Hi, I am trying to install mothur from the direct zip file on Ubuntu on a VirtualBox. As I launch the command mothur, I get this message:
mothur: error while loading shared libraries: libreadline.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I know there is a mothur page https://www.mothur.org/wiki/How_to_Resolve_Readline_Issues about readline issues, but as I enter yum search readline, I don’t have any of the readline packages presented. I also looked for them on the apt list and tried to install different readline libraries, but still wouldn’t work.
Is it an issue you have encountered before? Thank you!
