Dear SAC users, When setting up the program I am not able to initialize environment or set up MATLAB. I tried to use Ubuntu (Linux) to set up sac as an admin, and everything sets up but it says ‘E: can’t find package sac’. However, I have downloaded the file and followed the steps and it works with my system. What can I do to fix this issue? Sent from Mail for Windows 10
