Local install - error loading libsymengine

Hi all,

Following the manual, I’ve installed deallii (via candi) and aspect on ubuntu 18.04. Everything appeared to have installed correctly, but when I try to run any parameter files I get the following error:

~/aspect/aspect-release: error while loading shared libraries: libsymengine.so.0.7: cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory

I can manually find the file within the dealii-candi/symengine-0.7.0 directory, so I’m not sure what needs to be done to have aspect find it as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated!


I faced the same issue. You may try this in the terminal

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/path to symengine installation/symengine-0.7.0/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

That worked perfectly. Thanks!
