Installing ROOT-Cern


Hello,

I'm a Ubuntu user, and I'm trying to install the ROOT software (http://root.cern.ch/drupal/).

I'm follwing all the steps, like "./configure", "make" and "make install". After that, I need to type the command "source path/root/bin/thisroot.sh", so I can type "root" from anywhere and get the software. It works at first glance, but when I close the terminal and open again, the "root" command doesn't work anymore, and I have to type "source path/root/bin/thisroot.sh" again for it to work.

Another issue is that I've installed all the dependencies from the website, and still cannot use some packages from the software, like the Geometry package.

Is there someone who uses the ROOT software and know how to deal with these problems??

Thanks a lot.

Simply:

Code:
sudo apt-get install root-system
or open Ubuntu Software Center, search for root-system, click it.

Well, it doesn't work on Ubuntu 12.04.

It doesn't have any installation candidate, even on Ubuntu Software Center.

Thanks anyway.

Apologies, I did not realize you were using an older Ubuntu release. Unfortunately I do not have direct experience with this software, good luck!

Thanks a lot!

Apparently, the 12.10 version of Ubuntu has this software on the sources, and that's one I really need on my work. So now I'm upgrading to Ubuntu 12.10, so I can work with ROOT.

If it works,I'll let you know

Thanks again.
