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.
