Install on Xubuntu 20.10
« on: January 10, 2021, 16:26:00 pm »
I had a working CamBam install on Xubuntu 20.04, now, after installing Xubuntu 20.10 CamBam no longer starts.

It fails with a massively long error that starts with
Code: [Select]
Unhandled Exception:
System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'CamBam.CamBamConfig' threw an exception. ---> System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'System.Drawing.GDIPlus' threw an exception. ---> System.DllNotFoundException: libgdiplus.so.0 assembly:<unknown assembly> type:<unknown type> member:(null)

Can anybody offer any ideas about what to try. Faffing around with the versions of mono-complete from Ubuntu 20.10 or 20.04 does not make any difference, the error message is the same for both.

Ok, this looks like a typical linux problem that has been hanging around unresolved for several years. The problem is with 'giflib'  where in normal linux fashion the offending package is named backwards 'libgif7'.
Rolling back to an earlier version than 5.1.9, so far seems to have fixed the problem.
