I was building from source to test one bug i was facing, and I did apt-get remove gstreamer once. Since then when I do gst-launch it throws following:

$ gst-launch --version
/usr/local/bin/gst-launch-0.10: error while loading shared libraries: libgstreamer-0.10.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

But if I do /home/user/Downloads/gstreamer/tools/gst-launch --version it shows latest version. Do you know how can I now solve it?

    It looks like you need to do sudo make install from you Downloads/gstreamer folder... – ed. Sep 24 '11 at 10:11

Enter the folder you built from source in, and then use

sudo make install

You will probably need your password at this point.
