There is an executable I want to install on a computer that I can't recompile that wasn't built as a package, and I want to download the libraries it requires to run them.
Below is part of the output from running
ldd on it
libpango-1.0.so.0 => /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libpango-1.0.so.0 (0xb702f000) libcairo.so.2 => /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libcairo.so.2 (0xb6f64000) libatk-1.0.so.0 => /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libatk-1.0.so.0 (0xb6f43000) libsqlite3.so.0 => /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libsqlite3.so.0 (0xb6e9e000) libc.so.6 => /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libc.so.6 (0xb6cf4000) /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xb786e000) libxcb.so.1 => /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libxcb.so.1 (0xb6cd3000) libgio-2.0.so.0 => /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgio-2.0.so.0 (0xb6b7c000) libm.so.6 => /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libm.so.6 (0xb6b4f000)
Is there a tool that can use this information to select which packages should be downloaded or better yet extract only the libraries listed and their dependencies, in order to minimize the disk usage? The system is running on a headless VM and the program will be displayed via VNC.
Although I suspect that a full blown graphics desktop will supply most of the libraries needed I want to download only the required libraries, their dependencies and just enough of the X Windows package to support it.
