I'm trying to run a game in linux (Ubuntu 13.04 x64) but I get this error:

./ParanauticalActivity: error while loading shared libraries: libGLU.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

ldd output:

$ ldd ParanauticalActivity | head
linux-gate.so.1 =>  (0xf7731000)
libGLU.so.1 => not found
libGL.so.1 => /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa/libGL.so.1 (0xf76bd000)
libX11.so.6 => /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libX11.so.6 (0xf7585000)
libXext.so.6 => /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libXext.so.6 (0xf7573000)

but... libglu is installed on my system ldconfig output:

    libGLU.so.1 -> libGLU.so.1.3.1


$ locate libGLU

any ideas ?!
