I am new here.. especially on using Ubuntu..

I am currently using virtualbox to run Ubuntu.. I am trying to install triangle quake which is a A Two-Dimensional Quality Mesh Generator and Delaunay Triangulator.

-> http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~quake/triangle.html ->

according to this site: https://www.howtoinstall.co/en/ubuntu/trusty/triangle-bin

All I need to do is update then install it using terminal, I have been doing it but still nothing is installed? there are no error message at all!!

I am already a superuser(if ever wonder if that is the cause)

I installed both 16 & 14 ubuntu version in my virtualbox. & still has no improvement.. is there any method to install it that I missed?

please help me..

  • Are you sure that it's not installed? What is the output of which triangle? – Arronical May 5 '17 at 8:34

Triangle is provided from the Ubuntu Multiverse software repository. After we had enabled the Multiverse repository it can be installed with:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install triangle-bin

The installed application triangle will be called from the command line:

triangle  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-visual  visual]  [-window]
   [-root] [-delay number] [-ncolors number] [-fps]

For options see the manpage for triangle.
