Libncursesw.so.5: cannot open shared object file:

Recommended Posts

Hello, i recently got vps with Ubuntu 19.04 and i have successfully installed OGP in it. When i started MTA server x64 using it, I got following error in log file:

libncursesw.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
ERROR: Could not load ./x64/core.so
* Check installed data files.
Press enter to continue...

I checked google for all possible fixes but still i am getting this issue. I have already installed that required lib but its not helping at all. I also have installed 32 bit libraries, tried to install ncurses manually but same issue. Kindly help me with it.

apt-get install libncursesw5-dev

If that doesn't work, what is the output of:

ldd ./x64/core.so

Ok, from that ldd command i figured out i was still missing 32 bit libraries of libncurses. Since its ubuntu 19 so it is not possible to install them using apt-get install command directly. Although i installed it manually but yet i was missing them somehow. When i did apt-get install lib32ncurses, i couldn't get the package.
So i fixed it with following commands from a guide i found just now:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libncurses5:i386 libstdc++6:i386 lib32z1

Thanks for your support. You may close the thread now thanks.

Good afternoon, I also have the same problem with a VPS that I buy.

libncursesw.so.5: cannot open shared object file: no
such file or directory exists ERROR: Could not load ./x64/core.so

Using the steps given by Mubeen I could not solve my problem, can you help me?
