The Opendtect project is open source and still I have problems with the installation. When I run the installer, it does open a terminal for a second and then disappears. It has no manuals and few topics, the installation manual is not clear at all either.

So, how do I install Opendtect in Ubuntu 12.04?

Open a Terminal by hitting Ctrl Alt T and run the following commands:

sudo apt-get install csh
chmod a+x

This will install the C shell, which is needed to run the OpendTect installer.

Then the installer is fetched and saved to your home directory, marked as executable, and executed.
