I’m using a linux distro called Elementary, which I think is Ubuntu-based.
Whenever I try to run with vscode, it shows me this error:

Exception has occurred: CLR/System.TypeInitializationException
An exception of type ‘System.TypeInitializationException’ occurred in Aspose.Words.dll but was not handled in user code: 'The type initializer for ‘ ’ threw an exception.’
Inner exceptions found, see $exception in variables window for more details.
Innermost exception System.DllNotFoundException : Unable to load DLL ‘libSkiaSharp’: The specified module or one of its dependencies could not be found.
(Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E)
at SkiaSharp.SkiaApi.sk_colortype_get_default_8888()
at SkiaSharp.SKImageInfo…cctor()

How do I solve this issue?

I have Aspose 19.10 installed.


If Aspose.Words for .NET Standard is intended to be used in Linux environment, an additional NuGet package should be referenced to make it work correctly with graphics: SkiaSharp.NativeAssets.Linux for Ubuntu (it also should work on most Debian-based Linux distributions) or Goelze.SkiaSharp.NativeAssets.AlpineLinux for Alpine Linux. Hope, this helps.
