Package: salome
Version: 5.1.3-11
Severity: normal

While trying to import a med file, I got the following error:

bash: /usr/bin/salome/mprint_version: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type
Follow exception was occured in:
- theFileName =

/src/VISU_I/VISU_Result_i.cc [559])

Checking MED_Factory.cxx at line 60 gives:
aStr<<"bash -c \""<<getenv

In my case, MED_ROOT_DIR is /usr and mprint_version is located in

/usr/lib/salome/bin/mprint_version so it's not surprising if the file is not
Patching the file should not be a 
big issue replacing "/bin/salome/" with
"/lib/salome/bin/" but I don't know how to do it... (in a clean way like commit

a patch in git repo)

kindest regards,
