Skype problem

Postby Acetilene » Tue Apr 16, 2013 1:52 pm

Hi guys! I have tried to install Skype from ports. The build process is finished without any problem, but when I try to start the program nothing happens... In terminal I can see this error:
Code: Select all
[damiano@ghost /usr/home/damiano]$ skype
/usr/local/share/skype/skype: error while loading shared libraries: libfreetype.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Any idea?

how did you install your ports on FreeBSD? Did you use the tar file or portsnap?

It look like your missing freetype. Try in terminal:
Code: Select all
pkg_info | grep freetype


I don't now which one you need to install, but try those in order.
print/freetype2
print/freetype

if the ports is install
Code: Select all
make deinstall clean && make reinstall clean


Tips for you to save time instead of doing make install clean do a make config-recursive install clean it will bring all configuration window first after it will compile.

I have upgraded freetype2 and installed freetype, but nothing is changed... This is very strange! I have always installed ports with portsnap and on ghostbsd 3.0 with LXDE I didn't found any problem with skype... (now I' m working on the Gnome 2 edition)

You might try to install the default release ports. http://wiki.ghostbsd.org/index.php?titl ... ase_Method

I don't understand...
Code: Select all
portsnap fetch && portsnap extract
isn't the default way to get ports?

Yes its the default way to get ports, but you get the latest ports revision. By using the updated ports you will get some conflict if the all the software in your system is not all to date to that ports. GhostBSD is build over the release ports.

I have install Skype on updated package. It work great, but I might have to try an outdated package system.

I have try with portinstall from portupgrade and it work.

This is what i did:

Code: Select all
portsnap fetch extract

Code: Select all
cd /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/portupgrade
make config-recursive install clean

In the same time I downloaded and installed src.txz because some ports need that.
Code: Select all
fetch ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/releases/i386/i386/9.1-RELEASE/src.txz
tar -xz -C / -f src.txz

When all was install I did.
Code: Select all
porinstall -rc skype

all work perfectly.
