I am having some trouble with GDAL (v2.1-dev). I build it from source today using Poppler and OpenJPEG. All the command line utilities work fine, but none of the Python plugins work at all, producing this error message:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/local/bin/gdal_merge.py", line 37, in <module> import gdal File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gdal.py", line 2, in <module> from osgeo.gdal import deprecation_warn File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/osgeo/__init__.py", line 21, in <module> _gdal = swig_import_helper() File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/osgeo/__init__.py", line 17, in swig_import_helper _mod = imp.load_module('_gdal', fp, pathname, description) ImportError: libgdal.so.20: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Now, I've seen plenty of threads that say update
LD_LIBRARY_PATH or include
/usr/local/bin/ in my
ld.so.conf file. I've done both of those things and they don't help. Furthermore, those posts all refer to
libgdal.so.1 not being found. So, I added the location of
ld.so.conf and still no dice.
I am running Ubuntu 14.04.03 32bit, cleanly installed just a few days ago.
I followed these instructions to download, make, and install GDAL and OpenJPEG in a folder I made called /home/ronn4031/src/.
