ANSWERED Ubuntu - can not start eddie with script - System.DllNotFoundException

Recommended Posts



if I go manually to /home/eddie and type in the shell:

nohup ./eddie-cli --login=myname--password=mypassword--netlock --connect --server=myserver & 


I can start it without any problems.



But I can not start it via a full path like:


nohup /home/eddie/eddie-cli --login=myname--password=mypassword--netlock --connect --server=myserver & 


same thing goes for a shell or python script I always get the error:

/home# exception inside UnhandledException handler: Object reference not set to an instance of an object

[ERROR] FATAL UNHANDLED EXCEPTION: System.DllNotFoundException: Lib.Platform.Linux.Native.so

Any ideas?

If it's happening with the experimental client then you can post about it in the experimental clients own thread in the announcement forum, so it'll get seen.

​nohup /home/eddie/./eddie-cli --login=myname--password=mypassword--netlock --connect --server=myserver & 

you forgot the ./ since /home/eddie isn't in the $PATH.

Glad, I could help! As you are using python I would suggest you use the subprocess module instead of os.system as it is more flexible and secure. With subprocess it is even easier to specify the working directory when using the Popen constructor - subprocess.Popen(args, cwd=$WORKINGDIRECTORY). Have a look at the documentation.
