not found on Ubuntu 14.04

I recently had an application that would throw this error when invoked:

error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The workaround is a symbolic link to .

In my case, this was the command that resolved the issue:

sudo ln -s /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

Your paths may be different, but hopefully this can get you on the right track.

Volti Under Ubuntu 14.04 on a ThinkPad T440s

I’ve recently been using Openbox on Ubuntu on my Thinkpad T440s and wanted to use Volti as my volume control with a Tint2 panel.  I had trouble though, I was getting this error:

[] can’t open Master control for card HDMI, trying to select first available mixer channel

[] can’t open first available control for card HDMI
error: list index out of range
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/usr/bin/volti”, line 53, in <module>
volti = main.VolumeTray()
File “/usr/lib/volti/volti/”, line 124, in __init__
self.watchid = gobject.io_add_watch(fd, eventmask, self.update)
TypeError: an integer is required

The solution lies in the Volti configuration file.  It is located at ~/.config/volti/config.

In my case, the issue was with the third line under [global], the card index value.  My default card_index was 0.  Changing this to 1 and saving the file fixed the issue.
