+1 for this. Even a paragraph or two describing how to bootstrap into 14.04 would have saved me time and reduced the chance for user error. Here’s a clear statement of the problem, as well as a solution I implemented based on a deep dive into stackexchange, that seems to be working for me (and does not seem to have broken anything else as of yet).
The Problem: After running
install.sh to do the install, running
./FrontPanel raises a cryptic-sounding error stating that libudev.so.0 cannot be found.
The Solution I Picked: This AskUbuntu thread has the answer that I ended up implementing (look down a couple answers to Ryan Chrichton’s response) which recommends downloading the .deb file from the Ubuntu archives and then using the package manager GUI or dpkg to install it.
Discussion: I’m definitely not an expert on Ubuntu’s package manager but this seemed like a fairly clean solution relative to other approaches such as creating a symlink libudev.so.0 to the installed library libudev.so.1. There were several threads that recommended this, but other responses were critical of this approach on the grounds that there are major compatibility issues between the two library versions that would not be addressed by simply making libudev.so.1 look like libudev.so.0.
