I need to provide /path/to/openssl/bin to a build command, but I can't for the life of me find the OpenSSL installation in Ubuntu 14.04.

I've tried this:

$ sudo find / -name openssl
/usr/bin/openssl

...but that doesn't find the bin dir. Any ideas?

  • Are you sure the command does not simply need the full path-to-openssl-binary, which is /usr/bin/openssl on your system? – A. Loiseau Aug 19 '16 at 0:21

It doesn't have a build directory. In my build, it couldn't find libssl.a or libcrypto.a but these libraries were located in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/, in Ubuntu 16.04. I think you need to modify some of the gcc commands in that makefile to use that library location.
