Avidemux 2.5.4 libADM_UKGtk.so or libADM_UIQT4.so error


I’ve recently just installed Avidemux 2.5.4 from a tar ball on to a Linux Mint Debian distribution.  After the install, I tried to launch avidemux2_gtk and avidemux2_qt4 and was presented by:

./avidemux2_gtk: error while loading shared libraries: libADM_UIGtk.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

and

./avidemux2_qt4: error while loading shared libraries: libADM_UIQT4.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

 

Long story short, I thought something was a busted.  It seems that on Debian based systems (that’ll include Ubuntu varients) you’ll need to run

sudo ldconfig

to allow you to launch the application.
