    Gephi

    Hi,

    Gephi is a free charting software package. I couldn't find it in the Ubuntu Software Center.

    These are the instructions for installing, and I couldn't accomplish it.

    https://gephi.org/users/install/

    I'd appreciate any friendly help.

    Thanks, as always!

    Garry

    Hello!

    What part couldn't you do?

    (I have a pretty good idea if you followed those instructions, but I won't make an assumption.)

    Re: Gephi

    Step 1 is: "Install Sun Java via Synaptic, do a Quick Search Search for “sun java” and install the jre and jdk. Do not forget to run update-alternatives –config java and update-alternatives –config javac."

    I endeavored to do "Install Sun Java via Synaptic, do a Quick Search Search for “sun java” and install the jre and jdk."

    I went to the Synaptic link, did the search, and I was lost.

    Instead, I installed Synaptic via the Ubuntu Software Center.

    Then I tried to run: update-alternatives –config java in a terminal,
    and got this error message: "unknown argument `–config' ".

    Then I asked for help on this forum.

    Thanks.

    Thought that was it.

    Java is no longer in the Ubuntu repo, nor anyone else's because Oracle (which now owns Java - there is no longer any such thing as Sun Java) took its ball back home.

    Please have a look at the wiki in my signature for how to install it using webupd8.org's PPA.

    Re: Gephi

    Thanks, QIII.

    I'm afraid that advice is a little too cryptic for me.

    I have no foundation upon which to solve my own problem.

    Thanks, again.

    Re: Gephi

    Just go to the wiki and look under the command line installation section. I think the text of the link I put there is "Using webupd8.org's strikingly simple method."

    Cut and paste three commands as instructed at that website in the terminal and Oracle Java will be installed for you.

    Re: Gephi

    So far so good! Now to install Gephi...

    For the benefit of any future persons referencing this thread, these are the three commands required, from this link http://www.webupd8.org/2012/01/insta...buntu-via.html:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer

    Re: Gephi

    I wish you well from here. That application and its instruction page seem very old, so there is no guarantee it will work.

    Keeping my fingers crossed.

    Re: Gephi

    After I extracted the download, all I had to do was run Gephi from the bin folder.

    Thanks!!
