Not able to install NS-2 in Jaunty

Hi.. I installed NS-2 in Hardy Heron with this tutorial and it worked.

Now I'm using Jaunty and I tried to install NS-2 and I followed the same steps as in the link pasted above. After all the installation process is done, when I type ns, it says ns is not installed.

Plz help.. Its urgent..

From the site:

Possible error messages

If you typed "ns" and got the following:

The program 'ns' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
sudo apt-get install host '''(don't do this)'''
Make sure you have the 'universe' component enabled
bash: ns: command not found

It probably means the environment variables haven't been set correctly. Make sure the ~/.bashrc file has been edited correctly and that it has either been source'd as described above or that the system has been rebooted.


This error also occurs when you are still working in the same Terminal. Open a new Terminal and type 'ns'
