Missing Perl Interpreter

Last edited on


When starting the IDE a dialog like below is visible:

This can happen on various Linux distributions and relates to the Perl interpreter not finding the correct libraries on the system.

When executing

perl -v

for the interpreter in the package this is visible

error while loading shared libraries: libcrypt.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Install the libcrypt1 or libxcrypt-compat package from the package manager depending on what is available on your Linux distribution.

If you do not use Perl, it is also safe to just ignore the error as the other script interpreters will not be affected.
