[Solved] How To Run FreeFileSync

Hello SparkyForum,

first I have to say this distro really rocks and I hope it will last as long as possible.
My systems are mostly running LMDE and I'm new to Sparky and beginning to convert to it  :D

My question is: How to run FreeFileSync?

This is what I tried: Download and Unpacked following archive.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/freefilesync/files/FreeFileSync/archive/FreeFileSync_6.9_Debian_7.6_64-bit.tar.gz/download


Double-Click on FileFreeSync in unpacked folder leads to no visible action.

In Terminal:

me@x61t:~/Downloads/FreeFileSync$ sudo ./FreeFileSync
[sudo] password for me:
./FreeFileSync: error while loading shared libraries: libjpeg.so.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
me@x61t:~/Downloads/FreeFileSync$


Any idea, what might solve the problem? Maybe something with Java?

Hi
The output:
Quoteerror while loading shared libraries: libjpeg.so.8
says that there is missing libjpeg8 library.
Install package: libjpeg8 from sid repos and try again.
If it still doesn't work install: libjpeg8-dev

After uncommenting sid-repos in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sid.list
and reload in synaptic
libjpeg8
still coudn't be found, although it should have been because of

https://packages.debian.org/us/sid/libjpeg8

Installed libjpeg-dev instead but still console warning
about missing libjpeg8 persisted.

Downloaded manually
https://packages.debian.org/sid/amd64/libjpeg8/download

Deb-Installer said the package is already in the repositories,
but it was not shown in Synaptic, so I hit install anyway.

Now Synaptic shows libjpeg8 as installed package,
and -guess what- FreeFileSync is running smoothly simply by double-click  :)
