I followed the instruction to install the libtiff but when I execute it, I receive the following error:

"tiff2pdf: error while loading shared libraries: libtiff.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

You should run the following commands from the libtiff's root:

 $ ./configure
 $ make
 # make install

(you should be root to run the install target).

By default the library will be installed in the /usr/local/lib directory and tools go into the /usr/local/bin. You can check whether all binaries at their places:

 $ ls /usr/local/lib|grep libtiff

and the output should be


 $ ls /usr/local/bin|grep tiff

output will be


Now be sure that your /etc/ld.so.conf file contains /usr/local/lib path (that file contains directories where the dynamic linker searches for libraries) and run the "ldconfig" command as root.

It is likely that you are already complete the first step and all that you need is just do the "ld" magic.
