libreadline: cannot open shared object file

Installed PHP-FPM long after installing PHP itself.

When executed, both of them said this:

php: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Solved this by updating libreadline (in my case from v6.3 to v7.0)

sudo pacman -S readline

And tada! Problem solved. No more errors.

CAUTION: This might break dependencies for bash, you might wanna make some symlinks named as older (.6.3, .6) versions for libreadline in /lib and similar links might be needed for libtinfo.


Failed to execute default Terminal Emulator (Hint vte3-ng)

“Failed to execute default Terminal Emulator: Input/output error”

I recently ran into this problem with xfce4-terminal, I have around 7 or 8 desktop environments installed and selectively upgraded xfce4.

After spending an hour trying to fix the problem here’s what worked (total accident).

I was installing termite (another terminal emulator), and it installed vte3-ng and removed vte3.

I tried reopening xfce4-terminal and it worked like a charm.

Hope it saves you some time!
