Installation of the Viewer on Ubuntu

Packages to Install =

Install the following packages.

sudo apt-get install libopenscenegraph-dev
sudo apt-get install libgdal-dev
sudo apt-get install make

Download the Code

The latest version of the code is available from googlecode. Don't use the version on sourceforge.

If subversion has not been install do that now via

sudo apt-get install subversion

From your home directory, download the anuga viewer code via

svn checkout anuga-viewer

Change into the new directory anuga-viewer. From this directory build and install the viewer via

sudo make install

Finally we need to setup some environment variables.

Put the following in your .bashrc file (if you use the bash shell).

export SWOLLEN_BINDIR=/home/username/anuga-viewer/bin

(of course change /home/username to your own home directory. ) With some versions of linux you need to put this command in the file .profile

You should rerun your .bashrc file with

source .bashrc

Actually it is usually safer to fire up a new terminal to see if you have been successful in setting up the PATH and SWOLLEN_BINDIR

You can check your PATH with the command
