ovito not startable : Auto configuration failed - QMutex: destroying locked mutex

Hi,

I'd like to draw your attention on this old issue : https://gitlab.com/stuko/ovito/-/issues/131

It is still current to me (Fedora 31), with the same error message as described in the issue.

140572110413568:error:25066067:DSO support routines:DLFCN_LOAD:could not load the shared library:dso_dlfcn.c:162:filename(libssl_conf.so): libssl_conf.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

QMutex: destroying locked mutex
Segmentation fault

As I mentioned, a workaround is running ovito with the command export OPENSSL_CONF=/etc/ssl/; ovito

Though, I thought you'd want to be aware that it is still occuring (my linux installation is rather old now), and the workaround could be useful to anyone looking for a fix on this forum.

Best,
