first, you need next to the packages also the respective development packages in Ubuntu, so tcl-dev, fftw-dev and so on. However, since you can compile, you have somewhere the necessary header files.

As the error message tells, your dynamic loader cannot find the, which means that either you build Espresso as 32-bit executable, or your is incorrectly setup, although Ubuntu does that in general automatically.

With file Espresso, you can find out whether it really is a 64-bit executable. With ldd -v Espresso, you can figure out what libraries the dynamic linker actually considers.

Dear all,

I hope that everyone is OK!

I have problem in installing ESPResSo on my new machine. It says that tcl is not found. I would be grateful if someone can help me about this.

When I try "answer 3" in the FAQ, the compilation goes on well, but, then I have problem in running ESPResSo. I get this error:

/home/nikoofard/sources/espresso-3.1.1/Espresso: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I have a 64-bit machine, running a 64-bit linux. I have installed tcl, tk and fftw, via the command "sudo apt-get install tcl8.4/tk8.4/fftw3". So tcl and tk libraries are the 64-bit version and placed in one of the default system paths "/usr/lib".

I have attached the log file to this email. Also the information about the tcl library is:

address@hidden:/usr/lib$ file ELF 64-bit LSB shared object, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, BuildID[sha1]=0x0c8e7fafc1b0feb36c1ab55d1753513a745ea24f, stripped

I am new to Ubuntu and this is possible that I have made some mistakes in this respect.

Sorry for this long description!

Many thanks in advance,
