[ubuntu-uk] cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I am trying to get KBasic working for someone who is an ardent VB
supporter, but in whom i have just managed to pique interest
sufficiently to give this go.

Unfortunately i have had some trouble with the installer, mainly with
getting all the dependencies on the machine. Now i think i have
everything but i am still getting a message about a missing shared
object. When i enter (to run the installer: 'kbide'):

~/Downloads/KBasic$ ./kbide

I get:

./kbide: error while loading shared libraries: libQtSvg.so.4: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory

"locate  libQtSvg.so.4"



So it seems that the directory is there but its not being seen.

Does anyone know what the problem is. On the KBasic site
(http://kbasic.com/download.html) they mention that you have to have
the dependencies in the correct place. As i understand it this was a
problem caused by running 32bit software on a 64bit machine, but this
has been taken care of in Oneric (which i am using). Notably,
libQtSvg.so.4 isn't even mentioned as a dependency and thus i can't
see where the file i meant to be.
