Package: ovito
Version: 2.3.3+dfsg1-2+b5
Severity: grave
Tags: patch
Justification: renders package unusable

                when invoking ovito from the command line it fails with the
following message:

ovito: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared
object file: No such file or directory

ovito fails to start when invoked from the menu as well.

Note that the shared object exists:
dpkg -S
ovito: /usr/lib/ovito/

Thus, it is just a matter of a missing symbolic link.
Indeed ovito works fine after symbolic links are created as follows:
ln -s /usr/lib/ovito/ /usr/lib
ln -s /usr/lib/ovito/ /usr/lib
ln -s /usr/lib/ovito/ /usr/lib

[All three of them are needed: after restoring the link to one
finds that ovito wants the the 2 other so's too...]

Thank you in advance for fixing!
All the best,
