There are two additional environmental variables that need to be set for AppendPDF on all UNIX platforms. If these variables are not set, you will receive the message “error while loading shared libraries. libDLXXpdfl.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.”
The first environmental variable that needs to be set is APPLIGENT_HOME. This stores the location of the Appligent home directory. The default location for the Appligent home directory is /usr/local/appligent. The Appligent home directory contains the library files and resources needed to run AppendPDF. It also contains license information for AppendPDF.
Example for setting this variable:
The second environmental variable is LD_LIBRARY_PATH on UNIX (except AIX, see below). The APDFL library path must be added to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable. The APDFL library path is located in a subdirectory of the APPLIGENT_HOME directory.
The path should be set to:
Example for setting the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable:
FOR AIX USERS ONLY!
The environmental variable is LIBPATH. The APDFL library path is located in a subdirectory of the APPLIGENT_HOME directory. The path should be set to:
