Matt’s Howto:

Presented by: System76

Out of the box, JungleDiskDesktop doesn’t play well with 64bit Ubuntu. When you try to run it, you end up with this error.

> error while loading shared libraries: libnotify.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Here is how you fix the problem:

1) Create a symbolic link from /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu to /usr/lib/.

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libnotify.so.4 /usr/lib/libnotify.so.1*

2) Next, you need to run junglediskdesktop again — this time, it will work, but it’s still not appearing in the panel above. To fix this, use this command.

gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist “['all']“

3) Run junglediskdesktop again, this time it’ll show up in the panel! This also helps Skype users running 64bit Ubuntu, too.

The bash scripts I used, are available upon request – scripts@matthartley.com will send you the scripts automatically.
