I was trying to run NGS QC Toolkit in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64 bit version. But, after executing the command, an error shows that states it cannot find module String::Approx and needs to be installed even though I have installed it successfully.

Here is the command which I used:

perl ~/Programs/NGSQCToolkit_v2.3/QC/IlluQC_PRLL.pl -c 2 -pe /home/shrujan/Desktop/NGS_Shrujan/SRR072111_1.fastq /home/shrujan/Desktop/NGS_Shrujan/SRR072111_2.fastq 2 
A Error:
    Can not find module 'String::Approx'
    Install it and try again

Please guide me in resolving this issue.

    Do you have the libstring-approx-perl package installed? – dobey Apr 18 '13 at 21:30

Execute following commands:

shrujan@ubuntu:~$ cpan

cpan[1] install String::Approx

Then try your NGSQCTool
