Looks like [extra]/firefox is broken

Postby graysky » Tue May 02, 2017 5:53 pm

When I try to launch firefox on a RPi2, I get the following error but no browser window. Wonder if firefox needs to be recompiled against something newer?

Code: Select all
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/lib/firefox/libxul.so:
libicui18n.so.58: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.

I'm having the same problem.
What was the awnser? Recompile manually?

Edit:
More info:

$ firefox
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/lib/firefox/libxul.so:
libicui18n.so.58: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.

$ sudo pacman -Q firefox
firefox 52.0.2-1

$ uname -a

please decide if you trust or not this repo : http://popolon.org/depots/ArchLinuxARM/firefox/52/
if not : just wait for the fix.
if yes : read explainations of popolon here : http://popolon.org/gblog3/?p=857&lang=en
I followed this workaround, and it works fine in my system (except the rsync command : i needed to copy files directly to /usr/lib/)

So be carefull, do not break your system.
And finaly thanks to popolon.

Wow, tks!
That solved for me either.

As for the rsync... I think it would be better to do some minor changes...

cd /tmp
mkdir unarc; cd unarc
wget https://popolon.org/depots/ArchLinuxARM ... pkg.tar.xz
wget https://popolon.org/depots/ArchLinuxARM ... pkg.tar.xz
tar xf hunspell-1.5.4-1-armv7h.pkg.tar.xz 2> /dev/null # lot of errors with SCHILY.fflags will be displayed
tar xf icu-58.2-1-armv7h.pkg.tar.xz 2> /dev/null # lot of errors with SCHILY.fflags will be displayed
cd usr/lib
# sudo rsync -a libhunspell-1.5.so* libicu.so.58* /usr/lib/ (there's nothing starting with libicu.so.58 in this folder)
# sudo rsync -a libhunspell-1.5.so* libicu* /usr/lib/
sudo rsync -a icu/58.2 /usr/lib/icu/
sudo ldconfig


Tks sylvainlh44 and popolon.

I'm just going to giggle at this
PLEASE DON’T INSTALL THEM ... instead unarc them in a directory like this


Don't install the package, just dump it into a local directory, and then rsync it into your live /usr/lib ... you'll totally never have a problem with untracked files.

The proper way would have been to compile a version of each package with the appropriate package names and provides changes.

I switched over the midori-no-zeitgeist from the AUR and am really happy with it.
