Image_upload - libtiff.so.6: cannot open shared object file

Hello there,

If you have, like me, an error with 2023.10.0 like this on RPi (because latest version on bullseye is 5.6)

Component error: image_upload - libtiff.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Here is “my” solution

  1. Open a command line

  2. Clone the libtiff source code
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt upgrade
    sudo apt install git
    git clone https://gitlab.com/libtiff/libtiff.git

  3. Install cmake (optional if you have it already)
    sudo apt install cmake

  4. Make and install
    cd libtiff
    cmake .
    make
    make test
    sudo make install

  5. Create symlinks
    cd /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/
    sudo ln -fs /usr/local/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libtiff.so.6 .
    sudo ln -fs /usr/local/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libtiff.so.6.0.2 .

We are an endangered species
