[SOLVED] Unable to load shared library "libgdiplus" – Docker [ .NET application with Aspose API]

Issue

The application is normally working with development environment when i create a docker file for deployment it getting failed with libgdiplus issue.

DockerFile

FROM mcr.microsoft.com/dotnet/core/aspnet:3.0 AS base
WORKDIR /app
FROM mcr.microsoft.com/dotnet/core/sdk:3.0 AS build


RUN apt-get update && apt-get install -y apt-utils
RUN apt-get install -y libfontconfig1
RUN apt-get install -y libgdiplus
RUN apt-get install -y libc6-dev 
RUN ln -s /usr/lib/libgdiplus.so/usr/lib/gdiplus.dll

# copy csproj and restore as distinct layers
WORKDIR /src
COPY HelloWorld/HelloWorld.csproj HelloWorld/
RUN dotnet restore HelloWorld/HelloWorld.csproj
COPY . .


WORKDIR /src/HelloWorld
RUN dotnet build HelloWorld.csproj -c Release -o /app

FROM build AS publish
RUN dotnet publish HelloWorld.csproj -c Release -o /app

FROM base AS final
WORKDIR /app
COPY --from=publish /app .
ENTRYPOINT ["dotnet", "HelloWorld.dll"]

Even i tried the below script to load library, but still it fails

RUN apt-get update \ 
    && apt-get install -y --allow-unauthenticated \
     libc6-dev \ 
    libgdiplus \ 
    libx11-dev \ 
    && rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*

Solution

You’re installing libgdiplus in your build container image, but not in your final container image. You need to make sure libgdiplus is installed in your final container image.

You can consider amending your Dockerfile like this:

FROM mcr.microsoft.com/dotnet/core/aspnet:3.0 AS base
RUN apt-get update && apt-get install -y libgdiplus

WORKDIR /app
FROM mcr.microsoft.com/dotnet/core/sdk:3.0 AS build
