I'm trying to run xPDF suite under Ubuntu 18.04 on Intel. Calling getxgui starts the xPDFsuite as expected, but clicking "PDFgui for PDF modeling" dumps
Traceback (most recent call last):

ImportError: libgstreamer-0.10.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
into the terminal. Did not have libgstreamer-0.10.so.0 anywhere, so I downloaded and installed libgstreamer0.10-0_0.10.36-1.5_i396.deb so now I have /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgstreamer-0.10.so.0 but somehow the program does not know about it? Looking at /home/rob/xPDFsuite/Python27/lib/python2.7/site-packages/wx-3.0-gtk2/wx/_core.py, it says "# This file was created automatically by SWIG 1.3.29.
# Don't modify this file, modify the SWIG interface instead." I don't know about the SWIG interface so I have not gone any further down that avenue.
Has anyone else encountered this problem? If so, how did you fix it? I am thinking about deleting later versions of libgstreamer to see if the system falls back to the -0 version but that seems like it could have bad consequences?
If I had compiled from source I would recompile and relink and think that would fix it. Is there an analogous process for this software? Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!
