I was following a tutorial on how to find out the dependent libraries of a program and it was explained like this:
whereis firefoxshows the folders, where it is installed, take the full path to the binary, and
ldd /usr/bin/firefoxput it as argument of the ldd command.
the tutorial also used firefox as an example and therefore I was sure to recreate it, but when I typed:
🌐 whereis firefox firefox: /usr/bin/firefox /usr/lib/firefox /etc/firefox /usr/share/man/man1/firefox.1.gz 🌐 ldd /usr/bin/firefox not a dynamic executable
I got this "not a dynamic executable" message, instead of the list of libraries. Why?
