My instruction was incomplete. After my install Stata would crash when
I opened the do-file editor. I googled around and found this
instruction

http://jonas.ranstam.se/2010/10/24/how-to-install-stata-v11-under-ubuntu-10-10-maverick-meerkat/

It seems to be complete. The dynamic link opens much faster and is
more nice-looking.



# Create a directory for Stata 11 and install Stata here
sudo mkdir /usr/local/stata11
cd /usr/local/stata11
sudo /path-to-installation-disk/install

# Enter the license information
sudo ./stinit

# Fix some libraries
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libtiff.so.4 /usr/lib/libtiff.so.3
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libgtksourceview-2.0.so.0 /usr/lib/libgtksourceview-1.0.so.0
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libgtk2.0-0 /usr/lib/libgtk-1.2.0
sudo apt-get install libgtksourceview1.0-0
