Do you have any libpng* libs in /usr/lib ?

You could symlink it to libpng12.so.x (something like that), or to libpng.so.3 if you have that.

I think that libpng is built into one of the base libs but I don't know which (check the exact name which it was looking for - was it libpng.so.2 or libpng.so, make sure your symlink is to the correct file). Search might find it, otherwise libpng is doubtless available on killefiz.de.

/home/root/usr/lib is a funny place to find a lib.

What exactly does the error message say?

Are you sure the symlink worked? Did you:

# cd /usr/lib
# ln -s /home/root/usr/lib/libpng.so.2 .

Or something like that?

Hello Si,

Yeah symlink is there, created just as you've shown. I agree an odd place to have lib.

Did you install libpng? I can't think of any other reason for it to be there.

Check the filesize (that it isn't 0 bytes), permissions (don't know whether they matter to tell the truth).

I just compiled gnuplot 4.0 and tested it with Cacko/Qt 1.21 with X/qt. Perhaps it will help.
