I would like to install the crystallographic program Coot on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, yet there only seem to exist 14.04 and 18.04 versions. I tried installing the 18.04 version, but it started to complain about the missing libraries. What I did next, is just copied the libraries from the coot folder into /usr/lib but am now stuck with:

::: DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH is

I have additionally tried running Coot from Phenix, but to no avail. Any ideas on how to resolve this issue?

I thank you kindly for all your help!

  • The version for 14.04 is more likely than that for 18.04 to work on 16.04 - glibc is generally backward compatible. Failing that, your options are to upgrade your system to 18.04, or to build Coot yourself from source. – steeldriver Mar 8 at 20:45

Try:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade -y

sudo apt-get install -f

You might have some dependencies fixed through that process. If not, please provide the log file of yours for additional troubleshooting.
