Prerequisites for installation on Ubuntu systems

Error: Failed to load processor NewsFlash
No macro or processor named 'NewsFlash' found

Please be sure that you have the following packages installed:

  • make
  • libmotif-dev
  • libc6-dev
  • tcsh
  • xterm
  • rlwrap
  • x11proto-core-dev
  • x11proto-print-dev
  • x11proto-xext-dev
  • libxt-dev
  • libx11-dev
  • xutils-dev
  • libxext-dev
  • libxpm-dev
  • xfonts-100dpi
  • xfonts-75dpi
  • xfs

If you don't use the Adapt Manager, enter the command

sudo apt-get install make libmotif-dev libc6-dev tcsh xterm rlwrap x11proto-core-dev x11proto-print-dev x11proto-xext-dev libxt-dev libx11-dev xutils-dev libxext-dev libxpm-dev xfonts-100dpi xfonts-75dpi xfs

and follow the instructions.

Now proceed with download and installation of SH/SHM.

Known issues

  • Ubuntu 10+: some fprintf format warnings during compilation.
  • Ubuntu 9.x and 10.x: Motif libraries included are not compatible to SH/SHM. You can use the Ubuntu 8.04's libs as a quick and dirty fix (details see ticket #12).
