I'm on Ubuntu 11.1 trying to set up a GIS box with FWTools 2.0.6, the most current stable release. My install fails after downloading the correct FWTools package, un-tarring it to /usr/local/, and running the install.sh file.
The whole error message is: "./install.sh: 33: bin/python: not found."
An error message like this raises more questions than it answers for this Ubuntu noob. How can I differentiate between:
a dependency problem concerning my current python version;
an issue with the dll called 'python' in the /bin/ folder of the app;
a simple path mix-up;
or something else entirely?
Of course I'd like to get the tools working but more importantly I need to understand how to poke around for answers given what looks like an ambiguous error message. Is it just a matter of starting with the most likely culprit?
thanks and thanks again,
oh, and here are the set-up instructions:
% tar xzvf FWTools-linux-0.9.5.tar.gz
