Hello,

This is Urvashi. I have installed a version of Fedora on my laptop and need
help with installing sac on it. I have extracted the sac folder into
/usr/local/ and have changed the file ./bashrc for setting the environment
variables according to the instructions given in the readme folder. However
I am not able to understand how to start the installation (which executable
to run and using what commands) and also , should i run in form the
/usr/local/sac/bin folder or from somewhere else. I am a bit new to Linux
and maybe , that is why I am not able to understand.

Thank you,

Urvashi.

    Hi,
    OK, not forget "sourcing" your .bashrc file, so you activate
    the new variables, to do:
    source ~/.bashrc.

    After verify that the following variables point to where live
    sac software /usr/local/sac

    To do:

    echo $SACHOME
    echo $SACAUX

    If all is correct you can start sac typing:

    sac

    When running try:

    funcgen seismogram
    plot

    If appear errors and not plot the problem can be sac need the
    x11-fonts package installed in you system.

    Cheers,

    Milton
