Problem in installing GRACE on cent OS

I was trying to install GRACE in cent OS 6.0 but it was showing so much dependencies problem especially Motif problem , so I updated my OS and installed openmotif-devel. it seems like all are present in the system but when iam configuring grace its not taking.

google-chrome | 951 B 00:00
google-chrome/primary | 1.5 kB 00:00
google-chrome 3/3
Setting up Install Process
Package 2:libpng-devel-1.2.49-1.el6_2.i686 already installed and latest version
Package libjpeg-devel-6b-46.el6.i686 already installed and latest version
Package openmotif-devel-2.3.3-4.el6.i686 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do

i dont know wheather i have to give path for those installed libraries or not (but i think the configure file can able to recognise those)

if this problem solves , i can be able to move fast in my work.
can any one please tell me where the mistake is?

Welcome to LQ.

1) Download grace
2) # yum localinstall --nogpgcheck grace-5.1.22-1pclos2007.i586.rpm


The command 'xmgrace' will open grace on CentOS 6.

Or : Menu : Applications > Education > Grace
