Subject [greenstone-users] Problem with wvWare on Ubuntu
Dear colleagues:

I've installed 2.72 on Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn. But when I try to
process a Word file, GLI says:

import.pl> Error executing wv converter
import.pl>/usr/local/gsdl/bin/linux/wvWare: error while loading shared
libraries: libpng.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or

After that, I used Synaptic package manager to confirm the library
problem. I've found that libpng3 isn't installed, because is superseded
by libpng12 (that is correctly installed)

Any idea to correct this problem?

Thanks in advance,
