    1313 * '''tcsh''': this shell is needed to run the GSAS script. If you will only use EXPGUI, this is not needed. It does not seem to be loaded by default. The presence of this can be tested by typing `ls /bin/tcsh`. To load the package on !RedHat, use {{{yum install tcsh}}}

    15  * '''Tcl/Tk & BLT''': EXPGUI requires the Tcl/Tk interpreter to run. In addition, the BLT graphics package is required for plots, such as in program LIVEPLOT (EXPGUI can be run without this). It is possible to load Tcl/Tk and BLT on most versions of Linux, but I have seen bugs with some releases of BLT for Tcl/Tk 8.5. This GSAS/EXPGUI distribution comes with a version of Tcl/Tk (file `.../gsas/exe/ncnrpack`), but this has problems on some platforms:

    1616    * Fedora core 10: the `.../gsas/exe/ncnrpack` image fails, but the blt.i386 (2.4-28.z.fc10) package works fine.
    1717    * Fedora core 12: the initial yum-loaded version of BLT failed. Be sure to upgrade to blt.i686 (2.4-'''32'''.z.fc12 or later); the `.../gsas/exe/ncnrpack` also image works fine on FC12, but has less attractive fonts.
     
    2929 * mkdir ~/gsas
    3030 * cd ~/gsas
    31  * curl !http://11bm.xray.aps.anl.gov/downloads/gsas/svnload/gsassvnlinux.tar.gz | tar xvzf -
     31 * curl !https://subversion.xray.aps.anl.gov/EXPGUI/gsas/linux/dist/bootstrap.py > bootstrap.py
    3232 * python bootstrap.py
    33 There are many other ways, using GUI tools, to accomplish the same tasks. If curl cannot access the file, you can download http://11bm.xray.aps.anl.gov/downloads/gsas/svnload/gsassvnlinux.tar.gz and expand that into the location where GSAS and EXPGUI will be installed. Then run the bootstrap.py file contained in that directory. Note that if curl fails, but a web browser works, you probably have a web proxy in use. See [wiki:News2012May4 the discussion on proxies] for more on configuring that.

    35 It should be noted that GSAS and EXPGUI desktop shortcuts are created for Gnome using the distributed Tcl/Tk version. I am not sure what other mechanisms are available for app integration on KDE, etc., but am happy to get input.
