Cinnamon Pix problem.

Since the most recent update to Cinnamon,Pix has developed a problem.
Inserting a Camera SD card usually gets a prompt that leads to Pix opening for file transfer. After a very brief busy prompt nothing else happens.
Selecting pix from the menu or right click does nothing, a reboot is required.
I have removed and reinstalled the Cinnamon environment but the situation prevails.
Calling Pix from a terminal results in nothing,unless sudo is used.

Hmmm. No Takers.
It appears that Pix is looking for exiv2.so.26 ,shared object library, but exiv2.so.27 is installed. There doesnt appear to be a fallback version either.

This may work:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libexiv2.so.27 /usr/lib/libexiv2.so.26

But I just installed pix and it runs fine here. Is your system up to date?

Yes Xircon, a few days ago. Will try your suggestion and come back to you.
BINGO! Neat solution,some sort of redirection?

Yes, a symbolic link.
