I recently upgraded my Ubuntu and my favourite RSS Reader stopped working:(I have a workaroundTwo issues to work-around

    1. The LD_LIBRARY_PATH for the xulrunner installed in RSSOWL
      • cd to the RSSOwl Install dir then run
        • LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./xulrunner/ ./RSSOwl
    2. It then complains about a problem with xulrunner requiring libhunspell
      • xulrunner-bin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
      • Ubuntu 12.10 default package is libhunspell-1.3-0 with the corresponding library file
      • So I kludged it with a symbolic link
        • sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

**Now it works! when I run**

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./xulrunner/ ./RSSOwl
