I also recall having some problems running the graphical version of
Stata on Ubuntu without making the changes Roland suggests below.
Stata would crash when doing things like pressing certain buttons in
the gui.

I do not know of a downside to running the dynamically linked version
other than that it takes some extra TLC to get it setup.

Cheers,
Andrew
