I need help to fix a Quantum Espresso installation error in Linux

In summary: I'm now able to proceed with the installation process.In summary, it seems that the error in installation was caused by a bug in the script which changed the directory name from "Quantum Espresso" to "Espresso". By removing the space from the directory name, the installation was successful.

TL;DR Summary

I'm a M.Sc physics student and I need to use quantum espresso for my research project . I tried the same procedure I used to install it on the system at home as I did for the one at the College but i keep getting the same error . I can't find why . I'm also new to linux .
I'm using ubuntu and I have installed the other libraries. it shows that configure is successful but the make all command shows error.

I don't have any experience with the software you are installing, but it could help others (who know about this software) understand the issue better if you provided the following:
  1. What is the error you are getting?
  2. What is the "procedure"? You should mention the steps you followed for installation.
  3. Which "other libraries" are you referring to? Why do you think they might be related to this software and hampering the installation?
  4. Please put the contents of the text file directly in the post. You can paste the contents within [CODE] ... [/CODE] tags (without the dots in the middle).

It looks like a bug in the script is mangling the directory name, changing "Quantum Espresso" to " Espresso". Try removing the space from the name of the directory to work around it.
