    I am trying to install beebeep on kubuntu ‘trusty’ in crouton (so chroot) and I am getting a dependency issue with libQt5PrintSupport:

    ./beebeep: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    is it possible that it’s a Qt5 problem? can’t find much on a search and nothing specific to BeeBeep

  2. Eric you have to install all that packages:
    sudo apt-get install libqt5core5a libqt5gui5 libqt5widgets5 libqt5network5 libqt5printsupport5 libqt5multimedia5 libqt5multimedia5-plugins libxcb-screensaver0 libavahi-compat-libdnssd1
