I’m currently struggling with the installation of Root. I downloaded the source file and I compiled it following this guide: https://techforcurious.website/cern-root-installation-ubuntu-18-04-enabling-libraries/
with the exception of the last part where it asks to edit the
.bashrc file with:
export ROOTSYS=/home/..... export PATH=$ROOTSYS/bin:$PATH export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ROOTSYS/lib/:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
where I instead used
alias root='source /home/...../bin/thisroot.sh'
At first all worked: running
$ root in every path would start the framework, but after closing the shell and trying again nothing would happen. I tried to run
$ root again and even executing
$ source thisroot.sh in the installation directory no longer works…
There is no Root logo and the shell returns no errors.
How can I solve this problem?
ROOT Version: 6.18
Platform: Ubuntu 18.04 x64
