I get the compressed sac file. Then, following the instructions on the email I decompress the sofware but install is a problem for me. Ubuntu makes me no easy install the software as expected on /usr/local/ the reason is, I guess, the permitions to work with folders on this part of the system. It is possible to install and work with the software on another path? for example /home/ewm/? I try to do this way, I modify the .sh script but when I run sac from the terminal I been ask to install this software using apt-get install, is this appropriate or I am doing something so wrong?

    Yes, absolutely yes, you can install sac software in /home/ewm
    for example /home/ewm/?

    I try to do this way, I modify the .sh script but when I run sac from the terminal I been ask to install this software using apt-get install, is this appropriate or I am doing something so wrong?

    For example in my Centos Box, i have sac installed in /home/milton/Soft/sac
    in my ~/.bashrc have the lines:

    # SAC Environment variables
    export SACHOME=$HOME/Soft/sac
    . ${SACHOME}/bin/sacinit.sh


    my sacinit.sh file contains (the principal part):

    # Initialize the SAC Environment (only SACHOME may need to be changed)
    export SACHOME=$HOME/Soft/sac
    export PATH=${PATH}:${SACHOME}/bin
    export SACAUX=${SACHOME}/aux

    HTH,

    Milton
