Dear users,

I am trying to install the latest version of GRASS GIS from source code in
my linux ubuntu 16.04 OS but having difficulty. The error message is as

"error while loading shared libraries: *libproj.so.13*: cannot open shared
object file: No such file or directory"

I have also manually installed  the latest version of proj (5.1.0) and
provided the library link during configuration of the installation of GRASS

clearly both *libproj.so * and   *libproj.so.13* do exist in the lib
directory of the proj software package and permission is fine. Besides I
have soft linked the /usr/lib/*libproj.so* to *libproj.so*
The *libproj.so* is resides at  my installation directory at
/opt/source/proj-5.1.0/build/lib/*libproj.so *and further soft linked to

*Any comments please ?*
