it doesn't find libAntTweakBar.so.1 even if I give rpath . and have it in the same directory:


Invoking: GCC C++ Linker
g++ -Wl,-rpath=. -L/home/michael/CPP64/AntTweakBar/lib -shared -o "lin.xpl"  ./main.o   -lopenal -lAntTweakBar -lcurl -lSDL -lGL
Finished building target: lin.xpl



michael@michael-ubuntu:~/X-Plane_10/Aircraft/General Aviation/MyPlane/plugins/myplane/64$ ldd lin.xpl
    linux-vdso.so.1 =>  (0x00007fffec1fe000)
    libopenal.so.1 => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libopenal.so.1 (0x00007f2c687b7000)
    libAntTweakBar.so.1 => ./libAntTweakBar.so.1 (0x00007f2c6851b000)



but my x-plane plugin loads fine if I do:


sudo cp libAnt* /usr/local/lib
sudo ldconfig -v


Why and how to use libAntTweakBar from my app directory?

Many thanks

This is normal UNIXy behavior. You can use RPATH to change the behavior, or dynamically lost the library using dlopen.

RPATH is usually avoided. If you need to install AntTweakBar locally instead of using system packages (system ones are highly preferable), dynamic loading is recommended.

Well I've tested it a while ago with sdl 1.2 (removed from /usr/*) and it loaded the libs from my app directory directly. So why doesn't rpath use anttweakbar likewise? Even ldd finds them.

Seems I need static linking?
