Hi, I have just downloaded the latest version of Skipper, but this is the error when I'm trying to open it:

error while loading shared libraries: libmysqlclient.so.21: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I'm on ubuntu 18.04. How to solve?

Hello, thanks for the info. We will check it and let you know.

Can you please check if this file is available in the libs directory?

No, I have libmysqlclient.so.20

what version of Skipper are you using?

because latest version of the Skipper ( is distributed with libs\libmysqlclient.so.18 , not so.20 or .so.21

But you're right that .so.21 should be distributed with the latest Skipper build, this is an issue on our side. I just updated dependencies and executed a new release build. I will let you know.
