Are you trying to run in headless mode? I would think that the run parms should either be `soffice --help` (to display help) or `soffice file_to_be_opened` to start up LO in GUI mode with splash screen.

There's libXinerama package in standard repo for both 32-bit and 64-bit OS that contains this file. I have no clue whether you can install both in 64-bit OS, however.

@sunnyr the error is usually an indication that the library in question cannot be found. This can be due to a variety of reasons but is sometimes the result of mixing 32bit and 64bit applications and libraries. All I can suggest is confirming that you have installed a version of LO that matches your system (and that the referenced libraries also match in this respect).
