On ubuntu 18.04
I have a desktop which I haven’t really used since pre-pandemic times (with julia 1.3.1). I can run julia 1.3.1 from it just fine. However, I want to run the latest version (1.7.0)! I have downloaded that, and put the new folder within my home folder, and added it to my PATH. However, I I try starting it from the terminal using “julia” I get an error:
julia: error while loading shared libraries: libjulia.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I even navigate to the specific folder where the julia bin file is, and try from there, and I get this response. I also get this response if I try the julia 1.6.4 version (but 1.3.1 works fine). I have added this bin file (1.7.0/bin/julia) to atom, and I can start julia 1.7.0 from within atom without problem. Same with running Jupyter notebooks with version 1.7.0. But not from within the terminal. I have no idea what this means.
I tried some googling. These:
make it seem that julia isn’t supported. I have never encountered this before. Surely it can’t be that no one is currently able to run julia 1.6.4 and 1.7.0 from an ubuntu machine (I have ubuntu 18.04)!?
I also looked at
and did try running
sudo /sbin/ldconfig -v
but unfortunately, that didn’t work. Now I am uncertain what to do.
