I’d love to know how to install Root on Gutsy… i tried to use the suggested repo on ubuntu forums and to compile source, without success.
I mean, the programs starts, but it fails when trying to use Minuit for some fits…
…and it’s very upsetting watching Win users laughing cuz their Root work great…
Did you try installing from source? this is a very simple process:
svn co http://root.cern.ch/svn/root/trunk root
I have root v5.18.00 and v5.19.02 running on my notebook with gutsy installed. It runs without problems (also fitting). I simply installed the root binaries made for SL4.
thank you brun & kind aus die grösse Deutschland ich liebe so sehr for the interest
i tried to follow brun’s tips (everything seemed to work), and than to export the paths but when i try to run the command root on the terminal it tells me
bash: root: command not found
what should i do?
thanks a lot

although 5.17 is a development release I use it and it works fine.
After you install the root package there are minuit plugins for gutsy available.
just check your synaptic. Ben.
thank you jal!!!
i already had followed that guide, without success. But those libs to add were the key, now everything’s working great!!
thanks a lot
