These were the only two libraries I needed to install to get it running on Ubuntu 20.04
sudo apt-get install libqt5websockets5
sudo apt-get install libqt5multimediawidgets5
Here’s an essential tip for finding the exact name of the library you’re looking to install using apt:
When you get an error message like this:
error while loading shared libraries: libQt5WebSockets.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
You know that you need to install this somehow, but the problem is, it’s not named exactly “libQt5WebSockets.so.5” in the repository. So,
apt-get install libQt5WebSockets.so.5
>apt list will show you all the packages available in your current repositories. You can pipe it to grep to filter.
grep -i libQt5WebSockets. The -i is case-insensitive.
On my machine:
❯ apt list | grep -i 'libQt5WebS'
libqt5websockets5-dev/focal 5.12.8-0ubuntu1 amd64
libqt5websockets5-dev/focal 5.12.8-0ubuntu1 i386
libqt5websockets5/focal,now 5.12.8-0ubuntu1 amd64 [installed]
libqt5websockets5/focal 5.12.8-0ubuntu1 i386
So now I know I need to
apt-get install libqt5websockets5.
Once I’ve done this, I try to run the shell script that launches soundjack. If I have more libraries to install, it’ll tell me the next one, and I have to search for it like I did above.
