Subject: ligo_viewer installed on pianosa 

I made a test installation of ligo_viewer in /users/volodya/ligo_viewer-0.5.0c . It runs on pianosa (the Ubuntu machine) and needs Tcl/Tk 8.5.


To try it out run the following command on pianosa:

cd /users/volodya/ligo_viewer-0.5.0c/



Press "CONNECT" to connect to the NDS server and explore. There are slides describing ligo_viewer at http://volodya-project.sourceforge.net/Ligo_viewer.pdf


Installation notes:

Use /users/volodya/ligo_viewer-0.5.0c.tgz or later version - it has been updated to work with 64 bit machines.

Make sure Tcl and Tk development packages are installed. You can find required packages by running

apt-file search tclConfig.sh

apt-file search tkConfig.sh

If apt-file returns empty output run apt-file update

Unpack ligo_viewer-0.5.0c.tgz, change into the created directory.

Run the following command to configure:

export CFLAGS=-I/usr/include/tcl8.5
./configure --with-tcl=/usr/lib/tcl8.5/ --with-tk=/usr/lib/tk8.5/

This works on Ubuntu machines. --with-tcl and --with-tk should point to the directories containing tclConfig.sh and tkConfig.sh correspondingly.

Run "make".

You can test the compilation with ./ligo_viewer.no_install

If everything works install with make install

If Tcl/Tk 8.5 is unavailable it should work with Tcl/Tk 8.3 or 8.4
