Fixed: clang++: error while loading shared libraries: libtinfo.so.5

We got the following error while compiling Android AOSP source code on Ubuntu PC,

clang++: error while loading shared libraries: libtinfo.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Solution :

This error is occurring the Ubuntu Host PC didn’t had libtinfo5 installed on it. The libtinfo5 can be installed when we install libncurses5 hence this can resolved by installing libncurses5 using below command,

$ sudo apt-get install libncurses5

Now, when you enter above command and start installation, you can see the messages as below,

$ sudo apt-get install libncurses5
