I run ROOT 6.04/12 on ubuntu 16.04. I want to be able to use python along with my ROOT installation. But the only python bindings I could find are “libroot-bindings-5.34”. Can I use that in my case with ROOT 6.04 too?
Thanks for your help and have a good day.

Well, ROOT 6.04/12 is pretty old.
You’d better try one of the most recent ROOT versions.
The ROOT team provides ready-to-use binary distributions for some systems, including various Ubuntu versions, which you just need to download and unpack.
What concerns the “system-provided” ROOT version, see:
Honestly speaking, sooner or later, you will learn by hard that the policy of using a “system-provided” ROOT version (e.g. in “/usr/[bin|lib]” or “/usr/local/[bin|lib]”) is a dead end.
You will learn that you need something like three different versions of ROOT - just because something that works with a particular ROOT version is not working with another ones, or because some piece of your additional, experiment / analysis specific, software explicitly requires a particular ROOT version.
