ROOT installation on Ubuntu 14.04

Hello,
I am having some trouble installing ROOT6 on Ubuntu 14.04. I removed the previous version and tried diverse installations but it doesn’t seem to work.
The last thing I tried was posted on this forum :

[code]sudo apt-get install git dpkg-dev make g++ gcc binutils libx11-dev libxpm-dev
libxft-dev libxext-dev
sudo apt-get install gfortran libssl-dev libpcre3-dev
xlibmesa-glu-dev libglew1.5-dev libftgl-dev
libmysqlclient-dev libfftw3-dev cfitsio-dev
graphviz-dev libavahi-compat-libdnssd-dev
libldap2-dev python-dev libxml2-dev libkrb5-dev
libgsl0-dev libqt4-dev ccache

sudo mkdir /opt/root6_06_02
cd /opt/root6
sudo git clone http://root.cern.ch/git/root.git root6_src
mkdir root_build
cd root_build
sudo cmake -Droofit=ON -Dhttp=ON -Dccache=ON /opt/root6_06_02/root6_src/[/code]

I find it weird already that I had to add the “sudo” for the last commands, but I had a denied permission without it. On the terminal, I could see that some test failed, here is what I saw :

Then I tried to test it :

[code]mbigot@IRAM-FU-005714:/opt/root6_06_02/root_build$ . /usr/local/bin/thisroot.sh
mbigot@IRAM-FU-005714:/opt/root6_06_02/root_build$ cd

Type “help”, “copyright”, “credits” or “license” for more information.

import root
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 1, in
ImportError: No module named root

[/code]

Finally, whenever I open a new terminal now, I get the following message :

ERROR: must cd where/root/is befor calling . bin/thisroot.sh for this version of bash ! /usr/local/bin/thisroot.sh: line 39 : return: " return " is only allowed in a function or a script executed by "source "
(message translated so the terms might not be exact)

I already got this message in a previous installation and used a fix found for a previous version but it didn’t seem to work. I must say that I don’t understand quite well what I’m doing during the installation so I may have done something wrong. Could you help me to fix it, please?

Thanks already,

The ‘official’ building instructions are in root.cern.ch/installing-root-source
What you find in different post can probably be very good but also induce you to some errors. In particular the build area should not be in write projected area such that you are forced to use sudo to do anything. You can build anywhere and then install with

cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/root6_06_02 -P cmake_install.cmake

The python module is ROOT (in uppercase). So

import ROOT

should work.

Concerning the message you get sourcing thisroot.sh it has to do with the version of your shell (bash??). What is the version?

bash --version

So I uninstalled root and tried again the installation following the steps of the link you gave me.
I still have the same falures for the tests.
Here is what I’ve done :

I also tried beforehand

in the build repertory but it felt like I was in the wrong place. Should I have done it in the source directory?

The bash version is 4.3.11(1), release (x86-64-pc-linux-gnu)

You are missing the dot. The right command is:

Taking your first post as reference, it should work if you do:

sudo apt-get install git dpkg-dev make g++ gcc binutils libx11-dev libxpm-dev \
libxft-dev libxext-dev
sudo apt-get install gfortran libssl-dev libpcre3-dev \

libmysqlclient-dev libfftw3-dev cfitsio-dev \
graphviz-dev libavahi-compat-libdnssd-dev \
libldap2-dev python-dev libxml2-dev libkrb5-dev \
libgsl0-dev libqt4-dev ccache

sudo mkdir /opt/root6
sudo chown myusername /opt/root6
#No need to use sudo anymore.
#Alternatively, just do mkdir /home/myuser/root6 and replace below all /opt/root6
cd /opt/root6
git clone http://root.cern.ch/git/root.git root6_src
cmake -Droofit=ON -Dhttp=ON -Dccache=ON /opt/root6/root6_src/
cmake --build .
#Or instead: make -j8
source /opt/root6/bin/thisroot.sh
# Or add previous line in your ~/.bashrc

#Test if it works

I don’t really understand but maybe the problem lies with python and not root

It is with capital letters!

For the notebook option, you may have to install also

sudo apt-get install python-pip
sudo pip install jupyter metakernel zmq functools32 terminado

Yes, actually it seems to work with capital letters:

[code]mbigot@IRAM-FU-005714:~$ python
Python 2.7.6 (default, Jun 22 2015, 17:58:13)
[GCC 4.8.2] on linux2
Type “help”, “copyright”, “credits” or “license” for more information.

import ROOT
exit()[/code]

The notebook thing, however, is still not working, even with the installations I made:

mbigot@IRAM-FU-005714:~$ root --notebook Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/local/bin/ipython", line 4, in <module> from IPython import start_ipython File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/IPython/__init__.py", line 48, in <module> from .core.application import Application File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/IPython/core/application.py", line 24, in <module> from IPython.core import release, crashhandler File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/IPython/core/crashhandler.py", line 28, in <module> from IPython.core import ultratb File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/IPython/core/ultratb.py", line 121, in <module> from IPython.utils.terminal import get_terminal_size File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/IPython/utils/terminal.py", line 27, in <module> import backports.shutil_get_terminal_size ImportError: No module named shutil_get_terminal_size

Which ipython version do you have?

sudo pip install --upgrade jupyter
pip list
ipython --version
python -m IPython --version

Can anyone help me to install successfully this in ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

Kind regards

This is a duplicate of


sft.its.cern.ch/jira/browse/ROOT-6903

Did you install the prerequisites?
root.cern.ch/build-prerequisites

What does the command

locate freetype.h

say?

The easy workaround is:

cd /usr/include
sudo ln -s freetype2 freetype

Thanks it seems to work now !

Nice.

Mark please as solved (green tick).
