fwbuilder binary does not start. Error "fwbuilder: error while loading shared libraries: libfwbuilder.so.0: cannot load shared object file: no such file or directory."
Then the GUI binary (fwbuilder) cannot find API library libfwbuilder. If you are using our binary packages, then make sure you download and install package called libfwbuilder. If you compiled from sources, then perhaps you installed libfwbuilder with default prefix /usr/local/, therefore library went to /usr/local/lib. Dynamic linker ldd cannot find it there.
You have the following options:
create environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH with value /usr/local/lib and run fwbuilder from this environment.
add /usr/local/lib to the file /etc/ld.so.conf and run ldconfig so it will rescan dynamic libraries and add them to its cache.
recompile libfwbuilder and fwbuilder with prefix /usr/, this will install libfwbuilder.so.0 in /usr/lib. ldd will find it there without any changes to environment variables or /etc/ld.so.conf file. To change prefix you need to run autogen.sh with command line parameter "--prefix=/usr". Do this both for libfwbuilder and fwbuilder.
