Hi Ryo and Martin! Thanks for your replies.On Wed, Oct 3, 2018 at 9:44 PM Ryo Furue <furue@xxxxxxxxxx> wrote:Hi Dave and Martin,It says "insert the locations of the HDF5, NetCDF, and readline directories, and java". How do I figure out what those paths are and whether or not I have the correct software installed yet?What operating system are you working on?Ubuntu.Most OSes have standard or popular packaging systems.Too bad there is none for ferret. Yeah, I have installed netcdf as a package.ncl-ncarg is already the newest version (6.3.0-6build1).nco is already the newest version (4.5.4-1build1).netcdf-bin is already the newest version (1:4.4.0-2).But that doesn't tell me where the HDF5, NetCDF, and readline directories, and java are. Packages can put libraries in various places, which file or directory am I looking for in each case?And which package should I install for HDF5? apt search HDF5 returns a million hits. I am installingh5utils/xenial 1.12.1-4 amd64hdf5-helpers/xenial-updates,xenial-security 1.8.16+docs-4ubuntu1.1 amd64hdf5-tools/xenial-updates,xenial-security 1.8.16+docs-4ubuntu1.1 amd64hdfview/xenial 2.9-5 amd64But which filename shall I search for?

there are several options:
- if the machine you are working on is your PC, this is mostly /usr/local/bin and /usr/local /lib or /usr/local/lib64. The include files are in /usr/local/include. To check this, just issue

This shows you the path to ncdump. The case this is /usr/local/bin just issue

to see the location of the netcdf-library. If you used some system installers they may be in /usr/bin, /usr/lib and so on.
The same applies for hdf5.Search for libhdf5? Yeah, that worked:root@:~# find /usr -iname '*libhdf5*'/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libhdf5_serial.so.10/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libhdf5_serial_hl.so.10.0.2/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libhdf5_serial_fortran.so.10.0.2/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libhdf5_serial_fortran.so.10/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libhdf5_serialhl_fortran.so.10/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libhdf5_serial.so.10.1.0/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libhdf5_serial_hl.so.10/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libhdf5_serialhl_fortran.so.10.0.2
- if the machine you are working on is a server, just look at the same place first. Otherwise ask the system administratorBlush. I am the system administrator. But I don't know a thing about ferret, netcdf, etc. I always use packages, almost never compile anything.root@:~# ls /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libsz*/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libsz.so.2 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libsz.so.2.0.1root@:~# ls /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libread*/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libreadline.a /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libreadline.soLooks like /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu is the answer in all cases.Thanks!Dave
