Unhappy the question of ngspice.I confused!


I use the ubuntu10.04,and download the ng-spice-rework-20.tar.gz,I use:
./configure --enable-xgraph --with-readline=yes
but it tells me "error: Couldn't find GNU readline headers."
and can't 'make' ,how can I solve it?

I also tried:
./configure --enable-x --with-x
make
sudo make install
but it tells me "no graphics interface" However I want the graphics interface .

I had added the following libraries:
g++
libgtk2.0-dev
libxaw7-dev

You can download it:http://sourceforge.net/projects/ngspice/
Thank you!

Welcome to LQ. .. ..

This will bring you a little further ...

sudo apt-get install \
libreadline6-dev libx11-dev libice-dev libxext-dev libxmu-dev

./configure \
--enable-xgraph --with-readline=yes --enable-x --with-x
.. is OK.

Well, what could possibly not have been installed ?
( I have no errors at all with ngspice / Ubuntu 10.04.)

May be : sudo apt-get install bison libncurses5-dev

Besides that :
Better start from scratch in /home/<name>/tmp/.
' /tmp/ ' and other directories outside $HOME
are not meant to be used for building software.

And about xgraph :
xgraph is an old application ( mostly 2004.)
Usually 'ygraph' or 'pgplot' are used instead.
..

About ngSpice : you can also install version "20-1" with Synaptic.
Or 'apt-get install ngspice easyspice gspiceui'

'easyspice' and 'gspiceui' are two GUIs for *Spice.
( You will probably not be able to build the old (2003) xspice
present in ngspice-21/src/ ).

At first I have the same question as genime: Couldn't find GNU readline headers,
but after I did what Knudfl told me I also confronted the question and it displays:
make[3]: *** [xgX.o] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/tmp/ng-spice-rework-20/ngspice-20/xgraph'
make[2]: *** [all] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/tmp/ng-spice-rework-20/ngspice-20/xgraph'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/ng-spice-rework-20/ngspice-20'
make: *** [all] Error 2


but I use sudo make and I can make it.
however, I launched ngspice and I can not use plot, it tells me:
Can't open viewport for graphics.

How can I solve it.
Thank you!

@ dhytxz, post # 8 : Welcome to LQ.

First : /tmp/ should not be used for building software.
( The use of /tmp/ may alter the /tmp/ permissions.)
The default build location is /home/<name>/tmp/
( Or any other folder in /home/<name>/ ).

sudo apt-get install ngspice : Will install ngspice (20-1)
http://packages.ubuntu.com/maverick/ngspice ( ng-spice-rework )

Building ng-spice-rework http://sourceforge.net/projects/ngspice/files/
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ngsp...ar.gz/download
cd ngspice-22/ &&
./configure --enable-xgraph --with-readline=yes --enable-x --with-x
&& make && sudo make install

Commands : ngspice ; ngspice 1 -> help : Will open the help GUI.
ngspice 2 -> plot <any-number> : Will open the plot GUI.
