  • Hello,
    I have installed Fruitbox jukebox software on my Pi, but I am receiving error messages when trying to run the software.

    Hardware and Software details:
    Pi Model or other hardware: 3B+ Rev 1.2
    RetroPie Version Used: 4.3.11
    Operating System: Raspbian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie)
    Built From: Raw SD Image on RetroPie website, and built up from there over the last couple years.
    USB Devices connected: Keyboard, dual zero delay encoders

    The Fruitbox Readme suggests that the user start on a fresh v10 Buster install, but I am looking to install it on an older Jessie based image.
    I suspect others, who are looking to add this Jukebox software to their existing RetroPie rig, might be struggling with these same issues.

    Note that I did start at the source, asking the author for help directly through Github.
    He advised, "Just install a fresh buster release and it should work."

    After installing the software:

    wget https://github.com/chundermike/rpi-fruitbox/raw/master/install.sh
    chmod +x ./install.sh
    source ./install.sh

    You end up in the Fruitbox root directory:

    ~/rpi-fruitbox-master

    And to test your installation, you can invoke the software with no arguments:

    ./fruitbox

    The error I received was:

    ./fruitbox: error while loading shared libraries: libpng16.so.16: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    I was able to resolve this issue by installing the missing library:

    wget https://cfhcable.dl.sourceforge.net/project/libpng/libpng16/1.6.34/libpng-1.6.34.tar.xz
    tar xf libpng-1.6.34.tar.xz
    cd libpng-1.6.34/
    ./configure
    sudo make check
    sudo make install
    sudo ldconfig

    The next time I ran, I received the following errors:

    ./fruitbox: /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libstdc++.so.6: version CXXABI_1.3.9' not found (required by ./fruitbox) ./fruitbox: /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libstdc++.so.6: version GLIBCXX_3.4.22' not found (required by ./fruitbox)
    ./fruitbox: /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libstdc++.so.6: version GLIBCXX_3.4.21' not found (required by ./fruitbox) ./fruitbox: /lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libc.so.6: version GLIBC_2.28' not found (required by ./fruitbox)

    At this point, my Google skills are failing me, and I am unable to get past the issue.
    I went as far as to update my operating system overnight from jessie to stretch (still one version behind the recommended buster version).
    This resulted in the clobbering of most of my custom software tweaks, and still Fruitbox threw errors. So I fell back to my latest jessie-based image, and here I am.

    Any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated.

  • I believe the library is now just libpng on buster and you'll likely need to recompile fruitbox for it to work which is why it cannot resolve it's libraries.


  • @zerojay
    Thank you very much, I got similar advice back on the Fruitbox github page. It seems that there are a couple options - recompile the latest version on Jessie, or make use of an older build which is already Jessie based. Here's the quote from Fruitbox's author:

    FYI you can always build a Jessie version yourself...just follow the instructions in the build.txt file in the directory. Alternatively if you don't want the latest release, there's a Jessie version already on GitHub.

    I'm going to pursue both of those options and report back here shortly.
    Thanks!

    You can also look into building a statically linked version of the fruitbox executable which means that all the libraries needed are compiled into the executable directly which means you won't need to worry about what version of the libraries are installed as you will have all you need already built-in. It means a larger executable but worth it for your use case.


  • Got it all sorted out.
    Fruitbox running smoothly on a Jessie-based RetroPie image, straight from the EmulationStation main menu.
    And I wrote a how-to, so you can too.
