Resolving Eagle CAD dependency problems under Ubuntu

This is a short post which I’ve made to show you how to fix dependeny problems of Eagle CAD under a 64-bit Ubuntu distribution. The current installer (Eagle CAD 6.4) works quite well under a 32-bit Ubuntu 12.04, 12.10 and 13.04 distribution. The eagle binary is linked against 32-bit libraries, so installing “all possible” 32-bit libs might be a possible (but uncomfortable) solution. This can actually be done by installing two packages:

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs lib32z1

A nicer way would be installing only the required libraries. The installer does not help you finding missing dependencies, so you have to actually extract the eagle binary by hand to inspect it. This can be done by modifying the installer or even faster by extracting the compressed files out of the installation script. I’ve prepared a short (compact) video tutorial on of the actual process. It’s my first video tutorial so please be indulgent. 😉

  1. So to make a long video short:

    sudo apt-get install libxrender1:i386 libxrandr2:i386 libxcursor1:i386 libfreetype6:i386 libfontconfig1:i386 libxext6:i386 libx11-6:i386 libxi6:i386 libssl1.0.0:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libgcc1:i386 libc6:i386 libc6-i386 libxfixes3:i386 libexpat1:i386 libxcb1:i386 libxdmcp6:i386 libxau6:i386
