Can't open bitcoin-qt GUI on Raspberry Pi

3 weeks ago 18

I installed the latest bitcoin node on my Raspberry Pi 4 following this guide: https://www.makeuseof.com/bitcoin-node-raspberry-pi/ Everything went well, only the last step where you need to start the GUI I get an error message.

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ /usr/local/bin/bitcoin-qt /usr/local/bin/bitcoin-qt: error while loading shared libraries: libfontconfig.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I googled the issue and found a thread here on the same problem. How do I run GUI on Raspbian?

I downloaded all dependencies from the github page, but still the same issue.

I went to the file manager and indeed I found no such file or directory (/usr/local/bin/bitcoin-qt). I do find it somewhere else: enter image description here

But how do I open it from this place in the terminal? If I type /home/pi/bitcoin-0.21.1/bin/bitcoin-qt I get the same error.
