~$ snap run --shell digikam

This is Ubuntu 20.04. I’m confused as there seems to be 3 copies of the library inside the snap. Screen-shot with requested information:


that must be an ultra surround experience once it works :smiley:
