while loading shared libraries: libglui.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

Can anyone please tell how to resolve this issue ?

  • Which version of Ubuntu are you using? – Nathan Osman Aug 30 '16 at 20:42

It appears that the game is using the GLUI library. Unfortunately, Ubuntu doesn't include this library in the archives for recent releases. It is, however, available for Precise.

You could try downloading the DEB for your architecture below and installing it with dpkg:


dpkg -i libglui2c2_2.36-4ubuntu1_*.deb
