Unable to run Lumerical application on Ubuntu systems



Even after following the instruction on installing Lumerical’s product application on Ubuntu Systems.

We are getting the error when trying to launch and access the application.

error while loading shared libraries: libgstapp-0.10.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The system requires the gstreamer library plug-in. Install the package as follows:

sudo apt-get install libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0

You should be able to open and run the application.


For some installations of Ubuntu, the libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0 might have been updated to a newer version. Please refer to this post:
