    VESTA (a 3D Visualization System for Electronic and Structural Analysis) Install

    Hello everybody,

    I was trying to install VESTA (http://www.geocities.jp/kmo_mma/crystal/en/vesta.html) on ubuntu. Installation part is really easy, just extracting files. But the problem comes with running.

    When I start VESTA it gives me the error:

    VESTA: error while loading shared libraries: libtiff.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    I searched for the tiff libraries and I found that hardy heron has libtiff4. When I searched for all packages from web I could not find libtiff.so.3.

    Long story short, I am in trouble

    Can you help me?

    ciao

    Sorry for taking your time. I found the answer on a web page, which is


    The solution:

    You have to make so that the system to use the newer tiff library.

    For the purpose you have to go in the following directory: /usr/lib by using cd /usr/lib/

    Then just link the libtiff.so.4 library with the libtiff.so.3 one. Just type the following:

    ln -s libtiff.so.4 libtiff.so.3


    Thanks,

    ciao

    I'm a new user trying to install VESTA and don't see VESTA_manual.pdf anywhere in the installation package. Where can I find installation instructions? Thanks!

    The PDF manual is in the documentation tab on the VESTA homepage.

    However, the PDF manual simply states that the tar.bz2 files should be extracted to a folder. Then to run VESTA, just double click on the file. But nothing happens when I double click on the file.

    p.s. I am a brand new convert to Linux (4 hours ago) and I don't know much
