If you get an error that looks like

f5vpn: error while loading shared libraries: libicuuc.so.72: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

that means that your version of qt5-webkit is out-of-date with your icu version, and rebuilding/installing qt5-webkit` will fix your issue.

Since qt5-webkit takes a long time to build, see this comment from the maintainer of the qt5-webkit AUR package to download a build of that dependency.

I have this error while running f5vpn 7246.2024.0201.1-1 f5vpn: error while loading shared libraries: /opt/f5/vpn/lib/libQt5WebKit.so.5: file too short maybe it is related with this warning when I reinstall qt5-webkit

@nervocalm Qt WebEngine replaced Qt WebKit, and that is what Arch Linux now uses.

Thank you @zrhoffman! Without your message I wouldn't have seen the pre-builded packages for qt5-webkit. I really appreciate if anyone could share why we still this package being that it was deprecated from the distro. I am not complaining, just what to learn why because I google for it but couldn't find anything. Thank you all for making this packages for us.

If you get an error that looks like

f5vpn: error while loading shared libraries: libicuuc.so.72: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

that means that your version of qt5-webkit is out-of-date with your icu version, and rebuilding/installing qt5-webkit` will fix your issue.

Since qt5-webkit takes a long time to build, see this comment from the maintainer of the qt5-webkit AUR package to download a build of that dependency.

Updated to require a new enough version of qt5-webkit that qt5-webkit does not encounter icu issues. f5vpn runs as expected for me.

I got the following error:

f5vpn: error while loading shared libraries: libicuuc.so.72: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I'm not sure if this is the "right way" to do it, but libicuuc.so.72 appears to be pointing to version 72 of icu whereas the core of arch is now at 73. Luckily icu 72 is available in the AUR itself so running the following solved my issue:

yay -S icu72-bin

No need to downgrade the official package, installing this will just add the previous version side-by-side. Barring any upcoming problems later, it works flawlessly for me.

Thanks @rinhin, that workaround saved my work life! :)

For everybody waiting for a fixed package here, this is how I am installing the native package which works for me:

https://0xacab.org/varac-projects/doc/-/blob/main/network/vpn/f5.md#official-client-on-arch

It's not pretty and I'd prefer a proper AUR package but as a stop-gap workaround it's ok. Thanks @zrhoffman for maintaining this package btw !

rinhin commented on 2023-07-11 13:20 (UTC)

Unfortunatly downgrading the icu package doesn't work for me since other packages already depend on libicuuc.so=73-64:

~ $ sudo -E downgrade icu=72.1-2
Downgrading from A.L.A. is disabled on the stable branch. To override this behavior, set DOWNGRADE_FROM_ALA to 1.
See https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php/Downgrading_packages  for more details.

@zrhoffman Thanks, I've gone with svpn. Works like a charm.
