DISLIN Installation Process for Ubuntu Linux

  1. Sep 13, 2014 #1
    I am currently trying to install DISLIN for use with Fortran90 on Ubuntu, following the steps from DISLIN; - ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/grafik/dislin/linux/i586_64/README.I586_64

    RPM Distribution Installation was successful.
    This is not the case however for DEB Distribution of DISLIN.

    INPUT: sudo dpkg -i dislin-10.4.linux.i586_64.deb

    OUTPUT: dpkg: error processing archive dislin-10.4.linux.i586_64.deb (--install):
    cannot access archive: No such file or directory
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    dislin-10.4.linux.9586_64.deb


    Don't know what my issue is and can;t seem to find much elsewhere, so any help Im sure would benefit more than just myself.
    Many thanks to all

    Wouldn't it be better to join the DISLIN discussion group and ask for help there?

    ... dpkg could not find the package you want to install.
    either put the deb in dpkg's default install path or provide the path to the deb in the commandline

    why are you installing both rpm and deb versions?
