Cannot run Musescore's AppImage on Ubuntu Linux

• Jan 23, 2017 - 20:14

I'm trying to install Musescore for my Linux system s that I installed onto my chromebook (by Samsung with an Intel processor). I'm trying to get it to run on my system but when I click execute but yet it doesn't run.

Thanks in advance!

Very old topic, but this issue is happening to me under similar circumstances (Chromebook, XFCE, app literally does nothing when double-clicked). I'd just refreshed my Linux installation to get file space, but upon redownloading the MuseScore AppImage it no longer ran. Weird, since it ran fine last time. Typing ./MuseScore*.AppImage in the console gave this error:
/tmp/.mount_sm0bQf/AppRun: line 15: ldconfig: command not found
Jack does not appear to be installed. That's OK, we'll use a dummy version instead.
/tmp/.mount_sm0bQf/bin/mscore-portable: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Installing Jack didn't help.
I tried installing, but it doesn't exist, at least with that name. So is it that ldconfig command? I might need some help.

With what little I know, you shouldn't have to mess with ldconfig.

Your mission, it would seem, is to find the appropriate package containing the library ( isn't the package but the shared object file) and install it.

Not sure what Chromebooks use, so maybe browse through your 'package manager' software. On my Linux system, there's available libxslt1.1, libxslt-dev and -debug.

Maybe try $ sudo apt-get install libxslt1-dev

Good luck.
