Can't start Komodo on Ubuntu 22.04 - XPCOMGlueLoad error

After installation at /home/donald/Komodo-IDE-12, invoking ~/Komodo-IDE-12/bin/komodo returns:

XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /home/donald/Komodo-IDE-12/lib/mozilla/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn’t load XPCOM.

So I did a find, and found

find / -name 2>/dev/null

Setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH to either of the found directories returns:

XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /home/donald/Komodo-IDE-12/lib/mozilla/ wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
Couldn’t load XPCOM.

Now I’m out of ideas. I looked at the previous report against Ubuntu 22.04 and this is different. Firefox is installed as a snap if that makes a difference.

Morning @dhlocker,

According to this Mozilla support link it sounds like you might have installed the 32bit version of Komodo on a 64 bit machine.

Colour me embarrassed. Indeed, that’s what I did. Apologies to all for the useless noise.

All good! Glad that’s what it was!
