In the page of prerequisites, section Ubuntu, optional packages (sudo apt-get …), the package cfitsio-dev is not found by the package manager. It should read, at least for ubuntu 16.04, libcfitsio-dev.
Maybe, “cmake” should be added also in the list of required packages.
thanks for the suggestions: we upgraded the page.
Thanks. But I think the change is still missing in this part:
sudo apt-get install gfortran libssl-dev libpcre3-dev
xlibmesa-glu-dev libglew1.5-dev libftgl-dev
libmysqlclient-dev libfftw3-dev cfitsio-dev [/code]
