Cool! Released just on my birthday (wich was yesterday) ^^

However, I just tried tu build and install it from source (on a Jaunty 64), but when I launch synfigstudio I’ve this error:

“synfigstudio: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or director”

Maybe I didn’t remove right the 0.69 version, I did a “make uninstall” on ETL,synfig and synfigstudio (I kept the sources for that).
Should I have done something else to remove it completly?

I think that you have to do:

$ sudo ldconfig

to teach synfigstudio where to find the libraries.


Yep that was it, I did forget the last sudo ldconfig …
Now it works! Nice Splashscreen Genete, Congratulation for your art work !

Thanks for your help !!!

Hey congratulations on the release… this project is one of the most unique open source projects… How many are on the team…?
