I installed demeter recently under 16.04 lts. In response to Juan's issues, I described what I did here:


One additional deviation was that I had already installed gfortran and gunplot (sudo apt install)

Matt noted in the next message that a larch issue needs addressing when importing files


but the ifeffit backend works.

I haven't tried everything, but reading and processing a file in Athena works fine.

In my struggle to install demeter under ubuntu 16.04 I'm slowly

installed following the first line of the protocol were incomplete. I
have redone this and have now managed to build the dathena and other
files, but when I want to start it I get the following error message:

any ideas what might be the problem?

That seems to be saying that Graphics::GnuplotIF is not installed.

It should have been installed when you did the "./Build installdeps" step.
