Re: st: Installation problems
Thanks for your message and link; I have finally managed to install STATA 9 by copying the files to the hdd and then following the instructions.
Now I have come up another problem: xstata (GUI) does not work [but the console version works fine]. I get the error message to the effect that libgtk-1.2.0 could not be found, etc. It seems STATA 9 works with old libraries while the current versions in Linux distros will be gtk-2.0.
When I talked to Tech Support, they suggested that I download the gtk-1.2 compatible libraries and save them in the proper place in my hard disk.
Do you know where I can find those libraries? And where exactly do I save them in my computer? I am using Ubuntu 6.06.
Thanks in advance.
