#345 closed defect (invalid)

applications can't find motif library /usr/X11R6/lib/libXm.3.dylib

Component: ports Version: 1.0

I installed openMotif 2.2.2 and tried running simple applications such as 'earth' or 'mwm' and they were unable to run because they couldn't:

dyld: earth can't open library: /usr/X11R6/lib/libXm.3.dylib (No such file or directory, errno=2) Trace/BPT trap

When I looked in /usr/X11R6/lib, there was libXm.3.0.1.dylib and I noticed that there were several libraries that had soft-links from a non-dotted version (such as libXmu.6.dylib) to the dotted version (such as libXmu.6.2.dylib).

I simply created the soft-link from libXm.3.dylib to libXm.3.0.1.dylib and the motif applications worked just fine. I assume its a problem with the installation tool.
