Hi all,

    Looks like the library needed isn't installed on your Ubuntu distro - libXext.so.6

    You need to add this (depends on different mechanisms and I am no Ubuntu expert), as the installed library is calling it for the OS and its not there. Seen this on other systems too, but add that library and you should be OK on that check - though chances are you will find another missing library.

  • Thanks Paul, that was the missing library.

    How did you know which library was missing?

    Regards,

  • Hi,

        You can try this command to install libxtst6 32bit and the issue has been resolved.    $ sudo apt-get install libxtst6:i386
