Gentoo Linux package details for dev-qt/qtgui: v 5/ gentoo .. kde-apps / okular: Universal document viewer based on KDE Frameworks .. loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file. Is it possible to view djvu files using okular. If I open a djvu file with okular I get the error “cannot find plugin” I use ubuntu Thanks. Since upgrading to I am finding that Okular gives an error message on every file that I try open with it. I have just installed the latest.

This is not a satirical or circlejerk subreddit. Linux differs from the disgustingly proprietary operating systems like Windows and Mac OS by being open and freely influenced by anyone with the necessary desire and koular. We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:.
For expansions on the three basic rules, view the full rules page here. Discussion At last, I installed Gentoo. AKA Why you should use whatever distro you want. At last, I finally managed to make a proper installation of Gentoo that I could log into without chrooting yesterday.
I did try to give up on it early and installed Arch via chroot, which then gave me renewed confidence that if I did Arch then I could also do Gentoo, so I hopped back into my Ubuntu LiveCD environment and did it properly.
Lo and behold, it worked. I have no means with which to prove it because I did not get my internet to work and didn’t install X or anything of the sort, and I’m too lazy to mount stuff again right now just to download screenfetch or some such.
So you’re gonna have to just take my word for it.

Anyway, while I should probably have seen that coming from miles away, it simply is not a openn for me – it’s just a little too complex for my liking keeping in mind that I’m just a home desktop user, not managing a cluster of hardened servers, which is probably where Kkular shinesand while I see its appeal, it’s way too complicated for me to be comfortable with, and I’d certainly miss a lot of features from Arch the distro I used grntoo use for months up until this point such as pacman or the AUR – Portage overlays don’t feel nearly as convenient.
Really, Portage itself doesn’t feel as convenient, even though I realize it’s much more powerful than pacman. It’s not a bad distro by any means, but it’s just not for your typical home user – “install Gentoo” memes aside. Sure, I could go in there, fix my internet connection and finish up this installation, but if I’m gonna feel like I’m constantly wrestling with the OS rather than working with it, then what’s the point? We all could be on Linux From Scratch or whatever else is the gnetoo hip Slackware or Debian probablybut there’s a reason why so many different distros with wildly different goals, philosophies configurations, unique features etc.
If you are an at-home Gentoo user who enjoys all its features and advantages, then more power to you, you are officially smarter than me with Linux. But for everyone else, while it’s good to venture out and see how things work for yourself, it’s best that you stay with whatever fits you the most, whether it’s Ubuntu, Arch, Fedora, Debian or whatever else the hell you come across.
If nothing else, I learned how to properly install things via chroot which is probably fairly valuable by itself I mean I did do that while installing Arch but in all honesty I had little idea what I was doing gengoo.
So even though I’m gonna end up going full-circle and installing Arch again, I learned a lot more about how the install process works, which might damn well help me later down the line. But that’s just a nitpick really. The thing about your post is how i felt when i installed arch and went back to kubuntu. Installed it, okulxr it, but dont have the time to invest in installing it again, okilar im happy using kubuntu: I suggest you try Funtoo, the guide is more straight forward than the Gentoo install guide, and configuring use flags and options is made easy with a build program to choose setups, my Funtoo setup is set specifically for AMD piledriver CPUs and okularr gnome desktop.
Also it’s already set up to use gnome 3 without systemd. I installed it on my desktop because gentoo refused to work on my desktop even with genkernel, funtoo works perfectly, the included kernel configs work great after some debloating and epro is awesome. I use Gentoo on my laptop though, as I didn’t have any kernel problems with it. In the end you learned something. That’s the entire reason for doing just about anything I use Gentoo as a home user. A source-based system is the only way to keep your system relatively clean of ridiculous Freedesktop stuff by electing to not use it as a compile-time dependency.
I cringe every time I try another okulsr and seemingly have xannot install 20 unrelated gnome dependencies for every single desktop app. KDE5 is a big offender in how it works, which also includes all the applications that “fall under it”, having to install polkit, genntoo, consolekit and a specific window manager in order to just run a music education tool is hilarious.
[Bug 225937] New: Okular Cannot Open Gutenberg.org ePub
Nothing Gentoo can do against that, it can’t be disabled at compile time. Yes, this is why I avoid KDE apps on any distro like the plague. I’m sure some of the programs themselves are nice, but I don’t want to install an entire DE just to run some tiny little app.
I don’t disagree at all, but my brain says otherwise when I see all this extra stuff being installed. I personally just installed almost all the desktop environments and window gfntoo, because why not?
I have an entire terrabyte on my new hard drive, and I have no idea how to use it all. I tried installing Okular for gntoo pdfs even though it came with a bunch of dependencies.
Opening Okular also opened some KDE dependencies including some kbuildsyscoca4 process that keeps popping up in my terminals. Closing Okular left those processes running. A lot of their background processes need help from any developer interested, overly complex and bit-rotting code is not something KDE deserves. As a proud KDE user I cant do without the customization most of those dependencies should really be made optional.
For example, I wanted to install kdeconnect’s command line tool on my server running debian. Wouldn’t let me unless I installed a bunch of X11 and kde dependencies. I ended up using notify instead. Instead of providing a prebuilt package, it has scripts to download and build the package for you. The advantages are in the customizability because you can have very fine grained control over exactly what features are compiled into packages.
Most binary distros tend to compile software with every possible feature enabled. I’d say Gentoo is great for people who want things built a specific way, and who don’t mind working a bit to get it that way. Gentoo is great for me, but the beauty of linux is that you can work with whatever kind of system you feel like. It’s surely pretty obvious? Gentoo allows you to choose certain things that a binary system can’t and as an added-side effect since you’re compiling from source anyway you get processor-specific optimizations for free.
Any binary system would basically force me to have polkit, consolekit, Okluar, PAM, initramfs and what not installed, things which in my opinion have zero use for a single-user computer and are also poorly engineered and known to lock your system with silly race conditions. Gentoo allows me to keep those out. My favorite was finally removing all the boot cruft. As you can clearly see, util-linux has the pam USE flag.
Inside the dependencies in the ebuild: Yeah I probably should have guessed that On a side note, what about dbus? It seems to be a hard dependency of xfce4-session, sadly I remember when arch used openrc.
Nowadays arch is just opfn clusterfuck of shit just my opinion of course, not a fact, no systemd isn’t the only reason. It’s what made me switch to Gentoo. Apart from the “ohhh hooocpu optimized binaries”cannott the “ooohhh hoooo, only uses kb of disk in ultra light packages”, my reason is so that i never have to deal with things like this this is just an example:.

