Hi Everyone,
   I am running galaxy locally (ubuntu 11.04) and I am having problem with
samtools. When I am running TopHat I get an error message saying that could
not locate samtools. Of course I did everything described in
 Here is the error message:

Error in tophat:

Error locating program: samtools

When I run "make" in the samtools directory I also get an error message:

koala2@aedes:~/Desktop/galaxy/samtools$ make

make[1]: *** [lib-recur] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/koala2/Desktop/galaxy/samtools'
make: *** [all-recur] Error 1

I also followed the installation guide from samtools, but did not work

Unfortunately I found myself spending more time installing tools than using
it. Yes I am a newbie.
Thank you.
