I compiled GRASS 7 on Ubuntu 12.10, with liblas in order to run r.in.lidar and v.in.lidar. I now want to import .las data; the option in file -> import raster data -> LAS LIDAR points import is given and enabled, but when I select it nothing happens.

It seems to be a problem with libLAS. The console error message says:

Unable to fetch interface description for command 'r.in.lidar'. Details: r.in.lidar: error while loading shared libraries: liblas_c.so.2.2.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

Addition: running lasinfo from terminal works.

Any idea where the bug could be?

Problem solved. Did a make clean (that is what I omitted before), then again $ "-g -Wall" ./configure --with-liblas=/usr/local/bin/liblas-config, followed by make and sudo make install. Works now!

    Excellent (note that "male distclean" is better to really clean up stuff). Please accept your answer to close the issue here. – markusN Mar 26 '13 at 6:57