Of course you could understand that i was talking about having packages compiled to the libraries you have in your system, as opposed to having them compiled against the libraries on the build machine, that can have different libraries cannkt the ones you have on your machine.
As a 10 or 15 year long gentoo user who’s been among a moderately short list of individuals with speaking privileges in the gentoo dev channels on freenode in the past becoming proficient with gentoo didn’t come easy at first but dedication to keep trying will reward you should you choose to be persistent: I use Arch on my home machine. I had installed that machine six months ago.
I do enjoy Arch. I once tried installing Gentoo and gave up midway because it turns out I don’t have the time and patience for it. On my work computer I have Ubuntu But people also do LFS and to those I say: To each one their own! The point is that you have so many distros that you can choose that one that fits your taste or that which you like the philosophy of.
Nice, I tried to install gentoo in a vm a long time ago, but accidentally downloaded the wrong tarball, you would think they would tell you which one applies to an intel bit processor, but instead they confuse you to heck with weird architecture names? Anyways, I use Ubuntu, but I’m going to transition to Arch soon, I just have to do it when school is over for the year and I have time to burn, but I completely agree with you on that, there are different distros for a reason pick the one that works for you and use it.
I personally want Arch because the AUR would be a time saver for me because I constantly find myself compiling packages and mucking up my home directory with git repos, so I want to start fresh, and I also want updated packages because occasionally I run into issues with that as well.
I tried Gentoo back in the Only stage3-i and stage3-i IDK, I am trying to do this in a virtual machine just gentoo prove I can and that I’m not an idiot when it comes to CPU architectures, but the wiki provides no help on this at least that I can find I have to agree, in a plain HTML type file list cannnot can be awkward to actually see the file you want.
