Ubuntu: mplayer: error while loading shared libraries: libvdpau.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory



Question:

I believe it happened after NVIDIA drivers installation, but not sure about it.

I've tried following:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall libvdpau1  

and got this output

Reinstallation of libvdpau1 is not possible, it cannot be downloaded.  And:  sudo aptitude reinstall libvdpau1The following packages will be   REINSTALLED:    libvdpau1   E: Can't find a source to download version '1.1.1-0ubuntu0~gpu14.04.1' of libvdpau1:amd64  E: Can't find a source to download version '1.1.1-0ubuntu0~gpu14.04.1' of libvdpau1:amd64  E: Internal error: couldn't generate list of packages to download  

There is my output of dpkg --search libvdpau.so.1

libvdpau1:amd64: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libvdpau.so.1  libvdpau1:amd64: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libvdpau.so.1.0.0  

Explain step by step please, what should I do in order to make it works.


Solution:1

I managed to solve the problem using a symbolic link:

cd /usr/lib    /usr/lib$ sudo ln -s vdpau/libvdpau_nvidia.so.304.135 libvdpau.so.1
