I recently purchased some plugins to help with a development project I’m working on. Well, to register and decrypt the plugins, I had to run an application that required the libstdc++.so.5 library which has long been deprecated. I found some help from the following web site however:
Here’s the magic to get this to run.
dpkg-deb -x ia32-libs_2.7ubuntu6.1_amd64.deb ia32-libs
sudo cp ia32-libs/usr/lib32/libstdc++.so.5.0.7 /usr/lib/
sudo ln -s libstdc++.so.5.0.7 libstdc++.so.5
I’ve made a slight adjustment to the commands above to make reference to the Ubuntu 10.04 directory structure of /usr/lib instead of the /usr/lib32
Good luck geeky people!
