You run an older program and get a message like this:

jansorg@island:~$ jad BooleanWorker.class
jad: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This means the binary “jad” needs a library which is not installed. Using Google you find out is that the package “libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2.deb” used to contain the file but sadly it’s not available any more in 8.04.

The solution is to download the old Ubuntu 7.10 / Gutsy Gibbon package and to install it on 8.04. The package is available at: http://packages.ubuntu.com/gutsy/i386/libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2/download . After installing the command above is working well again.

sudo dpkg -i libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2_2.95.4-24_i386.deb
