Installing GAUSS on Linux: error while loading shared libraries: libiomp5.so
I’m trying to install Gauss 12 in Ubuntu 12.1 x64 on a server in the cloud and use it in the terminal.
After installation, I try to run
tgauss and I get the error:
./tgauss: error while loading shared libraries: libiomp5.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

libiomp5.so is the threading library used by GAUSS. You need to set your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable.

If LD_LIBRARY_PATH has a current value, then you will want to append your GAUSS home directory to the end of this list like this:
