ImportError /usr/lib64/libQt5Core.so.5 – in several software packages
Working with Fedora 35: I want to run a few different software packages that share a dependency, seemingly Qt.
In the shell, I get this response, from Cadence and other software:
ImportError: /lib64/libQt5Core.so.5: version `Qt_5_PRIVATE_API' not found (required by /usr/local/lib/python3.10/site-packages/PyQt5-5.15.6-py3.10-linux-x86_64.egg/PyQt5/QtCore.abi3.so)
ldconfig -p | grep "libQt5Core.so.5" gets me
libQt5Core.so.5 (libc6,x86-64, OS ABI: Linux 3.17.0) => /lib64/libQt5Core.so.5
If I remove
/lib64/libQt5Core.so.5 I get
ImportError: libQt5Core.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
python3-pyqt5-sip or other
python dependencies does not seem to help.
libQt5Core.so.5 is found by the system, but it does not work. Though others with Fedora 35 do not have this problem. How can I provide Pathon with the required
Thanks to the comment by @MarkusMüller, I traced back the issue to another package that had installed PyQt at an unexpected place.
The solution was to remove the other package and its dependencies. Then reinstalling Cadence worked and it ran.
try to install qt5-default (that’s the debian package name)
I also got this error when use julialang in jupyter notebook at my Fedora 36, because I use anaconda, the problem solved by replace libQt5Core.so.5 at directory anaconda3/lib with file libQt5Core.so.5 /usr/lib64
