Tasks will download, run, then instantly fail. BOINC's event log says the output file is absent, and the stderr.txt file says it can't find a shared library:

<core_client_version>7.2.42</core_client_version>
<![CDATA[
<message>
process exited with code 127 (0x7f, -129)
</message>
<stderr_txt>
../../projects/boinc.gorlaeus.net/classical_5.56_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu.exe: error while loading shared libraries: libglut.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

</stderr_txt>
]]>

Is this libglut.so.3 supposed to download with the project, or do I need to manually install it somewhere?

**UPDATE**

I think I've fixed the problem! By doing a system-wide search, I found libglut.3.9.0 and libglut.so.3 in my Steam installation. After copying these files into the project folder for Leiden, tasks are now finishing and completing properly.

Next time I'll try to figure things out before posting things on the forum, but hopefully this will help someone else in the future.

Thought I would go ahead and post this in hopes it helps others.

If you are running command line only with no GUI.
sudo apt-get install xorg freeglut3

xorg is a basic x11 environment
freeglut3 is the openGL libraries

This should install all the graphical dependencies to the system

If you are using a normal verson of Ubuntu(non Server) It will likely work out of the box. If not,
sudo apt-get install freeglut3

freeglut3.dev is also available through the ubuntu software center. Simply search for it with show technical items enabled and install.
