I want to install a spectral analysis tool for Ubuntu, and thought Spectrum3d looked good.
I've tried following the install instructions. As far as I understand, I am supposed to write:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nadaeck/spectrum3d
in the terminal. It doesn't work. I get the following error message:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/add-apt-repository", line 128, in <module> ppa_info = get_ppa_info_from_lp(user, ppa_name) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/softwareproperties/ppa.py", line 84, in get_ppa_info_from_lp curl.perform() pycurl.error: (7, "couldn't connect to host")
From my rudimentary understanding of linux, I should be able to write my sudo password here, but the characters I write are shown in cleartext. It never asks for my password
When this didn't work, I tried to download it from sourceforge and compile it, I also tried searching for it in the Ubuntu Software Centre, but I couldn't find it.
I downloaded the latest version and went to the folder and typed:
./configure; make; make install
I got the following output:

So, how do I just get this program up and running on my system?
