I solved by finding an old version of the library and installing it. Nevertheless, I think Glade package should include all the libraries. Neither Redhat(CentOS) nor SuSe has much adoption in desktop Linux nowadays.
But Glade does come with all the shared libs it needs, for the OS version it is compiled for, as a ‘ldd glade’ should show. Of course some other applications may need their own versions of the Qt libs, so setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to the glade_linux64_**/lib dir will cause problems for them, but as Glade finds its required libraries using rpath, you don’t need to set that env var for Glade.
In terms of download popularity, CentOS is equal to Ubuntu in numbers. And both are 10x less than the number of Windows 64 bit downloads…
Point taken. The problem was with ICU library. I checked it but couldn’t see it in Glade. Thankfully, Arch Linux had it in user repository. I didn’t have much time but pylabel is working on Windows but not in Linux
On the other hand, serious EDA has never taken off in Windows. There must be a reason. Usually, any CentOS binaries work on Manjaro without many problems. I even had Synopsys Custom Designer working on Manjaro for two years. Even Windows is a rolling distro now:)
On a more serious note, Python 2 is now past its natural life. It is becoming increasingly difficult to find modules to be used with it.
I think I know why pyLabel is not working for Redhat8 binaries. They are still 4.7.40 binaries. I cannot add the screenshot but it says it is 4.7.40 compiled on July 9
Windows binary is correct version:4.7.41 on July 10.
