How to convert HDF5 to ROOT

_ROOT Version:6.08
_Platform:Ubuntu 16.10
_Compiler: root c/c++

Is there a software to convert HDF5 file to root file?

I used the software provided in this link:

but I have problem with the HDF5 libraries (required).

Is there someone that know wich kind of library must be installed and how can be installed?
Many thanks in advance for your support,
Kind regards,
