Problems during argos installation

Postby sissi961 » Mon Oct 04, 2021 4:14 pm

I installed argos following the guide on the github repository. But when I try to run an experiment it gives me the following error " argos3: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.". And I didn't succeed in resolving it. Thank you :cry:

I usually advise against installing ARGoS from the sources – do you have a specific reason why you did it by hand instead of using the precompiled packages?

That error can be solved with the following steps:
  1. Make sure that you performed sudo make install
  2. Make sure that the folder /usr/local/lib/argos3 is not empty
  3. Make sure the file /etc/ exists and it contains /usr/local/lib/argos3
  4. Run sudo ldconfig, which will make sure your linker looks into /usr/local/lib/argos3 (provided the check at 3. succeeds)
I made ARGoS.
