NetBeans launches app with weird search path

Post by FedorIsHere »

I am trying to get Ogre running with different IDE's, to see which one is the most usable to me. I got pretty far with NetBeans and its C/C++ plugin. It is quite easy to set the right include and library paths for the project. It builds nicely, but when I run it from NetBeans it gives the following error:

Code: Select all

Error occurred during execution: InternalErrorException: 
Could not load dynamic library /snap/netbeans/84/usr/local/lib/OGRE/RenderSystem_GL.  
System Error: /snap/netbeans/84/usr/local/lib/OGRE/RenderSystem_GL.so.14.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory in DynLib::load at /home/fedor/projecten/c++/ogre-14.1.0/OgreMain/src/OgreDynLib.cpp (line 136)

When I run the app outside of NetBeans, just clicking on the binary, it works without a problem.

It looks like the NetBeans-launch has the NetBeans install directory as its working dir and appends the library path to it. Where did it pick up this silly idea?

this is a peculiarity with Ogre snap handling. Because netbeans is a snap, Ogre thinks it is also part of the snap.

The solution is to set the environment variable SNAP="", when launching Ogre

Tnx again!

I took another route due to another problem I encountered but Snap did indeed mess up things here. I ended up downloading the binary-zip, unpacking it and firing it up from the prompt. I opened my project, hit Run + Debug and it launched a working app. Me happy!

I now have a working Netbeans-installation that does C++ and Ogre. I will do an installation on my laptop somewhere in the next few days and post a short howto here.
