I am sorry to have to post a new thread but I promisse I have done my homework on how to installing/compiling new applications in Ubuntu by the command line and despite my various frustations I am not yet able to accomplish this particular installation by myself. So I would like to acknowledge that I very much appreciate your help!
I am trying to install this application to my Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit system: http://mrbayes.sourceforge.net/download.php
So I download the package mrbayes-3.2.1.tar.gz and decompress it, creating a folder called mrbayes-3.2.1 in Downloads folder.
When I try to move on with the compilation instructions of the application wiki-site, which next step would be to ./configure installation, it does not work in my terminal:
<<SNAPSHOT OF THE APPLICATION WEBSITE INSTRUCTIONS ON TO HOW PROCEED IN COMPILING THE FILES>>
<<CERTIFYING I UNPACKED THE PACKAGE AND CREATED ITS FOLDER>>
<<TRYING TO MAKE IT RUN ./CONFIG COMMAND IN MRBAYES-3.2.1 FOLDER AND THEN ALSO IN MRBAYES-3.2.1/USR FOLDER WHICH SEEMS TO CONTAINS MANY SCRIPTS>>
As you can see from the above pictures, I tried to do as the website instructions said (and all imaginable variations I could come up with) but still I do not know why these errors messages appear in terminal. Why doesn't ./config work? I need install this software for my end-of-graduation theses so any help will be very much appreciated!
