View Full Version : GMT Problems

October 12th, 2007, 10:27 AM
Hi There

I am new to Ubuntu, I have used Suse earlier, but I got this computer at work, where Ubuntu was already installed and I am not yet sure if I keep Ubuntu and don't install Suse again, as I kind of have some problems getting used to Ubuntu..

anyway, my question concerns GMT, I have previously used it on Suse without any problems (there you install it via the GMT webpage).. Now I have obtained GMT with the package manager, but when I try to run a script, previously written in Suse, I get a problem. I try to run:

GMT pmc.nocal.hires.gmt

then I get the error:

exec: 143: /usr/lib/gmt/bin/pmc.nocal.hires.gmt: not found

so I guess something is wrong in the installation, as I am running the the file in the folder where pmc.nocal.hires.gmt lies, but somehow GMT is looking for it in its own folder..

any suggestions what I did wrong?
thank you!

I have the same problem
I was a suse user and just swithed to ubuntu 8.04. I guess GMT has to be installed manually using install_gmt script (to /usr/local i.e.)
