I am using Ubuntu 10.10 and with the installation as described in my
earlier post Stata works OK. I have not updated to 11.04. I wonder if
the reason why Stata does not work has to do with the GUI Unity? I
have understood that it is possible to use Gnome also in 11.04 and
that I can choose this at starting up the system. If not I will not
upgrade until I understand what you mean by "compile and install the
tiff-3.7.4 binaries from source". Can you give somewhat more detailed
instructions how this is done?

Greetings
Roland
