Description

Hi,
After a successful installation on archlinux - QGIS can't find libqwt.so.6

qgis: error while loading shared libraries: libqwt.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

on Arch, despite passing

    -DQWT_LIBRARY=/usr/lib/qwt/libqwt.so

(https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/qg/qgis/PKGBUILD)
It’s still searching for libqwt.so.6 somewhere else.

I managed to solve it manually thank to this post:

(

# ln -s /usr/lib/qwt/libqwt.so.6.1.2 /usr/lib/libqwt.so.6
)

set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to /usr/lib/qwt or add it to /etc/ld.config and run ldconfig.
