Application problems associated with missing libGLcore.so.1 file

Dear list

I have come across a problem that I seem to be going in circles to try to resolve.

I'd appreciate any help you might be able to offer.

I am unable to launch various apps (e.g. chromium, amarok, ...) apparently because I lack a given library file - libGLcore.so.1

I couldn't find anything under an apt-cache search, so searched it on the Debian website and found a number of nvidia-related packages that contain this library file. All good.

I then attempt the following:

~$ sudo apt-get install libgl1-nvidia-glx

and I am at a loss as to how to fix it. I don't even know how to start processing this. I'm obviously happy to do the grunt work, but how do I debug this & find a resolution?

Thanks for any help.
