Ubuntu: Wine can't find gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so


I am trying to start a program using wine on Ubuntu LTS 12.04 64 bit

When I do this, I get the following error message...

/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so: /usr/lib/i386-linux->gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or >directory

When I try to symlink the 64 bit libraries, of course, I get the following...

jackie@jackie-Latitude-E6410:~/tmp/AC$ wine TTG.exe  p11-kit: couldn't load module: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so:   /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64  wine: Unhandled page fault on read access to 0x00000000 at address (nil) (thread 0009),   starting debugger...  err:seh:raise_exception Unhandled exception code c0000005 flags 0 addr 0x7bc47aac  

Is there a package that installs the 32-bit as well as the 64bit?


Appears to be a bug in Ubuntu w/ 1.4


I used these steps and my application worked


Not sure exactly why but it appears to ignore the error if you use the 1.5.


This solution works for Ubuntu 12.04 64bit

I originally had this error:

/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory  

Then I did a ln -s link to the 64-bit lib and got this error: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64

note: before you start remove the link to the 64bit lib if you created it.


Here is how to fix it. Note I am using Crossover 11.3, which uses wine 1.4 so it should also work for wine users.

Further related information to getlibs can be found here.

1) Install getlibs:

UODATE 3/2013: Download getlibs from https://github.com/spaetzlecode/getlibs

wget https://raw.github.com/spaetzlecode/getlibs/master/getlibs  sudo chown root:root getlibs  sudo chmod +x getlibs  sudo mv -n getlibs /usr/local/bin  

2) Install the 32bit library:

sudo /usr/local/bin/getlibs -p gnome-keyring:i386  

If you got this message error:

Failed to download file http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/main/g/gnome-keyring/gnome-keyring_3.4.1-4ubuntu1~precise1_i386.deb  

then download the file right here:

wget https://launchpad.net/~gnome3-team/+archive/gnome3/+files/gnome-keyring_3.4.1-4ubuntu1~precise1_i386.deb  

and do:

/usr/local/bin/getlibs -i "path-of-the-file"/gnome-keyring_3.4.1-4ubuntu1~precise1_i386.deb  

3) Make the symbolic link:

sudo mkdir -p /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/   sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so  

Now run your Crossover/Wine app and the error is gone.


The solution to this needn't be any more complex than:

sudo apt-get install libp11-kit-gnome-keyring  

for 64 bit machines. Or

sudo apt-get install libp11-kit-gnome-keyring:i386  

for 32 bit machines.

At least this is the case in 13.04 and I see no reason why that wouldn't hold true in 12.04/12.10.


You probably guessed your needed to get the file /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so. This file is part of an i386 ubuntu package which won't install directly on your amd64 system. But you can get it easily:

cd $(mktemp -d)                      ## create and go to a temporary temp dir  apt-get download gnome-keyring:i386  ## download the i386 version of gnome-keyring  ar x gnome-keyring*.deb              ## Uncompress the package  tar xf data.tar.gz  ## Finally move the file you need to the desired location:  sudo mv usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11 /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/  

This has happened to me on a 12.10 with wine-1.5.29, and i386 gnome-keyring version was labeled 3.6.1-0ubuntu1_i386, and this worked for me.

Please note that if these instruction do not fit for you, maybe should you mention your ubuntu release and gnome-keyring version. Thanks !


Another option that worked for me is to simply reinstall libp11-kit0

sudo apt-get install --reinstall libp11-kit0
