After installing root 6.12 on ubuntu 17, received an error regarding a missing file upon running root


I’m just starting research with root and I ran into this error when I tried running root:

cling::DynamicLibraryManager::loadLibrary(): cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

So far the only things I have done is setting the environment variables with and installing gcc.

I searched on the forums but it didn’t seem anyone else had posted anything about this, so I was wondering if there was a way to fix this and, if there wasn’t, whether there was some previous version of root I could use instead?


how did you install ROOT?


You are missing a dependency of ROOT. Please try to run ROOT after running apt-get install libtbb-dev.

Thank you, it’s working now
