    First, install the package build-essential. It will give you the essential build tools to compile from source.

    Then install libplot-dev, libgtk2.0-dev, libglade2-dev, libncurses5-dev, libreadline5-dev... Do you see the pattern?

    Re: PSPP - adding graphic interface

    Hi folks,


    Thanks for your advice.


    To my surprise after installing xserver-xorg-core and xorg PSPP GUI can be started by running "psppire" on terminal with following table displayed;
    Code:
    Untitled0 -- PSPP Data Edition (on vzd4.satimis.com)
    I don't need to install those packages. I have no idea what they are used for as described on the manual.

    Did you really compile from source or did you find a binary package?

    Hi Martin,


    I installed PSPP from the package on Debian repo, not from source.

    GTK+ et cetera are on the list of dependencies for pspp (from here), so you probably have them installed already. Note that the development packages (those ending with -dev) are only needed for building from source.
