Documentation Navigator - I cannot get DocNav to work on Ubuntu or other Linux Distros

Description

I cannot get Documentation Navigator to work on my Linux machine.

Are there any work-arounds I can try?

Solution

Follow these steps:

  1. Change the Documentation Navigator executeable name:
    mv docnav docnav.bin
  2. Create ashell script wrapper to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH and launch DocNav:
    $ cat docnav
    #!/bin/bash
    LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH ./docnav.bin
    exit 0
  3. Ensure theshell scriptwrapper is in thesame directory as the binary executable.
