After installing and launching Inkscape, I get the following error regarding libgdl-3.so.5 libraries

Code: Select all

inkscape: error while loading shared libraries: libgdl-3.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Same error, the library might be part of another package?

It' the right one

Code: Select all

# for i in "$(find / -name libgdl-3.so.5 2>0)"; do equo q belongs -vq "${i}"; done
dev-libs/gdl-3.28.0
I would try to run inkscape with strace and check where it is looking for the library.
Then create a symlink to the available one.
