Bruce:

I am a redhat user, but haven't dared trying apt-get with redhat.  I dunno if
apt will destroy/overwrite files.  I use rpm, which has it's pitfalls, but
_usually_ doesn't overwrite stuff unless you explicitly tell it to.

With that said, I know that rpm usually sets aside stuff that you over-write
with a .rpmsave extension...  Maybe you could find them and create symlinks to
get your applications working (just check to make sure that the target has the
file type ELF 32-bit LSB shared object):

[user@localhost lib]# ln -s libgtk-1.2.so.0.9.1.rpmsave libgtk-1.2.so.0

On my system (rh9), there are tons of symlinks that point to (ls -l
/usr/lib/libgtk-*)

/usr/lib/libgtk-1.2.so.0 -> libgtk-1.2.so.0.9.1
/usr/lib/libgtk-1.2.so.0.9.1
/usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so -> libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.200.1
/usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 -> libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.200.1
/usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.200.1

Hopefully, maybe the .so files are untouched, but the symlinks got
destroyed/overwritten/confused?  _If_ your original .so files are truly gone,
then I think you might have to get them reinstalled (somehow).

Just stabbing blindly in the dark...

HTHO,

jan
