I've compiled both guile-dbi guile-dbd-sqlite and using standard

./configure && make && sudo make install

and I've try to open database using scheme:

(define db-obj (dbi-open "sqlite3" "notes.db"))

but I got error:

libguile-dbd-sqlite3.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

the file is located in /usr/local/lib it's symbolic link to libguile-dbd-sqlite3.so.2.0.6

I'm using Xubuntu 16.10 and those packages are not in repository.

Not sure, but perhaps the latest code solves this problem. A patch to fix shared-library loading was just published.

The gna.org website is defunct; see https://github.com/opencog/guile-dbi for the latest and greatest.
